Homemade Christmas Decorations
We always try and make at least one batch of homemade Christmas decorations each year, because there’s something super lovely about creating something that gets used year after year.
It’s kind of like creating family heirlooms to treasure Christmas after Christmas!
We’ve built up quite a collection of homemade decorations over the years and I’m always on the look out for inspiration for the next batch.
I’ve done my annual online trawl and put together a list of the most inspiring – some are more kiddo friendly than others to make, but there’s hopefully something in here for everyone.
Washi tape decorations are always a winner to make with children, so look out for the Washi Tape trees by I Heart Naptime. Meanwhile I’m a massive fan of bookpage Christmas ornaments, so take a peak at the beautiful creations of Crafted Sparrow.
So what are you waiting for? Have a peak and get making!!

Well hopefully this curation has given you plenty of inspiration for making your own homemade Christmas decorations… it really is a lovely project to do with the kids or to set them to do. My mum still has the decorations I made as a child. I’d love to say the are great works of art, they aren’t. But they are much treasured memories.
