Colorful DIY Christmas Decorations – Merry & Bright!


Take the Christmas cheer up a notch with colorful DIY Christmas decorations. Whimsical rainbow crafts and fun colors are truly merry & bright!

I’m not sure when it all started. I promise I had a fairly normal childhood.

But somewhere along the way, I decided Christmas would be way more fun with bright colors like hot pink, teal, purple, lime green and orange. And I never looked back!

My “merry & bright” Christmas decorations have expanded in the past few years to include a huge rainbow Christmas Tree Cone forest and also a rainbow nativity set, painted with love by my kids.

My husband likes to tease me about the color palette. He jokes that its “Cinco de Christmas” or just calls it “Kylie’s crazy Christmas colors.” lol

Embrace the COLORFUL Christmas!

But I figure that Christmastime is the one time of year when all interior decorating rules go out the window, and we’re free to fancy up our homes with all the twinkle lights, bows, sparkles and color our little hearts desire.

This much glitter is not socially acceptable throughout the year.

But at Christmas-time? Totally fair game!

Kids love a Colorful Christmas

One of my proudest moments was when we were gifted a advent calendar from a family member. It was a nice fabric advent calendar, with a red background and green Christmas trees.

My oldest was about 5 at the time and said to me one day, as she was moving the little snowflake to the next pocket on the advent calendar, “Mom, you should make a new one of these.” She continued, trying to be polite as possible, “This one’s colors just aren’t very …Christmassy.”

So, my work here is done. haha

Merry and Bright DIY Christmas Decorations

I thought it would be fun to round up all of my colorful DIY Christmas decorations, along with a few projects from other color-loving bloggers.

I’m looking forward to adding more rainbow Christmas decorations in the future. Like a rainbow Christmas village, or maybe a rainbow Christmas tree skirt. Oh Christmas is so fun!
