Ree Drummond has said that enjoying her famous cinnamon rolls are among her top reasons for loving the holiday, along with making Christmas dinner and buying Christmas pajamas for her family. But that doesn't mean she won't get excited—like, really excited—about all of the other fabulous aspects of the holiday season, like setting out her nutcrackers and trimming the tree with beautiful Christmas tree decorations and DIY Christmas ornaments. (A Frasier fir is Ree's favorite type of Christmas tree.) If you also love going all out on making your home merry and bright in December, you'll want to check out all the beautiful Christmas decoration ideas ahead.
And to add even more holiday spirit to these decorations, guess what?

You'll find homespun stockings, delicate garland, inventive wreathes, fun signs, and so many more homemade holiday decorations ahead. So, grab your coziest blanket, craft supplies, and your Santa hat: It's time for an epic session of Christmas crafts.
