If you are getting ready for Christmas, it’s important to decorate in order to prepare for this holiday season. You may use the same decorations on an annual basis, yet you are finally realizing it might be time to change things around. Using a Christmas tree, stockings on the wall, and a wreath on the door, are all standard items. This year, you may want to do something a little different. Here are 10 simple and stylish Christmas decorating ideas that you can use in your home, and outside of your home, that will make this holiday season even more special.
Make A Coffee Filter Garland
Most of the garlands that you hang during Christmas are going to be made of flowers. However, you can do something different. If you are a coffee lover, you can simply combine multiple coffee filters together, preferably of different colours, to create your own stylish garlands.
Create Garland Accents
If you have multiple rooms in your home, plus a staircase, you may want to hang garlands along the top edges and railings. This will make this festive season even better. You can use either real branches or those that are plastic that you can get at a local store, and connect them all together.
Make A Copper Pipe Candleholder
If you work with metal on a regular basis, such as plumbers do, you will likely have copper pipe lying around. You can connect the different pieces together, forming a brass looking candleholder that you can design in a unique and innovative way.
Sweater Christmas Trees
If you know how to knit, or even crochet, you can make tiny stockings. It is also possible to knit together tiny scarfs. With these materials, you can then connect and together, starting with a wide base, and move them up closer together to the top. All of this can be stapled together, or even included, and it’s a good idea to use red and white materials. You can also bypass the knitting by simply purchasing tiny scarfs, or pieces of material, and create the same tiny trees.
Black Paper Tablecloth
Although black is not a festive colour by any means, it will certainly accentuate all of the dishes and silverware that you are placing on your kitchen table. You can decorate this with place cards with the names of every guest that will be with you during the Christmas season. It’s also very easy to clean up as you will simply remove the plates and crumble the paper into a ball. It will be the easiest cleanup you have ever done using a large piece of black paper as a tablecloth.
Handmade Wooden Candleholders
People that cut trees for a living, or if you have kindling outside, you can easily make a wooden candleholder. Simply choose a smaller piece of wood, perhaps a long branch, and cut it into 6-inch pieces. In the centre, you can easily core this out with the drill in your garage, and then place red candles in the centre. You must be careful as wood can be flammable, so you will probably use them for decorative purposes only.
Knit Some Stockings
If you know how to knit sweaters, you will likely know how to knit stockings. It is recommended that you do this long before the Christmas season arrives. You can also put the names of the people on them that will be spending Christmas with you. It’s a great gift that everyone will appreciate.
