These Everyday Home Items Can Double As Christmas Decor

 

When in search of DIY Christmas decor, we always seem to find ourselves just a little bit short on time. With the holidays close by and budgets that keep getting tighter, it's time to make stellar decorations out of what's already in our homes.

 

It's true -- every Christmas decoration you need is already. in. your. house. Rejoice!

 

We've compiled a Pinterest board of our favorite DIY decoration projects, which use around-the-house standbys from cake stands to serving trays to even your own front door.

 

With a sprinkle of holiday magic, the items you already have can easily double as the only decorations you'll ever need.

SERVING TRAYS: Spruce up your appetizer platter (literally) with festive-looking ferns, glowing candles, branches or glittery accents. The more trinkets, the merrier!SERVING TRAYS: Spruce up your appetizer platter (literally) with festive-looking ferns, glowing candles, branches or glittery accents. The more trinkets, the merrier!


YOUR FRONT DOOR: Turn your regular entryway into one big gift. Wrap it with an oversized bow to welcome guests, or do the same with a living room door to make the Christmas morning reveal more special than ever.YOUR FRONT DOOR: Turn your regular entryway into one big gift.
