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!

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.

The concept of hanging candles has been popular among decorations thanks to the Harry Potter series of books and movies. Today these candles can be made as a part of your DIY Halloween decorations. To make this work, you can take a series of lightweight candles and prepare some strings through them. These strings should be added around the middle and end parts to help keep the candles hanging properly. It is typically best to use paper materials for this, what with real candles being hard to clean up if you used them. Real candles may also be a fire hazard.

A spooky fence decoration can be added around your home. This will create a mysterious look that is symbolic of what one might find on a typical haunted house. A spooky fence can come with a fun look that features slim wooden planks that are unevenly spaced apart. Some of these can be crooked as well. This is to create a weathered and worn look that suggests that no one has been to a particular house for a while. This is a part of DIY Halloween decorations that adds a bit of special character to your property and can be as unique as you want it to be.
