If you follow me on Instagram or Pinterest you’ll know that I just adore scandinavian style! This year I’ve made DIY christmas decorations with a scandi twist! Scandi Christmas decorations are all about stripped back styling with natural wood, minimalist colours and a rustic feel.
Below you’ll find three different scandinavian inspired DIY Christmas decoration tutorials. They’re all inexpensive and easy to follow but look great! They’re nice and quick and are great for kids to get involved with too!
Painted Wooden Christmas Baubles
- 2cm Wooden beads
- White acrylic paint
- 2 Paint brushes
- Masking tape/washi tape
- Cocktail sticks
1. Put the bead on the end of one of the paintbrushes and then use the tape to mask off your desired pattern.
2. Paint the unmasked sections of the bead with a thin coat of acrylic paint.
3. Transfer onto the cocktail stick and place on the mouth of a glass or cup to dry.
4. Once all your beads are dry, cut 20cm lengths of string for your baubles.
5. Fold in half and knot one end.
6. Thread two of the beads onto the string.
7. Hang on your Christmas tree!
DIY Christmas Star Ornaments
- Modelling Clay
- Silicone star mould
- Blunt knife for scraping
- Cocktail sticks
1. Take a chunk of clay and press into the mould making sure that all the crevices are filled.
2. Scrape off the excess with the knife, try to make sure that no clay is overhanging the edges of the shape and you have smoothed the back of the star as much as you can. It doesn’t need to be perfect because you can sand it down later.
3. Use a cocktail stick to make a hole in one point of the star in order to hang it later.
3. Leave to dry for a little while and then carefully turn out to fully dry so you can reuse the mould.
4. Once fully dry, cut a 20cm length of string and thread through the hole in the star.
5. Tie in a knot, trim the ends and then hang from the tree!
Personalised DIY Christmas Bauble Decorations
- Letter beads
1. Cut a 30cm length of string, fold in half and knot one end. Trim the ends if desired.
2. Thread the beads onto the string in reverse order of your word
3. You’re done – hang it on the tree!
