by Tara Woodbury on January 06, 2017
Now that the winter holidays are over, it doesn’t mean you can’t deck the halls (and the mantle and the walls….). If you’ve taken down the tree and the lights and are left feeling a little uninspired, here are five simple DIY décor ideas for your home after the holidays.
1. Use Your Lights
When the tree is down and you take the lights off the front bushes, you can use your string lights to make a fun garland for your mantle or headboard by following the easy DIY instructions from Amanda at Wit and Whistle or cupcake flower lights from Steph at Oh Happy Day.
2. DIY Pelmet Box
You can make over any window in minutes with this DIY Pelmet Box idea from Little Green Notebook. This is especially good if you can’t or don’t want to hang blind or long panels. What an easy change you can make today with just some fabric, foam core board, batting, Fabri-tac and hardware.
3. DIY Fabric Headboard
Make a Retro Fabric DIY Headboard with these step by step instructions from Briana at Kindle Your Creativity. You can go as wild or as tame as you want with your fabric choice.
4. Wine Cork Trivet
Did you and your guests indulge in some adult beverages? Hey, we’re not judging! If you have a lot of wine bottles and corks in your recycling bin, check out this idea for a Wine Cork Trivet from Ehow.com.
5. Winter Door Decor
Using some of her existing Christmas decorations, Dinah at DIY Inspired created this hanging basket with a burlap ribbon. You could create something similar with any flowers or floral picks, garland and ribbon you have left over.
