The holidays are finally here. It’s time to get started by putting up seasonal decorations to make your home shine this December. If you are like us, decorating for the holidays takes on a special meaning when decorations are handmade. That is why we’ve put together some fun DIY holiday decorating ideas sure to add some extra cheer to the season.
DIY Candy Cane Door Décor
When we think about the holidays, peppermint always comes to mind. That is why we love these candy cane door décor ideas from Country Living. Welcome guests with this delightfully delicious pop of red and white that can be molded into numerous patterns and forms as unique as you are. All you will need are candy canes, a glue gun, a wreath mold, and some festive ribbon or greenery as needed. This is a fun DIY project for the whole family.
Dried Citrus is a Delight
Oranges, cranberries and lemons are so much more than fruit. When dried, these citrusy treats offer a warm and inviting scent to every home. Consider integrating dried citrus into your holiday decorations. There are so many options available like this fun citrus garland from Good Housekeeping. You can also line candle jars with dried citrus. What an easy way to fill your home with scents of the holidays.
Green Up Your Mantel
Dress up your mantel and entryways with fresh greenery. Spruce, juniper, cedar, boxwood and holly are easy to find in Virginia and North Carolina and make the perfect blend to create vibrant garlands. You will need pruning snips, twine and a little bit of time to create the perfect garland arrangement, but the results are well worth it.
Cookie Cutter Ornaments
Admit it. You probably have more holiday cookie cutters than you really need. Why not turn them into beautiful ornaments? BluKat Design has some festive ideas on ways to turn those old cookie cutters into pieces of art. This is another DIY project that the whole family can enjoy, and you will cherish these ornaments for years to come.
At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters and hope that these DIY holiday decorating ideas inspire you as you begin to decorate for the season.
