Decorating your home for Christmas doesn’t need to be expensive! Use some of the clever ideas below to quickly (and painlessly) decorate your Vaughan home for the upcoming holiday season.
Decorate Your Mantle
Your fireplace mantle is the perfect eye-catching feature to decorate for the Christmas season! Use garlands, ornaments, candles and wreath to instantly create an eye-catching display.
Feeling crafty? Purchase letter decorations from your local craft store that form a festive word such as “merry” or “Noel.” If you’re using the letter “o” in your word, consider replacing the letter with a wreath.
Use twine, paint or stain to decorate the letters in an attractive way that matches the rest of your home’s aesthetic appeal. Get as creative as you want with this fun project!
Add Holiday Cheer to Your Staircase
A home’s staircase is typically a focal feature upon entrance to your home, so why not highlight it this holiday season?
Use inexpensive garland, lights and plastic Christmas ball decorations to decorate the bannister. String lights can add a magical touch in the evenings!
Make It Smell Like Christmas
Christmas is normally accompanied by certain smells – from cinnamon and spruce to gingerbread and orange. Purchase beautiful candles, simmer pots or wall plug-ins that have smells that resonate with your Christmas traditions.
If you love the smell of a real Christmas tree but hate the mess, purchase some scented icicle decorations. They hang inconspicuously from your fake tree while emitting smells of spruce or pine. Check with your local hardware store for scent options.
Decorate Your Windows
Windows present a wonderful opportunity to add some festive cheer to your home.
Create attractive window displays using Christmas balls on sparkly string, wreaths and whatever else you have on hand. To create a joyful, eye-appealing look, keep your window arrangements simple and elegant, being careful not to go overboard on the decorations.
Make the Most of Mirrors
Use strategically placed mirrors to capture twinkling lights and seasonal colours around your home. Placing one behind your Christmas tree with a holiday decal word on it forms instant elegance in a room. They’re also suitable for mantles, around candles or to form the bottom of a table arrangement.
Besides adding instant glam, mirrors really open up small spaces. They’re a great idea to incorporate if you plan on listing your Vaughan home for sale!
Seasonal Word Decals
Besides on mirrors, seasonal word decals are an inexpensive way to decorate empty walls, too. Typically customizable, vinyl decals are available in a range of colours, images and fonts. Choose something that suits your space and your tastes.
When purchasing your decals, be sure to purchase temporary ones so that they’re easy to remove and reuse next season. Etsy is a great place to locate a maker who can create your vision.
Taking time to decorate your home for Christmas is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. It’s also an opportunity to make your home even more appealing if you’re planning on selling!
