Unconventional Holiday Decor You Can DIY Today
December 11, 2020
The holiday season is here! If you’re someone who started decorating in October, you might not really need to put any finishing touches on your decor. But if you’re just getting going now, these DIY ideas will elevate your holiday decorations in a fun and modern way.
Pom-Pom Wreath [HGTV]
If the traditional evergreen-and-ribbon wreath just isn’t your style, maybe this whimsical alternative will be. It’s constructed almost entirely out of your choice of vibrant pom-poms. Pick whatever colors and patterns you like, whether they’re holiday-specific or just in keeping with your year-round style. Affix them to a flat styrofoam wreath with reindeer ornaments, jingle bells, and any other festive flourishes you can think of!
Gold Triangle Garland [Almost Makes Perfect]
For the minimalist, this simple garland will add just a touch of sparkle to your living room—but not too much. This is a great project for beginners, as it essentially consists of cutting triangles out of glimmering gold paper and arranging them along a string to create a cute garland. The shapes are vaguely holiday-tree-esque, which makes the garland fitting for this time of year.
Tabletop Holiday Trees [Sugar and Cloth]
If you haven’t decorated your full-sized tree yet, ease into the holiday season by creating a mini forest full of abstract evergreens! Order or pick up small cone-shaped wooden blocks from the craft store, and use liquid gold leaf and the craft paints of your choice to transform them into gilded holiday trees. This tutorial opts for a palette of pale green and white hues.
