Do you love glitter galore and twinkle lights? Do you like decking up your home ahead of festivities? If so, the holiday season is the ideal time to decorate your home and spread holiday cheer.
The year 2021 brings a lot to celebrate, especially after losing out on the year 2020 staying cooped up in one’s home. Whether you are welcoming fall or hoping to turn your home into a winter wonderland for Christmas, here are a few innovative festive decoration ideas that will get your creative juices flowing.
DIY painted ceramic plates as wall decoration
For adding a little out-of-the-box touch to your festive decoration this year, you can bring out all of your old and new ceramic plates or even mugs. You can choose your favorite Christmas character or holiday scene and start painting it on the ceramic plates. Let your plates dry and then hang them up on the wall.
You can also paint mugs in the same way and other kitchen essentials. It can be a fun family activity if you have kids around or a way to showcase your amazing painting skills.
Holiday card display
Holiday card display is one of the most popular Christmas décor ideas, especially since people haven’t got the time to travel much in the last year (thanks to COVID-19!). If you have pictures of your past holidays lying around, this is a good way to display them and turn them into a wall decoration.
You can grab some clothespins and barker’s twine to make this easy decoration. Dedicate a wall for this decoration and the best part is that you can display this year-long. You can even keep adding or taking down pictures.
What’s more, you can turn this wall into a cozy reading or chilling corner by hanging some twinkling, fairy lights.
Drape a strand of evergreen garland from your chandelier
Most people are in favor of bringing greenery and nature into their homes. It is either in the form of fresh flowers and plants or using dried flowers as Christmas decorations. If you believe in the traditional red and green colors for the holiday season, you can get a strand of evergreen garland and hang it from your chandelier. It will make your chandelier appear sophisticated. However, if you do not wish to take on the hassle of caring for a fresh plant, you can get dried flowers and plants to hang from your chandelier. Dried flowers are already frozen in time and will last you for years. Moreover, you can let it hang for a few more days even after the festivities are over.
Dried flower wreaths for your door and mantelpiece
Typically, people would get wreaths to hang for the festive season made of fresh flowers. Even though you can still do that, the trend today is to get dried flower wreaths because they last for years. Also, they can be reused for several years and there is no need to worry about taking care of them.
The best part is that you can find dried flower wreaths made of a mix of myriad flowers, plants, and grasses. They give out a soothing aroma. Alternatively, you can make a customized wreath to suit your unique style and preferences.
Wreaths made of dried flowers are lightweight and you can easily hang them on your door, cupboard knobs or keep them on your mantelpiece. It can act as a statement piece for whoever walks through your door.
Cover the stairs with twinkle lights
The festive season calls for your home to be turned into a bright haven of happiness and excitement, especially after dark. This is why a lot of people are opting for covering their stairs and even chairs with twinkle lights. These lights are not only for your Christmas tree, but you can cover anything you want with them like garland it around a big mirror, the mantle, and so on.
Dried fruits and flowers as tree ornaments
Along with Christmas dried flowers, a lot of people are also using dried fruits like oranges to add a vintage, cool vibe to the overall Christmas décor. You can even use dried cranberries for garlands and wreaths.
The dried oranges and flowers can be tied using a string and designed into little ornaments that can be hung on the Christmas tree. This is a unique way to decorate for the festive season and not using the usual tree decorations like metallic bells and so on.
Dried flower candles on the dining table
Swap out the traditional red and white candles in favor of candles incorporated with dried petals of flowers. This gives the candles a burst of color and it can appear fantastic as a centerpiece for the dining table or the coffee table. You can also place these candles on the mantelpiece.
Dried flower petal confetti instead of snow
If you wish to be eco-friendly this holiday season, you can opt for using dried flower petal confetti all around your house and near the Christmas tree instead of snow. This will add life and color to your Christmas decorations and will appear stunning in the photos. Also, they’re easy to clean and you can simply brush them away or store them to be used again next year.
Since dried flowers are available in so many varieties, you can easily find the flowers and colors that you want for your festive décor.
It is never too early to start planning for the upcoming holiday season. You want to make sure that your home’s decoration looks the best and it is the envy of your neighbors. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired by the aforementioned ideas and also be swayed to jump on the bandwagon of the dried flower trend.
