5 Adorable DIY Christmas Decorations, Gifts, and Treats

Do you need a few easy Christmas ideas? Then you’ve come to the right place!

Here are my 5 favorite, easy, DIY Christmas ideas I found on Pinterest.

Christmas tree in vintage tin:

When I saw this picture on Pinterest, I was inspired to use a vintage tin as a container for a little tree because I own several.

And the candle on the tree reminds me of my childhood — we did have some real candles on our Christmas trees when I was a kid.

I’d never do it myself, and I wouldn’t recommend you do — it’s just too dangerous — but how sweet is this tin with the walnuts as decoration?

Donut snowmen:

These adorable donut snowmen are easy to make, with the kids or as a sweet surprise for them!

Reindeer noses with malt balls and one red gum ball:

I have so many cellophane bags lying around for gift wrapping and to wrap my teacup candles, so this would be super easy to copy.

DIY snow globes:

I’ve made these cute snow globes with mason jars since seeing this picture. I certainly have enough mason jars – I just bought another little one today at a thrift store.

Easy-to-make centerpiece with cake plate and boxes:

Yes, please! Perfect for when you don’t have space for a big Christmas tree or want another one in the house for a different room.

Pin these ideas for later!

Donut snowmen, it’s on my to do list, so cute. I’ve got like 1000 christmas things pinned and I’ve done about 3 :P

You’re right. These are adorable. Thinking about doing the box tree centerpiece for my table.
