Mix and match the colors of your holiday decorations.

Even the simplest of décor themes can become works of art if you put a little more thought into the colors used. Whether you focus on your Christmas ornaments, tree, or wreath, the success of your Christmas decoration relies largely on your ability to mix and match colors.

Start by studying the color wheel and some basic color relationships and you’ll be able to play it by ear—and by eye—in no time.
