We've got four fantastic DIY ideas based on your festive style of choice!
Have yourself a very Kitsch Christmas and embrace décor that's a little, perhaps sometimes a lot different! Think pastel or bright shades, and décor that resemble unicorns, fairies and maybe doughnuts... so if you prefer out of the ordinary designs, then this theme is the right one for you!
Step outside the box and create a wreath that'll have the neighbours stopping to take a look. You'll need white and bright pink pom poms, either handmade or shop-bought, glue, faux holly, a paint brush, silver or gold glitter glue, ribbon and a wreath frame. Brush the glitter glue onto your holly and leave to dry. Adhere the white and pink pom poms to the wreath frame, tie ribbons around it, then glue the faux holly leaves to your make to finish. Hang your design proudly on your front door for a stand-out effect.
Oh the weather outside is frightful, but thoughts of traditional Christmas décor are quite delightful! Ditch brightly coloured baubles with metallic tinsel and opt for natural textures, real pine trees and red and gold decorations. If this sounds right up your street, then create a list of exactly what you'd like to make to bring the spirit of the festive season into your home.
Decorate your staircase using beautiful greenery embellished with gold and red baubles for a truly stunning effect. Fresh fir garlands are ideal for this project and will leave your home smelling lovely. Source clear baubles and dip each in either red or gold-glittered paint and leave to dry. Wrap the garland with battery-operated lights, add the baubles and watch your home light up!
Deck your home in modern décor that'll ooze sophistication and style. Choose a colour scheme such as white, grey and black to guarantee that the Christmas tree gets all the attention. Add a soft, white rug for depth and warmth, and complete the luxurious scene with shades of silver and LED candles..
A three-dimensional ecru felt bauble will look lovely hung from a doorway or perched atop a tree. Felt is a favourite of ours because it's soft, natural and so easy to use. Ecru is especially lovely as it's reminiscent of a fresh blanket of snow. There are a few tutorials online to create this simple design. Once you've mastered how to make one, add metallic thread to create holiday sparkle.
For those short on time, how about a less is more approach to your festive décor? You'll still add a touch of sparkle, but it'll take half the time as it would for a traditional setting. Placing a garland with battery operated lights on your mantelpiece, and setting up a tree decorated with a few gold baubles and lights will be the perfect way to add just enough cheer.
This simple design can be done up in a few minutes. You'll need a white bauble, either shop-bought or handmade with white craft paint, gold leaf sheets, a black marker and double-sided tape. Outline a heart with a black marker, adhere double-sided tape within the outlined area, then stick on pieces of gold leaf until you're satisfied with the result. Make as many as you want and add them to your tree for a simple, yet charming look.
