Contrary to popular belief, there’s no need to spend lots of money, time, or energy decking your halls. In fact, that’s precisely the thought behind the DIY Christmas decorations we’re sharing with you here. These thoughtful holiday projects are impossibly easy and time-saving—so time-saving, in fact, that you’ll have enough time left over to plan a Christmas party or two! What’s more, they’re affordable, leaving you a little extra dough to shell out on Christmas presents for mom, nifty gifts for your best friend, and stocking stuffers for the little ones. From DIY ornaments to simple centerpieces and even showstopping holiday wreaths, there’s something here for just about everyone. Handmade sweater stockings, a DIY advent calendar made of galvanized pails, and boxwood chair markers are just a few of the inspired ideas you’ll find on our list. And we’re not asking you to relegate your creativity to the inside of your house either. We’ve also made sure to include a few DIY outdoor Christmas decorations that’ll have your front porch looking ready for the holiday season in no time. A shiny Brite wreath gives your door a vintage-inspired feel, while “snow-covered” pine cones work beautifully in your family room or on your front porch. Let’s get crafting!
