1. Deck Your Halls With Balls of Holly (No, Literally)
Collect holly, pine cones, sprigs, and needles from your local park, trail, or backyard to decorate your home. These winter plants are synonymous with the iconography of winter and Christmas, and they can give your entire house a wintery vibe. These can be turned into wreaths and garlands if you’re feeling crafty, or simply display them sitting on your shelves, in glass bowls, or in vases. Bringing nature into your home has the added benefit of making your house smell like a Christmas tree!
2. Display Your Holiday Cards
Transform your space into a heartwarming gallery of love and friendship by displaying Christmas cards you receive from friends and family. Create a dedicated holiday card wall or string up a line of twine and use clothespins to showcase the cards. This not only adds a personalised touch to your decor but also reminds you of the cherished bonds you share with your loved ones.
3. Background Yule Log
Turn your screens into Christmas decorations. When not in use, turn on yule logs on your TV or computer. This is a great ambient decoration. If your TV has access to YouTube, we recommend switching into a YouTube yule log livestream, which will play a never ending yule log. Alternatively, many streaming services, such as Netflix, have yule log videos to display. Some cable stations also show yule logs during the holidays.
4. Always Have Christmas Music Playing
One of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit is to have Christmas music playing in the background. Pop in a record or tune into your favourite radio station. If your favourite song comes on, your house might spontaneously turn into a Christmas sing-a-long.
5. Embrace Paper Crafts
Paper crafts are the backbone of amazing Christmas decorations. Using just plain copy paper, you can make snowflakes, garlands, snowmen, and much more. If you have any coloured paper in your home, you can even decorate your house with cut paper Santa Clauses, Reindeer, and Elves. This also makes the perfect holiday craft to do with kids!
