But, before you can lay down the welcome mat, you may want to spruce up your space by creating a holiday table that captures the spirit of the season. Dazzle your guests this time of year with 5 DIY holiday table decorations.

Confetti Christmas TreesDIY table holiday decorations 1

Encapsulate the joy of the season with these bright and cheery confetti Christmas trees. All you need is a few clear cones, some confetti, spray paint and just a touch of creativity to craft these fun table decorations. Pro tip: use different-size cones to create your own magical mini forest. If you’d like a more traditional look, you can easily use blue and silver or green and red confetti and paint the caps a forest green. Add some fake snow for a wintry scene, and you’ll have the cutest table decorations around.

Bells and Candles

In need of a really easy centerpiece? Look no further than this holiday decoration idea from A Night Owl. Simply take a platter and arrange three festive candles on it. Make sure to choose candles in red, green, gold or silver to complement your festive dining room décor. Then, place jingle bells around the candle jars on the platter. Once guests arrive, light the candles and let the festivities begin.

Epsom Salts Luminaries

Gather some clear glass jars, grab a bag of Epsom salts, and get out your Mod Podge and brushes to create some adorable centerpieces. Once the outsides of the jars are sparkling like a fresh blanket of snow, you can outfit the jars in some holiday essentials. Grab some twine, and affix a few delicate red berries and pinecones. If you want to use the table decorations year after year, opt for artificial red berries and branches. Finally, position some artificial tea lights in each jar, and voilà!

Gingerbread House CityDIY holiday table decorations 2

Forget the traditional gingerbread house. This edible centerpiece deconstructs the classic gingerbread house, and instead, arranges the cookie pieces in a large glass cookie jar atop the sugary snow. So, not only is this gingerbread house city table decoration adorable, but it can be eaten when dessert time rolls around.

Burlap and Plaid Table Runner

If you already have a centerpiece, consider adding an extra layer to your dining room table with this burlap and plaid table runner. Even if you’re not that crafty, you can create a showstopping table runner. All you need is a burlap table runner, a plaid ribbon in holiday colors and a sewing machine. Not to mention, it will add a touch of country to your festive display.
