DIY Holiday Decor Inspiration


The holiday season is here and it’s time to start thinking about decorating my home! I have begun with a few little things here using my favorite DIY Holiday Decor and items I picked up from Oriental Trading.

I like to make everything my own and that includes cute things I pick up online. I recently got a few items from Oriental Trading and decided to put my own DIY Holiday Decor spin on them to make them more festive.

I picked up this white candle holder set and used a few dollar store items to add a pop of color for the holidays.

I found a few pillar candles, red sticker ribbon, and poinsettia flowers which I put to good use to make the white candle holders more festive for the holidays.

I wrapped the candle holders with the red ribbon tape to create a candy cane type of look around the base. I love that the ribbon was already sticky so I didn’t have to mess around with glue guns or tape to try to make it stick.

I then popped the flowers off of the stems and places it inside where the pillar candle will sit. You can use a piece of tape to secure it if your candles are not heavy enough to make it stay down.

I then added the candles and placed them in a highly visible area in my living room and I think it really makes that area more bright and cheery. I added a few of the Antler Table Tossers I picked up from Oriental Trading, as well.

When I guests over I like to serve cupcakes and cookies but setting out a bunch of platters has never really been my thing. That requires a lot of room on the counter but this 3 Tier serving tray from Oriental Trading allows me to serve a variety of snacks and save space at the same time.

One of my favorite things I picked up was this set of throw pillows that read warm and cozy. I feel like it makes the seating area more inviting.
