You wonder where the time has gone and feel a sudden rush to decorate your home before Christmas creeps up on you. You don’t want to spend ages decorating and but want your home Christmas ready fast. Read our fast and easy tips on how to give your home the perfect Christmas makeover.

Wreaths

Let your personal style shine with an array of different wreath ideas to choose from, the options are endless. Even get little ones involved and have them help with gluing or weaving a decoration here or there, or even to help you see if the wreath is perfectly in the center when you hang it on your front door.

A wreath is the classic first-sign-of-Christmas and is a sure fire way to kick start your home Christmas makeover and really get you in the holiday mood – and don’t feel limited to only having one on the front door! Feel free to place wreaths above bedroom doors, windows and whatever other suitable location you can dream up. There are several different wreath styles to choose from that you can use on their own or combined with others, here are ones we like:

Ornaments. Combine two decoration ideas into one with Christmas ornaments and Christmas wreaths. Get tubing that is similar to a wreath-like shape and glue your favorite ornaments onto it for one bright decoration.

Classic. Go for the classic Pine tree branches look for a wreath by weaving together branches on your own or buying a professionally made one from the store. Adorn it with a bright bow and a few pine cones to add pops of color and dimension.

Wrapped Up. Make your wreath wrapped and ready to go with any fabric, yarn, or any other wrapping material you have available. Using this method you have the most freedom to create a wreath of any style you want – simply visit your local craft store and select your favorite fabrics you want to showcase.

 

 

Candles

Nothing marks the beginning of December quite like the smell of peppermint or pumpkin spice. Pepper scented candles around your home for a cozy glow in the evenings accompanied with pleasant scents that bring up thoughts of the holiday season. Feel free to dress up your candles with a store-bought or home made candle holder. Here are our favorite holiday scents:

Peppermint. Being a holiday classic, we feel like peppermint is a great go-to for a holiday scent

Sweet Dessert. Whether it’s apple pie, gingerbread or cranberry sauce, sweet smelling candles that remind you of some of your favorite holiday desserts are a great go-to, giving your home the smell of if you had been baking all night when you haven’t had to lift a finger.

Pine Needles. We know, we know. Your Christmas tree will already smell like pine needles – but sometimes the scent doesn’t fill your entire home, or you may have opted for a mock-plastic Christmas tree this year. Either way, with Pine Needle scented candles or something similar, you can ensure every nook and cranny smells like Christmas tree-goodness.

 

Christmas Lights

Christmas lights are a quintessential indicator of Christmas-time, and they are a favorite of many, often being used outside of the December season. Although they are used throughout the year, there’s something special about having them hanging in your home while waiting for Christmas day at the end of the month (and December is the only time of the year you can really get away with brightly colored Christmas lights that diverge from the classic clear).

Drape lights wherever you see fit, keeping safety in mind of course. Avoid areas close to sinks or where small children or animals could get a hold of them. At a loss of prime locations to place them? Try these:

On your staircase railing. Having your staircase railing dazzling with lights will transform your stairs into a magical stairway leading up to your second floor. The placement ensures that your lights will travel up sky-high, adding dimension when looking at them from the first floor.

Around our window. It isn’t an idea that many consider, but having a few windows dripping with bright Christmas lights will really brighten up your home. We suggest focusing on one window in particular to be the glow-y star of the show, this way you can avoid going overboard with too much glitz.

Along your bed frame. Curled around or hanging from your bed frame is also a great location to put Christmas lights. They provide a comforting glow during the evenings helping you relax after a long day. Feel free to use them in a child’s room too as a holiday-infused nightlight that is sure to garner plenty of smiles. Take care to ensure the lights are out of the child’s reach or communicate to them that the lights are not to be touched.

Christmas Music

Having Christmas music playing in the background is often nostalgic for most who heard those same songs growing up. Bring back the memories and create new ones by having holiday tunes softly playing in your home throughout the day as a constant reminder that it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
