Twelve Simple, Fun Home Decor Ideas for the Holidays

For many people, it feels like the holidays sneak up on you every year. For others, they are counting down the days starting on January 1st.

Regardless of where you fall on that scale, the holidays are quickly approaching. We want to help you with some fun and relatively simple decor ideas to help your family get into the spirit of the season.

12 Simple and Fun Ideas for Decorating During the Holidays

1) Christmas Card Trees

What do you do with all those Christmas cards you receive during the holiday season? You don’t want to throw them away because you know people took time to write kind messages. But you only have so much room to display them on your refrigerator, right?

Here’s the solution; make a Christmas card tree on your wall or above your fireplace. This honors the card givers and makes for great decor.

2) Smaller Christmas Trees

A lot of thought goes into choosing the perfect tree for your living room. Why limit your decor to a single tree? Adding smaller trees throughout your home adds extra holiday cheer while also giving you somewhere to put those ornaments that you just couldn’t quite fit on your big tree.

3) Chalkboard Santa Sign

Santa enjoys milk and cookies, but wouldn’t he also feel more welcome in your home with a personal note. A chalkboard sign lets your family tell Saint Nick how much you appreciate him while he enjoys his treats.

4) Embracing Plaid

‘Tis the season for wearing plaid. Why not incorporate the color scheme into your holiday season decor. You can use it in a number of ways:

  • Stockings
  • Napkins
  • Tablecloths
  • Ornaments
  • Accents
  • Throw pillows
  • Everything

5) Garland On the Headboards

You have made your house a holiday wonderland, but it’s not complete if you neglect the place you lay your head. Make sure you are getting into the Christmas season even while you’re sleeping by decorating your headboards with garland.

6) An Antique Trainset

Few things are more closely associated with toy stores during the holidays than model trains. You can take your holiday spirit to the next level with an antique train set rolling around your Christmas tree.

7) Decorating Railings

The handrails on your stairs, your porch railings, and banisters are begging to be decorated. They provide the perfect surface for being wrapped with garland and other decor.

8) Mittens Make Great Garland

Do you have an excessive number of old mittens? Maybe they have holes or have lost their matches, yet they are still taking up space in your drawers and closets.

It is time to put those misfit mittens to use. Turn them into garland to hang from your banisters or stair railings.

9) Gifts Doing Double Duty

Do you have more gifts than you have space for around the tree? Do you have a need for additional holiday-themed decor? Let those Christmas gifts do double duty as decoration.

Dress them up with pine cones, greenery, and twine, and display them on your walls, shelves, mantle, and other prominent places. Also, use wrapping paper that will make for great decorations.

10) Peppermint As Decor

Peppermint is as important to the holiday season as any type of candy. It is also the perfect color scheme to accent your holiday decor. Peppermint colors can be used for your table settings, tree ornaments, and to dress up your fireplace mantle.

As a bonus, if you use peppermints as part of the decor, you can eat them after the season.

11) Give Love to the Charlie Brown Tree

We know from A Charlie Brown Christmas that every type of Christmas tree deserves love. Your family will enjoy intentionally choosing a Charlie Brown tree or two to add to your holiday decor.

Bringing life and purpose to these special trees is symbolic of what the season is all about.

12) Upgrade Your Furniture
