5 DIY Christmas decorations

Here are 5 different DIY Christmas decorations you can make at home to get everyone in the Christmas spirit! 

#1 Wooden Christmas Trees: 

For this decoration you will need: 

  • Paint brushes
  • Craft paints
  • Liquid gold leaf
  • A wooden pyramid block

You will first need to decorate your wooden block by using the paint brushes and craft paint. You can then use the liquid gold leaf at the top to create the star or a snow cap. 

These trees are easy to make and hard to break which makes them perfect decorations to be out and about during the Christmas season!

#2 Marbled Ornaments:

In order to create these marble ornaments you will need:

  • Enamel paint
  • An ornament
  • Water
  • Tablespoon
  • Paper towel
  • Wooden skewer stick

You will first need to put about a tablespoon of water into the ornament and swirl it while it’s inside the ornament. You will then need to add in the enamel paint. You can use a wooden skewer stick to swirl the paint around. After this you will need to lightly tap the ornament against your hand in a circular motion; hold the top of the ornament closed with your finger and a paper towel. 

Once the paint is looking the way you want it to, let the ornament sit for 24 hours. During the 24 hours, turn the ornament on different sides so that the paint doesn’t sit in only one area. This will get you a marble ornament!

#3 Popsicle stick snowflakes:

For this decoration you need:

  • A hot glue gun
  • Popsicle sticks 

All you need to do is come up with a design, place the popsicle sticks to mimic your design, and then hot glue the popsicle sticks together and get a nice decoration that you can hang up anywhere!

 

#4 Plastic spoon Christmas trees:

For this decoration you need:

  • Plastic spoons
  • Spray paint
  • Hot glue gun
  • Paper mache tree 

You will first need to cut the top of the plastic spoons off. Then you can spray the spoons with spray paint and give them some color. You will then need to wait for the spray paint to dry off.

After you wait for the spray paint to dry off, you will need to hot glue the bottom part of the spoon and place it on the paper mache tree. You should vary the spaces on the different layers that the spoons go and work your way up the tree. And that will get you a cool looking Christmas tree!

#5 Ornament Wreath: 

For this decoration you need:

  • Glue gun
  • Wreath frame
  • Different ornaments
  • Tinsel garland 

You will first need to wrap the wreath frame in the tinsel garland. Then you can use a glue gun to glue the bigger ornaments on the wreath, and then glue the smaller ones on to fill in space. You will then have to wait until the glue dries and then you can put your ornament wreath up for everyone to see!
