fun christmas decorating ideas to
'Tis the season to decorate your property in all the natural splendor of Christmas. I personally love
decorating for the holidays... pulling out all of the bins of forgotten decorations... discovering new
items I purchased throughout the year... and falling into strong nostalgia. Decorating for
Christmas is almost as fun as the particular day of Christmas. It truly is a unique time of the year
and making your property special will bring warmth in your family and friend's kisses... and create
I love decorating for Christmas a lot, it looks like Christmas blew up in my house... but in a good
So... I've listed 17 ideas for decorating home your property for the holidays. I hope that you find at
least one new idea for a person... and maybe a handful of will inspire you having a whole list of
1. Brighten your christmas tree
It's easy to string lights in your Christmas tree... but take tree lights very seriously inside my
house. My husband wraps every person branch and twig along with lights. Yes, it's a bit tedious...
but the result is actually breathtaking. Hey, you're going to be taking a look at that tree all 30
days... take the extra time and really make the tree glow... literally.
2. Decorate your stair train
This is a provided, but it amazes me how few do it. Whenever you see beautifully decorated
homes in magazines the thing is this grand staircase wrapped in garland and lamps. It's stunning.
And you can hold the same exact effect in your home. It's easy! Wrap your banisters with garland.
You can go cheap and make use of the standard green garland in the box... or you can go all out
and obtain some more realistic garland. Whatever your budget can handle... do what's best for
you personally. Now, wrap the garland in white lights. It doesn't matter what sort of garland you
use... because once those lamps are on... wow! But don't stop there! Tie a pretty christmas ribbon
bow in the bottom and top of the hand rails. And if you have sufficient ribbon, wind the ribbon
loosely round the rail. Don't wrap the ribbon the same as you wrapped the garland... offset it a
tad. Now, you're really decorating!
And if you're inspired... grab some shiny christmas ball ornaments and suspend those on your
garland completely up the stairs. I bet you didn't know your home could look so high-class!
3. Add christmas bows
I add bows made of all sorts of christmas ribbon all over my house. On the stair railroad, on my
wreaths... on the ends of my draped garland. On door knobs. I attach them in order to my outdoor
house lamps. I add a large swag christmas bow just underneath my angel on my personal
christmas tree. And for my 2nd tree (yes, my second tree) I have a big 2-ribbon shrub topper bow.
4. Hang wreaths in home windows
It's common to hang wreaths on your front door. But I love clinging wreaths on my home windows.
I'm not talking about just on the outside of your house. I also mean on the inside. I don't hang
wreaths in all my windows... my I select a room that needs a tiny extra Christmas spirit as well as
hang one in every window. I also hang a wreath above the hearth. And another on my own book
shelves. And guess what... I add bows to all of them.
5. Greet visitors with a few fun
All the formal designing stuff is nice... but don't forget to include some personality and fun for your
rooms. Especially in your foyer. Find something that enables you to smile and put this where
people will see it as soon as they come into your home. I found this Holiday center piece that
consists of holly leaves, berries and 3 stacked gingermen. It is adorable! It makes me smile and I
use it a table in my personal foyer. Now, I enjoy it once i come home... and others can appreciate
it when the visit. It's silly and I really like it!
6. Create memories with little decorations
Growing up, I always remembered my Mother's little Christmas knick-knacks. Like snow globes
and funny little snow men. I really didn't follow in tradition after i first had kids. But my Mother
gifted me little silly items every year. And as the years have gone on, my children ask about a few
of these items when we decorate the house. I have a little igloo with snowmen which has a little
light that acts just like a fire. My daughter remembered this from a year ago and was so fired up
when she saw this out. It's the little items... literally... that can be the most special.
7. Decorate your fireplace mantel
My fireplace mantel differs from year to year. I've draped garland and also lights and hungs
stockings. I've displayed a number of different sized candles dressed in pine cones and garland.
I've displayed framed photos of the family. Whatever you decide... just have fun by using it.
Experiment. Try varying heights of your few different items. Try simple... try cluttered. Find your
8. Add garland
Like wreaths, add garland everywhere! I wrap garland around the banisters... I frame the door
ways. I drape garland together with fruit over my people from france doors. I lay garland over the
top back of my couches. I even wrap my own columns in garland.
10. Add a little character for your front yard
I used to perform the "nice" decorating during my front yard. White lights on the particular shrubs.
Garland and white lights around my door. And it IS nice. But now, I try to add a little fun. Not too
much... I still don't want my yard looking like I'm creating a yard sale! This year I covered my front
walk in light up candy canes. So cute! I still have my own white lights on the rest... but its the
candy canes that make me smile. And my kids really like them!
11. Place wrapped gifts
Wrap boxes in gleaming paper... tie a ribbon to them... and place them around your house. What
fun! I place wrapped gift boxes on my guide shelves, a few in the blank corner... some under the
sapling... anywhere that you must add a little Christmas cheer. What an easy way to decorate!
Ah, the soft flicker regarding candle light can really increase the mood of a comfortable home. I
love the look of candles in house windows. Obviously, don't use real candles for this. I also like to
light a few candles around my home. The smell of cinnamon and also holly is delicious.
13. Fill glass vases with cranberries and sparkle
Pull out those goblet vases that just sit in your cupboard. Fill them with artificial cranberries, clear
glass stones, salt, pine cones, and/or christmas balls. Layer and be creative. And then leave
these filled vases out. This a professional designer trick. It's quick and this looks amazing!
14. Bowl of ornaments
Take a large bowl and fill it with a few of your extra christmas tennis balls. Or, collect some unique
ones that you personally love... and place those inside your bowl. Place this bowl in the heart of
your coffee table or home.
15. Photos of Christmas recollections
Pull out some of the precious memories of Christmases previous and put them in certain
decorative frames. Shiny silver frames... red painted frames. Whatever you like. And place these
around your property. You'll find that you'll start remembering stories and also sharing these
moments with your family and friends.
16. Christmas hand towels and bathroom mats
Don't forget the bath rooms! Add a cute hand towel and a christmasy flooring mat. I have a
chimney tissue box that we place on the back of the hall bathroom toilet. Just add a little
17. Set your dining table
You may not be expecting dinner guests, but it's always nice undertake a decorated and set table.
Pull out your favored holiday dishes. I have these fun white dishes who have reindeer, christmas
trees and santas painted on them. I love them! Dress up your stand with colorful place mats....
place random christmas balls over the table... place a dramatic hub... and light some votive wax
