Everyone enjoys getting together, and painting together is a perfect way to get everyone excited while at the same time, beautifying your home.
There are many reasons you might want to decorate your house this holiday season. It’s an affordable and quick project that makes your home look beautiful and festive. And if you’re like us, you love the idea of being creative. Of course, you don’t have to be an artist to create beautiful designs and ornaments. There are so many DIY decorating ideas out there that are easy to execute, require little time and cost very little money.
Here are 11 simple projects you can do at home to transform your home for the holidays.
1. Decorate with lights
If you have a love for Christmas lights, why not light your home up with a festive display? There are several ways to do this. You can string your lights across your front porch or wrap them around your home’s exterior. When decorating your home with lights, it’s important to keep safety in mind. Make sure you don’t place any lights closer than 6 feet or 2.5 meters off the ground. You’ll also want to be sure to use approved lights, such as incandescent or LED lights that have low power requirements.
You can wrap your entire exterior with lights, and then decorate your front door, windows and porch with more traditional decorations. This is also a great way to decorate if you’re hosting a party since your guests will be able to see your festive exterior from the street.
2. Add stemware and candles
Adding stemware to your window painting is another way to create gorgeous decorations for your home. You can buy beautiful stemware for cheap at thrift stores or get creative and use something you already have. When it comes to candles, the options are endless. You can buy a variety you love or you can get creative and make your own.
If you’re looking for a unique homemade candle, try painting a tinfoil flower using the DIY paintbrush. If you’re looking for something more traditional, you can add twinkle lights or even a simple candle. The possibilities are endless.
3. Hang a garland
If you’re looking for an easy holiday decoration to hang on your windows, consider a garland. You can make your own at home or shop online for pre-made garlands. We love these DIY Christmas garlands that are easy to put together and look festive. You can also keep it simple by just hanging a few lights.
You can also add a little bit of holiday magic by placing some mason jars filled with holiday treats like candy, nuts and cookies. Or, how about some collection bowls filled with pinecones, snowballs or other holiday decorations. You can also add a simple handmade greeting card to the jar. If you’re looking for a more natural look, you can also line your shelves or walls with greenery to create a rustic holiday look.
4. Make a Santa window frame
Santa window decor is a tradition. If you’re looking for an easy DIY Santa window frame project, you can make one of these DIY frames with just a few items from your house. We love the idea of adding a festive yet classy touch to the exterior of your home. In addition, it’s a fun, low-cost and easy DIY project you can do with the entire family, which is perfect for the holidays.
You can also get creative with the design of your frame. Make it more personal by adding photos, a quote or a special message. Or, you can also choose a more general theme that reflects your Christmas decor theme. For example, if you choose to use a Christmas frame theme, you can add holly, mistletoe, lights or snowflakes. We also love the idea of using a stencil to create a more bold and festive design.
5. Make a paper bag nativity
Paper bag nativity is another classic DIY Christmas project that you can make at home. This project is perfect for kids who love to help out and are interested in learning the craft. You can either make the nativity scene from scratch or use a pre-made nativity set. Then, you can simply cut out the character figurines and place them in the bags.
You can also add some decorations such as streamers, stickers or maybe even some ornaments. Better yet, you can also opt to use your home’s windows to create a more dramatic effect. This project is simple and inexpensive, yet it’s also a fun activity that will make your home stand out this holiday season.
6. Make reindeer from cardboard
For this festive project, we recommend choosing a more general theme. For example, you can paint the front door a bold red and choose a Christmas-themed front door sign. Then, you can go around the yard and choose some trees that you think would look great in red lights.
You can also simply decorate your yard with Christmas lights, snowmen, trees ornaments, and holly. We love the idea of adding a few handmade signs that can also be used as a DIY Christmas project. You can also add a few homemade decorations such as pinecones, candy canes, popcorn or anything else that would be a fun addition to the holiday décor.
7. Make a Christmas wreath
There are many wreath crafts you can do, but we love a DIY Christmas wreath because it’s so easy to create. This project also allows you to use items like pinecones, holly and mistletoe.

It’s also a simple, low-cost and festive DIY project that will make your home stand out this holiday season.
8. Wrap your windows in ribbon
Ribbon can be used to wrap your windows, or you can also use it to wrap your door handles. It’s a simple, yet beautiful way to add colour to your home during the holidays.
9. Celebrate with a pop-up banner
A pop-up banner is another great and festive project for transforming your windows into something magical. There are many DIY Christmas pop-up banners available online. However, we love a DIY balloon banner because of its simplicity and affordability.
This project requires just a few materials and tools and is also pretty easy to execute. You can simply pop up the banner, affix it to your home with cling film and let it stand as a centrepiece. We love this banner because of its simplicity and affordability. You can also easily transform your home or business with this festive banner.
