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. The whole tree with lights assembles in a snap — and then it’s ready to be decked out with all your favorite Christmas ornaments. Wesley Pine artificial Christmas trees are perfect as a primary tree, or as secondary tree for another room in the home.

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.

Christmas Mantel Ideas from Jenny of Everyday Occassions

A cozy, nature-inspired mantel by Jenny of Everyday Occassions

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.

Jenny is an entertaining expert who lives in Kansas City, Missouri, as well as the author of the blog Everyday Occasions. One look at her table settings and menus, and you’re sure to want an invitation to her next soirée. We challenged Jenny to style, not a table setting, but a cozy, fireplace mantel in her family room. Here, she shares with us her gorgeous Christmas mantel ideas.

For the Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge, I transformed my mantle into a Cozy Snow Dusted Fireside Escape. I tend to decorate during the holidays using natural materials when at all possible. I love the look of brown craft paper wrapped packages, burlap ribbon, pinecones, and fresh greenery. In the past, I have gravitated toward using a lot of white and gold for decorating the holidays that resulted in a sophisticated look, but since we’ve had our daughter, Emma, I’ve made a turn to the more cheerful and traditional colors.
