3 DIY Christmas Decorations

The most cheerful time of year is on its way, so it’s time to get decorative and festive! Whether you’re brainstorming gifts or ways to get in the spirit, there’s something about Christmas that makes us all want to get extra creative. Explore three of our favorite easy and affordable merry-making ideas for how to DIY decking the halls. 


#1 Christmas Tree Alternative


No tree, no problem! If you’re small on space or have overly curious pets, go faux but festive with this creative take on the Christmas tree. Head to your local craft store to find rustic, wooden dowels or look no further than your front lawn for dried branches that deserve a second chance. Twist these up in twine, and organize from longest to shortest, to create a signature triangle tree silhouette featuring festive characters. The biggest perk to this playful Christmas alternative is there’s less mess and more room for Christmas ornaments galore. Decorate your home and display your favorite pieces with ease, from personalized keepsakes to annual ornaments that everyone adores. 


#2 Set Out A Seasonal Spread 

Here’s a tradition you can start today: build your own charcuterie board! Grab a tasteful tray and pile on everyone’s favorite snacks and sweets to make an instant holiday spread. Our Holiday mini luna 8-piece nesting dinnerware set has an assortment of plates and bowls to fill with anything your heart desires—plus it looks pretty surrounding your centerpiece. Coordinate with the Holiday 6-piece party plate set and your presentation is perfect! Since nothing gathers a crowd quite like great food this might just become your go-to trick for feeding your whole Christmas crew. 


#3 Wrapped With Meaning & Care 

Add some character and homespun charm to gifts—and add an eco-friendly element to your holiday—by recycling newspaper pages as wrapping paper. (It’s like giving the Earth a it’ll save you a few dollars, too!) Then, garnish your gifts with an extra sprinkle of holiday cheer, and by that we mean top them all off with ornaments they’ll cherish forever. We recommend our snowflake ornament set for a winter wonderland aesthetic and to give your gifts a consistent look under your tree.
