Embrace the season with a range of festive adornments. If you have DIY skills, consider making paper garlands with holly berries and gold accents. These could be hung on doorknobs or even from the Christmas tree.
Search your local fabric-and-trim shop for remnants of ribbon, rickrack and pom-pom fringe. Let tendrils cascade down a vase or frame for an Instagram-worthy display.
When dressing your home for Christmas, a little imagination is all you need. The smallest details can add the biggest impact. For example, a row of cheery gift-wrapped packages suspended on a wall is an easy and inexpensive way to dress a hallway or corridor. Use ribbon remnants, mini baubles, and scraps of faux foliage to create the display.
Give a table runner a modern look by arranging various tree-shaped objects in varying heights and textures. Dried citrus-like pomegranates can also dress tables, sideboards, or mantels for a high-impact display that won’t cost the earth. Bleach pine cones for a fresher feel, and then use them in a wreath or to decorate a table. Add cinnamon sticks to the mix, and you have a cozy, festive centerpiece that will smell as good as it looks.
Christmas terrariums are a fun way to dress up glass containers that you already have. Add Christmas decor like bottle brush trees, fake snow, and a mini deer to your terrarium to create a festive look. Alternatively, you can use Epsom salt to make your fake snow and give it a finishing touch with a ribbon bow.
