With Christmas just round the corner, those jingle bells are well within earshot. It’s the season to be jolly, and a time for celebration, feasts, and some lovely Christmas decoration to bring in the holiday season. With these great ideas, you can make your home look like a Christmas wonderland.
Plaid it up – Plaid undoubtedly screams Christmas. Incorporate plaid into everything possible in the house, whether it’s your cushion covers, table cover or tree skirt.
Ice lanterns – You could use plastic cartons to create beautiful ice lanterns. Just fill them up with water, freeze them and attach bulbs in the center to create magical ice lanterns for your garden or porch.
Card display – If you receive a lot of Christmas cards from friends and family, create a space for them on a blank wall. You could create a frame using wood and chicken wire, and pin up all your cards there.
Snowflake walls – Pick a nice dark wall in the house and stick snowflakes made of ice-cream sticks on it for your very own wall decal. You could also paint snowflakes using washable paint marker on mirrors and glass surfaces including windows around the house.
Gift wrapped books – What is Christmas without gifts? A lovely way to create a festive vibe is to wrap up all the books on your bookshelf with left over wrapping paper and place them in various areas in the house.
Candlelit dinners – Adorn your dining table with a bunch of candles. Use slabs of birch and place tea candles on top of them to create that dreamy Christmas look in the evenings.
Tinsel messages – Create fun Christmas messages using shiny tinsel and display them on the tree or over wreaths, in the entryway, or just about any corner of your house.
Pine love – Fill pots with fresh pine and spruce them up with twinkly lights. These pots will make for lovely adornments for your entryway.
Lit garlands – Christmas garlands and lights can never go wrong in creating that Christmassy vibe.
Pine garlands and ribbons – Dress up your stairway bannisters and any other railings in your house with pine garlands. Then casually tie up some red ribbons around them to create that perfect Christmas look.
Wreaths – Dress up your windows with beautifully decorated wreaths using embroidery hoops.
Lantern craft – Fill up lanterns with colorful decorative items and place it at the entrance for a welcoming and festive entryway.
Starry sky – Hanging stars are as Christmassy as they get. Get them in different shapes and sizes and hang them up at different levels.
