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!
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.
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.
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.
