I was in NYC this morning trying to spread some holi-DIY cheer with the folks at the Today Show. Here are my favorite ways to hack your on holiday decor:

1. Wall Tree – Great for a small space, this tree takes only a couple minutes to make and will give you a funky, minimalistic vibe.

2. Book Tree – Grab some books you’ve got gathering dust on your shelves, stack from wide to narrow, and you’ve got a solid Christmas tree going. Be sure to top with the tome you’re currently reading for a cute star and an epic bookmark! (Images via Recyclart and Twig & Thistle)

3. Bow Wreath – Gather up hot glue, a bit of cardboard, and all your extra bows, and you’ll have a fabulous wreath to greet your guests.

4. Ornament Garland – If you’re rocking the wall tree, don’t let all your ornaments sit in storage. Turn them into a gorgeous garland and decorate your mantle or table.

5. Candy Cane Votives – These are great on your holiday table and they’re made from ingredients you already have around the house… Who knew food coloring doubled as stained glass?
