We’ve been passing holiday decorations in stores ever since Halloween ended. It’s that time of year when stores bombard us with their endless supplies of holiday decorations. Sure, it’s easy to buy decorations at the store, but you’re often being charged a premium for these seasonal products. Give DIY projects a chance to give your home some holiday spirit this year! We’ve got 5 ideas for you right here.

With all of the bright green, shiny red, lights, and glitter, holiday decorations can be a little overwhelming. To achieve a more rustic look this holiday season, give this wooden Christmas tree a try. We recommend using reclaimed barn wood!

Bring the Christmas trees outside! Here’s a project that you can really make your own. You get to determine the size and the paint color(s) to coordinate with the rest of your decorations. To ensure your outdoor holiday decor withstands the wear and tear that comes with being outside, use a durable wood like longleaf pine.
3. Reversible Reclaimed Wood Scarecrow & Snowman

Snowmen don’t always have to be made with snow! If you live in an area that’s unlikely to see a White Christmas, this project is a great way to bring one of winter’s most timeless icons to your front yard. Again, we recommend using a durable wood so that your snowman doesn’t wither away.
5. Reclaimed Wood Snowflake

This snowflake is another great idea if you’re decorating a more rustic atmosphere. Of course, you can always paint it with your favorite holiday colors, too. It’s an easy and inexpensive build that brings wintry style to any room or outdoor space.
