6 Ways to Be More Creative with Holiday Decor

6 Ways to Be More Creative with Holiday Decor

Are you in a rut with your holiday decor?

Wish you could break free and try something a little different with your Christmas decor? Or are you the kind who always puts the stockings in the same place, the wreath on the same window year after year and the tree in the same corner? Ahhh, yes.

Let’s consider the possibilities, shall we? How about possibilities that don’t require excessive amounts of effort or skill? YES!

1. Hang the stockings with care somewhere other than the mantel.

A few years back we bird hung stockings from a bird cage. It is fun to do something unique.

2. Repurpose anything that resembles a hook!

A skeleton key in an armoire is a creative alternative for hanging a wreath.

3. Decorate furniture you normally don’t.

Try hanging a wreath or ornaments from your bed or a chair back! It is super easy but makes a great new statement.

4. Faux snow, glitter and new colors are your friends.

Spray your usual greenery or bare sticks with faux snow and glitter and add a fresh NEW color decoration to “branch out” a bit into a new look. Easy! You really cannot mess this up, use a light hand with the snow and you’ll be fine.

5. Decorate a new room this year.

Am I the only one who decorates their bathroom? Try something simple like a little snowflake garland across the mirror.

6. Use items you normally don’t normally use with your Christmas decor to mix things up.

I’m having fun this year with pine cones and nests for a more rustic natural holiday look. You don’t need to buy anything new, just look around for what you already have.

Are you in a rut?

Being creative does not necessarily mean you need to make a bigger mess, take more time or use more STUFF. Take it from me, the non-crafty queen, creativity can be SIMPLE.
