DIY Christmas Decorations Part 2!

DIY Christmas Decorations Part 2!

Hi loves!

I mean, clearly I just can't control myself when it comes to Christmas decorations and DIY activities. Just when I think I have enough decorations, I look on Pinterest and get inspired all over again. We only have one more weekend before Christmas so instead of going out to shop, hop on your phone and Amazon prime the rest of your gifts. This way you'll be able to spend your weekend inside creating these adorable Christmas decorations!

Candy Cane Candles

My favorite part about Christmas decorations is how cozy they make your house feel. All the lights, candles, the warm colors. I've been really obsessed with candles lately. Not just because of the smell, they just seem to add a little bit of peacefulness to a room. But of course, you gotta spice them up a bit to make them more festive!

What you'll need:

  • 3 white candles, all different sizes
  • candle stand
  • red ribbon
  • glue

Super simple, wrap your candles with the red ribbon at an angle to make it look like a candy cane. If you wrap it tight enough, the ribbon will stay in place so that you'll only need to glue the beginning and end of the ribbon. Assemble the candles on the stand and ta-da! So cute and cozy!

Snow Globe Mason Jars

I've seen so many different recreations of these snow globe mason jars on Pinterest, I kinda had to make them. I got a few battle wounds from the hot glue gun but I guess it was worth it because they're just so cute.

What you'll need:

  • mason jars
  • mini Christmas tree 
  • mini Christmas-y things
  • glitter
  • hot glue gun

First things first, make sure you get wide mouth mason jars instead of regular mouth mason jars. I got regular mouth ones so I had to glue a layer of cotton balls on the lid first so that everything else I added in was above the brim of the jar. Make sure you glue your little figurines really good and make sure the glue is completely dry before putting everything together. Once it's dry, fill your jar up all the way with water. Add some glitter to the water, twist on the lid and shake it up.

Learn from my mistakes on this one, wide mouth mason jars and be careful with the hot glue gun! 

Tis the Season Banner

On one of my many trips to the craft store, I came across this wooden banner and thought it would be so cute to paint and hang up on the wall. This is definitely an easy one, really not much to "DIY" besides painting and hanging… but so what, tell everyone you made it anyways, see if you can get away with it!

What you'll need:

  • unfinished wooden banner (I found this one at Michael's)
  • paint
  • paint brushes
  • ornaments

Super simple, paint your letters, and wait for them to dry. The hardest part will definitely be getting the string through the tiny little holes on each letter, such a pain in the ass. If you have any extra ornaments hanging around, add them on to make it even more festive. Hang it up and you're good to go. This would be perfect if you decide to throw a last minute Christmas party (I better be invited) and need to jazz up your place. 

Okay, there you have it... three more cute and fun DIY Christmas Decorations. I think this will be my last DIY decorations post of the season (I think…. not making any promises). I hope you guys enjoyed them or even recreated them! I'd love to see them if you did! Until next time… Ho ho ho, xoxo Saint Nina-las. Whaaaat? Too much?!

Noted, Nina
