We love this time of year and all of the traditions that come with it. Decorating the house – inside and out – is a favorite activity that can sometimes last throughout the month of December. If you’re like us, we keep adding decorations as we go when we see neat ideas. Here are a few easy and unique Christmas decorating ideas from HouseBeautiful that you could add to your home this season!
Tiny Tree Centerpiece
What an easy and beautiful centerpiece! Buy a small, real tree and tie a festive bow at the top for a natural decoration in the middle of your table!
Hand-Strung Gingerbread Cookies
Once you’re done baking for Santa, leave a few extra cookies to make a strand of gingerbread garland. Ribbon and scissors required!
It’s always tough to find a place for all of the holiday cards. Attaching them to your stairway garland is a perfect way to display the festive notes!
What a simple and easy way to add a little Christmas to each room of your house. Buy festive tassels and hang on doors and knobs throughout your home.
Hanging Candy Canes
Love this idea, especially if kids are in the house (hang them high, though). Wrap candy canes with ribbon and hang from windows or mantles for easy decor.
If you have multiple trees in your house and one happens to be in the kitchen, why not make all of the ornaments edible? Cookies strung with ribbon, popcorn garland, hanging fruit, etc. Love this idea!
