Christmas Decorating Ideas

Christmas decorating can either be one of your most favorite things to do, or something you do but don’t love because it is such a hassle. We have compiled a few ideas that are tasteful, simple and look great!

Add Some Greenery

Add a little bit of green to your front porch by adding a wooden box with a faux mini Christmas tree to each side of your door, leave them bare or decorate them with some lights and ornaments it’s up to you! Add a few large pine cones around your front porch and finish it off with a green festive wreath. See, how simple was that?

Repurpose

Have some old rain boots of skates laying around in the garage? Don’t throw them away just yet! Grab a old wooden crate and stuff a faux Christmas tree pre lit or not and then fill the rest of the crate with pine cones and spray paint your old rain boots/skates and use them as a vase for seasonal greenery!

Antiques

Have some beautiful antique vases? Use them this winter (as long as your okay with having snow on them, if not normal decorative Vases will do as well)! Make a winter greenery basket! Add a round Styrofoam block on the bottom of the vase and go through your neighbourhood collecting broken branches and pine branches, bring them home and start arranging them in the vase, you may want to spray some of the pine branches with a clear coat of spray paint or glue to keep the pines from falling off. Add some pine cones and some festive ribbon and your all set!
