6 Christmas decorating projects that you can make to add a festive holiday vibe to your home. 

Instead of making a new project to share with you today, I thought I would show you my favorite holiday decorations that I have used in past years and that made the cut this year.

No. 1: DIY Ornament Bowl

How to display Christmas ornaments

I made this Trash to Treasure Ornament Bowl the first year I started blogging. I used two unmatched  pieces I found at the thrift store.  I have used it in my foyer every Christmas since making it.

No. 2: Knitting Needle Ornament Tree

Christmas Decorating with Ornaments

This Tabletop Knitting Needle Tree is taken apart to be stored each year since all that is holding it up is a knitting needle.  It is super easy to make.

No. 3: Memory Ornaments


I like to hang souvenirs and keepsakes on my tree.  I call them memory ornaments.  I have shared more in my post, Memory Ornaments.  This key to my childhood home is my favorite.

No. 4: Porch Light Decoration

Christmas-Outdoor-Decorating Ideas for light fixtures

I used real greens to make these outdoor Hook-On Greenery for Outdoor Light Fixtures decorations , but this year I am going to make them with artificial greens so I can reuse them each year.  Wait until you see how easy it is to make and hang them.

No. 5: Christmas Tree Stand Cover


I made this Photo Frame Tree Stand Cover last year. I used it around the artificial tree in my dining room. This year I am going to use it around the real tree for the family room.

No. 6: Paper Wreath


I love preserved boxwood wreaths, but they are pricey. Last year I decided to make my own using paper – Paper Boxwood Wreath. I included a free printable of the leaves in my post.  It is fast and easy to make if you have a digital cutting machine.

I will be making a few more decorations this year and will be showing them over the next 6 weeks.

Have you started thinking about how you are going to decorate this year?
