The Christmas spirit is gaining pace since the holiday month arrived. No matter what part of America you live in, you must be engrossed with joy. That’s the beauty of Christmas. Cities make effort to look bright and shiny. It’s hard to avoid enthusiasm even if you try.
You can begin cleaning your house if you haven’t started yet. If you don’t have much time, you can hire people to do the job like closet cleaners or air duct cleaners. These services allow you to deep clean the house before you get on with decorations.
Amidst all this green and red decoration all around, you can’t let your own house look dull. If you live in a suburban area, houses line up with brilliant decorations to match people’s enthusiasm. This is a great time to unlock your creativity and make your house look the best. A little competition never hurt anybody.
DIY home décor ideas for Christmas
- Edible snow globes: Nothing makes up for a better décor than one that you can eat. They look great and taste wonderful. Whip up these globes in the form of a cake or baked cookies. You can make edible trees too to create a winter wonderland or build Santa’s home with red velvet. Cakes make up the perfect igloos. Bake a normal, mini, 8-inch cake and cover it with coconut flakes that look like snow, then use snowman-shaped cookies and cover them in whipped cream. Decorate your kitchen to enjoy cooking even more.
- Punny ornaments: You can have a Christmas tree with the ornaments. They are hung above doors and on the stairs to create the epic ‘Home-Alone’ vibes. You might as well make them creative. Buy ornaments that have calligraphy over them with puns in spite of Christmas wishes. Puns like, ‘happy holla-days’, yank out good laughter from your family and guests. These also get people to be in the moment when they pay attention to detailed decorations despite their phones.
- Gingerbreak houses: You’re going to receive many gifts that come wrapped in pretty boxes. Moreover, you always have Amazon boxes lying in the attic to be used in some DIY projects. This is the time to bring them out. Create beautiful gingerbread houses with these boxes that resemble a street in a snow-covered street in Finland. You can make snow with cotton. Your guests will click a lot of pictures for their social media with #christmasspirit.
- Tree Cake: Cutting down trees to decorate for Christmas is considered destructive to the environment. While it’s completely your choice to have a tree or not, here’s a cute and yummy alternative to a traditional tree. Make a Christmas cake that looks like a tree. It might seem difficult but it really isn’t. You can decorate with sprinkles, strawberry KitKat, cherries, and edible ornaments. Everyone will love it as they eat it.
- Snowflake lights: This is not 100% DIY but you get to decorate it however you like. So, we’re halfway there. Buy snowflake lights from Amazon and cover your roof, ceiling, fans, or stairs with them. They work especially well in the ceiling as they create an effect of falling snow. The whole house covered in these lights looks majestic.
- Drinks and decorations: There can’t be a Christmas dinner without a little booze. It’s snowing outside and the drinks help you stay warm. But they can also be made funky. Combine drinks of various colours to create colourful cocktails that will get everybody on their feet. If you have a mini-bar, you can jazz it up with some Christmas lights and punny ornaments that you created earlier. The party will be thrilling.
- Disco ball tree: Trees are the chief decorative pieces. Love them or hate them, you need them in your house. It’s hard to get hands on them as there’s a shortage this season. Here’s another idea. A disco ball tree is made up of disco balls of all sizes glued together in the shape of a tree. Get pseudo disco balls from Amazon. They’re plastic and don’t cost much. The number of balls depends on the size of the tree you want. You can keep it small and chill or go where your imagination takes you. The result will be better than the real tree.
DIY projects always take the cake when it comes to enhancing uniqueness. It also allows you to gather the whole family to create something together. Festivals are meant to bring people together and DIY decorations provide a great way to do that.
All of these will be really fun to make. You can include your family and friends and have a blast with the creation itself. People appreciate decorations more when they’ve played a part in doing them. You can make this a Christmas tradition if you’d like.
