Everyone is in full-on Christmas mode and I’ve come across quite a few lovely ideas for homemade decorations.  Does that mean I’ll be attempting many myself?


Well, let’s say, I have managed to do just one which is about as simple as it gets but finding time for the others continues to be a challenge!  That doesn’t mean I can’t share, though, right?

So, I’ll show you mine first and then some others I’ve come across in blogland you may like to try.

A clear vase full of baubles always looks really festive but I decided to add a ribbon trim to mine just to give it some extra zshush!

Here’s some other lovely DIY projects to keep you busy!

Everyone can use a little more sparkle around the holidays so I’m loving these sequin ornaments

Blue Cricket Design created this vignette a couple of years ago but they look absolutely gorgeous and simple to recreate!  The DIY even includes the paper mache ornaments included but you can easily use store-bought ones if you are lazy like me ;)

Meera’s adorable Washi Tape Reindeer is so simple but gorgeously effective.  I love something that takes so little time but makes a big impact.

And how cute are Katie’s owl ornaments?  They would look so cute attached to holiday parcels as well.  Love the mix of patterns!

This isn’t exactly a DIY tutorial but how difficult would it be to recreate this with a branch from your garden, a bit of silver spray paint, candles and a glue gun?

Hope you enjoyed our little DIY extravaganza today!  I have to admit, I’m better at buying than I am at creating from scratch but that’s what the interwebs are for, right?

What kinds of DIY projects have you attempted this Christmas?
