11 YouTube Videos to Watch for Fun Holiday Decor Ideas
I honestly don't remember how I ever figured anything out before the days of YouTube. Based on the amount of time I spend there, I'm certain I've already accrued enough hours to receive my Masters Degree from YouTube University. (This does not exist.)
I can't help myself! The inspiration is just that good! Now that the holiday season is upon us, there are tons of videos bursting at the seams with seasonal DIYs, decor, table settings and everything in between. We sorted through them all to find you the best of the best.
So grab a mug of cocoa and check out some of our favorite Christmas decor videos:
Flat Christmas Tree
For those of you with a limited budget or a small space, you might want to consider a flat Christmas tree! These four DIY flat trees from HGTV Handmade can be made with items you likely already have around your house, and best of all - none of them will break the bank.
My favorites were a tie between the gorgeous washi tape/fringe trim Christmas tree that looks like something you might find in Anthropologie, and the wood grain tape/light tree that is decked out with all sorts of fun, soft ornaments.
Christmas Home Tour
The DIY Mommy has loads of cool videos up on her YT channel and this one is no exception. She lives with her family in Alberta, Canada and takes us through her entire home from top to bottom, sharing all of her Christmas decor and decorating ideas for the holidays.
Though she has a traditional home, she shares tips and tricks that would be useful for anyone, no matter what your style. She also incorporates some vintage touches, as well as some faux and real greenery. She had a Nordic theme this year, so you'll find touches of faux fur and white candles.

Tumblr-Inspired Holiday DIYs
I could honestly listen to this cute 15-year-old British vlogger talk against a black screen while he says things like “aloo-min-ium” instead of aluminum. But no need for that, because he includes a bunch of fun, simple DIY projects in this video for you to try. He makes spiral Christmas trees, twig pots (to use with candles) and a pinecone garland.
These DIYs are Tumblr inspired, so they would be great projects to do with your tween!
