Christine and Gabe Bridger, who own this cozy Michigan home, used vintage sweaters to craft their own unique stockings. To make your own, begin by taking an old sweater and tracing a stocking template, then cutting and sewing it inside out. (Make sure the foldover is sewn the opposite way.) Using scraps, sew on a loop, then add a monogram using metal house letters.

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.
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.
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.
