Inspiring Christmas Decorating Ideas
Let’s face it, although all if those sparkling decorations at the local discount store are beautiful enough to dazzle just about anyone, once we get them home we realize that they are just like the ones our neighbor had last year. By adding a few personalized ornaments here and there, however, and getting creative, you can really spice things up. Thankfully, ornaments don’t have to be just for the tree. Here are a few creative decorating ideas that will turn ho-hum items into magnificent masterpieces:
- Add new life to your tired mantle this holiday season with fresh customized stockings and a unique trick. Once your stockings are hung by the chimney with care, drape natural-looking garland across the edge of your mantle and place those otherwise plain glass balls in clusters of 2 or 3 at the corners. Now add a couple of candles and maybe a decorative mirror, and voila!
- Welcome your holiday guests with a unique Christmas wreath this holiday season, but don’t stop there. Order a few freshly prepared wreaths and hang them from the inside doors throughout your home as well! If you want to get even more creative, use wreaths to add some holiday spirit to windows and mirrors as well. Not only will they add a splash of color to your decor, but the scent of freshly cut pine is sure to put your inner Grinch to rest.
- Christmas decor doesn’t have to be centered around the traditional reds and greens. Use your existing decor as inspiration and create a winter wonderland that reflects your personality. Colors to consider? Blue and silver will brighten your home with a modern holiday feel, while purple and gold will create a royal ambiance that is fit for the three kings.
- Spruce things up with natural decor from your yard or the nearby park. Pine cones, painted twigs, small branches from evergreen trees, and even dried flowers can add a unique holiday touch to your home this season.
