MONTHLY HOLIDAY DIY DECORATIONS
Pom Pom Garland (January)
This do-it-yourself project is perfect for winter decorations and it works great for many other holidays too.
Doily Heart Garland (February)
This heart garland takes no time to make and it looks adorable paired with the pom pom garland. Hang it on your hutch, mantel, mirror, or anywhere in your home.
Indoor Herb Garden Planter (March)
As the temperatures warm up it is a great time to do some planting. Why not craft this planter for a precious herb garden. Here are the supplies you will need.
The galvanized planter came from Dollar Tree. Tap flower planter or you can check your local store.
DIY Farmhouse Flower Vase (April)
This is one of our more challenging projects to make, but if you don't want to make the frame, then grab these adorable apple juice jars and make an arrangement for the spring.
To purchase the Martinelli glass jars, check your local Whole Foods or tape Martinelli apple juice jars to purchase online.
If you are considering purchasing a brad nailer instead of the hammer and finish nails, here is the one I use. I have been surprised at how many projects I could use this nailer.
Mother's Day Printable (May)
A great gift idea for mom or to make for your home decor to celebrate Mother's day.
The precious frames came from Dollar Tree. Tap gold floating frames to purchase a set for your project or check your local store.
Antique Glass Bird Bath (June)
Our birdbath is made from vintage finds, but you can also shop online or in stores. Here are the items you will need except platters, vases, or candle holders.
President's Silhouette (July)
Silhouettes are so fun to decorate within your home. So why not have Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln as your patriotic decor? Here are the supplies needed for this do-it-yourself summer project.
Now you need the silhouettes to cut out. To get access to my free resources simply tap president silhouettes and then go to the summer section under American patriotic presidents.
Dried Orange Slices (August)
There are so many different ways you can decorate your home for summer with dried orange slices. This DIY is great for other holidays too especially Christmas. So after the summer is over save your orange slices in a ziplock bag and store them in a dry cool space.
If you want your orange slices to come out a bright orange color, use a dehydrator. I have a dehydrator listed above. If you plan to use your oven, leave the dehydrator off your shopping list. The oven makes a beautiful amber color orange.
Wheat Wreath (September)
Another fun project to make, and it looks great hanging on your front door as well as inside your home.
I bought the dried wheat online. Tap dried wheat stalks to purchase some for your fall wreath.
Halloween Golden Jack-o'-Lanterns (October)
This Jack family will bring you so much joy during the month of October. They glow beautifully at night and make your home feel happy and warm. Here is what you need to shop for the lantern faces.
The largest Jack-o-lantern I purchased at Pottery Barn online. To shop tap metal Jack-o-lanterns.
Fall Paper Leaf Garland (November)
You can decorate with this autumn paper leaf garland in so many ways. Here are the supplies needed to do this project.
The berry garland I used in this DIY came from Dollar Tree. Simply tap fall berry garland to purchase online. And the lighter tan paper came from there too. Tap a roll of shipping paper to purchase.
Now all you need is the paper leaf template. Simply subscribe to Life on Summerhill to have access to all my freebies. This template is under the fall section.
Gnome Garland (December)
Add a touch of whimsey to your holiday decor with these adorable gnomes. Here is what you will need to make this decoration.
The book I used for the DIY is a small college handbook. Tap the hardback college handbook to find this book for the project or for good reading material. LOL!
