Although I don’t have many Christmas decorations up yet this year, I know that those trees will look so much better against freshly-painted walls when (if?) we eventually get them up.
I thought it couldn’t hurt to share a few of my projects from last year though, just because I always love a good easy-peasy project and I’m sure a lot of you do too.
Here are some of my favorites!
You have to trim down the tree anyway so it can drink and fit inside your house, why not re-use those pieces? We made these wood slice snowman ornaments last year and this year I hope to come up with a few more ideas for these tree pieces. They look great when they’re all hung up!
If you find a couple of Christmas napkins that you really love, why not whip up one of these table runners and enjoy them everyday?
Create a fun Christmas tree shape on your wall using different lengths of some green ribbon. I put mine on burlap for some texture, but you can put yours straight on the wall as well! My secret for getting it to stick to the wall with no damage? Spray starch and an iron!
If you love the look of natural wreaths made with fresh greenery, but don’t want to put in all the work to get a perfect circle, try my trick out for the Easiest Natural Christmas Wreath!
OK, sure, this whole wall art project took a little longer than 10 minutes, but each individual sign was so quick to make! They even look great on their own, so you could easily just make one for a little extra color somewhere. You can easily whip up a whole bunch of them too over a weekend and have a showstopper like this one. Some of the signs took less than 5 minutes to paint!
So there you go! Some of my best, brightest, and quickest Christmas projects to date. I hope you leave today just a little more inspired to have yourself an easy-peasy Christmas!
