Christmas DIY craft and design ideas; stylish ways to festively decorate your home

Perhaps the best part of Christmas is the anticipation and build-up, and being able to craft your own decorations against a happy backdrop of Michael Bublé tunes and sparkling wine.

With that in mind, we've scoured Pinterest for the very best and most beautiful DIY design ideas to adorn your home with this festive season.

From the simple and effective (fairy lights in lanterns) to the more complicated but beautiful (cut-out ballerinas), we've got something here to suit all tastes and skill levels - whether you've got limited enthusiasm or are seriously talented. 

What's more, many of these pieces can be made by re-purposing items you've probably already got, such as leftover tins, wine bottles and wrapping paper.

So come grab your scissors and glitter and get craft-happy with our pick of Christmas interiors inspiration...
