Super Simple Holiday Decor To Make In 30 Minutes (Or Much Much Less)

December is flying by and I, for one, still don’t have my apartment fully decked out with boughs of holly. I am running out of time! Luckily, the DIY bloggers of the world are never short on inspiration and have a myriad of quick project ideas for us to steal.

Just look at The Merrythought’s light garland! I love the idea of combining the usual garland pieces with string lights so you’re not left trying to remake a garland each year.

The message board trend isn’t going anywhere, and The Beauty Dojo’s Holiday twist is so much easier than its DIY felt board counterparts. I’m planning on using mine as a Christmas advent calendar countdown.

Marlene gets 2 DIYs done in under 30 minutes! Her minimalist, contact paper tree is the perfect vignette for an air plant garland. It’s so cute, I don’t know if I’d ever take them down!

Turn last month’s DIY blanket ladder into an entryway card display! Jennaea tied twine down one leg and just clipped cards on with clothespins. You know friends and family spent hours picking out the perfect card, so give them the home they deserve.

Introduce new colors and texture to your tree (or gift toppers!) with Burkatron’s foliage baubles. Fill clear bulbs up with foraged finds or make tiny snow globes! Also lead image above.

Cookie cutters get a second use with these terracotta reindeer. They’re the missing piece to your Christmas village, and the longest part is baking!

Sugar and Charm’s snowflake coasters are nothing short of charming. This would be a fun one to involve the kids, or have on hand for a hot chocolate bar!

I didn’t realize how hard it was to find a modern tree topper. So instead of crawling the mall, Jojotastic’s easy calf hair tree topper will top off our tree trimming this year and every year to come.

Stockings might be the simplest sewing project: they only really require one type of stitch. Paper & Stitch up-cycles adorable tea towels, but you can use her tutorial for any kind of custom stocking.

Make your own high impact wall art with black canvas and a few paint pens like Si. The loose style of the tree looks so good as a hanging piece! With all my saved time, I’d even try to make the hanging frame.
