Christmas is just around the corner, and it’s time to bring home a bunch of fancy Christmas ornaments. However, most of these ornaments aren’t cheap, and some even cost a fortune.
Be honest. You wouldn’t want to spend your entire month’s paycheck on a few pieces of decorative items.
So, why not make a few by yourself? Obviously, the idea may sound a bit foolish. And if you are someone busy with a 9 to 5 job, you definitely have a good reason to say, “Are you kidding me?” However, most of these DIY Christmas ornaments, in fact all of them, are easy to prepare and take not more than a few minutes. Above all, you can use them for years to come.
Below are the top 5 DIY Christmas Home Décor ideas you might want to try your hands at:
Let’s start with something that’s too easy to prepare. All you need is a candle with a slightly larger diameter, few Cinnamon Sticks and a thread to hold the sticks together. Place the candle on a saucer and wrap the sticks around it one besides the other. Finally, tie them up with the thread so that they don’t fall apart. You can try making it a bit fancier by using a ribbon instead of a thread. Once done, lit up the candle and enjoy the delightful fragrance.
Love collecting bottle caps but don’t know what to do with them? Why not create a snowman ornament for your Christmas tree? Sounds strange but is a fact. All you need are 3 bottle caps, glue, buttons, scissors and a few colors. Start by painting the inside of each cap white. Now stick the rear of the bottle caps to a ribbon one below the other. Create a loop at the top of the ribbon.
Now it’s time to paint the eyes, nose, and the mouth. Also, don’t forget to paint the buttons on the cap in the center. Use a different colored ribbon to make a scarf wrapped between the first and the second cap.
If you’ve ever opened up your computer cabinet before, you probably know what those green sticks are. All you need is a couple of old non-working RAMs, tiny Christmas tree bells and a thread. Drill a hole on both the ends of the RAM. Tie the bell at the bottom using a glossy ribbon. The ribbon should resemble a bow. Use the other hole for the thread loop.
Have a few useless CDs lying around? Let’s get a bit creative and get something out of them. You need an old Christmas glass ornament, a worn out CD, ribbon, scissors and glue. Cut the CD into some randomly shaped pieces. Stick the pieces on the ornament leaving a small space around every piece. Take a shiny gold colored ribbon and push it inside the ornament. This covers up the glue dots visible on the inside.
In case you don’t have glasses similar to the ones shown in the image above, you can use the ordinary ones too. Pour finely powdered salt in the glass until it is half filled. Insert a few twigs deep into the salt until they are standing firm. And that is it, a snowy winter. How easy was that?
These are just a few ideas good enough to save you a decent amount of time and money this Christmas. Make way for some creativity and you are sure to end up with a few more cool DIY Christmas Décor Ideas.
