Top Christmas Decoration Ideas You Should Steal
Work your way through our list and get inspiration for a truly memorable Holiday:
1. Add Lighting Strategically
Choose ambience lighting that you can control to cast a welcoming glow over the windows and illuminate certain areas of your house, such as the door. Choose top-quality options to show off your décor to full effect and make your home feel bigger and welcoming for guests. Don’t ignore any dark corners to ensure you get this effect.
2. Introduce Nature into Your Home
Bring in some natural elements to make your home a winter wonderland for the holiday season. You can never go wrong with mistletoe, acorns, holly and poinsettias.
Add these natural elements to vases or tables in your home to stay true to the theme. You’ll be amazed at how festive and warm your décor will become afterwards.
3. Add Scented Candles
Scented candles trigger memories of happy times and can make your Christmas truly memorable. Add candles around the house that give off cinnamon, apple pie and berry scents to get into the festive mood.
Place them around the windows, in the bathroom and the entrance. Get into the spirit as soon as you enter. Create a dramatic arrangement by placing scented candles together. Or just add a subtle, magical touch with a few candles placed strategically around your home.
4. Use Artificial Snow
Snow will make a muddy mess in your house, so choose artificial snow as décor instead. Add it liberally to your banisters, window sills, and even on your Christmas tree. The best part is that it won’t melt, so your décor will look fresh all season.
It’s a great décor item for you if you have small children who get excited when they see snow falling. So add a light dusting of fake snow around your home to maintain that winter and Christmassy flair.
5. Add Fairy Lights for a Magical Look
Christmas or fairy lights provide an affordable and quick way to make a space more festive, cosy, welcoming and magical. Improve your home’s curb appeal by adding these around the perimeter of your house, the roof, windows and doors.
If you have a garden with trees and bushes, string fairy lights through the branches and leaves to give the space a natural glow. Line them across your windows to add a touch of magic to your window treatments. For a polished look, trim your hedges and trees before stringing the lights on them. It will streamline your home’s look considerably.
