8 easy (and budget-friendly) DIY holiday decor ideas

Whether you want to celebrate the holidays or simply make your house more cozy for winter, try these do-it-yourself decorating ideas. They use recycled or repurposed materials, which is like a gift for your home and the planet.

1. Wreath makeover: Instead of buying a new one, give a tired old wreath a frosty winter look with some glitter spray (pictured above).

4. Instant fireplace: No fireplace? No problem! Use more of that chalkboard paint and chalk to create a faux fireplace on a wall or canvas. Add an old curtain rod and twine, and you can even make a mantel to go above it.

7. Cozy candles: Make small vases or candles in a jar more festive by wrapping them up. Cut the sleeves off a worn-out sweater and slide them over a vase or jar. Or grab some twine and ribbon and wind them around (pictured above) for a more rustic touch.

8. Tree of jars: Fill several Mason jars with festive items, then stack them in a pyramid to form a tree shape. You can even drape lights on it.
