Get festively creative with some off the wall Christmas DIY ideas
For anyone who loves the festive season (we’re huge fans), December is the month for going the extra mile. It’s also the most wonderful time of the year to get creative by adding a unique, personal touch to your Christmas décor, gifts, and your table settings for that all-important Christmas Day lunch.
Here are some very merry (and hassle-free) DIY ideas to get you into the spirit…
A little extra wallpaper can be unrolled for a one-of-a-kind table runner. The best part is you won’t have to worry about those inevitable spills and stains; after lunch just wipe down and save the runner for your next party or recycle it.
Placemats and matching serviette holders
Cut matching placemats from wallpaper for indoor or outdoor dining. Be the host with the most by cutting thin strips of wallpaper and gluing the ends together to make matching serviette holders.
Add a little flair to your Christmas party by making shabby chic disposable coaters. Cut to size and personalise them so guests can easily identify their drink.
Make this festive season even greener by using scrap wallpaper as wrapping paper. Not only will you be saving money and doing your bit for the environment, your gifts will look classic and comment-worthy.
Gift tags and gift card holders
Simply cut small squares from wallpaper rolls and you have a stack of nifty gift tags. Use larger pieces to create gorgeous gift card holders.
Few things are more thoughtful at this special time of year than a personalised, handcrafted gift. Wallpaper covers notebooks, journals and diaries beautifully and are the perfect stocking filler too.
