Shopping, cooking and last-minute prep to ready the house for holiday visitors – there’s a lot of work to be done before the big day. So, let us help take some of the holiday decorations duties off your plate with the Wesley Pine Quick-Set Christmas tree from our Home Accents Holiday collection.

If you’re looking for a Christmas tree to bring convenience and joy to your home this holiday season, take a look at these attractive pre-lit Christmas trees. They’re available with clear or multicolored Christmas lights, and the light plugs are located right inside the tree pole for easy access.

DIY Christmas Wreaths With Martha Stewart Arctic Ornaments

Posted by: on November 29th, 2012 | Make A Comment

 

Christmas wreaths are a simple yet beautiful way to spread the holiday spirit all throughout the house, indoors and out. In addition to decorating doors and windows, wreaths look wonderful over the mantel, lying on a tabletop, and we’ve even seen a few hanging from chandeliers.

In this video Martha Stewart and Hannah Millman show you how to create your own signature wreath using ornaments from Martha’s Arctic collection. The Arctic ornaments come in shades of blue and silver with shiny, matte and glitter finishes. You’ll also find snowflake, polar bear, penguin and icicle ornaments sprinkled into this wintry mix.

This is a great little holiday craft project that requires little more than Christmas wreaths, some thin-gauge hobby wire and a few of your favorite Martha Stewart Living Christmas ornaments.

A Star Wars-inspired Christmas tree by Ashley and Greg Brown of 7th House on the Left | For The Home Depot Style Challenge

 

In our Style Challenge series, we ask some of our favorite bloggers from around the web to surprise us with their ideas for creating a stylish and functional space using Home Depot products as a starting point.

We were anxious to see what Ashley and Greg Brown would come up with when we sent them a big box of Home Depot Christmas decorations for our Holiday Style Challenge. On their blog, 7th House on the Left, Ashley and Greg write about renovating and decorating their home. But for us, they show us their geek sides by creating a Star Wars-themed Christmas tree. Greg explains how they came up with the Star Wars theme. And check out their clever ideas on how to give ordinary Christmas ornaments a Star Wars treatment.

Everyone who knows me knows I’m what you might call a “professional geek.” I’m a web developer, Doctor Who and Star Wars are at the very top of my “favorite franchises” list, and one of my favorite pastimes is tweaking my computer. So when Home Depot sent us this bonus item in our “Mystery Box,” we knew right where it needed to be … my office.

In our Style Challenge series, we ask some of our favorite bloggers from around the web to surprise us with their ideas for creating a stylish and functional space using Home Depot products as a starting point.

For the Holiday Edition of the Style Challenge we invited Kate Riley of Centsational Girl to share her Christmas decorating ideas for her mantel. She offers us a gorgeous Christmas mantel that’s both elegant and homey. 

I was so excited to be one of the participants in this year’s Holiday Style Challenge and my mission was to create a beautiful mantel scene in my home. I’m a big fan of color but I was inspired this year to create a quieter setting, focused on a silvery winter palette with small touches of lime green.
