Get Inspired With These Christmas Decor Ideas

‘Tis the season to get crafty! There are millions of Christmas decor ideas, but here are just a few that will really take your interior design to the next level of holiday cheer.

1. Get Frosty

Add an icy layer to all of your Christmas decorations with nothing more than a homemade glitter mix. The trick is blending 3/4ths white glitter with 1/4th silver. It will gleam like freshly-fallen snow, and it can be used on everything from wreaths to dining room centrepieces.

2. Spell A Holiday Greeting

This particular project uses cardboard letters that you’re supposed to upholster with your choice of fabrics, but honestly, you can make a hanging banner out of anything. You can even let your kids cut out letters with coloured construction paper! The specifics don’t matter as much as the warm holiday message behind it.

You don’t have to splurge on advent calendars. If you have a few bags, envelopes or jewellery boxes to spare, you can create your own advent calendar filled with surprises for each of the 12 days of Christmas. Not only will it save money, but it might also become a nightly ritual for you and your little ones.

4. Wrap Your Pendant Lights

Your holiday dishes aren’t the only things that could use a little garnish! There are many ways to wrap your hanging pendant lights, including garlands twined around their stems or ribbons tied at the bottom of their shades. You can even drape tinsel around them if you don’t mind it falling into your hair at random moments.

5. Decorate a New Kind of Tree

This “mason jar Christmas tree” is perfect for crafters of all ages. Not only is it made out of everyday objects that you probably have lying around the house, but you and the kids can decorate it however you’d like. If your toddler wants to add stickers, that’s fine. If your moody teenager wants to paint it completely black to match their soul, that’s fine, too.

6. Get Pretty With Plaid

Plaid is one of the time-honoured patterns of Christmas linens, so don’t be afraid to use it all over your house. Lay down red tartan as a tree skirt; stitch some green squares into your festivity quilt. If you’re worried about overdoing it, just make sure the colours, shapes and line widths of your plaid are very diverse.

This homemade wreath doesn’t require pine needles. Instead, it’s created with a series of pictures that curve around a wire frame in place of the traditional leaves and twigs. It’s a heartwarming craft that will help you remember the true meaning of Christmas.

8. Go Green

Mistletoe is the obvious choice for holiday foliage, but there are other plants that can bring festive sights and scents into your home, too. Sprigs of holly can decorate your fireplace mantle. Poinsettias can be arranged on your side tables. You can even put a peppermint plant in your kitchen.

9. Wrap It Up

Are you one of those people who hangs on to tiny squares of unused wrapping paper because you never know when you’ll need to wrap a thimble someday? Get rid of the clutter by creating DIY wall art with leftover wrapping paper. A few poster boards or foam blocks are all that you’ll need to get started.

These are just a few ideas for fun, festive holiday decor. Whether you’re an experienced crafter or a complete newbie to the world of glue guns and creative thinking, let these ideas kick-start your imagination!

After the holidays are over, change up your interior design with these home decor trends you’ll love!
