Add a Personal Touch With Handmade Items

You can use photos from the previous year and frame them to make ornaments and holiday decorations. Homemade ornaments add such a personal touch, make your home unique, and they're one-of-a-kind.


Incorporate Greenery and Natural Elements

Greenery, whether fresh or faux, never goes out of style. It's a lovely addition to your home's decor during the holidays. These decorations are usually inexpensive and are a great way to decorate your home while on a budget. You can even use some lovely faux wreaths and garland that you can re-use every year.

Include A Separate Tree For The Kids

Of course, the kids enjoy putting all of their fun little ornaments and handmade ornaments on the tree, so why not put another tree upstairs in the kids' bedroom and let them decorate it however they want.



This is possibly one of our favorite Christmas decorating ideas. Stockings are not only for fireplace mantles and for children to open on Christmas morning, but you can use them in many different ways throughout your home. These versatile decorations are also fun to decorate making them a wonderful holiday activity as well.


Bring Candles And Firewood Inside

If you don't have a fireplace, you can still bring in the cozy element of fire by bringing in some candles and firewood. A great Christmas decorating tip is to use handmade dipped tapered beeswax candles to add warmth to a room.

They look great when displayed on a table or hutch. You can also add candles to some antique brass candlesticks and firewood to a wooden crate near the entryway to give it a cozy feel.


Keep It Simple And Small

Don’t get overwhelmed by decorating. Think of it as a fun activity you can do with your family during the holidays, not a stressful chore that needs to be perfect and expensive. A little holiday cheer can be added to your home with just a few decorations.

Use Gifts As Christmas Decorations

Gifts can be placed under the tree, but feel free to think outside the box and use gifts throughout your home. It will give it a festive atmosphere and will keep the area around the tree from feeling crowded or messy. This is especially important if you have a natural tree that needs to be constantly watered and maintained.
