I told you today’s post would contain even more inventive and aesthetically-pleasing DIY Christmas decorations, and I am not here to disappoint. None of these crafts are overly difficult to create by the looks of it (I say this as though I’m capable of making crafts in any way, shape or form), and while I did try to share the ones that seemed the least difficult to make, be sure to check out all of the creations listed on the website as there are some ones that are pretty neat.
Again, these ideas come from countryliving.com.
“DIY Mitten Tree
- What’s the perfect use for mittens that have lost their matches? A triangular wall display that’s right at home in a mudroom or other ‘bundle up’ zone. Pin pom-pom ornaments in pastel shades to the ‘branches.’
Shiny Brite Centerpiece
- Create a two-tiered table arrangement by placing a footed tureen on a platter and filling both dishes with ornaments.
DIY Jadeite Plates Christmas Tree
- Hang dinner plates in a Christmas tree shape—on a kitchen wall, perhaps?—using adhesive plate hangers. If desired, add saucers for dimension. Secure vintage silver demitasse spoons in a starburst using wire and tiny nails.
Shiny Brite Curtain Tiebacks
- Add instant and easy flair to curtains by simply threading ribbons through the loops of a few Shiny Brites and tying them around your curtain tiebacks.
- Decorate the mantel or holiday table with a few of these easy to create festive candlesticks.
- To make: Hot-glue ornaments in assorted sizes to silver or glass candlesticks.
DIY Dried Citrus Christmas Garland
- String slices of dried citrus on a pretty plaid ribbon and layer on top of plain greenery. Drape around windows, on staircases, mantels, or a piece of furniture…
DIY Jingle Bell Runner Table Decorations
- Not only does this runner look incredibly festive, it also sounds like Christmas. (Those ‘berries’ are actually red jingle bells!)
- To make: Cut holly leaves from dark and light green card stock. Use a bone folder or wooden skewer to indent veins in leaves, then trace indents with a green colored pencil. Run down the center of the table and lay red jingle bells throughout,” the web page states.
I’m feeling inspired just reading about these DIY projects.
