Easy DIY Holiday Decor

With the holidays upon us, we love nothing more than to create an inviting and cozy place to call home. Holiday decor gives your home a sense of family, celebration and good spirit. As the holidays call for delicious spreads, travel, gifts and more… holidays are not only a time of the year we look forward to but it can also thin out your wallet.

There are millions of DIY projects out there, but from someone who takes on the challenge quite a bit, it can be just as expensive as buying new merchandise and even more exhausting. I’ve listed a few DIY holiday decor ideas that really only use 3-4 items and all can be bought at your local Micheal’s, Jo-Ann fabrics or even existing items you may already have lying around your home.

Using brass tacks and any candle in any color, create your own pattern!
