Holiday Decorating & DIY Ideas

While we all have our own holiday traditions, the decorations can always use a refresh. Whether you want to go for a more nature-inspired look or craft with glitter, you’ll find some inspiration here!

Use Nature

Take inspiration from nature for your decorating scheme. Use fresh evergreens, garlands, and wreaths combined with in-season citrus like lemons, tangerines and oranges.

Seasons Greetings

Looking for a clever way to display all the holiday cards you receive this year? Use clips or clothespins to string them along the staircase. Or arrange them into the shape of a Christmas tree or snowflake on your wall for extra creativity points.

Gift With Greenery

Ditch the bows and top your gift with a pretty piece of greenery. Add a holly leaf, eucalyptus, pine, cedar or juniper for an elegant touch.

Easy Eucalyptus Wreaths

Eucalyptus is a great alternative for wreath making. It is easy to work with, dries out well and smells amazing! With just a few materials, you can create this elegant wreath for your home.

Washi Tape Christmas Trees and Snowflakes

Get creative and use removeable washi tape to create fun wall designs for a festive, fun feel. These would look especially great in a kid’s room!

DIY Holiday Countdown Calendar

Make your own Christmas Countdown Calendar using small envelopes to transform a large bulletin board. You can decorate each envelope and fill with treats of your choosing. With the promise of a small treasure each day, you’ll love counting down the days to December 25.
