You know about Christmas trees and lights, but there’s so much more to Christmas decor! From DIY projects to clever decorating shortcuts, we’ve got the inside scoop on the best ways to build your own winter wonderland. Take your hall-decking to the next level!

Get Creative With Your “Ornaments”

Just because something isn't a "real" ornament doesn't mean that it won't look great on your tree! Why stick to baubles and trinkets when you can personalize your Christmas tree with unique "ornaments" like Christmas cards, photo frames, and party decorations?

Make Yourself a Fireplace

Nothing says "Christmas" like relaxing with the family around a roaring fire. And where are you supposed to "hang the stockings with care" if not over the fireplace? If you don't have a fireplace in your home, Christmas is your excuse to make one. No, don't light your house on fire — just craft a fireplace out of construction paper or felt.

Wrap it Up!

Gifts may not be the reason for the season, but they're a big part of it. That's why wrapping paper feels so appropriate for Christmas—and why you should consider wrapping up some things in your home besides gifts. Framed art, storage boxes, even books—all can become temporary holiday decorations. When Christmas rolls around, you can unwrap them!

Hire the Pros

If you’re serious about beating the neighbors with your light show this year, then you may want to call in some reinforcements, say the pros at Christmas Designers. Professional design and Christmas-light hanging can take your home’s holiday cheer over the top, and it will save you from having to climb any ladders.

Invest in Holiday Booze

A tasteful bar cart can be a wonderful interior decorating touch, and the Christmas season is the perfect time for seasonal drinks like eggnog. Put the two together, and you have the perfect reason to invest in some attractive bottles of Yuletide booze. Look for green and red bottles, peppermint flavors, and other seasonally appropriate choices.
Get creative! You don’t have to limit yourself to the ideas laid out here. Christmas is a wonderful time to express yourself and get into the spirit of the holidays.
