As the fall season begins, people get swamped by house preparations for festivities. In the blink of an eye, Halloween decor is replaced by Christmas, the Ghost trend gets outdated, and invitations to year-end house parties are distributed.
However, the Christmas spirit also brings the challenge of sprucing up your house. After all, the decorations should not be limited to adding the usual, i.e., Christmas tree and lights, right?
Considering the same, in this article, we’ll share a few astonishing decor ideas that’ll make your house into a Christmas wonderland.
Go Overboard With Tree
Christmas decor majorly revolves around trees, lights, and ornaments. So, as soon as you get your tree, start charming it with unique items.
For instance, you can use hand-painted chinoiserie ornaments; instead of regular metallic ornaments. Similarly, you can use festive berry branches instead of the traditional tree (start) topper. It will make your tree look unique yet inviting.
Additionally, you can use fake snow, lights, photographs, and socks to make the tree look brimming.
Add A Snow Globe
The snow globe is a must-have decor item that you should include in your list. You can use them at the dining table, over the fireplace, at the entrance, or on wall shelves.
In fact, if you are going with a specific theme, you can DIY the snow globe. Here’s how:
- Get your old glass jars or bottles.
- Paint the lid with the color of your choice- gold, silver, or even red.
- Once the lid is dry, paste small brushes (that look like the Christmas tree), cute & minor animal figures (such as a penguin, dog, or whale), and fake snow on the inside of the lid.
- Close the jar, and there you have it- a handmade snow globe.
Additionally, you can even gift this to your loved ones as a gesture.
Sending and receiving photo cards and postcards is pretty common during this season. But have you ever thought about using these pictures as decorations? If not, now is a perfect time.
There are several ways in which you can use the photographs; some of them are:
- Hanging fairy lights along with polaroids in the living room.
- Creating a tree (pyramid) of pictures on the wall.
- Using photographs as tree ornaments.
You can add handwritten notes along with the cards to enhance this further. Believe it or not, it will surely make your celebration special and unforgettable.
Cast A Warm Glow
Christmas is all about warmth and positivity. Don’t you agree? That’s why you should consider adding a warm glow to your home. For this, you need fairy lights or LED twinkle lights (plenty of them!) and glass lanterns.
Simply add lights into lanterns and set them up in different areas- fireplace, garden, entrance, staircase, or balcony.
Tip: During the evening, switch to mood lighting, and you’ll see the magic of a warm glow.
To Sum It All Up
Typically the festivity spirit begins long before the actual celebration. Decorating your house, inviting family and friends for dinners, and even doing festive shopping add to this spirit and positivity. So, what are you waiting for? Buckle up and start decking up your home right now.
