15 Crafty Christmas Decoration DIYs

Hey, folks! We may be knee-deep in the holidays already, but that doesn't mean there isn't time left to decorate before the seasonal celebrations begin! Today I'd like to share a roundup of some wonderful do-it-yourself decor tutorials to help you deck your halls, walls, mantel, or tree! Be sure to click each image for its tutorial and take some time to say thanks to the awesome bloggers who wrote them!

This gorgeous glittery decor DIY from Tatertots & Jello beautifully combines several of my favorite holiday decorating elements into a single understated vignette. It's perfect!


If you're looking for a creative way to display your holiday cards, check out this string art Christmas tree design from My Poppet! Once your cards are hung, decorate the tree any way you'd like!


This pine cone garland from The Sweetest Occasion is just beautiful, but I'd love to accentuate the flecks of gold leaf on the pine cones by wrapping them around a lighted Christmas tree and watching them twinkle!


It may already be December, but if you were to make this DIY advent calendar, you could still count down the 12 days of Christmas and save the rest for next year! Plus, this colorful forest of trees is a neat little collection of free printables at Love From Ginger!


I love how a simple piece of scrap wood can be transformed into practically anything, like these adorable DIY reindeer, complete with little branch antlers and drawer knob noses from The 36th Avenue!


These giant gold snowflakes, created from Popsicle sticks by Chelsea of Making Home Base, look super easy to make and would be a fun project for kids, too!


For another cute wall decor DIY, check out this geometric Christmas tree wall hanging, created from paint chips, or any other colored paper you may have on hand! This is a great Christmas tree alternative for small spaces, seen on The Red Thread Blog!


Speaking of alternative trees, this tiny branch in a cute little ornament vase from Gimme Some Oven would be an adorable addition to a bedroom or small apartment during the holidays!


Consider this tutorial from Nest of Posies to add a little holiday cheer to a plain old hallway, or just to make Christmas morning a little more special! Using only some icicle lights and 15 minutes of your time, your kids will definitely thank you!


If you're still looking for the perfect way to add a little sparkle to your Christmas tree, check out these gorgeous glittery galaxy ornaments from The Swell Designer!


I love this creative take on a classic winter craft! This layered paper snow globe by Helen Frances is so incredibly pretty, I can't help but want to make one of my own!


If snow globes aren't quite your thing, or if you tend to make more of a mess than anything else when you try to make one yourself, then you'll love these snow globe-inspired terrariums, a great way to display a cute winter scene on a mantel, from Pink Pistachio!


For another wonderful way to show off your holiday cards, check out this rustic chicken-wire card display tutorial from Lolly Jane! This would also be great for showcasing family photos from holidays past!


If you keep a veggie garden in the warmer months and have an old tomato cage lying around, wrap strings of lights around it to create an upcycled Christmas tree alternative!


This holly-adorned accent wall is just plain gorgeous!, and probably fairly easy so long as you follow the free templates and tutorial over on Snow & Graham!
