Today, I have a new Christmas DIY for you. Can you believe it’s only 10 days until Christmas? Since we have more than one week to go, you definitely have time for a few more DIYs before Christmas, and today I’m bringing you two new projects. One is super simple, and the second one takes a little bit more time, but still is super-easy to make. Let’s get into it!
Decorative Christmas Jar
For this project, you will need a jar, or a glass container that you want to fill up, as well as everything you will put in it, and some Christmas lights. I used a big jar (2 or 3 litres), some pine cones, red glittery balls, white cotton balls and little Christmas lights that need 2 AA batteries.
I started by placing the Christmas lights in the jar. As I put a part of the lights, I added some pine cones and red and white balls, then added more Christmas lights, until the jar was full.
I tied the battery ‘container’ around the handle of the jar, so that it doesn’t fall off, and that’s it! The jar is finished!
This is super simple, but looks amazing as a table decoration.
For this project, you will need a styrofoam ball and whatever decorations you will use on it, a hot glue gun and some creativity. I used some old Christmas decorations, pine cones and some more red glittery balls I used in the previous project. Later on, I also used some gold spray paint.
Soon after I started gluing all the decoration onto the ball, I tied a red ribbon around the ball, in order to put a string through it and hang it up easily, and to have some sort of orientation around the ball. I secured the ribbon with hot glue.
After that, all you have to do is use the hot glue gun to glue the decorations to the styrofoam ball. I tried using wire and sticking the decorations in the ball, but it didn’t really work. You will need someone to hold the ball for you, because it’s hard to hold it and glue the decorations at the same time.
Once I filled the entire surface of the ball with decorations, I realized some white styrofoam was still peeking through, so I sprayed it with gold spray paint
And that’s it!
