Draped over doorways and wrapped around hand rails, garlands and wreaths pull together your holiday decorations and add a touch of warmth to your home's inside and outside spaces. Garland ranges from simple greenery to fully decorated pieces adorned with pinecones, candy canes, holly and sugared fruit. You can even wrap garland with lights for a bit of sparkle. Try single strands of garland across the mantel or tabletops. Deck the front porch railings with tinsel garlands and ribbons. Turn your front door into a festive work of art by hanging thick garland across the top of the frame. Pair it with a coordinating wreath to complete the look.
Contrary to popular belief, there's no need to spend lots of money, time, or energy decking your halls. In fact, that's precisely the thought behind the best DIY Christmas decorations we're sharing with you here. These thoughtful Christmas craft ideas and projects are impossibly easy and time-saving—so time-saving, in fact, that you'll have enough time left over to plan a Christmas party or two! What's more, they're affordable, leaving you a little extra dough to shell out on Christmas presents.
This gorgeous design aesthetic is inspired by the beauty of a wrapped gift sitting under the Christmas tree. Christmas wreaths are a beautiful centerpiece for any door design scheme. This look takes it to the next level by hanging a traditional Christmas stocking on the wreath. To create the appearance of a wrapped gift, string garland around the perimeter of your entryway. This homeowner accentuated the garland with colorful red bows, but you could also add ornaments, tinsel or string lights. Accentuate the look by adding some colorful red poinsettias, a staple of the Christmas season.
Hey, all you Christmas tree lovers, this one is for you! This year, I have been obsessed with tabletop trees. They are classy and add the perfect seasonal décor touch to any room. However they can be expensive, which is why I decided to make my own for just a few dollars. I headed to my local Dollar Tree and picked up a few artificial tabletop trees, some faux flowers and greenery, a tree topper, and a basket for just $1 each. Using white spray paint I had at home, I frosted the trees to make them appear as though they were dusted with snow. I topped them off with the faux flowers and greeney and set them in a basket with white tissue paper and voila… festive décor on a budget!
And while red and green hues can certainly help set the stage for a merry Christmas celebration, you can still have a gorgeous display without being completely color-coordinated. Consider trying to deck your tree with rose gold colors this year, or even walk on a bolder side by opting for blue Christmas decor. You can also deck your tree with ribbon, or try one of these glitter Christmas ornaments if you want to add some sparkle to your spruce. Whatever Christmas tree look you choose , the purpose of all of our best ideas is to encourage you to think outside the box, have fun, and bring your family closer together during December. After all, that's what this holiday—and it's green centerpiece—is really about.
A tree trimmed in traditional red and green emphatically says "Christmas" with top-to-bottom vintage letters. These letters culled from old signs, printers' type, and alphabet teaching aids punctuate this tree. Arrange them to make a statement, and spell out holiday words such as "Ho Ho Ho" and "Holly." Throw in silver starbursts, baubles, and tinsel garland for a stylish '50s aura.

Christine and Gabe Bridger, who own this cozy Michigan home, used vintage sweaters to craft their own unique stockings. To make your own, begin by taking an old sweater and tracing a stocking template, then cutting and sewing it inside out. (Make sure the foldover is sewn the opposite way.) Using scraps, sew on a loop, then add a monogram using metal house letters.


The Christmas tree, while a spectacle in itself, is just the start. Use stockings, wreaths, and garland (along with other festive finds!) to fill the inside and outside of your home with holiday cheer.
