These ways to decorate your home for Christmas will bring sparkle and joy to your festive celebrations. From baubles and tinsel to lights and natural decorations that you can make yourself, there are many ways to make sure you are ready for Christmas. You might be thinking of a glitzy and glamorous theme or a classic red, white and blue, but whatever your preference, Christmas decorating is always fun to do.
Glitz and glamorous colours
Bring all the sparkle to your dinner table with a starry gold or silver and white theme. From white fairy lights and tall candles to crisp white napkins and gold or silver cutlery to match, you can have a very plush Christmas. Match up your dinner table with all your other festive decorations and add gold, silver and white baubles to the tree, and ensure there are accents of gold and silver in your mantelpiece and staircase wreaths.
The classic Christmas colours (red and green) are a popular choice not just because they look lovely but can bring the traditional Christmas feeling to your home. Fill your tree with green and red tinsel, and add some shiny decorations and a big star on top. Don’t forget the matching wreath for the front door, mini decorations for your shelves and some flashing lights for the party.
Natural craft decorations
If you’d prefer a natural and cost-saving way to decorate this year, try making your own decorations from foraged pine cones, twigs and leaves. Dry leaves and then paint patterns in white, gold and silver on them before hanging them on a tree or use as table decor. Pine cones can be placed in a bowl or clear vase with lights, and twigs can be made into shapes such as a Christmas tree and stars with a little string to hang from the tree. If you like a modern take on a Christmas tree, you could make your own stick tree made from small fallen branches and even decorate it with Holly.
Mash it up!
There is every reason to decorate with no style or colour theme in mind and just display every colour, pattern, bauble, festive shape and figurine to any Christmas tree topper you want. Christmas is for you and your family and can be as fun and crazy as you want it to be. So why not break the rules and mash up your decor in your very own style?
