Grab the garland and get ready for wreaths as we are going to share some wonderful ideas for your front door, mantel, mail box, etc. with a twist on tradition with handmade wreaths which can be used inside or outside. Welcome your guests in a unique style.
Here are some of the latest ideas which you can try this holiday eve:
Christmas décor will never be complete without a fresh garland. Keep a simple and clutter free foyer. Use cedar garland and satin ribbons to give a classic touch to your room. You can also use some mercury glass ball garland if you like to give it a little sparkle.
You can make some pillow covers at home from old clothes or cotton napkins or can buy some from the market/online for a classic décor of your house. The pillow covers can be used for multiple seasons.
Hang your flocked wreath on the front door to welcome the guests and you can also pair with brass door hardware. Incorporate it with some greenery with faux magnolia green and gold wreaths for a hit of color. The combination of warm and cool metals against some green will be loved by all.
Light up the Christmas season with an array of paper luminaries and line them up along the front walkway, driveway and on the porch for a bright classic display which will be simple and affordable to pull off. Use premade luminaries in bulk or make some using white paper bags, pebbles and powered LED candle lights.
Hang a DIY advent calendar on a ladder rather than opening a flimsy cardboard box. Use conceals treats, toys, craft bags and messages from Santa to decorate the ladder which you can fill again next year.
Layers and Layers:
Take objects and ornaments of different shape, size and height and start decorating them by hanging oversized ones and building up the table with tall candlesticks. Hang a garland of olive branches on the mantel.
Play with Patterns:
Use polka dots and checks on a flowery filigree rather than limiting yourself to matching the ribbon to the paper. Create and play with patterns for a classic décor of your house.
The simple Christmas decoration is a classic way to spruce up the front yard of your house for the holiday season. You do not need to have a lot of supplies for decorating a mailbox. With an abundance of bouquet winter plants, top off a square brick mailbox and with an arrangement of bouquet winter plants, fill a wide, shallow planter. Use spare ornaments and finish it up with a satin bow.
For a classic look use a champagne bucket as a centerpiece and add some greenery on the buffet. You can also use pinecone theme to match up with the evergreens. A wood slice with a pinecone is a thing now.
Decorate with Candles:
Use candle lights instead of a real deal to avoid a serious fire hazard and get a classic Christmas old fashioned charm. Candles will give your home the natural finishing touch to an already decorated house.
Use a mix of metal, paper and wood stars in various shapes and sizes and hung them with twine as a three dimensional gallery wall and leave it up throughout the winter. String up a starry sky.
Set up a casual table for the dinner by swapping in folded tea towels for placements and napkins. You can also use colorful tumblers as flower vases for a classic finishing touch.
For a perfect classic look, opt for non – traditional colors. Mix up the metals with retro elements rather than typical red and green palette and watch out the elegant final look which impresses everyone on the table. Make sure to keep things clean. Pair of gold votive lamps will be a good option for a finishing touch.
Decorate your house with yellow accents and fresh citrus to get the sunny feel inside on the table and have warm atmosphere when it is freezing cold outside. Incorporate some yellow décor and give your home a classic look. You can also match up the décor with different shades of yellow by mixing lemons and oranges.
This season try to go neutral inside the house rather than going bold to make a décor statement. Use a simple garland on the mantel in the dining room to get an insanely chic look for the simplest neutral décor.
Use a wire, floral string and pine to create a minimal DIY holiday arrangement. You just have to bend the wire into letters and cut. Make sure the size and height of all the letters are same. Wrap the pieces of pine around the wire letters using floral wire and tie them to the string.
Red, Silver & Green:
Combine the tree traditional colors for a classic mantel. Compliment a wreath of pine, cypress and Fraser fir with matching garlands. You can also weave silver beaded garland throughout the greenery and hang oversized pinecones of silver color. Use rose and red ribbons for a touch up of red color.
Decorate your statues during the holidays with wreaths around their neck and hang ornaments from their antlers to give it a classic and rustic look.
Around the doorway dress up the traditional boxwood garland with trailing ribbons and silver ornaments. Simply cut the different lengths of ribbon, string the balls and knot the lengths before attaching to the frame of your door.
Mix the seeded eucalyptus, spruce and magnolia for a relaxed classic garland. Tie a blue ribbon around a cluster of magnolia leaves and add a little drama to the garland. Use this idea on the staircase and leave a memorable impression on everyone.
Use loose magnolia leaves to create a simple arrangement for your dinner table. Fill a bowl with few magnolia leaves and use mercury glass ornaments for the finishing touch and your décor is all set to rock the party.
Rather than simply swaging your garland along the railing, create some vertical interest and frame the door by wrapping the posts of your porch with garlands as well. You can use a combination of 3 wreaths on your door.
Hang with Care:
A good Christmas is one where a child’s stocking is hung carefully for Santa. Hang up the stockings this year from an unsuspecting place and impress the kids in the house or play a game and let them find their stockings on their own. You can also hang the stockings on repurposed table legs on top of a piano.
String the Cookies:
Use cinnamon apple sauce dough for a ginger bread garland which will look good enough to eat. String it up and increase the beauty of your house with this delicious garland.
Use faux garland and mix it up with real greenery, weaving in pine cones and a matching thick ribbon. The garland can cover the railing of your staircase in the living room. You can also add some check ribbon for a classic finishing touch.
Let It Snow:
If you are skilled with a crochet needle then stitch up the snowflake coasters for party guests’ drinks and impress your guests with your DIY skills. The idea and the process are very simple and easy to make. Use it for an unusual touch on your Christmas table.
Decorate an evergreen garland with ornaments and berry branches resembling snowflakes and pinecones. Drape greenery along a doorway or staircase hand rail and hang the ornaments from ribbon loops to create a classic and elegant entryway.
Weave A Spell:
Create simple ornaments by weaving high contrast ribbons and layering the lengths within mini embroidery hoops and using a double stick tape around the inner hoop to hold the ribbon in place.

Movie Night Holiday Décor:
Nothing can beat watching the holiday favorites with friends and family in the comforts of home for a movie buff. A classic, glam and festive private screening with theatre style snacks is enough to get everyone in the holiday spirit.
Classic Coastal Chandelier:
Light furnishing and fixtures are a perfect place to add some extra holiday cheer. This year try using pine branches around a chandelier’s base, drape a burlap ribbon and add glass ornaments for a classic and rustic approach.
Glass Ornament Pendants:
This year bring the texture and color to the front porch with a grouping of clear glass or plastic ornaments filled with everyday organic materials. Use clear glass fill-able ornaments of various shapes and sizes and fill it up with moss, dried fruits, lavender, cinnamon sticks, etc.
Use a PVC pipe wreath and flaunt a classic take on a traditional holiday staple. PVC pipes are available in variety of sizes. Once you get the desired size, you are ready to start on the front door display.
Dress Up the Dining Room:
Get the dining room ready because a fully set table is a signal that the party is about to start. Slip in the clippings of 2 or 3 types of greenery in the base of your chandelier and hang wreaths accented with classic blue and white ribbons throughout the room.
Decorate your display wall by embellishing with fresh greenery and ornaments. Do not forget your console. Lay loose the greenery along the table and place the ornaments in the vacant spaces and your classic decorative display is good to rock the holiday eve and impress the guests with your creative skills.
All in the Cards:
This year try something new with a space saving alternative cardboard made hanging Christmas tree that can display the cards which you receive from your friends and family member.
