Cover your Silverware with Stockings
Covering your silverware with stockings would bring out the holiday spirit at your dinner table. You could opt for the classic red Christmas stockings, or you could go for green stockings as well.
Swap the Table Cloth
Replacing your Table cloth with a plaid blanket could add creativity to your dinner table without any hard work from your side.
DIY Leaf Garland
Gather your kids for a fun afternoon activity and make garlands out of green craft paper together. You could dress your fireplace, hallways, staircases, and much more with your DIY leaf garlands. For some added flair, you could add red jingle bells.
Let the holiday spirit shine in your living room by decorating your pillows. Sew velvety red cloth around a pillow or alternatively get a red pillow and wrap a white ribbon around it with a bow. Add some light greenery into the mix and enliven your living room with festivity.
Add Some Candies to Your Christmas Tree
Consider going easy on the red and green bells on your Christmas tree. Instead, opt to add some candy-colored ornaments to your Christmas tree. Peppermint Canes and Lollipops would definitely bring out some color from your tree.
Add fruits to Your Decorations
To give your home a more natural look, you can consider adding fruits like berries, apples, or limes instead of bulbs and bells to your leaf garlands and wreaths.
Adding Snowfall to Your Floors
You could simulate snowfall in your house by randomly placing sheepskin rugs or any other types of fluffy rugs around the house. Some great places to add it would be under the Christmas tree.
Display Christmas Cards
You must have received a lot of Christmas cards. If you haven’t thrown them out yet, you could display them in many different creative ways. You could place Christmas cards on the walls and shape them into a tree. Alternatively, you could hang them amongst your leaf garlands or wreaths.
