One of the best parts of the holiday season is livening up your home with all kinds of festive decorations. Whether you’re putting up a simple Christmas tree or going all out to cover every square inch of your home in holiday cheer, you don’t have to break the bank to make your decorations great. 

We’ve got all the craft inspiration you need to get started on some fun DIY holiday decorations—and you can get your family in on the fun as well.

Let’s deck these halls

There are plenty of ways you can repurpose things to create fun and beautiful holiday decorations this season. Not only that, but you can get the kids in on the action with these fun holiday crafts that they’ll be sure to enjoy. 

Popsicle stick wreath: A simple and classic decoration, this wreath will be sure to bring holiday cheer to everyone who sees it, and it’s super easy to make. 

Christmas bulb advent calendar: Who doesn’t love a fun way to count down the days until Christmas? Not only will your kids be excited about opening a small gift each day, but this clever craft also serves as a decoration. 

Light-up snowmen ornaments: These little snowmen will make the perfect addition to any Christmas tree. 

Gifts from the kids

If your children want to get in on the fun of holiday gifting but aren’t quite old enough to buy presents, you can encourage them to craft their own. The best part: All of these ideas can double as cute holiday decorations for your home. 

DIY snow globes: These mason jar snow globes are low mess and low stress but promise to be a ton of fun for your little ones. 

Chalkboard frames: Thrift an old photo frame or find an extra around the house, hit it with a bit of chalkboard paint, and you’ll have a cute photo frame that your kids can decorate however they’d like. 

Decorative mug: You can buy a few paint pens and blank mugs and let your kids unleash their design creativity. Fill up these mugs with chocolate or other small treats as an additional gift.

No matter where your creativity takes you this holiday season, there’s no end to the fun ways you can spend time with your family while also getting your home in the festive spirit. We hope you’re able to turn these crafts into a fun holiday memory with your loved ones this season.
