Adding a touch of Christmas decor in your home doesn’t have to be a time consuming task. It’s easy. All you need are a few staple pieces to quickly create an intimate and cozy holiday atmosphere. Check out our top five easy and quick ways to bring some Christmas decor into your home.
Get a Christmas Door Mat
With all of the beautifully decorated homes adorned with exterior Christmas lights, I’m sure the thought of “going big” with your outdoor Christmas decor has crossed your mind. But you opted out on that idea because one, it’s time consuming and two you don’t have the energy. The next best thing—a Christmas door mat is a simple, yet cheerful holiday accent that will welcome your guests with Christmas cheer.
Hang Up a Wreath
Wreaths have been used as Christmas decor for hundreds of years. You can adorn the outside and inside of your home with them. Going for a simple look—try an evergreen wreath decorated with pine cones. If you’d like more “wow factor” then perhaps decorate your wreath with red bows, gold bells, and artificial flowers or choose a wreath in a less traditional color.
Wrap Your Bed in Christmas Themed Bedding
Don’t forget about your bedroom when decking out your home. From the East Coast to the Northwest, the winters can be brutal, so why not turn your bedroom in a cozy holiday retreat by adding some warm Christmas-themed bedding. It’s also the most optimal location in your home to feel the holiday cheer since you’ll be spending quite a bit more time inside of these four walls. Treat yourself to an extra warmth comforter to insert into your duvet cover and explore different textures, color, and prints that you typically wouldn’t use during the warmer months.
Dress Your Dining Room Table
A well-dressed dining room table is always in style and can easily transition from season to season. Adding Christmas decor accents will give you a great holiday look for your dining room—try adding little trees, garland, and Christmas table runners to create a festive table.
Place Candles Around the House
Candles are a great source of warmth, both literally and figuratively. Include them in your Christmas decor by placing multiple candles of all sizes around your home. This will create a festive ambience and when the sun sets, light your candles, and watch how your home glows with holiday cheer.
You can make decorating a group effort with your entire family or invite some friends over to help. When you’re finished, reward your helpers with a cup of hot cocoa, sit back, and enjoy their company. After all, what’s the holidays without friends and family.
