7 Fun and Festive Christmas Decorating Ideas

Get every inch of your home into the holiday spirit with these creative ways to deck the halls.

Look Down

Instead of going the usual route and hanging greens on the banister, this blogger rested the garland on top of the steps.

Forgo the Garland in Favor of Candles

Instead of a garland, a great way to dress a mantel is to fill it with a mix of candlesticks — tall, small, mercury glass, crystal — and put a beautiful vase of flowers in their midst. Everything glitters. And instead of ivory candles, use red, cranberry, shades of green. That gives it another twist. Very festive!

Create the Christmas Aroma

Involve scents with decorating, too. If there's nothing in the oven, try lighting cinnamon or spice-scented candles.

Mix Metallics

For added holiday sparkle, use decorative accents in both silver and gold.

Make the Banister Festive

Banisters can be tricky to decorate. For a light, airy, and cheerful look, try stringing red and white paper bells together with fishing line. (Tip: Get creative with your decorations. We found these at a wedding supply store!)

Ribbons & Wrapping

Don't hold back when you're wrapping Christmas gifts. Make them exuberant! You don't have to limit yourself to matching the ribbon to the paper. Put polka dots and checks on a flowery filigree like this. So much more joyful. It's as much a gift as the gift itself.

Dangle Ornaments

Baubles and stars look just as good hanging from garland as they do on the tree.
