10 DIY Holiday Decor Ideas to Deck the WALLS

If you are like me, your mind is already thinking of ways to deck the halls for the holidays. We plan out our trees, our tabletops, entry ways, and mantels. Another spot in our home to think about are the walls. Wreaths are a great go-to, but sometimes you want something a little different. Today, I am sharing 10 easy DIY projects to dress up your walls this holiday season and not break the bank.

10 Holiday Ideas


DIY Glitter Reindeer Art

Bliss at Home

This was by far the most popular holiday post I did last year. I still love it for Holiday 2013 since gold is emerging as a front-runner for holiday decor.


DIY Sparkly Ornament Sign

House by Hoff

I just love this ornament sign April from House by Hoff made. The ornament silhouettes and arrangement make a pleasing display.


IKEA Margareta Christmas


Cuckoo 4 Design

This is so clever what Julia from Cuckoo 4 Design did with this IKEA Margareta fabric. The ornaments hung on it are the perfect touch.


DIY Christmas Canvas Art


View Along the Way

Kelly from View Along the Way used items you can find at any craft store to make this DIY chipboard letter art. Such a great idea and you could customize it to your own message.


DIY Holiday Paper Art

Newly Woodwards

I love it when I see ideas inspired from catalogs. Kim from Newly Woodwards did a Ballard Designs knock-off of their holiday decor.  Scrapbook paper cut out in holiday shapes and placed in frames. Super inexpensive but makes such a nice display!


DIY Vintage-Inspired Holiday Art

Primitive & Proper

Cassie from Primitive & Proper added a vintage touch to her decor with these DIY Holiday Plaques. Using a vintage Santa book she took the pages and added them to these plaques. I just love them! So charming!!


DIY Instagram Wall Art

Wills Casa

I love what Amber and Nick from Wills Casa did with their Instagram photos for Thanksgiving. I could see this done for the holidays saying “BE MERRY”. They made a letter grid using Instagram photos they printed in a template in Photoshop. So creative and a great way to showcase those memories.


DIY Noel Sign

Newly Woodwards

Kim also made this Noel sign for her front door. I love this! I could definitely see this on a mantel for the holidays.


DIY Greenery Star


Shift Ctrl Art

Katja from Shift Ctrl Art made a festive vignette using greenery from her yard. This is so simple and easy and it makes such a nice touch. I love it in this arrangement with the art on the wall.


DIY Snowflake Art


Bliss at Home

If you want something really quick and easy, you can always frame snowflake ornaments like I did here. These are just inexpensive ornaments popped in frames with scrapbook paper and fabric for backgrounds.
