Easy Holiday Decoration Ideas

Dec 10 2013

'Tis the season for decorations. The holidays are upon us, which means there’s no better time to get those boxes out of storage and dust off your well-worn holiday décor. At this point most of our passed-down decorations are probably looking a little rough. If you’re looking for fresher, simpler décor to make your home more festive, then look no further. Here are our suggestions.

Shiny Ornament Display

Dust off ornaments that you already have laying around—and  that might not get the coveted Christmas tree position this year—and put them to good use. Place your vintage ornaments on a stand nested with leaves for an extra festive effect and stunningly simple centerpiece.

Bring the Outdoors, In

Lush outdoor holiday greenery draped inside is a simple and cheap way to invite warmth into your home this holiday season. Simply drape the greenery around the house (especially in doorways), and you’ll be creating an instant inviting atmosphere with a woodsy aroma.

Stylishly Suspended Ornaments

So maybe you’re an ornament hoarder and you have more than you know what to do with. Solution: put them to good use as a stylish ornament chandelier. A group of old-fashioned ornaments hung from the ceiling makes a whimsical chandelier and a festive touch to your holiday home décor.

Front Door Flair

Jingle bells—jingle all the way. All the way into your home that is. Make friends and family get into the holiday spirit as they enter your home. Simply tie big silver bells to your front door knob, and use a festive ribbon to complete the look. 

Silver Bell Décor

Since we’re on the silver bells kick, why not keep going with it? Add a little sparkling style to your living or dining room with an artful silver bell arrangement. Simply fill a snifter, candle holder, or other glass vase to the brim with an array of shiny silver bells.

Lighted Path

Create a lighted, festive path by stringing a banister with Christmas garland or lights. Either twirl it around the banister or attach it every few inches with ribbon or clear fishing line. Not only is your home emitting a soft, inviting glow, but you’re also adding that extra holiday flair.

After the simply stylish decorations are put in place, turn your attention to simply stylish door décor that can add a little convenience to the chaos that goes hand-in-hand with the holidays. An electronic door lock is the perfect addition to your home this holiday season. Not only will it look great on your front door, but it will also look great on your family and friends.
