Homemade Christmas Decorations Ideas

Create decorations with what you have in the kitchen or in your backyard.

Here are the ones I made this year…

Scented decoration : oranges with cloves. Looks vibrant and smells fantastic. Cut zest of the orange and make a pattern. Pin in cloves. Display as you like. The smaller the room, the more the smell is present.

Decorated candles : decorate with cinnamon sticks and tread. Make or buy a candle, display cinnamon sticks around it and make hold with a tread/rope. If you have ribbons, you can use them instead of the rope.

Center piece : water stems (rosemary, pine, holly). Pick stems from my backyard and add them to water and fresh cranberries. It makes a clean and trendy decoration!

Atmosphere Lighting : mason jar tealight covered fabric. Use an old bed sheet cut out the size I need to cover the jar. I use a rope to finish it and to make the fabric hold. I glue pieces of tree bark pre cut in christmassy shapes. The second one is covered with an old see through shiny fabric I found in my scrap box.

Wish cards holder : rope and small clothespins. I made braided rope with a coton rope that was left from last year. Made it stick on the wall with gum and added small Christmas clothespins bought many year ago.

Have fun!

In health,
