You only have to type the word ‘Christmas’ into Pinterest to find millions(?) of DIY style images. Showing you ‘How to make… a wreath, christmas cards, decorations, you name it, someone on Pinterest can show you how to do it. Now, with this being my first Christmas as a homeowner, my first Christmas being able to decorate exactly how I want, and my first Christmas having to PAY FOR all of the decorations, DIY is definitely an option I’m more than willing to explore.
I’ve always been an ‘arty’ type of person, my job is making things look pretty, so I do love the idea of being able to create something myself, something no one else has an exact copy of and that is exactly the way I want it to be (this is of course, if my DIY skills aren’t complete shit) AND if it’s a little bit cheaper than buying – what’s to lose?! I’ve got an entire board on Pinterest dedicated to Christmas DIY Ideas, which you can find here, but these are just a few of my favourite ones (if you click them, they should take you through to either the actual DIY ‘how to’ or the original Pinterest post).
None of these are my own work, but I am actually planning on trying out a few of these, so I’ll definitely do an update with the results. Have you tried any of these, or something similar? I’d love to get some more ideas!
