Seasonal DIY Ideas

The Home Depot is your destination for everything Christmas, including holiday lights, Christmas trees, decorations, inflatables, centerpieces, ornaments, wreaths and more. If you find you’re in need of some fresh ideas to replace ho-hum holiday décor this year, we’ve got you covered! 

When it comes to creating holiday cheer, the Christmas tree is always the center of attention. Whether you display an artificial pre-lit Christmas tree or bring home a real tree from The Home Depot’s Christmas tree shop, learn How to Set Up a Live Christmas Tree and How to Decorate a Christmas Tree with our DIY Christmas guides.

Garland makes a great statement lining your doorways, around your tree or as a festive addition to your mantel. For an even more personalized touch, create a DIY Christmas Wreath or a DIY Christmas Wreath Centerpiece to impress your holiday dinner guests.

Christmas crafts are a snap with our DIY project guides. Create your own Christmas ornaments and show them off with our Unique Ways to Decorate With Ornaments guide. Or make a Star Christmas Card Holder or Christmas Advent Calendar and add some joy to your holiday festivities this year.

For outdoor decorations, upgrade your incandescent Christmas lights to new LED lights to help conserve energy and save on your electric bill. Be the brightest yard on the block when you add a lighted holiday inflatable or Star Shower Laser Light Projector to your Christmas decorations. Set up a Santa and his reindeer display and place them next to your custom-made yard decor with the help of our How to Build Christmas Tree Yard Décor guide.

Create a Merry Christmas with homemade holiday decorations that will be cherished for years to come! Our seasonal how-to guides will show you step-by-step how it’s done.
