It’s always nice to add a few new items to your holiday decor each year. These simple holiday DIY projects are easy to make and use items that can be found at your local hardware or craft store.
Tired of that same old holiday wreath on your front door? Check out this alternative created from a decorative ceiling medallion found at your local home improvement store. Simply spray paint it in your favorite glossy hue and suspend from a pretty ribbon.
What about an alternative to a wreath? Try personalizing your front door with a monogram letter. Embellish your initial with craft store berries, moss, or even miniature Christmas balls. Simply glue the material to the oversize letter (which can also be purchased at most local craft stores).
Looking for something unique for your holiday table? Spray paint decorative drawer pulls to create stylish napkin holders. Take a color clue from your table setting, or keep it all white for a clean look.
These snowflakes ornaments could be a fun project to try with the kids. Simply glue wooden clothespins together to form the snowflake and paint in your favorite holiday color, attaching a ribbon for hanging.
I’m of the belief that your holiday decorations should feel like a part of the room instead of a looking like a red and green explosion for the month of December. With that in mind, select holiday decor that complements the color scheme and feel of your room. Whether it’s a modern vibe in shades of aqua and green, or more traditional hues of burgundy and gold, holiday decor that blends with your existing furnishings adds depth, sophistication, and a sense of continuity to the room.
May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter, and every window open to great possibility.
