It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… is how the song goes, but not if you don’t have any DIY Christmas Décor up! It’s time to trim the tree, and spike the eggnog (well, after fighting traffic all day that is), and start wrapping those presents! We’re presenting some ideas from Etsy today (because our Admin. Assistant got lost somewhere in Etsy – so let us know if you find her). In the meantime, check out some of these terrific Christmas Décor and Gift ideas as inspiration. If you’re running out of time this year, then follow the links to the individual Etsy shops we’ve included.
Christmas Décor can be simple - and practical:
Rustique Signs makes these brilliant, double-sided rustic signs. You could even have some fun with a “GO AWAY” sign when the in-laws are due to arrive. (Just kidding – we <3 our in-laws!).
Your Holiday Decor can be bright and festive:
Lower Ark Crafts makes these adorable gift-box signs for your yard or indoor decorating ideas. Perhaps if you used this as inspiration, you could have the kids or grandkids do the decorating!
Christmas Décor can be large and in charge:
Three Leafs Woodworks helps you let the neighborhood know that you’re excited about the holidays with this cheery snowman yard sign. Can you feel the chill in the air?
But maybe you'd rather be laid back:
Brennans Wood Works Makes a snowman fit for a West-Coast beach as Mr. Snowman rocks a pair of shades and a jaunty hat. The beautiful tree keeps him cool in the shade.
...And it can be rustic too:
PalletArt4U Makes snowy tree signs for your porch as well as cute little snowmen for your mantle. Snowball fight, anyone?
Holiday Décor can be naughty and playful:
FreeWoodPL makes a variety of laser-cut ornaments – this group is in the shape of a clowder of cats, romping around (and in) a holiday tree. Sounds familiar to those cat owners out there, I bet. Imagine if you got these – the kids or grandkids could paint them like your pets!
Christmas Décor can be charming:
FreeWoodPL makes these amazing laser-cut candle holders. Can you imagine the shadows this would cast?
Let the world know how you’re feeling:
KSCraftCreations has this adorable Grinch-themed set of wooden cutouts. Perfect for when you’re feeling a little Bah-Humbug!
Holiday Decor can be a terrific gift to give:
DownHomeMarket makes these rustic snowflakes in beautiful blue tones that get you to want to grab a blanket and hot chocolate – topped with tiny marshmallows, of course.
But did you think about your decor as being multi-purpose?
LiElasNaturals makes these beautiful reclaimed wood stars – these could be used for several holidays. Just add some ribbons, or wrap them in lights, and anything else you can think of! They also had a set of cute little reclaimed-woo trees. Talk about festive!
Christmas Décor can be stacked in our favor:
NorthernOaksDecorCo stacks scrap wood into rustic little-framed artwork. Great for you, or amazing as a host or hostess gift! That’s stacking the odds in your favor!
Holiday Décor can be helpful:
FernwehReclaimedWood makes gorgeous upcycled lap trays. Perfect to treat someone to breakfast in bed!
Décor that can help you get your geek on:
OhDierLiving makes these fantastic, super-nerdy block toys that would be the envy of geeks anywhere.
Décor can be thirst-quenching:
RockySpringsVintage has an always-welcome gift idea with a wine or beer tote. Be the life of the party and bring it already stocked up.
Your Décor can light up the night:
WoodlandEdges Has charming rustic wall sconces that would add a warmth to any house.
Christmas Décor can put a spring in your step:
GFTWoodcraft If it’s got sproingy things poking out of it, this Admin. Assistant is lovin’ it. Plus… it’s got GOOGLY EYES! What’s NOT to love about this silly and adorable set of Reindeer?
Try and top this one:
Christmas Décor with bright ideas:
OldYellersFarmShoppe makes reindeer that would even be fabulous holiday night lights to gently illuminate a room for guests while making the house feel cheery and in the holiday mood!
Woodland Holiday Décor – Oh DEER:
This time it's polite to point:

A rustic manger:
