Christmas DIY | Holiday Crafts | Interior Decor

It’s that time of year again when stores are decorated with Christmas decor, families are putting up the tree and hanging Christmas lights, and holiday-themed crafts and baking goes down. In honor of the festivities, I decided to throw together a few “Christmas DIY” ideas that will be sure to have your home ready for the holidays! I’ve also included a useful “must-haves” list – perfect for the master gift wrapper of the household. I love the advent calendar the most by far, and I’d also love to hear about your favorite Christmas or holiday-themed DIY. Enjoy and get crafting! 🙂
1. Pour some white paint onto a piece of paper or surface that you can throw out.
2. Hold a pine cone and, using a paintbrush, dab white paint onto its top and edges.
3. Sprinkle glitter onto the paint and set the pine cone down on its side to dry.
4. Once the painted side is dry, flip it over and do the other side.
5. After glittering the pine cone, use string or rope to tie a loop for your new ornament
1. Buy cardboard letters and a square canvas from the craft store.
2. Cover cardboard letters in contrasting fabrics using Mod Podge.
3. Paint the edge of the letters and canvas for dimension. (Red paint was used for this craft)
4. Grab a thrift store frame as a background for the letters, adhere using superglue to canvas.
5. Superglue the letters to the frame, using ribbon as an optional support for the letters. Voila!
1. Get an array of different cotton ball sizes. (Or stretch cotton to form different sized “flakes”)
2. Thread a fishing line to use for your various cotton ball snowflakes.
3. Hang the top of the fishing line to the ceiling or window frame for a snowy look.
1. Gather 25 brown paper bags. (You can cut the tops or fold them over for a smaller bag)
2. Create 3 rows using wire or string with tension, tying each of the ends to a painted frame.
3. Decorate & fill bags with goodies of your choice, making sure to number the outside.
4. Clip the bags to the rows using decorative clips or pins to complete your advent calendar!
1. Buy artificial fruit of your choice. (Dollar Store is a great place for these)
2. Find correlating glitter for holiday decor. (Shown in silver)
3. Mod Podge the glitter onto fruit and show ’em off!
