Holiday DIY Ideas that You’ll Actually Use

Everyone loves a DIY project, but have you ever finished one and then tucked it away because it just wasn’t quite what you wanted? Or maybe you’re like me and have had total pinterest fails, where the project just ends up in the trash!

This year, we’re spending even more time at home, and its the perfect time to work on some DIY decorations that you’ll actually love. I compiled a round up of DIY projects that aren’t terribly difficult, but will also leave you with an end product you’ll love! Keep reading for my favorite projects!

Wreath Making: The possibilities for wreath making are endless! Simply buy a fresh green wreath or a base at a craft store, and decorate with greenery, ribbons, or little decorations from a dollar store! The wreath above would be so easy to make on your own (and pretty fun too!).

Mason Jar Candle Holders: This DIY from A Pumpkin and a Princess is a cute way to make decorative candle holders, or could be used as a gift! After frosting the jars, you could decorate however you wanted and use to give away holiday treats too! I love a multi-purpose project.

Felt Snowflake Garland: Another really cute idea from Pottery Barn Kids is this felt snowflake garland. You would need a little patience drawing and cutting out the snowflakes, but could totally make this cute wintery garland yourself with felt.
