My home is having a bit of a Paris moment, and I created some chic DIY Greek Christmas ornaments using miniature bust statues (or mini sculptures, whatever you want to call them).
This is a quick, easy DIY that requires minimal supplies and time.
During my Paris trip this past March, I spent a lot of time in museums, and I loved the statues and sculptures the most. Don’t get me wrong, the paintings were amazing, but it blew my mind that people created these giant sculptures.
In my home, I love to decorate with sculptures and busts, as you can see in the images below.
Here’s one on my $10 blue dresser (this piece has now been moved to the guest bedroom):
Here’s some in my home office (which is Parisian inspired on a budget):
And here’s another one in my living room (and a sneak peek of the dining room makeover):
DIY Christmas Decorations
Before we dive in to the DIY Greek Christmas ornaments tutorial, I wanted to share some of my most popular DIY Christmas/holiday decor posts in case you’re new here.
My bold, colorful and floral Christmas tree from 2018 is one of my most popular posts. I used a myriad of inexpensive faux florals to create this opulent, girly look:
That same year I also did a blue and white chinoiserie Christmas tree in the living room. I added the federal eagle mirror for some extra drama:
You can make some DIY blue and white chinoiserie ornaments using napkins. I love using cheapy dollar store ornaments for this sort of project:
My EASY approach to adding ribbon to a Christmas tree will save you time, ribbon and your sanity. Seriously, it is so darn easy and saves so much ribbon that your tree will look fuller with less ribbon and frustration.
DIY Greek Christmas Ornaments
I’ve had my small flocked Christmas tree up in my office since probably late August, but now that I’ve made these I’m motivated to get all the ribbon and accouterments on there to really make it a Parisian museum influenced tree.
I plan to use green velvet ribbon paired with marble inspired ribbon to create a really unique, festive and glam Christmas tree to enjoy this holiday season. And of course, these DIY Greek Christmas ornaments will be the bit of quirkiness that I love to add to my holiday decor.
I mean, if these Greek statues aren’t squad goals, I don’t know what is!
I’ll be back next week with another Christmas ornament tutorial that is beautiful, easy, but maybe a little more tedious than this one. I do PROMISE it is gorgeous and worth the effort. Here’s a sneak peek:
