DIY Christmas Decorations…RYG Style!
With Thanksgiving behind us…just barely…and with you know what just a month away, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas. Which at the Scott house means pulling out all the Christmas decorations. So I thought I’d re-share 3 DIY Christmas Decoration projects. Hopefully they’ll help you bring an extra dose of Christmas cheer to your home this year.
Lighted Christmas Balls
Without a doubt, our Lighted Christmas Balls provide the greatest impact to our front yard than anything else we do. If that’s all we did (and oftentimes it is) it would be enough.
Here’s the post where you’ll find step-by-step instructions for making these Lighted Christmas Ball beauties out of chicken wire. There’s even a handy-dandy printable.
But if you don’t want to mess with chicken wire, here’s an alternative…using a folding wire ball.
Regardless of which approach you take, I’m sure you’ll be more than pleased with the final outcome.
Lighted Christmas Star (or Card Holder)
Here’s a super-easy, kid-friendly Christmas decorating project that will bring a little Christmas life outside – a Lighted Christmas Star. All you’ll need is 5 yard sticks, paint, a glue gun, and a strand of Christmas lights (and possibly an extension cord).
And if you want to display your Christmas cards in a creative way…lose the lights and bring on the twine. Scroll to the bottom of the post and you’ll find directions on how to make a Star Christmas Card Holder.
DIY Pallet Board & Red Ribbon Star
Finally…to keep the Christmas cheer rolling, try your hand at this DIY Pallet Board & Red Ribbon Star.
We made one for a DIY Christmas Gift Exchange for our Family Christmas Party several years back. And let’s just say…it was the first gift that was “frozen”.
Alright, enough talk…it’s time to get to decorating. I hope that you’ve found these DIY Christmas Decoration posts helpful and that they will help you get in the Christmas spirit.
