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!
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.
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.
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. Along the way, you may even get the opportunity to revisit your favorite decorations of Christmas' past like Grandma's vintage Santa figurines or the glittering tinsel trees you grew up with. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
