Thanksgiving leftovers are still in the fridge and December begins this week, which means that the holiday season has kicked into high gear!
The holidays are a time for lots of festive fun. Decorating your apartment for the holidays is a great way to get in the spirit and show off your style. Make your holiday décor even more original this year by adding DIY touches.
DIY holiday decorations will add warmth and personality to any apartment. Not sure where to start? Or maybe you are looking for some inspiration? HHHunt Apartment Living has you covered with simple and fabulous holiday decorating ideas.
Start with a Plan
The best DIY projects are the ones that start with a plan. Don’t stress yourself out! Think about what is realistic with your schedule and work around that. Having a plan to decorate will help you feel in control and avoid getting overwhelmed.
Wrapping gifts is a quintessential part of the holidays and is so easy to get creative with. Reuse interesting papers, bags, newspapers, and magazines to wrap gifts. Have fun with unique ribbons and bows. You can even wrap empty boxes of different shapes and sizes to use as holiday décor around your apartment. They make great accents anywhere and can be interesting centerpieces.
Spruce Up Your Garland
Garland is such a simple holiday decoration and adds so much to a room. Spruce it up by adding plaid ribbons to make the garland feel contemporary and stylish. We love this idea from House Beautiful.
Wreaths offer so much versatility and allow you to experiment with your holiday décor. Southern Living has a great set of DIY wreath ideas, including the modern wreath, double stack, traditional, and centerpiece. The best part? Begin with a premade wreath and embellish it to fit your style. So simple and stunning!
Felt Tree Hurricanes
Dressing up your table for the holidays is always a good idea. We can’t get enough of Good Housekeeping’s Felt Tree Hurricanes. They make such a statement and allow you to pull in greenery. Simply add felt trees of various sizes and shades to glass candles for an instant DIY win.
We hope you’ll try these DIY holiday decorating ideas and give your apartment home that extra special holiday vibe. Afterall, we believe it’s how you live that matters.
We wish you a happy holiday season!
