Decorating Ideas For Christmas

Here are some Christmas decorating ideas you can use or think about when you start getting your home ready for the holiday season. Remember to be creative and have fun with your decorations. You do not always have to use the same decor each year. Mixing things up a bit is fun. There are no rules when it comes to decorating for Christmas so don't be afraid to go all out if you want.

Put up an all white tree this year instead of the traditional green one. Use white lights and glitz it up with gold, red, and silver, copper and metallic colored ornaments and bulbs.

Use over-sized stockings instead of the small ones. Hang them on the walls or around the fireplace or mantle. If you have lots of stockings to stuff and would rather use the small ones try hanging them in a new place this year like on the tree or around a window.

Deep blues with silver can also be used in place of red and green. Use all blue lights for the tree and decorate it with all sliver bulbs and beads.

Put bows and poinsettias on the tree along with small gingerbread men and little Santa figurines. You can use any ornament you like. It does not always have to be bulbs.

Go all vintage this year with decorations from the 1950's.. Set out vintage Christmas cards and or tins with the rest of your vintage pieces.

Decorate your light fixtures with a simple strand of garland or really do it up with lights and small ornaments.

Using glitter is always nice. Sprinkle a little on your stockings and around the base of your tree. Or on your mantle or with candles.

Frame your favorite wrapping paper in double sided frames and hang it on the walls. You can also frame foliage this way or try using some Christmas cards. Use glitter here too if you want.

Wrap gifts with plain brown paper and decorate the paper with bold colored fabric ribbons and home made bows. Big over-sized bows. Use a few basic colors like silver and red or make each one different with as many colors as you like.

No matter how you choose to decorate your home for Christmas this year the most important part to remember is have fun and enjoy the time with your loved ones.
