Bring holiday cheer to your home through these DIY ideas for your Christmas decorations:
Make a warm welcome
One of the best ways to light up the yuletide season is creating a display of paper luminaries. Line these decorations along the porches, driveways and front walks of your house. A unique display gives off a warm welcome.
Put up a “garden theme” greeting
Convey a cozy yuletide welcome with garden-inspired Christmas decorations. Aluminum-made rustic containers on the stairs, porches and doors provides a casual holiday feel especially when filled with red amaryllis berries (or red blooms) and herbs with lighter accents.
Hang paper-made white baskets
Welcome your guests with a dazzling array of moss, juniper, heather and other seasonal paperwhites hanging in the front door.
Hang some vintage ornaments
You don’t have to spend bucks just to reinvent your Christmas decorations. It’s alright to use vintage ornaments every year. Put some greens and reds in your ornaments to add more holiday feel.
Create a Merry Topper in your mailbox
Top off the square mailbox outside your home with a bouquet of dried winter plants. If necessary, fill the mailbox with rosemary, lavender, fir, cedar, flowering cabbages and pansies to resemble a Christmas symbol. Tuck in huge pine cones to add color.
Beautify your pendant lights
Decorate your pendant lights in the living room or kitchen, depending on your ideal motif. However, many home living experts suggests that putting them in the kitchen brings more luck during the holidays.
String greenery and lights
Put up your garland with lights and cover unsightly wires around your house with any greenery material. You can use kale or any ornamental cabbage.
Decorate your display gifts
Add color and impressive designs to your display gifts by attaching ornaments or bells. To come up with a perfect motif, use the same color ribbon in all your display gifts (as well as real gifts) under the Christmas tree.
Use glittering ornaments
Add holiday cheer to your outdoor areas
Christmas decorations at home won’t be complete without candles, orbs and large growing wreaths placed along porches and patios.
Put some paperwhites in your kitchen
Arrange your shallow bowls and glassware with paperwhites. Additionally, the kitchen bulbs’ shape and size makes the paperwhites a perfect fit for breakfast table or kitchen countertop.
Put up a stunning holiday masterpiece
Make your own elegant holiday masterpiece by decorating your vase with dried red roses and white tallow berries to resemble a birch tree bark. You can add sprigs of green berries and boxwood garland around the base to create a more stunning look.
