‘Tis the season! Part of the fun of the holidays is breaking out the decorations. Although each year brings its own holiday traditions, it’s always fun to update your decorations too. This year you and your whole family can get into the festive spirit with these six easy holiday decorating ideas.
Wine Glass Centerpiece
Are you looking for an easy yet visually stunning centerpiece this holiday season? Take three wine glasses and turn them upside down. Fill the cup with little Christmas tree ornaments using a colour scheme like red and gold or using as many colorful ornaments as you’d like. Then place a candle on top of the stem – use battery-operated candles with fake flames if you’re hosting the holiday dinner with lots of little kiddos.
Grab 16 of your favourite old-fashioned ornaments and hang them from the ceiling to make a festive “chandelier.” Use an existing plant hook or mount a new hook in your ceiling. Then tie two three-foot-long ribbons to the hook and attach an ornament at each end. Next, cut four more ribbons two inches shorter than the first and tie those to the hook. Attach ornaments to the ends and repeat with four more ribbons that are even shorter. Lastly, use sticky-tack to stick each ornament to each other.
Mason Jar Crafts
Fill some Mason jars ¾ of the way with Epsom salts then add a sprig of fresh pine tree and some red berries. Voila, a super easy yet beautiful Christmas themed craft! Use it to line your coffee table or mantle.
Do you love a holiday wreath but hate the price of buying one in store? A DIY wreath using Christmas tree ornaments is simple, easy, and affordable. You can even use blue and white ornaments for a Hanukkah theme. Follow this step-by-step tutorial from The Homes I’ve Made to make your own in just 15-minutes.
Floral Arrangement Table Decor
If you’re hosting a holiday dinner, make the table festive with an extra-tall vase full of beautiful branches and seasonal blooms. You’ll get all the drama and beauty of a stunning centerpiece without making your guests have to dip and dodge a face-height arrangement while trying to talk or pass the turkey.
DIY Holiday Doormat
Upgrade a plain coir doormat by using spray paint and stencils. You can stencil on green and white Christmas trees or even blue dreidels. All your guests will feel the holiday spirit as soon as they walk through your door!
