Christmas doesn’t have to be complicated. Looking for simple Christmas decor ideas? I’m sharing 15 simple and easy ways to decorate for Christmas.
When I asked for Christmas questions? So many of you responded with how to keep it simple when you decorate for Christmas.
Simple, easy tips for decking the halls and making it merry.
As the current owner of 37 Christmas totes, I’m not sure if I feel qualified to answer this question.
But I want to try.
I want to try because sometimes Christmas can get a little overwhelming.
I want to try because sometimes all the bows and ribbons and greenery and trees and wreaths and ornaments can be a bit much.
But most importantly? I want to try because I want to celebrate what is truly important during the Christmas season.
So today on Day 8 of the series “12 Days of Getting Ready for Christmas” with my wonderful friend Leslie from My-100-Year-old Home let’s celebrate the simple.
Here are 15 ideas for keeping Christmas simple and easy.
Before I share decorating ideas, I wanted to share a little bit of my heart.
10. Pom pom dollar store stocking
You’ve probably seen these red stockings with white trim everywhere.
Why not decorate them with some easy yarn pom poms?
11. Snowy Window Panes
Here’s a simple Christmas decor idea that doesn’t take up much decorating space.
Apply frosted glass spray or use window clings to create a snowy effect on your windows.
Your home will look like a winter wonderland.
12. Felt and branch Christmas trees
I made these trees several years ago with felt and branches from the yard.
It’s such an easy craft and so inexpensive to make.
13. Frame vintage Christmas carol pages
I’ve heard of wrapping frames with Christmas wrapping paper and adding a bow.
But what if you just framed a little Christmas instead?
Use existing frames and cut out a favorite Christmas carol and frame it.
14. Mix it up with greenery
If you are lucky enough to have mixed greenery in your yard?
Cut a few branches and add them to a planter or urn.
A sleigh or sled or wheelbarrow like this also works well, too.
15. Put anything under a cloche
This is my simplest tip ever.
Find something that is special to you and put it under a cloche.
It instantly looks even more “specially.”
So how did I do?
Did it work?
Did it help?
I may or may not be back to a little 0ver-the-top celebrating tomorrow, but today it was so much fun thinking outside the box and celebrating all the simple. 🙂
