Christmas decor is an easy DIY project. With a few materials, a crafty vision, and some Christmas cheer, there are not many things as simple as decorating your home for the holiday season. Creating Christmas centerpieces is by far one of the easiest DIY projects. Here are a few elegant and pretty DIY Christmas centerpieces you can try this year.

Let’s start with a single centerpiece we’ve all seen glistening and adorning a mantel or place setting during this time of year at least once before: branches or twigs. If you’ve ever wanted a sparkling twig of your own, you’re in luck.
