Have you started decorating for Christmas yet? Full disclosure… all of my stuff is up. I couldn’t help myself. 2020 needs some holiday cheer. Be on the lookout for an upcoming post on my Christmas décor this year, and check out last year’s Christmas décor here. But until then I’ve rounded up some fun neutral holiday DIY projects you can do to get into the holiday spirit (if you aren’t already!)
I also have a DIY project I’m currently working on myself that will be up in a couple weeks, so keep an eye out for that as well.
These gals I’m sharing with you today have a wide variety of holiday DIY projects that range from super easy to a little bit challenging. So whatever you level of skill may be, there is sure to be a project for you.
To view the full tutorial on any of these projects click their name under each photo.
Let's Check Out These Awesome Neutral Holiday DIY Projects!
This first one, I admit, is not really a DIY. But I wanted to include it because it’s so cute. And doing your own table setting is kind of a DIY because you are doing it yourself, right?! I just love the neutral tones, the warmth that the wood adds, and the variety of textures.
Next is this amazing Christmas tree made out of driftwood! How cool is this? I love that you can use items you can find to build this so it doesn’t necessarily need to cost a ton of money to make it. You can make it as big or as small as you’d like and it might also be fun to add some lights.
These cute little holiday luminaries are not at all hard to make. They would make for a really cute addition to your dining table centerpiece or would be equally as cute mixed in with your other holiday décor around your home. You could totally find the mason jars at the thrift store and maybe even candles too!
I think if you had a large wood dough bowl or tray with some evergreen sprigs laid on the bottom and then these luminaries on top, it would be such a simple yet beautiful centerpiece.
These white snowflakes are just beautiful and guess what they’re made out of. Toilet paper rolls! How awesome! Such a great way to reuse something that would otherwise be thrown away. You can easily paint them after you get them constructed and no one would ever think they were made from trash.
I love decorating with wood beads. Typically you see them used in garlands, so this wood bead wreath DIY is a unique and adorable way to decorate with wood beads.
You could add any ribbon that would best match your decorating style, or it could also be really fun to add a little bit of greenery to the top for a more natural feel.
They don’t have to just hang on the tree either, these could be cute hanging on your kitchen cabinets or with your stockings too!
I love making my own signs. You can fully customize it to make it exactly how you want. I love the rustic, distressed look of this Christmas sign. It is simple but still makes a strong statement. You can use her tutorial to make any kind of sign that will best suit your own home.
These cute little snowflakes are made from dollar store clothespins, making this not only an easy DIY but a cheap DIY. These make for really adorable ornaments but again, could totally be used around the house mixed in with your other Christmas décor. You can very easily choose whichever color and style ribbon you like. I think some twine would also be very cute with this!
Ok, these are so cool. I just love these wood slice trees. I might have to try making some of these myself. I have been hunting for antique wood trees but have yet to find some so I feel like these might fill that void for now!
Last up we have these giant holiday bells which are actually made from dollar tree plastic bowls. You could also try to find some at the thrift store to upcycle instead of buying new.
I love how these are painted to actually look like galvanized metal, so cool! She also has some that are painted white that are equally cool.
Also keep an eye out for ribbon, twine, fabric, and anything like that which you may want to use for any of these DIY projects, instead of buying new.
That’s all I have to share with you! I hope you loved these neutral holiday DIY projects and got some great inspiration to get your craft on!
