If you want to start over with a fresh new look for your home decor, then join the FairField Team and learn how to decorate your home for Christmas. With our creative ideas, your home will stay festive all holiday long for you and your holiday houseguests.

Decorate your front porch

Your walkway is one of the first things that your guests will see when they come to your home. This is why it’s important to pay extra attention to the homemade outdoor christmas decorations you are going to use. Some examples of outdoor Christmas decor could be a DIY Christmas wreath, or a welcoming holiday doormat.

Some other easy outdoor christmas decorating ideas for your front porch are:

  • Garland
  • A holiday bench that you can decorate with festive pillows or blankets
  • A wooden sign that says, “Joy” or “Merry Christmas.”
  • A Christmas wagon with presents and mini Christmas trees inside  
  • A vintage red sled
  • Mini evergreen trees in metal pots or tins
  • Five-minute topiary
  • Mason jar Christmas lights
  • Pinecone wreath arrangements
  • DIY oversize ornaments

Spread Christmas cheer with your staircase

Add a festive look to your staircase by lining the railing with LED Christmas lights, small branches, scarves and of course, garland. By adding these homemade Christmas decoration ideas to your stairway, your home will be the perfect place to host any Holiday celebration.

Spruce up your mantel

Don’t forget your mantel! The mantel is the centerpiece of your living room that can’t be ignored. When decorating your mantel for Christmas, you can use lights, stockings, snowmen, snow frosted trees, candles and more to create something you’ve only seen in the magazines. The charm of Christmas mantels are that they serve as a warm and cozy place for all your family to enjoy during the winter. It’s the place where you open your gifts from Santa and watch your holiday movies!

DIY Christmas tree decorations

The Holidays are not just about throwing lights on your tree. It’s about taking the time to add some extra holiday cheer to your home for your family to enjoy. This year you can be prepared for the tedious task of decorating and learn how to make your own Christmas tree decor. It doesn’t matter where it came from just as long as it fills your home with warmth for the holidays.

Some homemade christmas tree decorations are:

  • Add a rustic feel to your holiday decor by using spray snow, pine cones and sticks.
  • Don’t forget to use a tree topper.
  • Add edible holiday decor like candy canes and peppermints.
  • Use personalized photo ornaments of your loved ones.

Decorate your dining room table

It may seem like the last place you need to decorate for the holidays is your dining room. But, when it comes to your holiday dinners you’ll want it done. Now, don’t think you have to go crazy with garland, lights and Christmas trees. When you are decorating your dining room for Christmas the most important thing is to have nice dishes to use and christmas table centrepieces for the table.

By using these creative ideas, you will create a long lasting impression on those who visit your home this holiday.
