Make Your Own Holiday Wreath
Hanging a wreath on your front door spreads good cheer to everyone who visits. Wreaths can also be hung on walls, above doorways, and in windows. This year, instead of buying a pre-made wreath from your local craft store, why not make your own? Pinterest offers some great ideas. To make your own, you can use:
- extra ornaments
- natural elements, such as pine cones
- miniature holiday villages and/or figurines
- and just about anything else you can think of
Embrace Different Color Schemes
Red and green aren’t the only way to decorate. Shake things up (in a good way!) by choosing a new color palette this holiday season. Red and white, gold and white, silver and pale blue are all popular choices. Can’t decide on one or two colors? Try several! There really are no hard rules when it comes to holiday color schemes. You’re free to have as much fun with colors as you’d like.
Make a Hot Cocoa Bar
During the holidays, there’s nothing quite like a delicious, warm cup of hot chocolate. Set out mugs and toppings like mini marshmallows, candy canes, chocolate syrup and sprinkles, and whipped cream so your family and guests can create this ultimate holiday treat. Here’s a recipe for decadent slow cooker hot chocolate that we love. Decorate the bar using homemade signs or banners.
Hang Garland Everywhere
Hang garland (fresh, faux or both) with Command hooks to lend cheer to banisters, mantels, windows, and doorways. Add a festive touch by cutting extra-long strips of wide ribbon, tied into bows, and attached to the garland about three feet apart. Garland can be used indoors or out. Another great idea for decorating is holiday swag. Swag can be hung from porch lights, on walls and doors, and in windows.
Add Some Whimsical Touches
Like with all decorating, the details are everything. Consider adding some more whimsical touches to your space, such as with homemade signs or old-fashioned sleigh bells. The latter can be attached to your front doorknob. Strings of LED lights can be added to the walls or banisters. To add ambiance and glow, fill glass mason jars with fairy lights, and place on any surface. The key here is to make your space look inviting.
