7 Christmas Decorating Ideas

Ok, it’s time to decorate for Christmas. I know it’s exhausting, but the kids sure like it, and that includes the grown-up kids. So on with the traditions and get out the decorations. Here are seven Christmas decorating ideas to get you started.


If you are seeking new ideas for your tree, something as simple as some new ribbon will brighten up your tree ornaments without breaking the bank. When it comes to decorating the tree, remember that lights can be repaired reasonably easily nowadays. Watch this video for some pointers to repair your Christmas lights.


The banister is a must for holiday decorating. It continues the Christmas ambiance throughout the home and makes the whole house feel cheerier. Try wrapping pre-lit, faux garland, and ribbon around the handrails.


If you have a hearth, it has got to at least have stockings hung on the mantle – keeping in mind all safety precautions of course. If you need some ideas for decorating the hearth for Christmas, check out Pinterest, there is an endless amount of Christmas mantle decorating ideas to inspire you.


A wreath is a must for welcoming holiday guests. The possibilities are endless for what you can use to adorn your front door. Traditional evergreen wreaths are always a good option or consider something unusual like a painted frame or a pair of antique ice skates with some embellishment to make your door festive. Pinterest is a great resource for the Christmas wreaths idea.


If you really want to go all out on the front door area, a garland is a beautiful concept to adorn your entryway. Evergreen garland is classy and can be easily added to, or you can go for something out of the ordinary like a huge amount of colourful Christmas balls wired together.


You can take your doorway décor a step further by decorating the porch area if you have the space. Consider putting out an antique pair of ski’s or an antique sled with a beautiful ribbon on it.
