Now that Halloween is over, we see our neighbors slowly putting away their spooky yard decorations. I’m definitely going to miss the festivity and fun LED lights outside people’s homes. But guess what? Christmas is less than two months away and it’s never too early to start planning your holiday decorations right?
Before you run out and spend a ton of money on Christmas decorations, here are some ideas that will inspire you to make your own with a fraction of the cost.

How cute is this log reindeer? Make sure you complete the reindeer with a red nose to make it a Rudolph.
Here is another brilliant idea using logs. Cut logs to desired length and slice one end at a diagonal. Then simply paint and decorate them to resemble Santa Clause.
Christmas Light Balls
Create your own winter wonderland with these LED light balls. I love how you can make them in different sizes and colors.
Pallet Christmas Tree
Do you have leftover pallets anywhere in your home? Why not use it to make a cute pallet Christmas tree? Don’t forget to hang some ornaments and a star to make it more festive.
These nutcrackers are definitely not your typical DIY decoration and require more effort. But the result is TOTALLY worth it!
