9 Christmas Decoration Ideas

Red, green, silver, gold or white, Christmas lends itself to so many decorating options. You can stick with the traditional Christmas colours or you can step away from traditional and do something unusual. Anything goes but here are some decorating ideas no matter what your colour palette or Christmas theme.

1. Christmas Tree

Everybody loves a Christmas Tree – make your Christmas tree the main feature of your room. It can be a beautiful real tree, fake tree or even a styled ‘tree’.

2. Wreath

Wreaths are great for the door but they can add an extra flair to indoors too, in fact, you don’t even need to stick with a circle shape – check out the candy cane wreath below.

3. Ornaments

Christmas baubles are fun and festive – you don’t only have to hang them on the tree – you can put them on some string to dangle across a doorway or you can put them into a jar as a table decoration. They’re very versatile and will immediately add to the Christmas spirit.

5. Flowers

Flowers are beautiful – no matter what the occasion – flowers will add a touch of class to your family Christmas get together. If you haven’t managed to get a bouquet of flowers then just use some greenery.

6. Candy

Candy is not just for eating – it can be used for some last minute decorating too – so long as you don’t have little hands sneaking it away when you’re not looking.

8. Pine Cones

Nip into the garden or local park and gather some pine cones. You can spray paint them gold or white or leave them as they are. Add them to a mason jar or lay them on a platter – pine cones are another versatile and easy Christmas decorating idea.
