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.
Not all Christmas door decorations have to be bright and sparkly. This gorgeous design idea is completely inspired by the beauty of nature. It’s a perfect opportunity to embark on a fun Christmas craft project with some found objects from nature. Add real pine-cones, leaves and crabapples to a wreath using a hot glue gun. These natural items accentuate a wreath or a garland beautifully. If your favorite part of the Christmas season is exploring the beauty and splendor of a forrest before the snow has really begun to fall, this is without a doubt one of the absolute best homemade Christmas decorations you could make.
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.
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!
How The Grinch Stole Christmas is one of the most iconic holiday stories of all time. This Grinch-inspired Christmas decor will impress everyone in your neighborhood. The door hanging can be created easily. Using green fabric, hand stitch a large stocking with a pointed toe. Fill it with pillow stuffing and close it at the top. Add a red fur trim and red fabric polka dots using fabric glue and finish with a candy cane trim. The upside-down stockings can easily be created using white Styrofoam cones and red and green ribbon.
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.
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.
