Christmas Decor Ideas: DIY
With Christmas just around the corner, people are scrambling to get the best decor for their homes. Whether it may be going to the Chelsea Market and buying some cute little Christmas lights for your tree or apartment, because you want to make it really festive, it’s Christmas after all! Also if you want a place that’s on the cheaper side, try Macy’s. They have amazing prices and you can get a Kurt Adler Set of 24 Early Years Mini Ball Ornaments Cool, right? Ornaments can be used in any room and makes for a great statement. Here are some cool and fun Christmas decorating ideas.
1. Glass bowls for Christmas:
If you want to really get into the Christmas spirit, you can fill a glass bowl with a handful of ornaments, as for the colors? Stick to red and gold for that Christmas holiday look. It could be any shape or size you want. When you are done hang it from your banister or chandelier (whichever you prefer) to give it some sparkle. Teens love Christmas….well, so do the little ones as well, and I’m sure they would want some festive lights and cool ornaments in their rooms. So here’s an idea that I know they will love!
2. Personalized Christmas lights:
Grab a few of their favorite pictures or Christmas cards and put them onto some Christmas lights. Hang it on their wall. It could be in any area of the room. But I think also it just gives them some comfort in knowing that those special moments will always be there. They could be missing someone such as a family member; their dad might not come on Christmas because he is fighting in Iraq. And it helps bring back those precious memories, because you really want them to enjoy the holiday and create that Christmas atmosphere. If you want to surprise them or some of your friends, here are 5 handmade eco-friendly Christmas gift ideas.
3. Candy Glass Ornaments for Christmas:
Another fun idea for decorating your house would be to put some of your favorite candies in glass ornaments and hang them around your Christmas tree. Your kids will be eating them all morning and it’s very kid-friendly!
4. Pretty Plate Greetings:
If you want, decorate your kitchen with some fancy Christmas décor such as “pretty plate greetings” all you have to do is cut out letters from red paper or green (you want it to have that chic Christmas look) or for something a little less difficult, try stick on vinyl letters. Place the letters onto some white plates (white plates are simple and super elegant) and hang with plate hangers. Perfect for the Christmas holiday and will have your guests "ooohing" and awing at such a pretty display!

I love the idea of having candles around your home and maybe some rosary as well to give it that homey feel. You want your home to be cozy and comfortable as possible.
