DIY Christmas Trends and Decor

Dust off those stockings and reindeer, because Christmas is right around the corner! Here are some easy, but festive DIY tricks that will transform your home into a Christmas Wonderland.

Cotton Trees and Jackalopes

This may seem like an unlikely pair, but both cotton trees and jackalopes are one of the hottest trends this Christmas. Fill your home with these magical creatures that are part jackrabbit and antelope, and are sure to spread some of that holiday spirit. Also, cotton trees may be a new take on the traditional pine, but we can't help but love the way the neutral colours compliment the greenery.

Let the Countdown begin!

Start off the Christmas season with these fun and interactive advent calendars made from simple craft supplies. Not to mention, this is a great activity to do with the kids. All you need are mini buckets or boxes from your local craft store, and the rest is up to your imagination. You can decorate them with ribbon and bells, or for a more polished look try sticking to a colour scheme such as the traditional Christmas colours or a twist of silver and gold, with a touch of blue.

Cheery Christmas Centrepieces

This Christmas season mix it up with fruit centrepieces combined with rosemary or thyme. Add walnuts or any type of sliced fruit surrounded with layers of cranberries, to a vase with a candle. Or for a more unique display, try floating these items in a mason jar filled with water, and complete the look with some festive garland and trees. It is the perfect decoration to add a pop of colour to your dining area and fill your home with an exotic aroma! Click the video down below for a tutorial on how to make both of these Christmas centrepieces.

Please, Have a Seat...

Leave your guests awestruck with these beautiful table settings. Give your dining room a cozy by-the-fireplace look, with plaid and tartan designs used on either table runners or blankets. If that's not your style, try something a bit more simple and elegant, like a White Christmas theme of white accented with gold place settings, complete with charming gingerbread figures. This year, it's out with the old colour scheme, with a blend of a variety of more untraditional hues like lime green and purple to add a burst of colour to your table.

Homemade Ornaments

Who doesn't love homemade ornaments? It's great way to add a personal touch to your tree and it's a fun craft to do with the entire family. These are super easy to make since all you need are blank ornaments and a few kick knacks. Some cool ideas that are trending this Christmas are scrabble letters, and edible ornaments that go perfectly with a cup of hot chocolate.
