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.
Here's another way to fake the cozy fireplace experience. Draw a fake fireplace with painted chalk on canvas, hang your masterpiece from the wall, add stockings, and then surround it with floor cushions and blankets. This will be a total lifesaver if you live in a small apartment but still want to go big on the Christmas decor. Slide up a teeny tree for the full Christmas effect.

Unless you're going for an ultra-minimalist look, your tree needs some decoration. This is a great way to give your tree some character, show off your personality and have some fun. Ball ornaments are great for adding color to the tree and establishing dominant hues. Look for ornaments with a shiny finish to reflect and amplify light, or choose a glittery finish if you want an icy glow. Blown glass ornaments shaped like birds, bows, and branches give the tree a classic aura. Consider adding ribbon or garland cascading down the side of the tree or add sprigs of holly, pinecones and flowers for a more natural look. Don't forget the tinsel if you want a tree that really sparkles in the evening light.

Just as I mentioned in my my Dollar tree Fall craft and decor ideas I posted back in August, “don’t shoot the messenger”.  Little did I know it would be so warmly received, and yet so early on.  So I figured I would piggy back off that, and share my Dollar tree Christmas craft and decor ideas round up with you.  Obviously, budget friendly craft ideas seem to be pretty popular.  At this point in my life, I pride myself on them.  I enjoy taking something basic and creating some seasonal fun with it.   All the links highlighted will take you to the actual project and/or free printable.
By now, we’re all pretty used to a single wreath hanging on a door as a festive holiday decoration. However, if you want a unique but simple way to spice up this expected look, try hanging three Christmas wreaths, one atop another so that they cover the door from top to bottom. This homeowner chose to leave the wreaths undecorated, but you can easily add string lights or ornaments to give the wreaths a little extra something. This design scheme also demonstrates how easy it is to decorate if you have pillars outside your front door by simply wrapping garland around them.

A Christmas tree is the centerpiece of holiday decorating. It's the focal point of the room and the spot where all the kids gather to check out their Christmas loot. Artificial trees come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from tall and narrow firs that easily slide into corners to robust pines that fill wide, open spaces. As you browse the selection of trees, look for one that fits in the room you have available. You also should consider how much time you want to spend setting up and decorating the tree. Pre-lit trees save you time since you skip the step of stinging the lights. If you like your trees with a light dusting of snow, consider a flocked tree that already has the embellishment added to the branches.

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.
There’s nothing like last minute plans that are sprung upon you out of nowhere — especially if you’re the one who ends up having to host. Whether it’s because of canceled plans, a family emergency, or the other side of the family coming to town, sometimes these are things you can’t avoid. Regardless of the reason, and with no time to spare, there are a few things that must be done, decoration-wise, to usher in the holiday spirit. If you’re not the “festive” type or just didn’t have time for it this year, there are certainly some contingency plans that are available on the cheap. You don’t necessarily have to shell out the big bucks to buy an animatronic Santa Claus or a porcelain Nativity Scene display, but sprucing up the place for some additional Yuletide cheer is kind of a must. Luckily, there are plenty of great indoor decorations for the holiday season that are both cheap and aesthetically pleasing. Heck, they don’t even have to be for Christmas — they can serve as a wintery reminder or as a way to ring in the new year. So let’s look at some of the best indoor decorations just in time for the holiday season. You know what they say: better late than never.
Whether you’re crafting a Christmas tree for the very first time, or simply want to switch things up for a fun holiday refresh, there are decor ideas—big and small—to spark endless holiday inspiration. Take a little decorative risk and opt for an extravagant tree, or stick to the basics with an unadorned pine. Whether you're set on a color scheme or style, or have ornaments you can't wait to use, your tree should reflect your taste and personality no matter which direction you go.
