DIY Christmas Decor Ideas for Indoors
Here’s a list of beautiful DIY indoor Christmas decor ideas for your home! These 23 Christmas decoration ideas are perfect for indoors, like your living room. Get in the holiday spirit by decorating the inside of your house using these ideas as inspiration!
One of the best things about the holiday season is decorating for Christmas. There’s something about pulling out tubs of Christmas decorations and putting ornaments on a tree.
In our house, I’m a bit of a Scrooge and I don’t let the family actually decorate until the day after Thanksgiving. I also am not a very big fan of Christmas music, either. I know, I know – like I said, Scrooge.
In 2020, however, I let them decorate early. That was an extremely difficult year, and having those decorations up before Thanksgiving made things seem happier and more cheerful.
Even more fun that putting up the decorations is actually making those decorations! So we created this list of easy DIY Christmas decorations that you and your kids can make this Christmas. They’re great to work on together as a family, or you can make them with friends for a Christmas craft party.
