Holiday DIY Crafts to Add That Personal Touch to Your Decor
So shiny, bright and festive, these sparkling beauties will likely be displayed year after year to create a Christmas from the heart.
Vintage Ornament Trees
Cover plastic foam cones (try 10-, 12- and 15-inch cones) with ornaments, attaching them with hot glue. Start with larger ornaments at the bottom, transitioning to smaller ones as you work your way up. Fill in any gaps with mini ornament balls. Decorate the finished trees with vintage tinsel, ribbons or beaded garland.
Hot-glue ornaments in assorted sizes to silver or glass candlesticks. Fill in any gaps with mini ornament balls.
Chinoiserie Plate Wreath
This is a great project for displaying random mismatched small plates, butter plates, tea cups and shallow bowls without damaging them. You can hang these wreaths on doors, cabinets, walls or place them on bookcases—anywhere that doesn’t get a lot of movement, to avoid possible breakage. The wreath can get heavy, so keep this in mind as you create your design.
