DIY Christmas Decorations

The Christmas countdown has begun and it’s time to deck your halls or house with lights, garlands, wreaths and holly 🙂

Decorating for Christmas doesn’t need to break the bank so we’ve put together a list of DIY Christmas Decs.


Lights are essential for giving any room a Christmassy feel! To add a little sparkle, buy a lantern and fill it with glittery baubles and warm white fairy light. Easy!



If you prefer bright and bold colours for Christmas then try out Tara Dennis’s DIY pom-pom garland. All you need is colourful wool, a fork and some scissors!


Do something a little different with your wreath this year…make it edible! Christmas and candy go hand in hand – so visit your nearest shop* (you’ll get 10% off at your local Co-op with NUS extra!) buy lots of candy canes and a flat ornament. You’ll then just need a glue gun to stick it all together.

*Stock lists vary by store, please check with your local Co-op


Go big with your boughs of holly this year using green card and red balloons! These holly balloon sticks make great props for insta pics or stand them in a vase to make a fun table centrepiece.
