1-Start with a theme
There are so many fun ways to decorate and style your house for Christmas. Start off by picking a theme of some sort. Are you more traditional, nostalgic Christmas or modern, classy Christmas? After picking your theme, start collecting your decorations.
2-Decorate your mantel
The mantle is a great place to start with adding Christmas decorations. Add Christmas Garland and fairy lights to the mantel to give it a homier feel. Create your own holiday mantel banner to add to the decor. You can even thrift candle stick holders and purchase candle sticks to give a more elegant look. To elevate the candle sticks, gather your friends and have a candle painting night. This is a great way to decorate your mantel with a personal touch. Another great personal touch would be to sew or knit your own stockings to add to the mantelpiece. You could even repurpose an old quilt into a stocking! These personal touches will make your space feel cozy and special this Christmas.
3- Decorate your door
Create or purchase a Christmas wreath for your door! This Christmas wreath is an affordable option and includes fairy lights and holly, giving it the perfect festive touch. This is a great way to welcome in guests and adds a touch of holiday cheer to the entrance of your home. Make a DIY frost-wreath by gathering whatever you can find in your garden. Use twigs, leaves, flowers, and pine cones to create a beautiful frost wreath for your door.
4-Use Christmas flowers to create a centerpiece
A great way to add a festivity to your table is to create a centerpiece using a Christmas flower! Poinsettias, Hollies, and lilies are staple pieces to add to a Christmas bouquet. Add in Christmas ornaments and pinecones to tie the look together. Use fake flowers and reuse the centerpiece every year! This is a great way to spruce up your table or you can even create a flower arrangement to use on your mantel.
