There are many ways to decorate your home for the holiday season. Some ideas are to use heirloom ornaments, create a cohesive look, and use greenery. There are also many different ways to use lanterns. You can anchor them in galvanized washingtubs or plant ivy. Lanterns are a great way to introduce the seasonal decorating theme into your home. You can also decorate the front door with festive decorations. If you want a red carpet feel, you can use a tartan fabric runner. To keep the runner in place, use heavy-sided tape.
Make your own tassels
Tassels are a fun way to add a pop of color to any room. Tassels can be made with any type of thread, such as twine, ribbon, or floss. You can also use beads to add a little bling to the tassels.
Tassels can also be made to hang from your keychain or doorknob. First, make a loop of yarn. You will need approximately 48 inches worth of yarn or thread. You can use a longer length thread if you want a longer tassel. Fold the thread in half, and then twist the other end. Once the twisted end has been gathered, you can begin weaving in the second end.
Tassels can be hung from many things, such as furniture knobs, bookcases and keys in drawers. They can also be used as drapery accents. Tassels can brighten up your home for the holidays with their festive charm.
Use heirloom ornaments
The use of heirloom ornaments can be a wonderful way to add a personal touch to Christmas decorations. These treasured pieces can be used to create family traditions or simply to make the holidays more memorable. You can decorate with family heirlooms such as a special platter or bowl that has been passed down through the generations.
Another option is to place your collection in places that are not easily accessible. This will add sparkle and shine. These are great places to display your mercury glass ornaments, for example. These can be displayed both year-round and for a limited time each season. You should not fluff them too much as it can cause the display to be overwhelming. You can also add greenery to your vase. Make sure to trim them to fit in the vessels and fill half of them with a mix of greenery and red holly berries. This palette can be echoed by hanging wreaths with red-green colors.
Create a unified look
When decorating home for Christmas, keep in mind that the colors should be complementary to each other. While red and green are traditional festive colors, these colors can be combined with many other colors. These colors can also be used in combination with white, silver, or gold. A great way to make your holiday decorating scheme look unique is to use different tones of rich greens and reds, and to mix and match them to add interest to the room.
Create a theme throughout the entire home. You can choose a specific color or ornament as your theme. This creates a seamless transition from room to room. The same principle applies to Christmas trees, which can be decorated in different styles or colors.
The light fixture in your dining room can also be a statement. Liz Marie Galvan styled her dining room chandelier with pine branches and faux fruits. A large, colorful wreath will draw attention towards a hanging light fixture. You can also use themed greenery for the front door.
One of the oldest traditions is to use fresh greenery in holiday decorating. Evergreens have been a part of winter festivals since ancient times, symbolizing hope and everlasting life. There are some things you should be aware of when choosing your greenery.
First, not all greenery can be used indoors. Choose plants that are hardy and able to survive in a home’s climate. Pines, firs, cedars, and other southern evergreens are better suited for indoor use, as they retain their needles best under warm interior temperatures. However, broadleaf evergreens and spruces are better suited to outdoor use. Boxwood can also be used to make a wreath. It has a fine texture and a pleasant smell.
Greenery can be a great way to give your home a festive vibe. First of all, choose plants that fit the style of your home. Cypress, pinecones, and magnolia all make lovely additions to your holiday decorations. Another option is to hang wreaths on your windows. Moreover, you can fill urns with fresh greenery clippings. For a festive touch, you can spray-paint thin branches with red paint.
Work with your existing decor
While you can’t match all of your decorations with your Christmas decorations, you can find Christmas decor that fits in with your existing design. You can make your home more appealing to potential buyers by doing this. This is best achieved by keeping your decorations small and not covering large areas of your home. For instance, you can use silver and gold accents to match your soft white and ivory color scheme.
You can make a wreath using florist wire and greenery if you don’t have a lot of greenery. To create a cohesive look, make sure you arrange the needles in the same direction. Attach the wreath to the florist tape and tie it with a bow. A wreath can add seasonal flair to your interior design and will help draw attention to existing light fixtures. For a festive touch on the mantel, you can use vases to create a garland. You can also stack paperbacks to make a paperback Christmas tree.
