Christmas decor gifts are a thoughtful way to share the spirit of the season with your loved ones. Give all of your family members personalized stockings to hang over the fireplace, or use them as gift packaging for friends and co-workers. Skip the gift wrap and name tags and just stuff the stockings with some of their favorite snacks, games or personal items. Did someone in your life get married, buy a home or have a baby this year? Commemorate the moment with a personalized Christmas ornament that they can enjoy year after year during the holidays. If you need a quick and easy gift for co-workers, grab a holiday-themed coffee mug and fill it with all the fixings for a cup of soup, hot chocolate, coffee or tea.
If your favorite part of Christmas is the abundance of candy canes, then this Christmas front door decoration is right up your alley. Hang two large outdoor candy canes on either side of your door, the hooked parts facing in opposite directions. If the candy canes you pick up don’t have enough sparkle for your liking, then add some glitter spray, which can easily be found at any craft store. To really give this look some pizazz, loop some candy cane print ribbon around a wreath, finishing off your unique DIY christmas decoration with some metallic green and red bulbs.
Decorating your door is the perfect excuse to take on a fun Christmas craft project. To create your own door star decoration, pick up an unpainted wooden star from the craft store. Spray paint it gold or any color of your choice. For a more rustic look, wrap the star in twine until every surface is completely colored. This simple door decoration is a unique and unexpected twist on the classic wreath. Complete the look with a beautiful string of garland, ornamented with gold string lights or bulbs to compliment your gorgeous (and completely DIY!) star centerpiece.
What would Christmas be without some tasty sweets? This Christmas decoration idea is inspired by all things sweet and delicious that make the Christmas season so great. To create the candy garland, just paint ping-pong or small Styrofoam balls in various bright candy colors, then string them together with a needle and thread. To create the candy cane-inspired polka-dot planters, just cut out circles from a sheet of red vinyl material and hot glue them to a tin planter. Finish the look by scattering some faux gifts wrapped in candy cane-print gift wrap nearby your entryway.
Metallics are one of the most fun hues to play with when you’re doing your holiday decorating. Not only are they classic and perfect for Christmas, but they look absolutely breathtaking when you place white floodlights on them at night. This look can be replicated easily by hanging large gold or silver ornaments from the roof of your front porch using clear fishing wire. To create the unique door hanger, look for small and medium-size old tin pitchers at the thrift store. Using red ribbon, hang them as a bundle from your door knocker. Add string lights to nearby bushes and fir trees to really give this gorgeous Christmas front door decoration some sparkle.
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.
