Last-Minute DIY Holiday Décor Ideas



It doesn’t seem possible that it’s already time for holiday shopping, getting out the decorations and spreading cheer through gift-giving. If the holidays managed to sneak up on you this year, then it might be time for some last-minute DIY ideas! 

Here are nine inexpensive and easy DIY ideas you can make with items already in and around your home:

For gifts:


Newspaper wrapping paper – Instead of running to the store and purchasing what can be costly holiday gift wrap, why not recycle your already-read newspapers into wrapping paper.
Paper bag or blank wrapping paper – This leaves room for creativity and is fun for kids! Use stamps, markers and crayons to create one-of-a-kind wrapping paper!
Yarn bows – Wrap gifts a few times with old yarn and tie it up with a bow. This is perfect for those gifts that come in small packages.

For the tree:


Spray painted toys – Small toys like figurines or dinosaurs make fun tree decorations. Add a coat of silver or gold spray paint and hang them on the tree for a long-lasting memory.
Cotton ball garland – All you need is thread, a needle and cotton balls. Thread the needle through cotton balls and create a snow like garland for your tree in minutes.
Pine cone ornaments – Pine cones also make great last-minute ornaments for your tree. Just like the toys, you can spray paint them to make your tree pop!

For your home:


Tin can candle holders – Another eco-friendly décor idea is using old tin cans as candle holders. Add some ribbon around the outside and simply place a real or artificial candle on the inside.
Hanging paper snowflakes – A classic activity for those of all ages is making paper snowflakes. Hang up your creations around your home and create an indoor winter wonderland.
Frosted wine bottle centerpiece – Using white spray paint you can create a frosted effect on any recycled wine bottle. Add some flowers and create a festive winter centerpiece!

As the holidays grow near, don’t fall behind on getting in the holiday spirit! These last-minute DIY holiday ideas can save you time and money this holiday season.
