Take some old pallet wood and create this delightful DIY Christmas sign. A stencil design for the lettering would be best, but the Christmas tree itself can be done with rough hand strokes of various shades of green.

The last step is to adorn the tree with some buttons and bows.


Bake Up Some Christmas Cookies

Bake Up Some Christmas Cookies

Christmas cookies make for excellent and easy to bake DIY Christmas decor. You can bake them to hang, as shown above, but even a tray of beautifully designed and decorated Christmas cookies creates a festive (and delicious) accent.

Just make sure to bake extras so that you can refill the platter as other people (not you…. never you… you’d NEVER do such a thing!!!!!) sneak a cookie or six from the tray.

Such a cute sign! You might want to use some printable stencil or transfer paper to create the letters and snowflakes, as this would be VERY intricate work to try to freehand.

Perfect for the kitchen, this wonderfully rustic Christmas display uses a vintage kitchen scale with some lovely greenery, a cute reindeer, and some pretty red Christmas dishes that can be used later to serve up some Christmas treats.

Even if you don’t have a vintage scale handy, I love the idea of using a pretty little plate rack to display the Christmas dishes as decor until they are needed.
