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.

Find the Wesley tree along with our complete selection of Christmas trees and holiday decorations online or at your local Home Depot store.

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.

One of the Most Amazing Outdoor Christmas Decorating Ideas Ever

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 sent a big box of Home Depot Christmas decorations to Ashley and Greg Brown of the blog 7th House on the Left. They came up with one of the most clever and amazing outdoor Christmas decorating ideas we’ve ever seen. Their attention to detail in this retro-TV Christmas yard art is impressive, and they explain how they did it, from start to finish. Ashley has the beginning of the story …

When the folks at The Home Depot asked us to be a part of the Holiday Style Challenge, I knew this was indeed going to be a challenge for an obsessive planner like me. It sounded like a fun challenge though, and it was the type of project we hadn’t tackled before, so we threw our hats in the ring! When we were assigned the front yard, we were really excited and anxious all at the same time. Last year, we were knee-deep in a huge kitchen renovation, and the year before, we were just moving in. This year is the first year we’ll have ever decorated the front yard for Christmas.

A beautiful Christmas mantel in turquoise, white and silver

 

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.

When Kelly participated in our Patio Style Challenge this past spring, she wowed us with her colorful, casual outdoor living space. We knew she had to participate in our festive Holiday Edition, and we were thrilled when she accepted the challenge! Take a look at how she managed to mix and match various textures and finishes to create a gorgeous Christmas mantel.

When I start thinking about holiday decor, two things come to mind:  sparkle and a pop of color. I love to use unexpected color to add a modern twist to classic elements like a wreath and garland.

This year, I’m using a palette of turquoise, silver and white; pairing Martha Stewart Living ornaments with a collection of mercury glass bottles, vases and votive candles.

When The Home Depot asked if I wanted to be a part of their 2012 Style Challenge for the Holiday season, I knew right away Challenge Accepted! I LOVE decorating for Christmas, and this is by far my favorite outdoor set up I’ve ever done. I knew right away I wanted a rustic outdoor scheme. I wanted to really bring nature into my décor pieces and have that homey-rustic feel. I added in hints of reds, white, and greens for the color scheme to have a “natural” holiday feel.

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.
