Christmas time is expensive. Between buying gifts, hosting parties, and traveling to see family, you are probably spending a solid amount of cash. Why waste extra money on expensive decorations? Cheap plastic ornaments can be made into an adorable wreath that will look WAY more expensive than it actually is! Here is an easy tutorial for this cute DIY.

What you will need:

  • Foam wreath
  • Hot glue gun
  • Plastic ornaments
  • Ribbon343b198ddab9ef2cf1c81f5b965daae3

Lay out the foam wreath. Next, put some hot glue on an ornament and place it on the wreath. Do this with the rest of the ornaments, and mix up small and large ornaments of different shades of the same color. Glue the ornaments to both the wreath and to each other. That will keep them from coming loose and falling off. Tie some ribbon in a bow at the top of the wreath to allow it to hang from a hook.

That’s it! How easy was that? Now you have a wreath that looks like it is store bought! Your friends will totally love it.

XOXO, Chels

Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year. Really and truly. All of the pretty decorations make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and can really keep you feeling merry and bright all season long. If you are in college and living in a dorm, you can still decorate your space and make it feel like home. Here are a few cute and easy Christmas decorations for your dorm!

  1. Window ornaments: I think this idea is darling. Just tie plastic ball ornaments to ribbon cut at different lengths, and then tie the ribbon to the curtain rods in your windows! This is a cute way to hang ornaments, especially if you don’t have a Christmas tree in your room.window
  2. Decorate your door: There are so many creative ways to decorate your dorm room door for Christmas, like making it look like a giant wrapped present, or making it look like a fireplace with stockings with you and your roommate’s names on them hanging from it. Your room is sure to be the cutest and most festive one on the floor!door
  3. Twinkly lights: Hang those puppies everywhere! From the ceiling to the window frames to the walls. You can really get creative with them, or keep it simple, but whatever the case twinkly lights are the ultimate Christmas decor must-have. They give off such a calming, warm wintry vibe.

All of these ideas are super easy, super cheap, and totally cute.

I LOVE decorating for Christmas! It is just one of the many reasons I love the holiday season. I came across an awesome DIY that I think you all are going to love! It adds sparkle to any mantle!

What you will need:

-100 mini lights

-1 canvas

1. Lay your canvas down on the floor or a flat surface and draw whatever pattern you want on the back of the canvas with a pencil. I chose to draw a snowflake-ish pattern on mine. Make sure you keep the pattern a little further apart to leave room for the lights. You can use an ice pick to poke the holes in the canvas where you made the pencil marks. Be careful though, ice picks are sharp suckers!

2. Poke the tip of the lights through the holes you have made in the canvas. You can secure the lights in the holes with hot glue if you want. The picture below shows what a hot mess the back of the canvas will look like, but it also shows how awesome it looks from the front! Prop this sucker up on your mantle, add some garland and a few sparkely accent pieces, and you will have the best looking mantle on the block!
