How to Make Christmas Decorations

Instead of using prepackaged ho-ho-hum holiday decorations, craft your own decor to create a warm and cozy Christmas. With homemade ornaments for the tree, garland for the mantel, and outdoor decorations for the whole house, you're sure to find DIY Christmas decorations that fit your style and skill level.

Create Stunning Christmas Tree Decorations

Whether you prefer a traditional tree or like to experiment with unique colors and accents, start from the ground up. Handcrafted Christmas tree skirts, simple ornaments, easy-to-make garlands, and a uniquely-you Christmas tree topper will make your tree a welcome and warming sight to you and your holiday guests -- no matter when you decide to put it up or take it down.
