For me, one of the most beautiful things about Christmas is doing it yourself! I not only find Christmas decorations, homemade Christmas gifts and gifts from the kitchen very personal, but also find the time I take for them incredibly relaxing and – even if it sounds cheesy – contemplative. This year I would like to make a lot of beautiful things in a boho look myself (I hope you like tassels: P). It starts with this boho decoration to hang up, which can actually be left hanging all year round, right?
Every year before Christmas I think about what “my Christmas colors” are. Mustard yellow has been part of it for years because I like the earthy warmth so much. This year I’m thinking of mixing mustard yellow with gold and a berry shade – how do you like the combination?
DIY Christmas decorations in a boho look
The boho Christmas decoration is quick and easy and you can use up super wool scraps for it. For the moon I used aluminum wire (I only had very thick ones at home), which can be bent very well. But you can also use normal wire.
- Aluminum wire or normal wire
- Macrame thread or wool to wrap around
- Embroidery floss or wool for the tassels
- Additional decorations such as bells on request
- double-sided tape
- (possibly hot glue)
How to do it:
Brings the wire into the desired shape. I bent the moon out of my hand, I bent the star along a star template. If you are using normal wire I would recommend tracing the motif several times with wire to make it a little more stable.
Glue the wire together with double-sided tape. At this point you can glue on the macrame thread or wool and begin to wrap the wire tightly with it. Finally, you can attach a piece of double-sided tape and attach the last piece of yarn to it. If that doesn’t work, you can glue it on with a drop of hot glue.
Then it’s time to decorate. I have explained here how to tie tassels out of wool or yarn. You can also attach bells, bobbles, wooden beads or whatever you like.
I’m curious how you like my boho-look decoration, which doesn’t look so typical for Christmas :).
