If you’re looking for some Christmas inspiration, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve got more than 50 of the best DIY Christmas ideas from bloggers across the country.
From DIY ornaments to Christmas home decor, and DIY Christmas games to the best recipes, there’s a little bit of everything. So you’re sure to find a few holiday projects you love.
A few years ago, Shirley from Intelligent Domestications took on the challenge of organizing a Christmas blog hop. Over 50 bloggers posted DIY Christmas ideas for 12 days with her 4th Annual 12 Days of Christmas event.
That’s a lot of Christmas inspiration in a short period of time!
Each day had its own Christmas theme, starting with this huge list of DIY Christmas ideas.
(If you’re interested, you can find links to all the rest of the days at the bottom of the page.)
