Christmas Decor DIYs

Need some quick Christmas DIY decor ideas before family and friends show up for the holidays? Look no further, I have two very simple DIYs with minimal materials required. These are sure to bring holiday joy to any room.  I completed both of these projects on the same day and they only took a couple of hours. Mostly just waiting for the paint to dry! 

For both of these projects, I used Rust-oleum Metallic spray paint in silver and copper.  You can get these at any hardware store, but I bought mine off Amazon.  

While browsing Christmas decorations  at Jo-Ann Fabrics, I ran into these two fellows! As soon as I saw them, I knew that I would have to get them and find a place for them in our home.  I was lucky enough that Jo-Ann Fabrics was having a big ale that day and got these 60% off, so I ended up paying around $10 for both of these.  

I then spray painted both of these with the silver spray paint.  I have them two coats, waiting about 20 minutes after each coat.  

I made a run to the Dollar Tree to get some bells that I could add around their necks, but I couldn't find any big enough.  So, I had to improvise by using this ornament that I took apart and made my own collars.

Follow the pictures below to see how I made them!

1. Start by taking the ornament apart.

3. Pass your new ribbon through.

5. Place your ribbon on the glue and hold in place for 10-20 seconds.

2. Remove the ribbon.

4. Use a hot glue gun and place some on top of the bell.

6. Finish result! Now follow steps 4-5 and do the other side.

Finished product! All for about $3!

Take a look how I have used the finished product to decorate my home!


This next DIY was also super easy and cheap! I had these pine cones from last year and I always felt that they needed a little something to make them extra special.  You can't go wrong with silver and copper spray paint right?!

I started by giving the pine coats a good layer of the silver spray paint. After about 20 minutes of letting them dry, I grabbed my copper spray paint can and gave the pine cones a light dust. I did this by making sure I didn't get too close to the pine cones letting the copper paint lightly fall on them.  Another 20-30 minutes to dry and this DIY are done! 

They look so pretty and I have been using them all over the house.  Check out some of the pictures below!
