Pretty Christmas Decor and Ornaments You Can Make Yourself
It wouldn’t be the holidays without the decorations. There are so many routes you can go, but we think the best way is to DIY them with the fam. This is the perfect activity to tackle with the kids and grandparents when you have some downtime before the holidays hit. A little post-Thanksgiving craft session, anyone? We picked out our favorites on Pinterest (head there for more inspiration).
DIY Mason-Jar Snow Globe
We’ll never turn down a mini pom-pom. Can we make these for all life events?
File this under “messy but worth it.” Especially if you have an all-white tree.
The perfect accent for your tree: fuzzy, multicolored studs.
Keep your little artists busy by having them paint deer and owls onto glass ball ornaments. (You know they love that Snapchat filter.)
Mason-Jar-Lid Wreath Ornaments
Turn your old canning jar lids into festive little wreaths. Perfect for hanging on the tree and around the house.
Snowy Mason Jar
This wintry votive candle holder is made simply with salt and decoupage glue.
Lightbulb Snow Globe
Not ready to spend your holiday budget on intricate glass figurines? This lightbulb version is a cheaper and—in our opinion—cuter alternative.
All you need is a bottle of school glue, Popsicle sticks, twine and paint to assemble the world’s more adorable sleds.
Etched Birch Ornaments
These hearty disks will last for years.
