5 Outdoor Christmas Decorations that You Can DIY

One of the things I love about DIY projects is that you can literally make anything.

If you can’t find the style you like, you make your own.

If you can’t afford the real deal, you make your own.

Outdoor yard decorations can be sooo expensive, but you don’t need to worry about that any longer. Just make your own!

Rather than spending the money to adorn your front yard, you can use materials you already have to DIY your own outdoor Christmas decorations.

5 Outdoor DIYs that You can Make

Today, I’m sharing 5 DIY wooden yard decorations that you can easily make to decorate your outdoors for the upcoming holidays.

From repurposing old materials to using scrap wood out to 30 minute or less projects, these 5 outdoor DIYs have something for everyone.

Wooden Christmas Trees

These outdoor wooden Christmas trees from Megan at Two Feet First are adorable! She made them with cedar fence pickets – and even has a creative way to light them up. I love how the lights make the trees look decorated, and they fit perfectly into a porch planter box.

Her tutorial is super easy-to-follow and will have you making them in no time. If you’ve been wanting to make a cool holiday yard decoration, this is definitely a fun one to make.

Lighted Reindeer and Santa Sleigh

This reindeer and Santa sleigh turned out so cute! The whole thing is made from plywood and a couple strings of lights.

The full tutorial will show you exactly how to make your own Santa sleigh decoration – it even shows how to suspend it in the air using your front porch.

If you have been wanting reindeer and a sleigh for your yard but don’t want to spend the money, this is the perfect holiday yard decoration on a budget. It was made for less than $20.

And, if you already have the plywood, then all you’ll need are the lights.

Snowflakes from Stair Spindles

How cute are these DIY porch snowflakes from Amy at 1905 Farmhouse?!

She made these from stair spindles, and they turned out amazing. I love creative DIYs that are made from something other than their intended purpose.

I love the colors Amy chose too! You can check out how to make these along with her holiday porch decor.

DIY Snowman

This adorable wooden snowman is from Thea at That Sweet Tea Life. She turned a wooden board into this beautiful snowman.

She gives the best painting tips, so I’m sure that you’ll be recreating this in no time.

Holiday JOY Sign

I am loving this holiday Joy sign from Patti at Renovating Mapleson Manor. She made it with two metal letters and bent a cottonwood stem to make the O. Sooo creative! I love her simple, elegant style.

So there you have it, 5 outdoor decorations that you can make this holiday season. They are perfect for decorating on a tight budget, can reuse old or scrap materials, and can be made quickly.

When you are planning your outdoor holiday decor, be sure to keep this awesome Christmas DIYs in mind.
