1. Cinnamon candle jars

They are elegant, they smell good and they are made in a few minutes. With cinnamon sticks stuck together around large candles, we build christmas candle jars which spread a festive scent throughout the house, in addition to decorating the table or buffet nicely. The secret ? We finish by sticking a lace ribbon, a few star anise or pine cones.

2. A masking tape tree

An empty white wall that doesn't really sing Christmas? We release the masking tape. We quickly trace the shape in pencil on the wall or we project it with a video projector, then we stick the masking tape until we draw a Christmas tree graphic. Cut-out post-it notes or paper with repositionable tape is enough to simulate the balls. Black and kraft for design, red and green for tradition, everyone has their own tree!

3. A candlestick in balls

If the centerpiece is missing a few hours before the Christmas meal, do not panic, we have the solution. We get a big candle, every Christmas' balls lying miniatures and a gun or tube of glue. We surround the base of the candle with a strip of paper taped, then we stick the balls in alternating sizes and colors until a pretty cluster. Guaranteed festive effect!

4. Scented candle holders

To give the christmas decor a retro style while divinely perfuming the atmosphere, orange reigns supreme. Our grandmothers already used the trick, why not us? We provide a tealight candle with citrus fruit, we place it on top of the fruit and then draw the circle with a marker. It only remains to cut with a knife before driving in the candle. And if we have cloves, we take the opportunity to draw patterns that once the candle is lit, will smell good for the holiday season!

5. Painted pine cones

Difficult to find simpler for finalize a Christmas decor. We pick up pine cones in the woods or recover those of the past year, with a spray of paint, they transform into ultra-chic decorative objects! Pine cones golden for elegance, red for tradition, white for a Scandinavian Christmas or black for the modern side, we sow them in the decor, we stick them on the crowns and we stack them in bowls.

6. Bright place cards

A simple, inexpensive and DIY idea to define the table plan? We place a base of salt or sugar in jars of recuperated yogurt to simulate snow, we place a tealight candle there and then we tie a string with a label around the neck. The result is already stunning, we let you imagine the effect of place cards on the christmas table once the candles are lit.

7. A decorative jar

Same principle for the XXL version, or almost. In a glass jar, a background of sugar imitates snow, a small plastic tree or a miniature Santa Claus provide the decor and a LED light garland takes care of the stars. Here's one christmas decor which changes the whole atmosphere in a few minutes, placed on the dining table or on a shelf!

8. Christmas balls in wire and cardboard

The fir tree looks gray? Does the chandelier lack decoration? We make Christmas decorations express in DIY with a few cardboard circles and a ball of yarn. Just cut the edges of the circle on 1 cm every few centimeters, then pass the threads from bottom to top, then passing to the next notch. The extra thing? We mix the colors and add a pearl before knotting the threads to form the hanging loop.

9. Snowman Glasses

No need to look very far to transform aperitif verrines, children's glasses or decorative bowls. To give them christmas spirit, we cut stickers, scotch tape or simply paper to stick on the glasses: two black circles for the eyes, an orange comma for the nose, five black marbles for the mouth, hello the snowman. The right idea? We fill the containers with white, whether candy, pompoms, painted pine cones or eggnog!

10. Bowls of balls

A simple idea to realize in a few minutes for the christmas table ? A large transparent glass or champagne bucket filled with mixed balls. It shines, it's beautiful, and you can even slide a light garland in the middle to boost the magic effect.
