DIY Holiday Décor Ideas

With the holiday season just around the corner, it’s often nicer to focus on that exciting festive feeling than it is to stress about finals coming up even sooner. Here are some celebratory DIY decorations that you can make when you are procrastinating those long library hours, or some crafts to look forward to when you are finally home for the holiday season (if you have enough willpower to wait)!

You can easily create a festive holiday wreath with supplies from your craft store or with excess greenery from your local Christmas tree vendor! Christmas tree vendors often give away tree trimmings for free, so all you have to do is tie the greenery into a circle and hang it up in your house! You can follow these instructions if you want some helpful tips from DIY goddess Martha Stewart.

You can buy a mini fir tree from many vendors around this time of year! Wegman’s and Trader Joe’s both have a great selection. Be sure to check out your local craft stores too if you would prefer a fake tree that will last forever!

Pick up three increasingly large clay pots from your local garden center or craft store. Paint them white and add a nose, eyes, and mouth. You can overturn the pots and stack them in ascending order. Add a hat or scarf if you like and set him out as a decoration!

Remember those paper snowflakes you cut out of paper as a kid? They were fun then, but now they are the perfect window decoration to make your place festive! The best part is that all you need is paper and some scissors. Let it snow!
