The holiday season is in full swing, and you want your house to look the part. Instead of loading up on expensive decorations this year, you can make them yourself. These simple DIY holiday crafts are fun to make and will put you in the holiday spirit.
1. Corn Wreath
You can show off fall’s colors with this corn wreath craft. Instead of using real corn, you’ll make the wreath with construction paper, bubble wrap, and twine. The bubble wrap will resemble kernels of corn when you’re done, so it’ll look just like the real deal. However, you won’t have to worry about it spoiling.
2. Felt and Burlap Napkin Rings
You can add some holiday cheer to your table with these felt and burlap napkin rings. You’ll use a pattern to cut out leaves for the napkin rings. Then, you’ll just follow a couple more steps to assemble them. It won’t be long before they’re ready for your table.
3. Yarn Pumpkins
Your kids will be amazed at the process when you make yarn pumpkins. Actually, it’s so cool that you might feel a rush of wonder as well. You’ll start with a balloon, cover it in yarn, and let the glue dry. Then, you’ll remove the balloon, leaving you with a yarn pumpkin. The yarn will stay in place, so you can display the pumpkin on a table or the mantel. Don’t be surprised if guests ask how you managed to get the yarn to stay in place. It looks like magic, but in reality, it just takes a little bit of work.
4. Ombre Pinecone
Pinecones are popular decorations this time of year. You can use them for various crafts, but this ombre pinecone project might take the cake. You’ll paint the tips of the pinecones, while the rest will remain the natural color. The painted tips stand out against the brown color and make the finished product look like a trinket instead of a pinecone. In fact, the results are so outstanding that you might want to paint several pinecones. You can use a variety of colors, so each one is unique.
