Every year we pull the same tired old Christmas decorations down from the attic and hang them in all the usual places. Yes they look nice, yes you like them, but they just don’t inspire that festive feeling in you the way they once did. If this sounds familiar, it’s time to try something a bit different. Here are a few new Christmas decoration ideas for you to consider.
Keep It Simple
With a few apples or pears, some glitter, and glue, you can make a simple yet attractive Christmas centerpiece for your table or your own unique baubles. In fact, you can add glitter to any number of things – pine cones, bottles, dried leaves, anything really.
Turn Your Christmas Tree Into a Work of Art
Whether you’re after something traditional or you fancy going a bit more contemporary, your Christmas tree is the perfect place to indulge your creative flair. There are many alternative ways to decorate your tree, and the rainbow-coloured example above is just one of them.
Display An Alternative Christmas Tree
As well as (or instead of) your main tree, why not decorate your home with an alternative tree, which can be pretty much anything as long as it follows that recognisable Christmas tree shape.
Reconsider Your Wreath
Nothing offers a warm festive welcome quite like a Christmas wreath. The classic wreath designs are lovely, but there are many variations on the theme you could opt for instead.
Do Something Different With Your Christmas Lights
We normally only decorate our Christmas trees with them, occasionally also draping them on window frames or around the outside of the house. This year, consider doing something different with your Christmas lights, like these gorgeous fairy light jars above.
Think Outside the Box
As we’ve already seen on this list, there are any number of ways to take tried and tested Christmas decoration ideas and turn them on their head – quite literally with this example!
Go Christmas Garland Crazy!
You can make a garland out of pretty much anything as long as it has a Christmassy feel to it. For a truly festive home, hang, drape, and wrap garlands everywhere you can.
Make the Most of Your Christmas Candles
We all love lighting a few candles during the Christmas season – with their flickering glow, they bring a traditional festive atmosphere to the home. Candles are hugely versatile, and can be used in a number of inventive ways, as is evident from the apple candles above.
Say It With Flowers
Flower arrangements look great all year round, but they’re particularly appealing and effective when created with the season in mind. Holly, pine cones, and cranberries are well suited to Christmas flower arrangements.
