Paint it to match your decor and you’ve got a great Christmas decoration for just a few hours worth of work. These are also a great farmhouse style if you’ve got the right paint colors.

Here’s another easy and inexpensive project that you can complete in a few hours. The best part is by choosing your own colors for the wreath you can mix and match for any decor.

DIY Snowflake Votive

These are great for your table or to wrap up and give as small gifts. You can use a stencil or free form draw on the votive holders. I also love the idea of placing one on each plate for our guests so that they can take it home for a party favor when they leave!
Christmas Apothecary Jars

These are made using candlesticks and glass jars that you can find at the dollar store. Glue, paint and imagination makes a great holiday centerpiece and you can fill them with ornaments, candy canes or mints to make a statement wherever you place them. This is another project on our “to try” list because we’d love to see them in different holiday paint colors.
Christmas Art Wall Hanging

This is an ingenious way to make seasonal art using gift bags and frames. You could also use wrapping paper or recycle your old gift bags. All it takes are some frames and some pictures. Creative cutting makes a great wall hanging that you can change from year to year or as your style or colors change.
Easy Shiplap Ornaments
Tutorial can be found at: DIY Beautify
These great shiplap ornaments started off as brightly colored ornaments. With just a bit of paint they were transformed to fit in with farmhouse decor. At just $1 each, you can’t beat them. With a bit of imagination you can transform these into so many different styles. These would also make great gifts.
Coffee Filter Wreath
Tutorial at DIY Beautify
Here’s a beautiful wreath made completely from coffee filters. You know you can get a bunch of them at the dollar store and you can even pick up a wreath form while you’re there. Add some glue and you’ve got yourself a breathtaking door hanging. I can’t believe how full and pretty this is when it’s finished. It takes a little time to put it together but it’s definitely beautiful when it’s all finished.
Candy Cane Wreath
Tutorial at: At the Picket Fence
We’ve seen lots of tutorials using real candy canes and it’s not something we’ve ever wanted to try. We were really glad to see this one that uses the slimmer plastic candy canes from the dollar store. This is a different pattern than most of the others that we’ve seen and we definitely love the look! For just a few dollars you can create this brightly colored candy cane wreath for your front door.
