12 Fun & Easy Holiday Decor Ideas
It’s time to get into the holiday spirit! Decorating your home will immediately fill you with good cheer—unless your current decor options are more ho-hum than ho-ho-ho. But don’t turn into a Scrooge just yet! We came up with 12 fun and easy holiday decor ideas that are simple, yet statement-making. Try out a few, or try them all—you and your home will be in a festive mood in no time!
Hang Festive Art
Choose some pieces that make you jolly and have them custom-framed so you can pick out the perfect mat and frame combination for your home. When the holidays are over, simply swap out the pictures with other custom-framed art in the same size!
Take a cue from Jack Frost
Winter’s color palette of pale blue, white, and silver looks just as good indoors as it does outdoors! Make it feel festive with star shaped decor, string lights, and presents in the same palette.
Bring the outdoors in
Evergreen clippings, berries, and even winter fruits can make a stunning display for your table or a mantel. (If your display is within reach of little ones or pets, just make sure your greenery choices are non-toxic!)
Embrace modern opulence
Rich, forest green and elegant gold against a neutral backdrop creates a sophisticated holiday style that doesn’t involve any plastic reindeer. Layer in sumptuous textures and custom-framed art to complete the look.
During the holidays, plaid is often the star of the show, but we think gingham deserves some time in the spotlight! To avoid a summery feel, choose a fabric with a deeper color (such as burgundy or forest green) and accessorize with other wintry accents.
Go for the gold
Gold accents add a touch of luxury to your holiday decor. Try adding a metallic wreath (if you’re crafty, you can spray paint your own), gold candlesticks, or custom-framed holiday art in elegant gold frames.
Let it snow
Use winter weather as inspiration for your decor: dust a wreath with a generous helping of fake snow, showcase a charming snow globe, and add in other decorative accents in icy silvers and winter whites.
Sometimes bigger is better! If you’re working with a limited budget or a limited amount of space, opt for one showstopper piece that will have a big impact, like this robust wreath. You’ll still feel festive without breaking the bank or letting the holidays take over your home!
A mini display is fun to create and invites people in for a closer look. Don’t worry, you don’t need to create a whole winter village! Even just a figurine or two and a few bottlebrush trees makes for a charming display with vintage appeal.
Let it glow!
Twinkling lights capture the warmth and magic of the holiday season. Try stringing some along a mantel, winding them around a railing, or making a beautiful display with glass bell jars. We like battery powered versions for their ease of use and safety.
Leave them hanging
Get creative with ornaments (or other small objects like pine cones or jingle bells) and string them up. Choose a variety of sizes and shapes for a varied look and tie them to a rustic branch or a dowel rod for a more modern look.
There’s nothing wrong with embracing a traditional look for the holidays! Go all out with a palette of red and green, with plenty of evergreen boughs, pinecones, and holly berries. And if grandma’s plastic reindeer make you happy, give them a place of pride!
