In this article, I will introduce you to DIY rustic style Christmas decorations. The holiday season is the time of year when you can go overboard on the number of decorations without a problem! Personally, I have a thing for decorations in neutral tones. Decorations can sometimes get very expensive, so here is a great alternative to save on your decoration budget.

Handmade tree decorations 🎄

Do this using string

For the ones above, all you have to do is cut a shape out of cardboard, wrap it with rope and glue the rope to the cardboard. Simple, effective and inexpensive!

For this one, use paper

To make from recycled ornaments

What’s better when doing things yourself than to recycling what you already have?

To achieve this result, all you have to do is mix baking soda with glue and paint. Then, you apply the mixture to your piece to have this opaque and textured effect. I love the vintage style it gives to the Christmas ornaments

Christmas candles 🕯️

Candles help create a relaxing and warm ambiance. Here are ideas on how to showcase your candles.

You only need a few things to achieve the result. For fir branches, you can even take them directly from the forest. Can it get more DYI? 😂!!

Make your own Christmas village 🏠

Gather all your houses, branches and mini trees to create your personalized Christmas village.

Homemade Christmas wreath

Garlands look beautiful when you hang them above the fireplace, door frames or even on a wall.

The first garland is made of dried oranges. All you have to do is slice an orange thinly. Dry them in the oven at 175°F for one hour or until the slices are completely dry. Tie the dried orange slices to a burlap string, then add a leaf garland on top.

The second is made of pine cones and wooden beads glued to burlap string. Make a sequence to have the pattern effect.

The third garland is made from paper cut into a repeating patterns and string or wool.

Make your little trees 🎄

I would put little trees everywhere. It looks beautiful on a desk, on the fireplace, in the center of the table, everywhere!

To achieve this result, all you have to do is make a cardboard cone and wrap it with string and glue it all together. Otherwise, you can also just make a triangle instead of a cone like in the last image.

I hope I’ve inspired you to make some decorations by yourself! All my ideas come from inspirations taken on Pinterest. I created  a board with other really cute ideas and inspirations 😍

Happy Holidays! 🎁🎄
