It’s a time when people give and receive presents, and well, don’t forget the holidays and the bonuses too! It’s when families, friends and relatives gather around for dinner and excitedly open up their gifts under the Christmas tree! And what would be the best way to experience Christmas spirit but to fill our houses with decorations right?
You can go all-out with your Christmas decorations without your budget getting in the way. Here are four Christmas Do-it-Yourself ideas you can apply to your home.
1. Mesh Ribbon Christmas Tree
Christmas isn’t complete without putting up a Christmas tree! But buying one can really be costly. The mesh ribbon Christmas tree makes a great and adorable Christmas DIY centerpiece in your home. You will only need 3 things to create this Christmas tree. First, you will need a mesh ribbon; I’d highly recommend the green one to resemble the Christmas tree leaves. Next you will need the foam piece for the core of the tree. And lastly, you will need the greening pins. Simply unroll the mesh ribbon one roll at a time and then twist them. Once twisted (it will look like a ringlet), pin it with the greening pin until you work your way to the top of the foam piece. Be sure to start with a wider arrangement in the bottom until you get narrower as you reach the top. You can then top this Christmas tree with balls and voila! You now have your cute Christmas tree!
2. Yarn Ball Wreath
Don’t end your Christmas holiday without adorning your house door with a Christmas wreath. The yarn ball wreath may come as a big test at the start but the result will ultimately be mind-blowing. So first, you will need yarn in different colors depending on what you want, some cheap ornaments, a wreath form, burlap for wrapping, and hot glue. First, wrap up your wreath for (foam) with burlap using your glue. Then secure your ornament balls with yarn still using the glue.do this to a lot of balls with various colors and sizes. Then assemble the balls in your wreath form. That’s it! A great Christmas DIY for a budget-friendly Christmas wreath.

Even if you’re not an expert in sewing, this Christmas DIY stockings will surely be a fun way to start with your Christmas decorations. So start by printing the stocking pattern (there are templates available for download in the internet or you can also design one of your own). Choose any fabric design you like. You will need 11″ x 14″ piece for front and back lining pieces and an 11″ x 14″ piece of fabric for front and back outside pieces. Then cut the stocking shapes by matching wrong sides together. Now pair them up and sew them together. You can add some embroidery on the top part of the names of your children, family or friends.
4. Christmas Lantern
With this Christmas DIY hack, you’re not only able to make your own lantern but you can also become environment-friendly. Here’s how to do it. First, you will need a sand paper, a tea light candle, a gold spray paint, a Stanley knife, ruler, masking tape and your empty and washed out can. With a ruler and masking tape, mark out the can. Then score straight lines along the can according to the marks. Cut through the surface. Gently press down the can and bend each section until it takes even shape. Spray with couple of paint (any color will do). Pop a tea light in the bottom of the can and light the lantern. It’s easy but you just have to be careful while doing the process.
