Searching online and in your local area for inspiration are a great way of coming up with some cheap DIY decor Christmas ideas. There is so much choice for Christmas this year it’s great fun coming up with something original, and I’ve included a few ideas below for your inspiration.
A very cheap and simple way of updating your current DIY Christmas decoration ideas would be to buy old Christmas cards that have festive designs and then re-use the front flap and glue to create something brand new. You could either make a cover for them or just leave them in their folded state. Another great idea is to buy a load of wool threads and make a scarf using them. This is especially good if you have a cute baby Christmas jumper that you don’t want to let go of! Wrap it round the entire tree, adding fancy ribbon to tie around the base of the tree for added effect, if you’re feeling extra creative then tie one end to the baby’s foot or use a charm, brooch or nail file to turn the wool into a beautiful scarf.
Christmas is all about imagination, so why not try making or buying some unusual or unique items to add to your home. Why not buy or make an ornamental birdhouse to display at home? Or maybe you could purchase a ‘belly’ for your Christmas turkey, perhaps decorated with shiny balls and ribbons. What child doesn’t love a teddy bear that is suspended from the ceiling or a star made out of household items. If you’re creative and imaginative, you will come up with lots of other ideas and maybe even find that you have some DIY decor ideas of your own.
