Adorned with jingle bells, red jute webbing runs down the length of the tree. Burlap poinsettias add a decorative touch, and a seven-point star hand-crafted from vintage sheet music hits an especially high note. Antique sleds are a practically sized sub-in for a one-horse open sleigh. Tip: Assign each family member a sled, and pile on gifts accordingly.

The end result? These jolly decorating ideas will make every inch of your home will look and feel as festive as Whoville. And don't forget to pick up a copy of our Christmas Spectacular issue, bursting with festive decorating ideas.

For people who live in hot or desert climates, the idea of decorating with garland and balsam can feel a bit out of place. Just because you don’t live in a snowy climate doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy Christmas door decorations, however. Give your beach house or desert abode a little touch of winter by creating a simple string of hanging white snowflakes to place above your front door. This DIY christmas decoration can be made quite easily – just use the old trick of folding a few sheets of white paper and making small random cuts. Finish with a spray of white glitter from the craft store to really give this look some sparkle.
Once you've chosen the perfect tree, showcase your personal style with our wide selection of Christmas tree decor. Our collection of ribbons and trim offers everything from sleek and colorful ribbons to sprigs of bright berries and flowers. Finish off your tree with gorgeous ornaments featuring hand-detailed styles and glittering accents for an enchanting holiday atmosphere.

From DIY Christmas ornaments to simple Christmas table decorations and even show-stopping holiday holiday wreaths, there's something here for just about everyone. Handmade sweater stockings, a DIY advent calendar made of galvanized pails, and boxwood chair markers are just a few of the inspired ideas you'll find on our list. And we're not asking you to relegate your creativity to the inside of your house either. We've also made sure to include a few DIY outdoor Christmas decorations that'll have your front porch looking ready for the holiday season in no time. A shiny Brite wreath gives your door a vintage-inspired feel, while "snow-covered" pine cones work beautifully in your family room or on your front porch. Let's get crafting!
It's the season of lights, so make the most of it by filling your home with twinkling colors. Look for mini lights to add specks of color to the Christmas tree or garland in the house. For a more dramatic look, consider C7 and C9 lights to frame your doorways or illuminate outdoor trees. Drape your house in icicle lights that cascade down a few inches from the roof line, or cover your shrubbery with net lights that add instant sparkle. You can stick with a single color for a monochromatic look or spice it up with an array of hues. If you plan to turn your property into a holiday spectacle for your neighbors to enjoy, consider laser lights that dance on the walls or your house and pair them with inflatable characters that expand to take up space and move in the wind.
