Our Favorite Holiday DIY Decor Ideas

One of the best parts of the holiday season is seeing how all of our clients decorate their homes. It really gets us in the holiday spirit and inspires us to deck the halls at our own house. Suddenly we find ourselves scouring Pinterest for holiday decorating projects that anyone can master.

That’s how we discovered the holiday DIY decor ideas below. They’ll not only make your spaces more festive, they can also highlight features that help sell your home.

Holiday Card Tree

A holiday card tree is a classic that never goes out of style and gives you a way to show off all of the beautiful cards from friends and family.

Wooden Christmas Tree Forest

This DIY Christmas tree forest project is unbelievably cute and perfect for families with children.

Illuminated Stocking Hanger

Add a little extra glow around the fireplace with an illuminated stocking hanger that looks store-bought but is actually very easy to make.

Vintage Christmas Light Wreath

When you make the switch to energy-efficient LED lights, you may wonder what to do with your old strings of vintage bulbs. Repurpose them into a cool vintage Christmas light wreath instead of tossing them in the trash.

Mason Jar Snow Globes and Christmas Trees

We love rustic mason jar decor in Texas. Give it a Christmas twist by creating a mason jar snow globe or mini Christmas tree.

Wood Pallet Christmas Tree

DIY pallet projects are still insanely popular. If you don’t have power tools handy, you can also just paint the tree on instead of cutting it out!

Overhead Table Decor

Add unexpected flair to your holiday dinner party by including decor overhead. All you need is a tree branch, some ornaments, fishing line and a few ceiling hooks.

DIY Glass Ornaments

Let your inner artist shine with glass ornaments you decorate yourself. It will add a personal touch to your tree year after year.

Wrapping Paper Frame Ornaments

We’re all for repurposing and upcycling all of that leftover wrapping paper that builds up every Christmas. Instead of recycling it you can create ornaments for next year using some ribbon and small picture frames or mason jar lids.

Illuminated Sphere Topiary

This illuminated grapevine sphere is a beautiful decoration that can be used indoors or outdoors.

Chalkboard Canvas Fireplace

A fireplace is a real focal point, but today less than half of new homes have them. But that doesn’t mean you’ll have no place to hang the stockings. You can DIY a cute fireplace using a white canvas, chalkboard paint and some basic hardware.

Simple Wreath

Minimalism more your style? Using a simple craft ring and a few boughs of a fir or pine, you can create a simple yet festive wreath to hang in your home. Place some dried fruit slices or cotton on it for a more rustic look, or even spruce it up with some alternate greens like eucalyptus.

Ceiling Medallion Door Wreath

The entry is one of the most important parts of a home. You want it to look inviting and show off a little style. You can do both during the holidays with a ceiling medallion door wreath. Pick up a circular ceiling medallion and metallic green spray paint at a home goods store to make a beautiful wreath in an hour or two.

Candy Cane Throw Pillow

Throw pillows are a quick and easy accent that can add character to the living room. Instead of paying for holiday-themed pillows you can make your own with a few white pillows, red ribbon and fabric glue.

Molding Garland

If you are remodeling you can repurpose your old molding into a garland display by tacking the garland into the molding.

Mitten Advent Calendar

Advent calendars are a fun way to count down to Christmas, and they can also double as cute decor. This mitten advent calendar is one of our favorites.

Musical Christmas Trees
