22 Fantastic DIY Christmas Decorations Ideas and Projects

Apart from the weather this time of year which usually is wet and wind and just sad I love the time coming up to Christmas. You can feel the spirit in the air especially when all types of Christmas decorations start to pop out everywhere. 

It really is amazing. I remember when I was a little girl we had the same set of glass baubles for decorating the Christmas tree and some angel hair that was store-bought. The rest we usually were making ourselves. Color tissue/paper chains, stars, and other ornaments. 

We would wrap whole walnuts in aluminum foil and hang it with a piece of string. Or candy. Attach the string to a wrapped up candy and boom a quick DIY Christmas tree decoration. 

That was a very fun time of the year. We would make all sorts of ornaments in school and my mum would help me and my brother as well.

Making DIY Christmas decorations feels like home, I could say. That‘s why I decided to go on a hunt for handmade/DIY Christmas ornaments and decor and put them in one place for you. For your inspiration and to get your creative juices flowing.
