Learn how to make homemade Christmas decorations with these 50+ ideas! These unique projects work for all skill levels and decor styles.
It’s almost December my friends, and you know what that means. That means if you’ve been playing around and not getting out your Christmas decor, it’s time.
I don’t know what you decorate, but I like to do the front entryway, walls, front door, mantel . . . and some of the bookcases. I know that sounds like a lot, but the Christmas crafts are kind of commingled amongst all the regular home decor.
I’m not one of those people who packs all the daily stuff away. Are you one of those people? I guess it depends on how much decorating you do.
The thing is, I really do love making homemade Christmas decorations, so I add new things every year. So what I’m saying is that eventually my space is going to be overwhelmed. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it!
Why think about it today when we can think about it next Christmas? Scarlett O’Hara was a dang genius.
Anyhoo, I’m really excited to share some of my favorite handmade holiday decor picks for the year. This year I’ve gone with a gold and white fur theme in the front entryway, but that isn’t consistent around my home.
SO you’re going to get ideas for a lot of themes – farmhouse, modern, vintage, etc. – as well as for a variety of skill levels. I’ll be honest though, these projects aren’t hard. Just take your time and let me know if you have any questions.
Happy holidays and happy crafting!
