Christmas is one of the only occasions that welcomes glitter, plaid, and twinkle lights with open arms. That means if you’re planning to decorate your house for the holiday, you might as well go all out with well-trimmed trees, elaborate centerpieces, and accessorized mantels.
Instead of sticking with the classic red and green, refresh your kitchen, living room, or other areas in your house for the season by taking inspiration straight from these Christmas decoration ideas, ranging in style, price, and DIY skills.
DIY an Advent Calendar
If you’re not feeling traditional chocolate or toy advent calendars, make your own with paper tags and on-theme trinkets. That way, the whole family can join in on the fun.
Wrap Garland Around Bedposts
Your kids won’t have to worry about any rogue pine needles with this felt holly leaf garland. Just weave it between the bedposts and bed frame to ensure that it stays in place all night long.
Have Fun With Santa
Once Santa does his yearly duties, he can let his hair (or beard?) down. Show everyone his true colours — red, white, and wild — with a cute, mantel-ready display.
Deck the Walls
When you have too many gifts underneath the treat, it’s time to get creative. Enter this gift-covered bookshelf, complete with matching wrapping paper and black, white, and silver touches.
Count Down to Christmas
For an eye-catching statement, place a light box underneath the tree (until it’s time for presents, of course) to count down the days until Christmas.
Make the Bedroom Festive
Your party guests may never see these decorations, but you will (and that’s what counts, right?). Add shades of blue and green to warm up your favourite space.
Aim For Understated Glitz
A pale palette of rose gold’s and pinks allows this holiday vignette to handle glitter galore, with a heavy flocking, coordinating ornaments, even pillows and presents to match.
