Just as I mentioned in my my Dollar tree Fall craft and decor ideas I posted back in August, “don’t shoot the messenger”. Little did I know it would be so warmly received, and yet so early on. So I figured I would piggy back off that, and share my Dollar tree Christmas craft and decor ideas round up with you. Obviously, budget friendly craft ideas seem to be pretty popular. At this point in my life, I pride myself on them. I enjoy taking something basic and creating some seasonal fun with it. All the links highlighted will take you to the actual project and/or free printable.
Inside the house, Christmas trees are key. Whether you prefer a fresh-cut tree or an easy-to-assemble artificial tree, The Home Depot is sure to have one that suits your style and fits your space. We offer a wide range of unlit and pre-lit Christmas trees, available in sizes from tabletop all the way up to two stories. Trim your tree with Christmas ornaments, lights, ribbons and tree skirts.
Not all Christmas door decorations have to be bright and sparkly. This gorgeous design idea is completely inspired by the beauty of nature. It’s a perfect opportunity to embark on a fun Christmas craft project with some found objects from nature. Add real pine-cones, leaves and crabapples to a wreath using a hot glue gun. These natural items accentuate a wreath or a garland beautifully. If your favorite part of the Christmas season is exploring the beauty and splendor of a forrest before the snow has really begun to fall, this is without a doubt one of the absolute best homemade Christmas decorations you could make.
The Christmas tree, while a spectacle in itself, is just the start. Use stockings, wreaths, and garland (along with other festive finds!) to fill the inside and outside of your home with holiday cheer. Along the way, you may even get the opportunity to revisit your favorite decorations of Christmas' past like Grandma's vintage Santa figurines or the glittering tinsel trees you grew up with. The end result? These jolly decorating ideas will make every inch of your home will look and feel as festive as Whoville. And don't forget to pick up a copy of our Christmas Spectacular issue, bursting with festive decorating ideas.
While silly, modern and cool Christmas decorations are all well and good, some of us want to eschew anything cartoonish or childish, preferring the look of old-fashioned, Victorian era Christmas house decorations. Skip that usual wreath and instead go with an oversize garland, stringing it around the top half of the perimeter of your door. Avoid tinsel or brightly colored decorations, instead opting for ribbons, bulbs and stars in romantic colors like burgundy and gold. The finished look is utterly classical and timeless, perfect for those who prefer their holiday decorations to be on the sophisticated side.
