Christmas DIY decorations

So ya’ll know how stores like to act like we’re gonna pay full price for these Christmas decorations during the holiday season? Like they aren’t half off right after Christmas? Yea well if you love your pockets like I do, you’ve gotten the hang of some DIY projects by now. I haven’t bought an actual centerpiece for my dining room table or a wreath for my front door in I don’t how long.

The key to most DIY projects is a glue gun and honestly a lot of household items. There’s so many ways you can spice up a mason jar, it’s not even funny. So i’m going to drop some inexpensive ways to get your home looking festive asf! Most of these pictures will be from Pinterest but hopefeully next year i’ll be in the comfort of my own home and I can give y’all some personalized action. For now though, good ideas are good ideas.

MASON JAR LOVE
Okay so straight out the gate i’m hitting y’all over the head with the ever so timeless mason jar project. You can use them as a candle holder, or just a decorative piece depending on where you place them. This can be part of a center piece or just a nice accent to have in your living room. Whatever it is that you’re trying to do, some paint, ribbons, and some your own little twist can get your right.

CENTERPIECE GANG
Let’s be real. Christmas just doesn’t feel right without a dope center piece at your dining room table. I feel like my centerpiece always shows my progression in life and maybe that’s extreme but i’m not sorry about it either. There’s so many ways you can go with this but let’s just cover the basics.

ALL ABOUT THE WREATH
The amount of effort you put into your wreath tells me who you are as a person. If I see some pitiful sad excuse for what is supposed to be a wreath on your door, i’m judging you. I need, ribbons, pinecones, maybe even some poinsettias peeking back at me. This doesn’t mean you have to go in Michael’s and buy a $60 wreath because YOU are a creative genius and you can do it yourself. My go to is the wire hanger method but feel free to do you boo! If you know your way around burlap bows, I applaud you. Here’s some cute wreaths that deserve respect.

Here are a couple more ideas that are simple but cute.

The Holidays really are what you make it and with gift buying and high electricity/gas bills, aint nobody got time to be breaking the bank for some decorations. If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Michaels or any craft store I’m gonna need you to do that. Hopefully you were able to pick up some good tips here. As always, I’m here for any ideas you wish to share so drop em below. Thank you for reading!!

Welcome to Lo Key. This is a platform where I want to speak on relatable topics and share steps on how to approach them in the most realistic way possible. As I've been through tough times in my life, there was always somebody out there on the internet that could relate and made me feel 1000x's better when nobody else was around. That is what I want to do here. Whether it's the comfort of knowing somebody else has been through this or maybe you're not sure what the best route to take is, I want to reassure you that you aren't alone in this life. I do not have everything all figured out but I will share what works and has worked for me and maybe it can work for you too. I'm Lo and these are my keys.
