It’s December 1st, and although Christmas music has been playing at the mall and radio for a month now, the holiday is just 25 days away! We are suckers for healthy and delicious meals, but nothing adds holiday cheer like some clever Christmas decorations.
DIY Light Bulb Christmas Tree Ornament
You know what’s more awesome than awesome Christmas tree ornaments? Ornaments that you made yourself! And this one is just too cute to pass up. It’s a tiny Christmas tree inside a light bulb, c’mon!
This will leave all your guests in complete awe as they enter your house. It’s a fantastic way to set the mood for one magical evening for kids and adults alike. Best part? It’s the easiest thing you’ll make.

8. DIY Penguin Slide
If you are looking for something over-the-top and guaranteed to make your kids scream in amazement, this is it! While we couldn’t find the instructions for this one, just grab a few penguins, lot of cotton and you are ready to start!
9. Virtual Fireplace
I’m a sucker for a nice virtual fireplace, as it still adds to the mood and is super simple to do. But when I saw this idea, it instantly made me laugh and I’m sure it will do the same for your guests. I would modify it a little, taking away the keyboard and mouse and running an HD fireplace burning video on YouTube. This way you got the sounds of the fire crackling and some real looking fire!
10. DIY Fridge Snowman
Your fridge is the perfect spot to add some holiday spirit. No directions are needed for this one, it’s simple enough.
11. A Christmas Plate Setting
Get creative with your place setting. It adds to the dining experience and is a fantastic way to greet your dinner guests!
12. Message via Ornaments
A nice addition to a fireplace or table. You can add Christmas sayings or your family names and it’s incredibly simple to make. All you need is gold pots (or gold spray paint), some ornaments and a marker!
13. DIY Christmas Ornament Drink
Sip in (Christmas) style. If you are going all out and setting up for a dinner, don’t forget the drinks!
14. A Lantern Full of Joy DIY
Head to your local flea market and pick up an old lantern. Why? Because you will be making an awesome Christmas decoration out of it!
Get some paper bags, cut out your favorite design and insert a flameless candle that glows (like this one) and voila! What an incredible way to light the path to your home.
