What would Christmas be without some tasty sweets? This Christmas decoration idea is inspired by all things sweet and delicious that make the Christmas season so great. To create the candy garland, just paint ping-pong or small Styrofoam balls in various bright candy colors, then string them together with a needle and thread. To create the candy cane-inspired polka-dot planters, just cut out circles from a sheet of red vinyl material and hot glue them to a tin planter. Finish the look by scattering some faux gifts wrapped in candy cane-print gift wrap nearby your entryway.
Fresh garlands are gorgeous, but customize yours to give it a touch of fun and to ensure it fits in with the existing environment. Grab some construction paper in vibrant colors and then cut out some seasonal shapes (like these triangle trees). Then glue them together and hang them from your garland. To make it all match, tie a ribbon in a corresponding color around the end of the banister.

For people who live in hot or desert climates, the idea of decorating with garland and balsam can feel a bit out of place.

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.

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.
