Insanely Easy Christmas Decoration Ideas You Will Adore!
It’s now the beginning of the Christmas scramble! Believe me; I know all about it. Luckily, I’m organised enough to have easy access to my Christmas decorations, and the tree was up in no time at all. I moved house this year, and I wasn’t sure if my previous Christmas decor would translate in the new house and luckily, it did! The tree was a perfect size. We are still putting the place together, but I love it. So, I thought it was high time I shared my easy Christmas decoration ideas that you can use in your home.
My everyday living room decor is romantic and pink, so the first step is to remove any decor that doesn’t fit. I decided to add some pink details to the Christmas decorations so I left a couple of pieces to tie it all together.
Remove everyday decor or the place will look cluttered.
I decided to utilise some things I have in my home and created a little tutorial for you. If you have any candle/hurricane lanterns in your home, you can try this DIY!
Use What You’ve Got:
You Will Need:
- Hurricane Lamp
- Approx 2kg of Epsom Salt
- House Decoration (Mine is from the Chamonix range at John Lewis)
- Little Christmas Trees
- Pour the Epsom salt into the lantern. I used Epsom salt because I use it all the time in the bath and buy it in bulk. It looks like little snow crystals!
- Place the little house decoration in and arrange your trees around.
- Boom! Finished!
See? Insanely easy!
Create a vignette
If you have decorations that don’t fit on your tree or are designed to be displayed; create a little arrangement that’s pleasing to look at.
In front of the small hurricane lantern, I’ve added two small trees on top of a sleigh decoration. I found at John Lewis.
There’s a little snowball that I made using:
If you are going to make snowballs, ensure that you have a pot of salt and some pencils or skewers so you can skewer the polystyrene balls and leave them to dry standing up in the salt.
Behind the snowball are some mushrooms found at craft shops or florists.
Knitted Christmas Puddings are beautiful to display! If you’re not a knitter, you can find some great ones on eBay.
The rest of the decorations are decor that I’ve been collecting for approx 15 years.
Another Vignette On The Mantle
The mantle is a mixture of everyday decor and my Christmas collections. Candles play a big part in my festive decor; I love the warmth and scents they provide.
I also love storing cinnamon sticks in jar and opening the lid ever so slightly to release the scents and allow them to permeate the air.
Decorate The Tree
- I was so excited to discover this embroidery hoop ornament in John Lewis! It’s so delicate and it’s absolutely stunning.
- On the tree I’ve used DIY Spool ornaments, you can find the tutorial for this in the free Christmas Craft Magazine available here.
- Instead of tinsel (which can lead to fatalities if eaten by cats), I’ve used beaded garlands all around the tree.
- Candy canes are a great budget decoration for the branches!
- Don’t forget to incorporate a mixture of ornament sizes all over your tree. If an ornament is heavy, ensure to bend your branch upwards to keep it secure and avoid breakages.
- Remove everyday decor
- Utilise What You have – create a DIY Lantern (you could use ornaments and fairy lights in lanterns too)
- Use Florist Accessories
- Knit Christmas accessories or buy them from artisans on eBay or Etsy.
- Make Your Ornaments
- Decorate Using beads
- Buy some Candy Canes and hang on your tree
- If you have a large ornament and an artificial tree, make sure to bend the branch up to secure it to the tree.
