1. Mason jar snow globes

Upcycle old mason jars into charming snow globes. 

Fill them with fake snow, glitter, miniature Christmas trees, and tiny figurines. Seal the lid tight and shake for a winter wonderland in a jar! 

2. Salt dough ornaments

This is a fun activity for the whole family. Mix flour, salt, and water to create a moldable dough. 

Get creative with cookie cutters, festive shapes, and even handprints. Bake and decorate your ornaments with paint, glitter, or sequins. 

3. Pinecone garland

Take a nature walk and collect pinecones. Clean and dry them, then spray paint them gold, silver, or red. 

String them on twine or ribbon, mixed with dried orange slices, cranberries, or cinnamon sticks, for a natural and fragrant garland. 

4. Yarn-wrapped ornaments

Blow up balloons of various sizes. Wrap them in colorful yarn, leaving a small hole at the top. 

Once covered, pop the balloon and carefully remove it. You’ll have fluffy, yarn-textured baubles that are perfect for hanging on the tree or around the house. 

5. Photo memory ornaments

Personalize clear glass ornaments with photos of loved ones, winter landscapes, or special Christmas memories. 

Print the photos on thin paper and cut them to size. Insert them into the ornaments, add a touch of glitter or confetti, and seal them up. 

6. Button snowflakes

Dig out your button collection! Glue buttons of different sizes and colors together onto cardboard or felt to create unique snowflake designs. 

Hang them on the tree, in windows, or use them to decorate gift wrapping. 

7. Cinnamon stick stars

Arrange cinnamon sticks into star shapes and tie them together with twine or ribbon. 

Decorate them with dried orange slices, cranberries, or mini pinecones for a festive touch. Hang them on the door, mantle them, or use them as centerpieces.

8. Scrap fabric ornaments

Don’t throw away fabric scraps! Cut them into squares or circles, glue them onto cardboard cutouts, and embellish them with buttons, beads, or paint. 

You can also sew them into little stuffed ornaments like snowmen, reindeer, or gingerbread people. 

9. Melted crayon art

This is a fun and messy activity for kids. Place old crayons on a baking sheet and melt them in the oven on low heat. 

Let them cool and peel off the wax sheets. Cut them into festive shapes like snowflakes, trees, or stars. Hang them on the tree or use them as decorative confetti. 

10. Twig snowflakes

Collect twigs and branches from your yard. Arrange them into snowflake shapes and glue them together. 

Spray paint them white or silver, or leave them natural for a rustic look. Hang them on the walls or windows, or use them as napkin rings. 


As you embark on your DIY Christmas decoration journey, remember that the true magic lies in the process of creation. 

Let your imagination soar, embrace the joy of experimentation, and cherish the moments of laughter and shared creativity with loved ones.
