I personally love everything to do with the Christmas season. My very favorite part of Christmas is the decorating. I absolutely enjoy everything about decorating for Christmas, from the buying of the decorations to the actual putting up of the decorations. This year, I have decided to try and make my own decorations. Here are some amazing DIYs for Christmas decorations for you to try out with me this Christmas.
Plastic cup Light Globe
The part I love about this DIY is that I can to reuse and recycle. You can simply wash some already used clear plastic cups to make this globe. It involves sticking together the plastic cups to make a ball like shape, and punching in some holes into the cups so to place your Christmas lights. You can then hang these from the ceiling.
Foam Ball Snowman
Foam balls can easily be used to make little snowmen. You can stick two balls together. Then, dip one ball into some Christmas colored glitters after you have covered it in glue. You can decide to apply glue on the ball in a certain pattern so that when dipped in glitter, that pattern pops out.
To make this snowman, you will need to use some white wool thread. Dip the wool into some liquid papier Mache glue. Then, wrap the thread on balloons blown into the sizes you want for snowman. When the thread dries up, you can then pop the balloons. Place the balloons one on top of the other. You can then add the details to finish your snowman.

You can spray paint the cones with some gold so that the macaroni and cones are the same color. You can then add some green Christmas decoration ribbons so to give your macaroni trees some realistic color. You can then complete these trees by adding little ornament or beads and a star at the top.

To tie them together, make sure you use a string that will also allow you to hang the trees from it. You can then stick some beads onto the twig trees.
String on Paper Christmas trees

Then, you simply tie a mini scarf to the joining point and sew on a small piece of orange cloth for the snowman’s nose and some brown woolen thread for the hands, and sew on a little black hat on the head. You can use tiny black beads for the eyes and mouth.

Orange Peel decorations
The best part about using orange peels is that they not only do they bring in a bright color in your decorations, but they also bring in a beautiful scent. You can cut up the orange peels into little stars and place them among your other natural decorations such as twig trees or pinecone trees.
Orange Christmas Shapes
To make these, you will have to use cookie cutters to make the Christmas shapes from the orange peels. When you have cut the shapes out, place them on a dry area so that they dry up without rotting. You can then attach some string to the shapes for hanging. These shapes can be hung in Christmas trees.
Stair Rail Fun
If you do not know what to do with the staircase railing, then this is an excellent DIY for you. All you will need to do is to stick some cotton wool onto the railing, then stick some penguins in a way that makes them look as though they are sliding down on some ice. This is quite fun and creative.
Snow Shoe Print
For this, you can draw up your shoe print on a piece of paper. Cut out the shoe print. Take the main piece of paper you cut out the shoe print from and use it as a stencil. Place it wherever you want the shoe prints to be. Then, use some pieces of cotton wool, or fake snow to fill in the cut out bits. Carefully lift the stencil and you will have yourself some perfect footprints.
Candy Cane Vase
To make this, you can use a container that will allow some candy cane to stand fully. Then, place the candy cane into the container with the hooks facing the outside. Make sure that the candy canes are arranged perfectly that no part of the container is showing. You can then place some red roses into this candy cane vase.
