If you’re like me, you get tired of your holiday decorations pretty quickly—especially when you fall for a different theme every year! That’s why we love to create fun little DIY accents you can swap out each year without breaking the bank or letting your look get stale.

This year we created a few vibrant Christmas tree decorations using our favorite hot holiday colors. They turned out so adorable, we just might keep them for the next office birthday party, too!

Here’s how you can recreate this look on your own:


  • Pretty cardstock or scrapbooking paper
  • A hole-punch
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon and/or string
  • A die-cut in a festive shape (optional)

Step One: Punch-Out and String the Die Cut Shapes

For a quick and easy garland, simply use the die cut to punch out some festive shapes and string them along your ribbon or string.

Step Two: Prep Your Bunting

To match your new garland, cut triangles out of the same type of paper, hole punch them and stack them by color so you can easily create a pattern.

Step Three: Thread Them Through the Ribbon

We worked from opposite ends of the same ribbon to make the project fly by. Just make sure you maintain the same color pattern throughout!

Step Four: Wrap Them Around Your Tree and Enjoy

These colorful little touches will certainly help the season feel merry and bright!
