It’s time to add the sparkle and warmth of the holiday season to your indoors. Here are some fun Christmas decorating ideas to help you add a little bit extra to your indoor holiday décor.
Art Glass Glow
Have a favorite vase or set of decorative glass bottles or bowls? Gently drop in some battery operated Christmas lights for a wonderful glow anywhere you need it. You can use clear, double-sided tape if you have a longneck vase or bottle. A project like this looks great by the mantle, or on your holiday table setting.
Holiday Glittery Greens
Add some sparkle to your floral arrangements and centerpieces by bringing some branches or evergreen springs. Grab some silver, copper or gold spray paint and spray the branches or springs evenly. You can also use ornamental grasses or really anything in your garden. Be sure you follow the proper safety procedures!
Affordable Holiday Floral Arrangements
Fresh flowers make for a beautiful and wonderfully scented holiday setting. But fresh flowers are often expensive. You can save some money by buying only one or two bunches of fresh flowers and adding and mixing them into evergreen branches and cuttings from your very own garden or wooded area. In this case, a little goes a long way.
Festive Staircase and Entryway
Add fresh or artificial garlands to your staircase railing and around the inside of your entryway door for a welcoming entrance AND exit. You can use pine or evergreen-like garlands or you can make your own out of thick ribbons, beaded garlands or anything your imagination can conjure up! Don’t want to add any tacks or marks on your railing or entryway? Be sure to use Command hooks…they rock for decorating for the holidays.
Kissing balls are wonderful decorating motifs. You can add a kissing ball of evergreens and mistletoe to your entryway to be traditional. You can also place kissing balls in-between your swags of garland to bring an even more festive feel to your indoor décor. Another way to use kissing balls is to add them to decorative bowls and vases as indoor holiday topiaries.
Candles add a wonderful glow to any table setting or room. Using real candles can cause dangerous situations, so please be sure to use candles properly and keep them away from any other objects. For the same look but much safer, try using LED flameless candles to help set the mood. You can use them in places that you can’t use regular candles and the glow is romantic and soft.
