Last Minute Christmas Crafts and Décor DIYS

One of my favorite times of year to craft is Christmas but, I tend to put it off until the final week. Therefore, almost all of the Christmas crafts and décor DIYs I share are last minute ones!

A beautiful but cheap store bought poinsettia styled to look expensive in a vintage crock surrounded by pinecones and cranberries

How To Make a Jingle Bell Garland - Fixer upper farmhouse style

A few years ago I shared this super simple Jingle Bell garland. All you need is rope, some jingle bells, and a needle and thread (or a glue gun!). You can get all the details here.

DIY Chandelier Made with Glass Oui Yogurt Jars

My next last minute craft/DIY is this chandelier made with empty Oui yogurt jars. I love how this turned out! I added faux snow and battery operated tealights to each jar to give it that Christmas snowy look! Back when I made this I had to get on a step stool to manually turn on and off each light but now, you can get remote control operated tea lights from Amazon.

Create your own rustic holiday decor with a mason jar, fresh cut greenery, a mason jar, Christmas potpourri and twine. Get the details at:

And, this rustic mason jar diffuser was almost too easy to make! I went out and scrounged around my yard for some dried pods and greenery, added this Christmas potpourri to the inside of a mason jar, strapped on said scrounged-for greenery with cheap twine, and added a diffuser lid...bam...craft done plus it looked nice!

Christmas Ornament made from an embroidery hoop with a vintage music sheet inside and a bottle brush tree

Print out some sheet music (I share the resource here) and glue it to an embroidery hoop. Add a bottle brush tree and bam...a vintage looking ornament! Get the tutorial here!

Fluffy white wreath made with dusters from the dollar store

Head to the dollar store for some cheap them apart and glue them to a wreath form. Add a bow and you have a fluffy white wreath perfect for Christmas! Get all the info here.

Red Star Wreath made with Twigs

Red Star Wreath made with twigs from the yard and red berries from the dollar store. This was such an easy craft to make and it all started with having my kids clean up sticks from the yard. You can get all the details here.
