29 Easy Dollar Tree DIY Christmas Decor Ideas

Have you been looking for some Christmas DIY inspiration?? It’s that time of year, and I can’t lie, my house is already decorated! I’ve shared so many easy Christmas DIY craft projects over on my Facebook page, and I am working hard on getting all of them here on the blog. I wanted to go ahead and share with you my favorite 29 Easy DIY Christmas Decor Ideas that I’ve made! 

Each Christmas DIY idea on this list has its own blog post with a supply list, step-by-step instructions, and a tutorial video! 

Let’s get to the good stuff!

1. Pizza Pan Christmas Decor Dollar Tree DIY

First up is this adorable Dollar Tree pizza pan DIY! I used a Dollar Tree Simply Blessed 2021 Calendar and decoupaged one of the calendar prints onto the front of a Dollar Tree pizza pan.

Add some half wood beads and a super cute ribbon x bow, and you’re ready for the holidays! 

I actually made this project before with a different Dollar Tree calendar print, but it was so cute that I just had to make it again! (Check out number 26!)

2. Christmas Salt and Pepper Shaker DIY Ornaments

If you’re looking for a super easy and kid-friendly Christmas DIY, then #2 of my 29 Easy DIY Christmas Decor Ideas is for you!

These adorable salt and pepper shaker Christmas ornaments are so easy to make, that your children or grandchildren could do them!

Just grab some Dollar Tree salt and pepper shakers, mini Christmas Trees, faux snow, some ribbon, and your hot glue gun!

3. Home Depot Floor Sample DIY Christmas Ornaments

Y’all, I got so much feedback when I made these DIY ornaments from Home Depot’s free flooring samples. If you know me, you know that I am always looking for creative ways to repurpose and refurbish unwanted items.

I mean, I owned an entire brick-and-mortar store centered around the idea of taking something old and making it new! That was my thought process with these easy floor sample DIY Christmas ornaments. 

All you need is a free flooring sample from Home Depot, Dollar Tree mophead strings,  baker’s twine, a Dollar Tree Merry Christmas ornament, and some ribbon! 

4. Dollar Tree DIY Red Truck Christmas Decor

Is it okay to admit that I am OBSESSED with red Christmas trucks? I mean, I just absolutely love them! If you’re wanting a DIY craft that has very few steps but is more than just gluing pieces in place, this Christmas Truck DIY Decor is perfect for you! 

With just a few Dollar Tree items and a bit of creativity, you can make this easy DIY hanging Christmas sign!

5. Dollar Tree Candle Holder DIY Snow Globe

I am always trying to think of unique, out-of-the-box DIY ideas, and I think I hit the nail on the head with this Dollar Tree candle holder DIY snow globe! This water-free snowglobe is so easy to make but is so different than my usual DIY crafts.

If you’ve read my blog or see my Facebook videos, you’ll see that I make a lot of hanging signs or surface board designs. 

I really stepped out of my comfort zone to make this winter globe, but boy did it pay off! 

6.  Easy DIY Dollar Tree Cutting Board Christmas Sign

Just like the DIY snowglobe above, I stepped out of my comfort zone with this Dollar Tree cutting board Christmas sign. I’ve used Dollar Tree Tumbling Tower blocks (just like Jenga blocks) before, but I usually stain them brown.

I stepped out on a limb with this Christmas decor and stained the blocks bright red to match the messy bow! 

What do you think? Will you keep the blocks red or decide to stain them brown? 

7. DIY Dollar Tree Mop Head Christmas Tree Sign

Can you guess the hidden item in this Dollar Tree mop head Christmas tree sign? I’ll give you a hint: it came from Dollar Tree! 

This Christmas DIY was so much fun to make, but I wasn’t sure how it would out. Let this DIY project be a reminder not to doubt yourself and just go with your gut because it is so stinking cute!

I honestly love this DIY Christmas sign because of how easy it was to make. It really doesn’t require you to have any special skills or crafting experience! 

8.  How to Decoupage Wood Christmas DIY Decor Ideas

Have I told you how much I love to decoupage?? It might be one of my favorite things to do when I am crafting!

For this super cute Christmas DIY shelf sitter, I decoupaged a napkin onto a Dollar Tree sign box and created a triangle roof out of corrugated cardboard scrapbook paper!

You could easily substitute the corrugated scrapbook with paper and it would still be just as cute! I actually have made several of these DIY Christmas Decor ideas with cardboard, like the ornament just below!  

9. Christmas Ornament DIY with Cardboard

That’s right, this DIY ornament is made of CARDBOARD! Of course, there are other parts to this ornament that came from Dollar Tree. This is another super easy Christmas DIY craft that would be perfect for kids!

With just a little bit of supervision using a hot glue gun and a pair of scissors, your child or grandkids could have so much fun recreating their own cardboard Christmas ornament!

This one is also great for parents and grandparents who collect ornaments. Especially handmade Christmas ornaments. This one makes for great DIY Christmas gifts for all ages to make!

10. Decoupage a Dollar Tree Christmas Gift Bag DIY

Does this look familiar? While this decoupaged Christmas sign may look like the Dollar Tree pizza pan DIY you saw at the top, I actually used a Dollar Tree circle sign for this.

You could very easily recreate this Christmas DIY with a pizza pan, you’ll just have to get creative with attaching the hanger! Talk about DIY Christmas Decorations Dollar Tree style! 

11. Dollar Tree Christmas Decor DIY With Cardboard

Remember how I told you earlier that cardboard can be a great substitute for items you don’t have?

This Dollar Tree Christmas Decor DIY is a prime example of that! I found a super cute wooden Christmas Tree at Target on weekend, and I thought the tree would be so adorable in one of my Christmas crafts. However, I wasn’t sure all of my followers would have the same item. 

That’s when I decided to create a FREE template for the shape of the wooden Christmas Tree and I traced it onto a piece of cardboard. Cut out your shape and it’s like you had the real thing! 

12. $5 Dollar Tree Farmhouse Christmas DIY

Don’t have stockings? You could also put this adorable farmhouse Christmas decor by your front door and hang your keys and masks on it. The possibilities are endless!

14. DIY Christmas Church Shadow Box 

29 Easy DIY Christmas Decor Ideas

This Christmas Church Shadowbox might be one of my top 5 favorites from this holiday season. I just love how the red churches pop in front of the corrugated cardboard scrapbook paper and brown stained Dollar Tree Tumbling Tower Blocks (Jenga blocks). 

I also love how you could stage this Christmas DIY on a shelf or hang it on a wall. 

15. Embroidery Hoop for a Christmas Decor DIY

19. DIY Christmas Tree Shelf Decor

21. Christmas Printable Ornament DIY

24. Foam board Christmas Barn DIY

29 Easy DIY Christmas Decor Ideas

This foam board Christmas barn was inspired by a wood Christmas barn I saw at Hobby Lobby. One of my favorite things to say is, “I can make that!” and that is exactly what happened when I saw the barn at Hobby Lobby.

I brainstormed how I could recreate the wood barn and realized I could create a template and cut it out on foam board! 

You can get the template here.

  1. The first Christmas that we were married I had a lot of time on my hands (I was working on getting my teaching license while nannying during the day) and so I DIY’d almost all of our Christmas decorations. I have not done many since but my favorite item is still our tree skirt I made out of drop cloths and white fabric. It is a little small after all is said and done but I still love it!

  2. Amber, I love your ideas. I don’t get to do too many crafts because I take care of my disabled son full time. 7 days week, 24 hrs. a day. I carry my phone around with me so I can watch you live. Sometimes I have to watch the replays. Love the conversations. I’m the quiet one. Don’t comment too often. When you go days without having an adult conversation it kinda gets to you after a while. Watching you helps me get through my days. Thank you so much. Keep the conversations and crafts going.

  3. Hi Amber
    This is my 1st year for crafting and I just want to THANK YOU for sharing all your creations You are definitely blessed talent.. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Looking forward to spending 2021 crafting with you.

  4. Love Amber that you share so much of your time and little Ms Avery with us. We have a great little crafting family here , its a good thing we can connect like family thru FB, thanks again, Brenny Ebert

    1. Thanks so much Brenny! It really is something I enjoy! I love having a crafty community to share my time and my family with!
