DIY Holiday Decor: Transforming Your Home for the Season

DIY Holiday Decor: Transforming Your Home for the Season

With November officially here, we’re already embracing the colder weather, and thinking up new DIY home holiday ideas. This is the perfect opportunity to revamp your living space with small touches that have a big impact. We're sharing some of our go-to DIY holiday fixes, so that you can be inspired to infuse your home with the magic of the season however you choose to celebrate! 

Unwrapping the Festive Palette

The foundation of holiday decorating begins with a colour palette that captures the essence of the season (and your style!). Traditional hues like rich reds and forest greens might be timeless, but don’t always suit everyone’s taste. We love The House Beautiful’s suggestions, such as Burgundy & Copper, or Winter Whites. Or maybe you’re looking to go even bolder like a ‘Letter’s To Santa’ inspired tree. Whatever palette you choose, just ensure it’s something that will compliment your other decor choices.

DIY Ornaments

Let's break free from conventional DIY ornaments and leave those odd acorn ideas behind. This year, we're excited about vibrant bursts of colour and bringing life into your holiday decor with creative options like crafting dried citrus ornaments, assembling charming DIY paper houses or yarn paper stars.


Handcrafted Table Details

The focal point of any holiday celebration is frequently the dining table, where loved ones come together to partake in the festive ambiance. Enhance your table settings with personally crafted centerpieces that encapsulate the holiday spirit. We're absolutely obsessed with these charming rosemary wreath place cards, striking an ideal harmony between simplicity of execution and a heartfelt gesture for your guests. Alternatively, you could opt for a more traditional DIY approach by incorporating a blend of greenery and cranberries to create a cozy and inviting centerpiece for your table, as shown in the photo below 


Wrapper Paper, Make It Personal

Elevating the presentation of your gifts doesn't have to be a daunting task. It's as simple as adding a personal touch to your wrapping ideas. One approach we love is taking black wrapping paper and using a gold Sharpie to craft your own unique designs - It's a stylish way to make each gift special. Another pretty option is using stamped kraft paper, creating a one-of-a-kind wrap that perfectly suits the recipient.


Sustainable DIY Candles:

If you’re like us, the holidays mean creating cozy and warm ambiances, and candles are often the perfect touch to achieve this. However, it might surprise you to learn that many candles can often contain harmful and toxic chemicals that are bad for you and your home. This year, we’re ditching store-bought candles for homemade, eco-friendly versions. Like these, beeswax candles from Family Handyman. P.S. They make great gifts too!

We hope this has sparked your creativity for the holiday season. Stay tuned throughout the month of November for more creative ideas from hone, and make sure to follow us on Pinterest for even more holiday inspiration!
