How to make DIY Homemade Decorations
It’s not hard to feel overwhelmed with the need to buy new Christmas decorations every year. There’s so much to choose from, and like magpies, we are attracted to the sparkle!
However, if you’re wanting to refresh your decorations or want some fun craft ideas, check out the homemade decorations below. Less cheap, plastic items that may get thrown away next year, more money and more time with the family.
Reuse and Upcycle
Do you have a box of baubles in the attic that never get put on the tree? Why not make them into a wreath!
Want to add some sparkle? Don’t forget to look for 100% plant-based glitter.
Metal drinks can wreath
If painted with weatherproof protection, this wreath could be hung outside too and last for years to come.
Why not create a spring flower one for Easter too?
Tin tealight holders
You’ll need: Any shallow tins, wrapping paper, glue and strong twine
- Wrap the tins using the wrapping scraps
- Tie the twine around the can and knot it at the top with excess for hanging.
- Keep it safe, place a rechargeable tealight into the tin.
