10 Dollar Store DIY Christmas Decorations for Your Holiday Home

When it comes to Christmas and the Holiday season, in general, there are a few memories that always come to mind:

  • No school
  • Hearing the same 10 songs on repeat
  • Good food
  • Decorations

Decorations everywhere.

Some of the stuff was diy christmas decorations and others was store bought. It didn’t matter. Every decoration had a specific memory attached to it and so I always valued those moments.

When it came time to owning my own home I knew I needed to carry on the Winter Wonderland tradition of decorating my house for the holidays but I didn’t want to hop onto Amazon and buy everything.

You can find all the items you need from Dollar Tree. You will be able to have expensive looking Christmas decor on a budget.

10 Dollar Store DIY Christmas Decorations

These decorations are not only easy to make but they are fun to make as well. Truly a great activity to gather people around and celebrate the holidays together.

1. Mason Jar Globes

When I first saw these Mason Jar snowglobes I didn’t even think they were real.

As a kid, I loved to play with snowglobes. They didn’t do much but I didn’t need much to entertain me. I loved the idea of being in a different world where it snowed. I grew up in Florida so the closest I got to snow was Jimmy McGreaves dandruff in the 4th grade.

What’s great about these snowglobes is that they use a lot of natural ingredients. They may not last as long as the giftshop versions but that’s okay.

If you’re looking to get some Mason Jars you can always order them off of Amazon at a pretty good price. Mason Jars can be used for anything!

2. DIY Embossed Foil Leaf Wreath

This truly looks like one of those things that you would buy at the store. In fact, when I read about how to make this foil wreath I wasn’t sure the folks were pulling my chain.

But it’s legit and you can make it yourself if you want to put the time into it.

Items you’ll need to make this:

  • Foil baking sheet or foil oven liner
  • Cutting mat, foam board or magazine
  • Gold spray paint
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Wooden embroidery hoop or wreath form

3. Gem Icicle Ornaments

If you’re going to have a tree you need ornaments. A lot of them.

Every year in elementary school we would make an ornament. Those were always ugly. These are not. These are glam Christmas ornaments.

What you’ll need to make these fun diy “crystal” ornaments:

4. Duster Christmas Wreath

This is one of those ideas that you look at and say:

This is so crazy it just might work!

And it does work!

I could never imagine getting a couple of dusters and putting together a wreath out of them but that’s why we have other brilliant people to do the thinking for us.

5. DIY Botanical Ornament

I try not to play favorites but this one is my favorite of the bunch.

Unfortunately, if you want to go all natural with it, then it will totally depend on where you live. Seeing as how I live in the desert, I don’t think I can get pine needles and cranberries in mine. It really just depends on what your mood is but the only thing holding you back is your imagination.

You can grab the clear ornaments right off of Amazon.

6. Snowy Pinecone Candle Jars

Once you start to get into DIY crafts and decorations you quickly see how useful Mason Jars become. They have so many uses it’s out of this world!

These snowy pinecone candle jars are another great use of them and don’t take much time at all to make. I am obsessed with using Snow-tex on all my diy christmas decorations!

Here is what you need:

  • glass jar
  • 2 pinecones
  • Lace
  • Twine and/or baker’s twine
  • Hot glue gun
  • Snow-Tex
  • Epsom salt
  • Candle

Willow branches also have a ton of different uses. Besides weddings they make for great holiday decorations that you can really do cool things with.

These iced branches is just one example.

8. Mini Stocking Silverware Holders

These are so cute. And, you may even already have mini Christmas stockings you have received or bought over the years (yay Free!). If not, check out your local dollar store or grab these from Amazon.

9. Christmas Tree Napkins

We end with the Queen of Home decorations, Martha Stewart. These are pretty cool and if you wanted to you could go crazy and build a whole forest of them. They are just made out of green paper!

DIY Christmas Decorations Have Memories

One of the best things about DIY Christmas decorations is that they come with memories attached. Whether it’s making them with your kids or getting a little tipsy off of too much egg nog, it’s great to have stuff around your home that means something during the holidays.

I’d love to hear what your favorite decoration to make is so that I can continue to expand my own Winter Wonderland.
