Step One: Getting Your Coffee Sleeve

What a goofy-sounding step, huh? Alas, we can’t make this cutesy holiday Hygge decor without a coffee sleeve! But hold your paper horses; we’ve got a fun idea for you to try out.

A major part of Hygge is sending time with the ones you love. Time away from responsibilities, not tied to your phones, completely distraction-free quality time. You can turn this into a family/friends outing that will ultimately lead to a delightful crafting time!

How absolutely pleasant would it feel to go to one of your favorite coffee shops with a small group of people you love, order hot to-go beverages, take a moment to sit down in the cafe and visit, and then head back to a cozy environment and craft? Sounds like a Christmas tradition for the books!

Throw on some Hygge Christmas Ambiencee Music get comfy, and get ready to make some adorable and effortless Hygge decor for your Christmas tree!

Take Aways:

  1. Go to a coffee shop with a small group.
  2. Take intentional time to visit and be comfy together.
  3. Create a cozy environment to craft in.

Step Two: Punch a Hole in Your Coffee Sleeve

Paper hole puncher and coffee sleeve DIY for Hygge decor for Christmas.

This step is pretty self-explanatory, but an important one! You can decide if you’d like to punch a hole in your coffee sleeve either before you start decorating or after. We suggest this before so you don’t have to punch a hole through a part of your coffee sleeve that you worked hard on decorating. Always looking out for your hardworking crafters!

When you’re ready to punch a hole in your coffee sleeve, turn it horizontally and punch two holes towards the top, like in the picture above. If you’d like, you can also hang your coffee sleeve vertically and punch a single hole. Whatever fits your Hygge vision!

Step Three: Decorate Your Hygge Decor

Now here comes the super-duper fun part, decorating! The moment all the crafters have been waiting for; let your creativity go wild and crazy in the name of Hygge Christmas!

In our supplies list, this is where the colored pencils/markers would come in handy. But really, you can use anything your heart desires! Whether you’re drawing your very own designs, you’ve got holiday stickers you want to use up, or you want to print a few things off and paste them on; this is your lovely Hygge decor ornament, and you can make it however you’d like.

Or, if you got a specially decorated coffee sleeve and you think it’s beautiful the way it is, hang that baby up!

If you’re wanting to draw a word on your coffee sleeve to emulate a Hygge vibe, here are some ideas for you to ponder:

  • Hygge-mas
  • Cozy/Cosy
  • Snuggle
  • Merry Tinsel
  • Hyggelig
  • Comfy
  • Family Time
  • Cuddle
  • Lovely
  • Homey
  • Let it Snow
  • Mele Kalikimaka (Gotta have a silly one in there!)

Another fun idea would be drawing your family’s last name on your coffee sleeve and dressing it up with some fun festive doodles. Each letter could look like a different holiday item, the possibilities are as tall as the Rockefeller Christmas tree!

Step Four: Hang Your Coffee Sleeve

Last but not least, it’s time to hang that delightful Hygge decor ornament UP! This step is more of an eyeball guess, as I’m sure many of you seasonal crafters have done from time to time. You can cut a few inches of string, feed it through your hole punches, tie a knot at the ends, and huzzah! Time to hang up your adorable new ornament!

Fun Tip: Date the back! There are precious and fun memories that will be embedded within this simple craft, and whether you believe it now or not, you’ll want to remember what year it was! You can draw the date in a fun way, like you may have done with any words you choose, or simply jot it down.

We’ll leave you with this delightful little quote from “The Little Book of Hygge” that started it all:

“Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience, rather than about things. It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe, that we are shielded from the world and allow ourselves to let our guard down.”
