DIY Ornament Pillows
Oh my goodness how gorgeous are these ornament pillows?? They look like something you’d spend a lot of money on at the store, so no one will believe you made them yourself! You don’t need to be a sewing wizz either, although you will need access to a sewing machine and a glue gun. The project takes 2-3 hours so it’s perfect for a Sunday afternoon! (via Studio DIY)
DIY Ruffled Tree Skirt
If you need a new skirt for your tree this year take a look at this amazing ruffled one! This is a no-sew project but you will need a glue gun as well as some time and patience since it took Randa about six hours to put it together. It looks fabulous though and works out a lot less cheaper than buying something similar from the store. (via The Bewitchin’ Kitchen!)
DIY Snow Globe Necklace
How about a Christmas decoration that you can wear around your neck, or hang from your tree, or gift as a stocking stuffer? This miniature snow globe necklace is adorable and super easy to make as long as you have some wire cutters and a hot glue gun! (via The 36th Avenue)

If you dream of a white Christmas this simple wreath is the perfect DIY project for you! I love the plaid fabric and those little wooden slices! And of course those snowy Christmas tree! What a wonderful way to welcome your guests for the Holidays! (via The Happy Housie)
DIY Custom Vintage Christmas Lights
I love the look of these “vintage” Christmas lights – and that you can choose any colours you like to match your Christmas decor! Of course they don’t actually light up but they’re so brightly coloured anyway that doesn’t matter! (via Sister’s Suitcase)
French Macaron Ornaments
It’s time to start saving bottle caps so that you can make some of these gorgeous French Macaron ornaments for your tree! Ooh they’d make a great centerpiece for the dessert table too, as long as people know they can’t actually eat them! Just make sure you pick up the large glitter to make them truly sparkle! (via I Am A Homemaker)

How to Make Christmas Light Balls
How amazing do these huge light balls look? I thought they’d be really tricky to make but nope, you just need some chicken wire, wire cutters and some LED mini lights and quite a bit of patience. But totally worth the effort don’t you think? (via Christmas Lights Etc)
Mini House Wreath Tutorial
I am totally in love with this wreath, it’s so snowy and those mini houses give it an almost magical vibe! Other than your trusty glue gun you don’t need any special equipment to make these, and Delia has all the templates you need to cut out those houses from cardstock. I’d be tempted to add a string of battery operated LED lights to make it twinkle after dark! (via Delia Creates)
Make a Jingle Bell Tree
Next time you see giant jingle bells on offer (or at the Dollar Tree) snap up a few packets so you can make one of these fabulous cone trees! It doesn’t matter what colour they are because you can spray paint them to be whatever colour you want to match your decor. (via Jennifer Rizzo)

Love this idea of decorating those wooden letters you can pick up at the craft store. You could make any word you like that sums up the Holiday season for you! (via Grit Antiques)

Oh isn’t he just the most adorable little snowman you’ve ever seen! He’d look cute on your mantel, or would make a great gift for a little one. No special tools needed other than your glue gun, but you will need some old sweater sleeves so raid your closet or head out to goodwill to see what you can find! (via DIY Beautify)
Minimalist Christmas Tree
If you don’t have room for a Christmas tree why not have a go at drawing one like this? If you planned it out you might even be able to get 24 stars on there and use it as an advent calendar too! (via Lana Red Studio)
Make a Sugar String Snowman Holiday Decoration
Here’s another fabulous snowman that won’t melt when the sun comes out! He’s made from sugar water and is a really fun project to do with the kiddos! (via Kids Activities)
Do you Want to Build a Snowman?
