Quick and Easy DIY Holiday Decor

This DIY is by far the easiest and quickest DIY EVER! So I had tile laying around. I mean who doesn’t (sarcasm). I wasn’t sure what to do with it, but I didn’t want to throw it away. I also don’t have a lot of money to spend on decor when I need to go Christmas shopping so I searched around for what I could use.

If I was an amazing artist I could have painted on the traditional snowflakes or Christmas tree. That’s not the case so I thought I could paint them Christmas colors and display them that way. I then realized that I didn’t have any of those colors available. All I had were pastels from a previous project. I did however have mod podge and scrapbook paper.

So, enough rambling, here’s what you’ll need for this DIY:

  • tile
  • holiday scrapbook paper (wrapping paper would work as well)
  • mod podge (or glue)
  • sponge brush (or a regular sponge)
  • exacto knife

I ended up picking out scrapbook paper I had purchased in a pack for $2.99 from AC Moore. I simply lined it up on the tile and voila.ย I took it a step further by putting another sheet of scrapbook paper on the back. I plan on displaying these in my office (Holiday office decor post to come) and I can flip them after Christmas to fit for winter. To seal everything in you could go over the top with mod podge (matte/glossy) or if you can spray it with a sealer.ย Prior to applying whatever paper you decide to use you can paint the sides.

The great part about this DIY is that it clearly does not have to be for the holidays. You can print out quotes or even paint the tile with chalkboard paint and change up what you want it to say whenever you want. If you’re using thin paper such as the wrapping paper you could put layers upon layers to change up the look.

If you don’t have tile, no worries. You can easily purchase foam board at the Dollar Tree for, you guessed it, $1. Cut to whatever size you like. Glue on the scrapbook paper OR wrapping paper. Have fun. Make a mural out of it by mix & matching different designs. Super easy and affordable.
