We've put together 8 easy ideas for you to do yourself that will make your party pop with festive flair. It's 'anything goes' for these parties, so let your creativity go wild and don't worry about imperfections. Have fun - your guest will LOVE these decorations!!!!
1. DIY Twisty Felt Ornament Decorations
Betz White is a genius for coming up with these easy instructions for making something so beautiful! Make load of these in varying lengths and hang from the rafters (or doorways, tables, or anywhere!)
2. Amazing DIY Christmas Balls Wreath
Thanks to Lindsey at recreated.ca for this amazing DIY glam wreath with ornaments idea! All you need is a foil pizza plate, glue gun and sticks and loads of ornaments. Lindsey's example uses gold with white ornament accents. But this wreath can be made with a variety of color combinations! Get tacky with all red and green ornaments and make one for each window for your ugly Christmas sweater party decorations. Or, if your having a formal party, what about white ornaments with black accents, or maybe pink with turquoise! Have fun, and share your pics with us on twitter.
3. Gift Box Decorations Using Tissue Boxes
Thanks to rainybutterfly05 for this beautiful (easy!) idea. Wrap gift boxes with garland, fringe and even peppermints. Add a bow and set on cake plates. HINT: Decorations always look best in odd numbers, so having 3 together is perfect!
4. Funny Christmas Toilet Paper
Don't forget to decorate your bathroom for your ugly Christmas sweater party. This Seasons Greetings toilet paper is just the thing to keep it festive in the john. The sky's the limit with what you can do to decorate the bathroom. Hang ornaments from your shower curtain rings. Wrap your toilet seat in Christmas paper. Surround your sink mirror with gold garland. Get the idea? Have fun!
5. Grinch in the Tree Party Decoration
This Grinch in the Christmas tree decoration by cozypep on roomzaar.com is so awesome that your guest won't ever forget it! Super fun. Super festive. And it's something to do with those lime green tights.
6. Bathroom Door Cover with Santa Sitting on the Toilet
Ok, so this isn't DIY, but it's hysterical! This is a 5' tall door cover with Santa sitting on the toilet reading is naughty or nice list. Put this gem on your bathroom door to show your guests where the facilities are located. This is great. And it's super cheap.
7. Colorful Hanging Ornaments from a Chandelier
This a great decorating idea! Get some shiny ornaments from your local big box store and hang from a light fixture or window. The ornaments will reflect the light and add some beautiful bling to your room.
8. Autographed Selfie Portrait for the Table
What's tackier than an autographed self portait (of yourself!) displayed prominently on your gift or food table? Get (or make) a festive frame and take a photo of yourself. Sign it in bold black marker, and proudly display. HINT: This also makes a great prize for MOST UGLY SWEATER. Thanks to Kirsten for the great idea!
