DIY Christmas decor

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, the time to turn your year round clutter into Christmas decor!

Paper roll advent calendar

Save your rolls! A full household should have no problem using 24 toilet paper rolls in a year, let alone a month.



Upcycled tray

A simple tray can turn a cluttered coffee table of Christmas knick-knacks into a beautiful display. Have a rusty baking sheet? Give it new life with a coat of paint and an artsy paper liner.

Plastic bottle ornaments

Try making unbreakable tree ornaments with empty pop bottles. Your kids will love this upcycled Christmas DIY!
