Can we all take a moment and let the fact that Christmas is just around the corner, sink in?! Christmas is hands down my FAVORITE holiday! The beautiful decorations, family get togethers, delicious food, warm cozy fires, Christmas lights, and if we are lucky ; SNOW!! The whole Spirit of Christmas is magical!
Now that being said I am not the girl to listen to Christmas music in July and I rarely watch Hallmark Christmas movies. I usually start getting into the holiday spirit the day after Thanksgiving because well, I also enjoy fall, breaking out my massive scarf collection (of which I only wear about three), and hating on pumpkin spice.
However, this year is going to be a bit different. This year I will be getting into the Christmas spirit starting today, November 4th. And here’s why.
A group of amazing DIY and home bloggers (27 of us to be exact) decided to collaborate and bring to you the Deck the Halls Blog Hop! Each Monday, until December 7th, we will each post our Christmas DIY and home projects. Yep all 27 of us. THINK OF ALL THE INSPIRATION!! Plus, this will give you plenty of time to make your own projects if you see one, or two, or twenty you love!!!
Each week will have a theme, this week being door decor. I came up with a quick and easy boho Christmas door decor project that only took me about 20 minutes and I spent less than $10.
The supplies needed for your very own boho Christmas door decor are simple:
You will need one large and one small, but only the inside rings will be used. I found mine at local Goodwill for a whopping $2.
Michael’s had exactly what I needed in the clearance section for $3.91!!
I had plenty of this laying around, so no need to buy new!
I used a fake berry stem and fake succulents. I got my berry stem from Michael’s for $2 and I had extra fake succulents in the crafting stash.
And of course no need to buy these, I already had a pair on hand!
But if you don’t have all everything you need or don’t feel like running out to get the supplies, Amazon has got you covered!
Cut a long length of hemp, this will be used to make your dream catcher. Don’t worry about cutting the hemp too long, you can use whatever is left over to cover the ends of your decor.
Cut the thick yarn into your desired lengths; make sure you cut double the length you want as you will be looping the yarn. (see pictures below)
Make the dreamcatcher:
Tie one end of your hemp to your small ring. Next, using your finger as a measuring tool, loop your string around the ring again (do not tie).
Continue this step the entire way around the ring. Once you get back to the knot, tie another knot to keep what you looped tight. (DO NOT CUT remaining hemp) Take the rest of hemp and loop through the middle of the loops you created on the first round.
Keep repeating this process until you have wound the hemp around to a small circle. You will have to keep tightening your hemp as you loop so that you can see the design you are creating. Once you are satisfied with the dream catcher design, tie off the hemp and trim the excess. Save the excess hemp, if any, for later use.
Make the large hoop
Next, I took the large embroidery hoop and looped my thick yarn around the hoop.
I continued this until I used all ten of pre cut yarn pieces.
Attach the dream catcher to the larger hoop.
I laid the large hoop on the floor and placed the dreamcatcher loop inside. I knew I wanted the dreamcatcher to be off to the side but really you can put it wherever you want. I attached the dreamcatcher off center of the hanging yarn. I used my leftover hemp to secure the dream catcher to the large hoop.
Now I was ready to add the decorations. I laid out my decorations and played around with the placement till I found positions I was happy with. I then tucked the stems of the berries and succulents into the hemp that was securing the dream catcher to the large hoop. This helped keep the decorations tight in place. To help secure them even more and cover the pieces of stems that were sticking out, I wrapped the remaining hemp pieces around the hoop.
Trim the thick yarn
I also decided that I did not like how the bottom of the thick yarn looked, so I trimmed the ends into a “v”.
Hang the door decor!
To finish it off I just added a piece of jute string at the top so I could hang it on the door and WA-LA, my boho Christmas door decor was complete!
It was such a simple and fun project to make and not to mention, easy on the bank account!
So before you run out and buy an expensive Christmas door decor, check out what all the other awesome blogger are doing! You may just be inclined to make something yourself and save yourself some mulah! Not to mention, you get to have fun doing it!
This is so pretty, I love how natural it looks and very inviting.

Ahh, I love the little dream catcher inside the larger hoop. And cutting the thick yarn into a V looks perfect!

This is so pretty! I love the simplicity of the design. I think I’ll make one for my daughter, she would love it!
Thank you! I would love to see it!
This is so unique and original! I like how doesn’t scream Christmas decor…just a subtle nod to the holidays with red berries. You can hang it up year round!
Thank you! That was my goal! I am planning on changing out the berries for flowers in the spring, leaves for fall, etc!
I love this! Especially how you have used succulents to add a touch of green! The dream catcher accent really pulls the look together! It is awesome seeing all the different styles of Christmas door decor!
Thank you! I too loved seeing what everyone came up with, it was so diverse!
This is so creative and so cute, love!
I love how simple and pretty this is!!
So pretty, Jessica! I love dreamcatchers! I’m amazed you did a project in 20 minutes 🙂 Mine always end up forever LOL
With an 18 mo old running around, that is usually all the time I have before she starts getting into things! So I have to be quick!

Jessica!! This is so lovely!!! And I love that you used yarn!! 🙂
