There is still time to whip up some great decorations to get your house in the spirit of the holidays. You can make this craft paper “Be Merry” wall art fairly easily and for pretty cheap! Just cut out holly berries and leaves from green and red paper and adhere to a feature wall in your home. You can find stencils here and use Zots to stick them up and remove easily!


Try this DIY on your stairs to add a whimsical holiday twist to your decor. You can buy temporary adhesive letters at Target and spell out each reindeer’s name on every other step. And you can even switch the lettering to red when you get to Rudolph’s name!
