Bake Your Own Ornaments
For truly simple and personal Christmas tree decorations, you can bake them yourself! Make a classic salt dough, roll out to around 2cm thick and cut out your desired shapes either using a cookie cutter, or by hand if you’re feeling confident. Use a straw to create the hole to hang your ornaments, and bake at 210 C for approximately an hour or until dry. Thread some string through the hole, tie together and your ornaments are ready to hang on the tree, or around your room!
Salt dough recipe:
4 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
1 ½ cups warm water
Combine in mixing bowl then knead until smooth.
Candy Cane Vase
Often the best DIY homeware décor ideas are also the most effective. You can make a “vase” from candy canes by simply gluing the cans around an old can or jar, gluing them close together so that the jar is not visible anymore. Then fill the vase with a Christmas themed flower like poinsettias, and at the end of Christmas, you can eat your edible vase!
Recycled Christmas Stockings
For a creative Christmas room decorations idea, why not make your own Christmas stockings? Old Christmas woollen jumpers can be easily turned into Christmas stockings: simply lay them out flat and cut out the stocking shape. Not just how to decorate your room, you can also fill stockings with small gifts to surprise your family on Christmas Day!
Make a Wreath of Bows
You can make a very simple and effective wreath from wrapping ribbon bows, which you can easily buy in the wrapping paper section of your local newsagent, or you can make them yourself from wrapping ribbon. To make this unique Christmas homeware décor item, start with a Styrofoam wreath base. Then take around 30-60 ribbon bows (depending on the size of your wreath) and glue them on with a hot glue gun. The whole thing takes around 20 minutes, and the result is very effective!
Wondering how to decorate your room creatively this Christmas? You can make beautiful snowflakes with just some ice cream sticks.
