Our 5 Favourite Holiday DIY Crafts

November 5, 2019
Written by Aaron

Our DIY holiday decor craft workshops are coming up soon! We can’t wait to show our friends in Simcoe all of our latest ideas for homemade Christmas crafts. While the traditional DIY Christmas wreath and homemade Christmas tree topper are tried and true classics, we wanted to think outside the gift box this year and come up with some modern Christmas DIY decor pieces. These gorgeous pieces are sure to garner lots of oohs and ahhs from guests—they won’t believe you made them all by yourself! Our outdoor pieces are made to last through December until Christmas, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy their beauty. All class fees include materials.

Winter Greens Insert For Holiday Urns

Festive urns are a classic decor piece that we sell a lot of here at Eisings, and now you can create one of your own in your favourite wintery colour scheme with fresh greenery, shiny ribbons, and other Christmas accoutrements. This piece fits inside a classic urn, so you can display it inside your favourite urn or frost resistant pottery.  Place it as a welcoming piece on your front porch or even your back deck where you can view it out your patio doors! You’ll love the classy touch it adds to your outdoor winter decor. 

Take part in this fun, interactive workshop on November 21st at 6:30 pm or November 23rd at 10:00 am. Class fees are $60 plus tax.

Very Merry Mini Christmas Tree

If you prefer classy over kitschy, this creative take on the classic holiday tree makes an attractive outdoor display! The wire tree frame nestled in a bed of vibrant greenery, pinecones, berries, and ribbons is a perfect blend of traditional decor and modern design concepts. Set it up on your front porch, or along your front stairs to show it off! When the compliments start rolling in, you’ll get a kick out of telling folks you made it all yourself. 

Join us on either November 23rd at 1:00 pm, or November 30th at 10:00 am. Class fees are $70 plus tax.

Christmas Welcome Planter

This adorable holiday welcome sign planter has flown off the shelves in previous years, so we decided to host a special workshop to give you a chance to create your own! With all the entertaining we do over the winter months, a festive outdoor welcome sign adds that warm, cozy, and inviting feeling to your home. If you like to craft your own Christmas ornaments and give them away as gifts, you should absolutely join this workshop. Our welcome planter has that personalized touch that makes them all the more heartfelt when gifted to someone special in your life. 

Join us on November 30th at 1:00 pm to make your own. Class fees are $85 plus tax.

Holiday Sphere

If you prefer DIY Christmas decorations that are less on the traditional side, and a little more sleek and modern, you’ll love our holiday spheres. They’re perfect for holding flameless candles outdoors! Evergreen sprigs and twigs with berries spill out from the dome, creating a beautiful canopy of green and red. It’s easy to switch out the greenery with other seasonal plants depending on the month, so you can try re-using this piece for Halloween and Easter craft decorations. 

There are two opportunities to join us at our greenhouse in Simcoe to make your own holiday sphere: November 28th or December 5th at 6:30 pm. Class fees are $75 plus tax.

DIY Christmas Centrepiece

We love Christmas centrepieces! We spend so much time around the dinner table around the holidays, so these DIY elegant Christmas decorations are always sure to get lots of attention. There’s something so sweetly nostalgic and homey about a beautifully decorated holiday table, and the personalized touch of a handmade centrepiece is truly the icing on the cake. An artful combination of winter greens, pinecones, berries, and silky ribbons make for a stunning arrangement, but knowing exactly how to piece it all together can be a bit tricky. 

Join us on December 12th at 6:30 pm, and we’ll walk you through all the steps to create your own! Class fees are $45 plus tax.

If you’ve got any other holiday crafts you’re hoping to create, feel free to stop by Eising Greenhouse and Garden Centre in Simcoe to stock up on supplies! We love getting ready for the holidays, so don’t hesitate to ask us for help with picking the perfect holiday greenery to brighten up your home.
