The Christmas tree is just the start. This holiday season, make your entire home — from the front porch to the kitchen — look and feel as festive as possible with these jolly decorating ideas. Because if you can’t live in the North Pole, you might as well pretend.
1 : String Up a Starry Sky
A mix of paper, metal, and wood stars in various sizes and shapes hung with twine acts as a three-dimensional gallery wall. You can leave it up all winter!
2: Hang Mini Wreaths
The more, the merrier, especially when it comes to Christmas décor.
3: Winterize Your Porch
The inside of your home is packed with the season’s magic, from the well-dressed Christmas tree to the bustling fireplace. For even more magic, add galvanized planters with mini trees — real or fake.
4: Sprinkle In Silver and Red
Walk into a kitchen wonderland all winter long thanks to poinsettias, glitzy tabletop trees, and a festive banner.
5: Set a Casual Table
Swap in folded tea towels for placemats and napkins. They work just as well — and they’re often cheaper! Colorful tumblers can step in for vases too.
6: Draw on Snowflakes
Use a washable-paint marker to add fluttery flakes to a mirror. Festive stockings — attached to a faux garland — and a tassel basket hold plenty of goodies.
7: Create a Hot Cocoa Bar
Give your bar cart a seasonal makeover with tabletop trees, a customized wood sign, cute cups, and an assortment of warm beverages.
