Deck The Halls: Christmas Decorating Tips

December 16, 2016
Published by


The holidays can be a costly time of year with gifts, travel, food, decorations and more.  So here are some ways to deck your halls without spending a fortune:

Ornament Cylinders – Put those extra ornaments to use!  Instead of putting unused tree decorations back into storage try creating some beautiful centerpieces and place them around the house.  Add a little sparkle to your home with these easy to do ornament cylinder decorations.  All you need to do is fill an empty cylinder vase with your assortment of ornaments. The great thing about making them yourself is that you can add a personal touch to your Christmas decorations.

Dress Up Your Staircase – Incorporate your staircase into your home decorating by wrapping the handrail with garland or lights.  There are lots of other great ideas for your stairs on Pinterest!

Wrap Your Coffee Table – Spruce up your coffee table with a bow! Create a large present by wrapping your coffee table with a festive ribbon. This is a simple and creative way to add a touch of the season to your coffee table!

Coordinate Your Color Scheme – Carrying the same colors throughout your decorations is a great way to pull everything together.  Use one color or a group of colors that go together to decorate your home for the holidays.  The traditional scheme of red, green, and white is always a safe and classic look.

A Christmas Countdown –  Rather than going out and purchasing an advent calendar try making your own.  Creating your own advent calendar can be a fun and bonding activity for your family. There are an endless amount of ideas when it comes to making your advent calendar.  Here are some DIY ideas to create your very own advent calendar.

When it comes to decorating for Christmas there is no right or wrong way, so be creative and have fun with it!
