Happy Christmas Eve Eve friends!!
Who doesn’t love a good last-minute decor craft? I know I do, almost as much as a last-minute blog post 😉 These 2 crafts are the perfect, easy, and inexpensive answers to adding just the right amount of cheer to your holiday decor. They can both be made in a hour, or the full length of a Christmas movie, and they can also be done individually or with the whole family!
The first craft idea comes from my BRILLIANTLY creative mother: DIY Christmas Tree Topiaries!
Here’s what you’ll need:
This literally takes 3 THINGS to make y’all!! Or 4 if you want to add lights 🙂
See?! Crazy easy and adds SO much! Well done Momma B 🙂
The second craft takes a little more time and some more supplies… but it looks great practically anywhere in the house: DIY Cranberry Sign
Wood letters at any craft store would have worked too, I just couldn’t find any at the time 😉
Paint the letters red INCLUDING THE SIDES. The cranberries, no matter how much you cram them together, will not completely cover up the white of the styrofoam (or brown of the wood letters you could get). And unless you plan on hanging them so they are eye level, the sides will also show. I didn’t think of this until after I was done and therefore only painted on side of one letter…oh well!
Take the cranberries and hot glue like there’s no tomorrow. This will be the most time consuming part of the craft. It’s a lot like putting together a puzzle. You got to find the right cranberry that fits the row, is the right color/shape and isn’t completely smushed. But trust me, when you finish a letter it is the BEST!
There you have it folks! Some last-minute Christmas DIYs to do on Christmas Eve Day! These are sure to be the hit of the holiday and make all your relatives jealous at you Christmas dinner (or breakfast/brunch/lunch) 🙂
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays y’all!!
