I can’t believe how many Christmas projects I’ve shared over the years! I went back to 2011 to find posts and some of the photos are pretty bad but I’ve shared some of those projects with you here today. So starting from 2011 to 2018, here are the majority of my Christmas decorating ideas.
My snowy centrepiece is just some buffalo snow on a silver platter with a cloche. I’ve had my collection of Eiffel towers for years. You can find them everywhere when you look for them.
Nothing is easier than a no-sew pillow, am I right?
These twine Christmas trees are fun and very inexpensive to make.
If you already have a chalkboard at home, turn it into a Holiday To Do List! It looks festive and is useful to remind you what fun things you’re planning this season.
If you have a fireplace screen, why not hook your stockings to it? Adding some small shrubs to some crocks on either side add symmetry and is a great way to bring in that fresh tree smell without getting a real Christmas tree.
This faux little tree is for my kids to decorate and I love adding it to this old galvanized tub. I put bags of rice over the stand so it doesn’t fall over and a blanket over top.
Pop in a faux mini tree to a trophy for a grand look!
If you love vintage finds as much as I do, add a sprig of garland or a bottle brush tree next to it. It will bring focus to that item and look festive.
I like simple wreaths and using jute webbing gives it that vintage feel.
Tomato cages for trees? Why not! It looks party like a Christmas tree and partly like the Eiffel Tower so I’m in love either way.
Have an old crate? Pop in some branches and evergreen to bring some fresh evergreen scent to your home.
Some thick rope, ornaments and ornament hooks and you’ve got yourself a very festive and inexpensive garland!
Have an old sweater that you don’t use anymore? Use the sleeves from it to make a wreath!
This is one of my favourite Christmas decor projects. Small clipboards, vintage postcards and fresh greenery make a lovely Christmas garland.
Making your own Christmas ornaments is very inexpensive and beautiful like these sheet music papers glued over wooden tags.
Have old plaid pyjamas? Turn the legs into a wreath!
Nothing says French Christmas than a Joyeux Noel sign for your tree!
Vintage postcards with glitter taped over your regular artwork upgrades your wall decor for Christmas.
19. Crock-Mas Tree
Have a collection of crocks like I do? Why not make a tree out of them?
Some mini wooden spools and wool make a beautiful garland for your tree.
I keep the same ornaments, trees, wreaths and garland for my Christmas decor each year. To change it up from year to year, I use different ribbon on the tree.
Have an old trunk in the basement? Paint it a glittery paint colour and add a ribbon around it to hold all your Christmas presents.
Add some fresh greenery and candles to a moose antler for a unique and inexpensive centrepiece.
I use the same basics every year for Christmas decor (tree, garland, wreaths) so adding velvet ribbon to the garland changes the whole look the next year.
Adding fresh eucalyptus and wooden beads also changes the look for another year!
Can’t find vintage looking stockings? Make your own using my sewing pattern!
Did you know that epsom salts down the middle of my table? Don’t worry, there’s a way I’ve contained it on the table so it’s not as messy as you think! Click the link above to get the directions.
Mini wreaths hanging on the backs of chairs is adorable! I made the wreaths along with the Joyeux Banners! Click above to get the directions.
Grapevine wreaths are so pretty to begin with so it doesn’t take much to add a few embellishments to make it festive.
You’ll never believe I just used hot glue to assemble these gingerbread kits together. So easy! And don’t worry, my kids had their own gingerbread house to decorate and eat.
Using plastic ornaments and plaid ribbon, these plaid ornaments are easy to make and look beautiful.
Nothing keep be cheaper than wrapping up empty boxes for a truly festive look. Add them to a dough bowl or basket for a beautiful centrepiece.
That’s a lot of projects I’ve done! There are even more that I didn’t include so be sure to check out my Christmas section for more inspiration.
