Looking for some easy homemade Christmas decorations this year? I’ve compiled a list of DIY festive decorations that even a craft novice can master. Light some candles, pour yourself a festive beverage and get crafting.

Christmas Crafting

As soon as winter rolls around, the high street is suddenly filled with Christmas. Every department store bursts at the seams with assortments of sparkly tree decorations and twinkling lights. Social media becomes an endless stream of perfectly decorated homes with colour co-ordinated trees. Trying to keep up can become a bit overwhelming and pretty expensive too.

So forget the trends; stop worrying about keeping up appearances and following the latest festive fashions. Go back to basics with some (cheap), cheerful and classic homemade decorations. Not only is Christmas crafting a perfect family activity for cosy Christmas nights in, but it is also a great zero waste endeavour.

Save up last year’s wrapping paper, keep leftover paper bags and collect some winter foliage. Try your had at homemade clay decorations, orange peel stars and origami garlands among other projects.
