DIY Holiday Decorations

HAPPY FRIDAY and Happy Veterans Day!!!!!!! We made it to the end of the work week!! This has been an especially long week, and I am really looking forward to the weekend. I have started thinking about the holidays and what I can do differently in my own home, and what new traditions and decorations I can share with my family. Here are some DIY holiday decorations that I want to try this year.

I love antique-looking ornaments, and putting them in a vase is a fun, different way of displaying them.

So cute, simple, and inexpensive for New Years!

I love these as centerpieces of the Christmas brunch or dinner table!

These sparkled tree branches would transfer well from Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years.
I love the simple glamour of them!

I love the idea of hanging these ornaments from the chandelier.

  1. I love those glittery sticks! So sparkly and fabulous! I usually do traditional red and gold, but I am thinking of changing it up to green and turquoise this year!

  2. I know, right? They're so easy and would look great next to candles or the lights on the Christmas tree. I love the idea of changing up the colors!

  3. Thanks for commenting on my blog the other day. I've just found your blog and love it! Sarah from
