Not many people can pull off decorating a Christmas tree entirely with homemade ornaments, but Lia Griffith does it beautifully and effortlessly. Growing up in a family of devoted DIYers nurtured Lia’s love for crafting, and consequently helped her to forge a successful career in graphic design. Through her blog, she offers valuable techniques, advice, and ideas to promote her passion for living a handcrafted lifestyle.
If you’re tired of using the same Christmas decorations every year, then it’s time to think outside the old ornament box. To freshen up the look of your tree or holiday spaces, turn to your favorite pastime or profession for inspiration. We’ll show you how to use old trinkets, knick-knacks, collectibles, or the tools of your trade to add style and personality to your usual holiday decorating tradition.
Holiday cheer shouldn’t be limited to the room where your main Christmas tree is placed. Spread Christmas spirit to every room of your home with these simple and fun decorating tips.
Choose a Christmas color scheme to use in your bedroom. You may opt to adopt the color theme you used on your Christmas tree, or choose an entirely different palette appropriate to the season.
Make the entrance to your room warm and welcoming with a festive and colorful wreath. Decorate your walls or bulletin board with holiday photos, Christmas stick-on decals, or anything that are easy to hang and take down.
A miniature Christmas tree, such as the Treetopia Fresh Berry Potted Pine, adds a lively glow to your writing desk or night table with its collection of clear lights.
For your bed, place a winter quilt or bedspread that reflects your chosen colors along with a few Christmas-themed pillows. As a final touch, hang a sprig of mistletoe directly over your bed .
Add some Christmas spirit to the room where you create delicious and magical meals. A pair of these adorable Treetopia Snow Capped Mini Flocked Trees on the kitchen counter provides fun and cheery company as you prepare your next awe-inspiring holiday dish.
Put a dash of color on your tabletop with sprigs of greens and red winterberries in simple vases or jars. Christmas candles in decorative glass or tin holders also add a beautiful touch. Make sure to avoid scented candlesticks though, as they may overpower the appetizing aroma of your cooking.
A gingerbread house and a carafe filled with red and white candy canes are a sweet way to give your kitchen a hint of nostalgia and a pretty punch of color.
Decorating the bathroom for Christmas can be lots of fun. First off, switch your regular hand towels for ones with colorful Christmas designs. Tying red satin ribbons around stacks of towels makes for a quick and beautiful piece of holiday décor.
Next, hang simple ornaments from mirrors and windows but avoid wired or battery-operated décor as spills and splashes can occur in the bathroom. Displaying shiny ornaments in a decorative tray is also a chic, simple, safe way to spruce up your bath.
Finally, place scented candles in decorative glass or tin holders. The pleasant fragrance of apple, peppermint, or mulberry adds a great layer of comfort to this all-important room.
In all the holiday rush, we tend to focus all our decorating in the living room, dining room, or den. Get your entire home ready for the holidays by extending the joyful look of Christmas to other, often overlooked rooms.
