Christmas DIY

It’s almost Christmas!!!! Now that it is after Remembrance Day, I feel I am officially allowed to start decorating for Christmas. One thing I have really started to get into is DIY projects, and I felt that the holiday season might be a great time to crank out a few new DIY decorations! I’ve got one project already done and under my belt, you can see it over here. I’ve been searching Pinterest for inspiration and came across a few ideas that I am particularly excited about trying. Here is a small sampling of some of them!

DIY Paint Chip Garland

I found this cute garland idea on Country Woman Magazine’s website. It’s such a fun little way to use up paint chips that you might have lying around from a previous craft or project. The website provides the pattern needed for the light bulbs, making this garland even easier! I imagine that this idea would translate well to Easter as well, by cutting out egg patterns out of the paint chips. Really the possibilities are endless!

I found this idea on the HGTV website. In my tiny little apartment, I don’t have a nice fireplace mantel to hang my stockings on, but this project gives me a great alternative! It’s very easy, I see shelves like this all the time and I am surprised I never thought of this myself! it would be very easy to dress it up with some evergreen branches and Christmas ornaments. Or, I have been searching for a place to set up my Christmas village, which is out of my cat’s reach, and this might be a great place for that as well!

I found this idea on Popsugar.com. These ornaments are so cute! I think that they would make a great tradition for a couple, or family who like to travel together. They could make a new one every year for where they went! I think I might do this very idea with my future husband, as I love to take road trips all over Canada. It would be nice to have a special little reminder of all the places we have been to look at every year on our Christmas tree!

I found this idea woohome.com. This is such a neat idea using something that everyone already has in their homes and usually just ends up in the recycle! I usually just give them to my cat to play with for a bit, but now I can get creative. You could make all kinds of different designs using this idea, so let your imagination run wild!

I found this idea on the HGTV website as well. I love advent calenders, putting the little Santa into his next pocket each day in December was one of my favourite memories leading up to Christmas when I was younger. This is a great DIY idea for making my own! You can get mittens at the dollar store, making this a super easy and inexpensive idea. If you would like to check it out for yourself, please click here.
