Make Your Home Merry and Bright: 9 Tips for Christmas Decoration


Christmas is the most magical time of the year, and it’s also a time to celebrate being together as a family. A home that looks festive and welcoming will help you create an atmosphere of joy, love and fun for all your guests this holiday season! The key to successfully decorating for Christmas is planning ahead. Choose colours that will complement each other in terms of tone, brightness, warmth or coolness so that when guests arrive they’ll walk into an inviting space.

You can even use existing decorative elements such as antique plates or glassware placed on shelves throughout your home as well as any old decorations lying around on tables or in drawers – just make sure they’re clean first! And if you’re feeling creative then why not try creating something new like making your own garland by tying colourful ribbons into bows?

Plan ahead

Decorating your home for Christmas is an exciting time, but it can also be very stressful. If you want to make sure that the decorations look their best and don’t get in the way of each other or otherwise interfere with your daily life, follow these tips:

  • Choose a time when people are likely to be at home. If you’re hosting a large family gathering, plan for some downtime afterwards so everyone can rest and relax before heading back out again (they’ll appreciate having somewhere quiet where they can do this).
  • Choose decorations that complement each other. Don’t go overboard with lots of different colours on display; instead try using several shades from one colour family like green and red together or blue/green/red etc., instead of just one big bouquet of flowers everywhere! This will keep things simple without making everything look dull together; plus it means less work for those who might not have any experience decorating rooms themselves!
  • Make sure there’s enough space around all items so nothing gets knocked over accidentally – especially if someone has been drinking alcohol beforehand – which could cause damage due its size compared against normal objects found inside homes today (like maybe furniture pieces).

Choose your colours

  • Choose a colour scheme that fits your personality: This means that you should choose a colour scheme that you feel comfortable with and that reflects your personal style.
  • Choose colours that will look good in different lights: This means that you should choose colours that will look good in both natural and artificial light.
  • Choose colours that will look good in different seasons: This means that you should choose colours that will look good in both summer and winter.

Get a statement tree

If you are not sure what to get, then a big tree is the best option. A statement tree will make your home look festive and bright! The main thing to remember when choosing a Christmas tree is that it should complement the room. For example: if you have a small living room then go for an artificial one; however if there is much space in your home then choose an ornamental tree instead of an artificial one.

It’s also important to check out their sizes before buying them as some people like their trees bigger than others (but this doesn’t mean that they should be smaller). Make sure they are fresh, healthy and smell good too!

Think outside the box to create new looks using old decorations.

Use old Christmas decorations in new ways.

If you have an old tree that’s been in storage for years, why not use it as a centerpiece? Or maybe you’ve got an antique door that has been collecting dust for years, but now it’s time to bring back life to your home with a fresh coat of paint. There are many ways that you can repurpose these items and make them work for the modern decorating style.

Make good use of the outdoors by decorating outdoors

The festive season is the perfect time to go out and about with your family, friends and loved ones. It’s also a great opportunity to get some exercise as you spend time outdoors in the fresh air!

There are many ways you can decorate outside for Christmas:

  • Use outdoor lights – They’re easy to find at any hardware store or online. You can even make them yourself with materials from your garden shed or garage!
  • Use outdoor tree decorations – A bauble on top of an artificial tree will look nice against its white backdrop while adding some extra cheerfulness without being too busy or overbearing. The same goes for hanging garlands around bushes (or even trees) so that they create an attractive backdrop when viewed from afar; however, if there isn’t much foliage around then stick with more traditional methods like twigs instead! If this isn’t possible then consider using other materials like ribbons instead because although they may take longer than stringing up tinsel-like items such as popcorn strings they’ll still add charm without adding too much bulkiness into what we’re trying here today 🙂

Hang your Christmas cards most creatively

  • Use a Christmas card holder. It’s easy to hang your cards on the wall, but what if you want to create something more elaborate? You could use an old frame and hang cards from it as well.
  • Use a Christmas card tree. If you have enough space in your home, then this is one great way of making sure that all of your friends and family get a piece of holiday cheer!
  • Hang up some garlands around the house or make one yourself using ribbons and bows (be warned: these things take time).
  • Wreaths are another way to decorate for Christmas—you can even make them yourself using paper plates!

Make your own Christmas garland and wreaths.

Making your own garland is a great way to save money, and it’s easy to do. Here are some of our favorite DIY Christmas decorations:

  • Make a homemade Christmas wreath from old magazines and newspapers. You can also use fabric scraps or ribbons if you have any on hand.
  • Use old scarves to make an extra-special holiday garland! Just tie them together in different colors or patterns, then hang up the finished product on the inside of your door frame or window frame (or anywhere else where it looks good).
  • Get creative with old holiday cards: If you have any unused ones lying around instead of throwing them away after each year, why not make into some festive decorations? Cut out images from them using scissors (and maybe glue), then arrange them together on top of a piece of wood—this will serve as both decoration AND backdrop while watching films all day long!

It’s not just about red and green.

Red and green are the traditional colours of Christmas. But they’re also the colours of nature and love, giving and joy. And they’re found in all kinds of decorations: from candles to baubles to tinsel.

Red is a strong colour that can be used to energise your home by bringing out all kinds of vibes (it’s said to make you feel alert). Green adds calmness and serenity to any space it’s placed in—especially if it’s surrounded by white or other pastel hues!

Upcycle old ornaments and decorations.

If you have old ornaments and decorations, use them! You can use them to create new ones. For example, if you have an ornament that has been passed down from your grandmother, but there are no more children in the family who would like it anymore, why not make a Christmas tree out of it? Or perhaps your house is full of old-fashioned-looking lights that don’t work anymore because they need batteries or bulbs replaced. Instead of throwing them away (or recycling them), consider turning them into something else! Your home will be full of bright lights—and so will everyone else’s when they see what kind of creative thinking has gone into decorating your home this year!

Christmas is a time to be creative, so don’t be afraid to use your imagination. If you have an empty space in the house, it’s easy to create a beautiful atmosphere by adding some decorations. Here are some tips:

  • Use natural materials like branches and pine cones for decoration. You can also use paper chains or ribbons around the house if there aren’t any trees around!
  • Be creative with old decorations that don’t work anymore but still look good together (or even make new ones). For example: antique silverware used as candelabras; old books turned into window panes; etc…
  • Make sure that whatever you choose matches each other well so they blend into one big piece of art! Try using different shades of green instead of yellow or red because these colors tend not only match each other but also create contrast between them which creates more interest while looking at them together.”


Christmas is a special time in the year and it’s important to make sure that you have a home that reflects this. Whether you want to focus on traditional Christmas decorations or create something new and exciting, there are plenty of ways to decorate your home for the holidays. The process may seem daunting at first but with some planning ahead time will go by quickly! So don’t let yourself get overwhelmed by all these tips – just think about what kind of look would suit best in your house or apartment (or even outdoors if weather permits). Happy decorating!
