Turn your home into a festive gathering place this season with these unique holiday decorating ideas. They are sure to turn your home into a Christmas wonderland!
Decorating for the holidays is my favorite Christmastime tradition. I like to start my holiday festivities by decorating my Christmas tree. Most years I pick out a unique Christmas tree theme to decorate with, as this helps set the tone for the rest of the house. From there, my husband and I decorate the outside of our home with various strings of colored lights and holiday themed décor. Of course, our most cherished Christmas decorating custom is adding our Traditional Star tree topper to the top of our tree once all the home decorating is complete!
Holiday decorating is all about tradition. Whether you’re carrying on an old family custom, or starting a new trend, decorating for the holidays should be both fun and painless. That’s why I put together this list of unique holiday decorating ideas to help spark some creative Christmas imagination. They are sure to add a festive flare to your holiday celebrations!
Garlands, Garlands, And More Garlands
Garland is one of the most traditional Christmastime decorations, which makes it hard to overdo.
When decorating with garland, you can take the classic route by adding it to banisters, mantels, windows, and doorways, or, to add a more modern twist you can add it to dining chairs and chandeliers. Whichever way you choose, garland is sure to turn your home into a dazzling winter wonderland!
Decorate With Candy Canes
The candy cane is an iconic Christmas sweet and makes a great muse for Christmas decorating.
Hang various colors of candy canes among the twinkling lights on your Christmas tree to add a playful touch to your holiday decorations. To add a nostalgic look to your candy cane ornaments, be sure to tie colored ribbons or twine around them. This is a great way to make use of your Christmastime candy!
Make the outside of your home as festive as the inside by spreading some much-needed holiday cheer to your mailbox this Christmas.
Create an inviting mailbox using a swag of Christmas pine tied together with wire. To enhance it for a more seasonal look to it, be sure to mix in red accent bows and pinecones. This is sure to make every trip to the mailbox a joyful one!
Add Color To Your Decorations Using Poinsettias
Poinsettias in the home are a holiday tradition. Their stunning red color clustered above the bounty of green leaves beautifully showcases the season’s festive colors.
For a more joyful look, place a single poinsettia plant on an end table or on the floor next to a featured piece of furniture. Poinsettias help add a dramatic burst of Christmas cheer to any holiday arrangement.
