DIY Christmas Tree Decorations

Posted on December 12, 2023 by

It’s time to decorate the tree! But instead of heading to the shops to buy ornaments and baubles, why not try making some yourself.

marbled Christmas tree decorations

Who would’ve thought that nail varnish could be used in such a creative way? Upgrade some plain white baubles using a marbling technique and create these lovely wintery coloured decorations by Alice and Lois.

Thinking of doing a Christmas embroidery project during December? Turn them into tree decorations! Leandra Levanda has a lovely tutorial for super mini embroidery hoops that’ll hang perfectly on a slightly bigger tree….or maybe next to the tree if it’s a little one like mine.

edible Christmas tree decorations

I personally love an edible tree decoration and what better than a traditional gingerbread snowflake, like these from the domestic goddess herself, Nigella Lawson.

upcycled Christmas tree decorations

Upcycle some old decorations that are past their best and create these modern looking brush-stroke baubles from Good Housekeeping instead. I love that these can be changed up depending on your colour scheme, or you could make each one a different colour.

air dry clay Christmas tree decorations

Air dry clay is so much fun to use and I love the variety of ornaments that A Pretty Fix makes with it, especially the ones printed with pine branches or stamped with Christmas words.

polymer clay Christmas tree decorations

Joyful Life also gives some options for making polymer clay decorations into gift tags, but you could easily hang these on the tree instead.

paper Christmas tree decorations

Paper decorations are perfect as they don’t weigh down the branches of your tree and you can make them in all the colours of the rainbow. These honeycomb ones from The House That Lars Built look fancy but without the price tag.

I did a whole post on macrame decorations a couple of years ago, but I had to add these little Scandi looking Santas from Soulful Notions to this one too.

    those Santa’s are so.nostalgic, nice to see something old school in the mix, though the upcycled painted ornaments are super pretty too.
