RYG’s Top 5 Christmas Decorating Posts


For all of you right-after-Thanksgiving-Christmas-decorating-folks…which I am not…I thought I’d provide you with a single place to find our Top 5 Christmas Decorating Posts. So without further ado, here you go…

Chicken Wire Lighted Christmas Balls

Our lighted Christmas balls made out of chicken wire is by far the most searched for post we’ve done on Christmas decorating. So if you’re wanting to know how to make your very own, check it out. On it you’ll find detailed, printable instructions, as well as links to some of the supplies that you’ll need.How to Make Lighted Christmas Balls - Redeem Your Ground | RYGblog.com

And if you don’t want to bother with chicken wire, here’s an easier alternative I’ve found…using folding wire balls. But you’ll need to order them…and some of them are already out of stock…so you better get on it! We have both versions gracing our front yard…well, we will in about a week or so!

Pallet Board & Red Ribbon Star

You may want to keep our DIY Pallet Board & Red Ribbon Star on display year-round.Red Ribbon and Pallet Board Star - Redeem Your Ground | RYGblog.com

But if you get tired of the red ribbon, all you have to do is replace it with a different color…or even twine. Click on over and you’ll find a set of handy-dandy printable instructions.

Lighted Christmas Star (or Christmas Card Holder)

Here’s a DIY Christmas décor project that can work double-duty. Using the same general materials, you can create a lighted Christmas Star

…and then transform it into a nifty card holder by simply subbing out the lights with plane ole’ twine…or fancy silver twine like we did. Voilà!

Christmas Birdseed Ornaments

One of our girls’ favorite Christmas decorations is our Christmas birdseed ornaments. Spending the afternoon making them is a great activity to get you in the Christmas mood during school break. 

And not only do we love them…so do the birds in our backyard! Bonus!

Homemade Mulling Spices

Okay…I know this isn’t an actual Christmas decoration, but nothing gets us in the Christmas decorating spirit more than the smell of homemade mulling spices gurgling on the kitchen stove. Check out Britt’s post to find the oh-so-easy recipe and you can have the scent of Christmas wafting through your home in no time!
