Home Tips: DIY Christmas Decor

When it comes to your home’s decor, are you an avid DIY-er? Here are a few festive DIY projects to give your home some Christmas cheer!

Advent Calendar

For a twist on traditional chocolates or toy trinkets, build an Advent Calendar with a new ornament for each day that you can add to the tree!

Alternative Fireplace

Don’t have a fireplace to cozy up next to? This makeshift fire place is as easy as some chalk paint, canvas, and string, and is a fun activity for families with children who may be expecting Santa!

Hot Cocoa Bar

For hot cocoa on the ready, set up a little hot cocoa station, complete with festive toppings – marshmallows, crushed peppermint, sprinkles, and mini chocolate chips are delicious! – so that when the mood strikes, a warm and cozy drink is never far away.

Cut Out Tree Skirt

For a fun twist on your traditional tree skirt, pick out some craft store felt in your favorite color or pattern and cut a scallop-edged skirt for your tree this year!

Repurposed Wine Bottles

Swap out your old candle stick holders for these customizable wine bottle holders! Choose any bottles you want and get crafty with ribbons, twine, and craft paper!
