Getting ready to decorate for Christmas? Here are 9 Christmas decorating ideas, tips, and inspiration you may not have thought of.
Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year.
Daylight savings magazine day.
The day I make my annual November trip to the bookstore and come home with an armful of Christmas magazines.
I never met a Christmas magazine I didn’t like. The pages are full of decor and stockings and trees and mantels and front doors and wreaths and tons of Christmas ideas I haven’t ever thought of before.
So today when we are given the gift of an extra hour, I want to fill it with Christmas ideas and inspiration.
Here are 9 Christmas decorating ideas you may not have thought of.
9 Christmas Decorating Ideas You May Not Have Thought Of
1. Add eucalyptus (or other branches) to the top of the tree
This is such an easy tree topper.
Instead of a star? Why not add eucalyptus (or other branches) to the top of the tree?
2. Decorate a wall with french horns
This is such a clever idea.
I love the idea of adding the “Good Tidings” sign, too.
3. Hang a basket on a mirror
You know how much I love mirrors.
Especially when they are decorated for Christmas. Hang a basket on a mirror with a command hook and fill it with greenery.
4. Create a paper star garland for the window
Paper stars are so pretty in a window with the light filtering through the paper.
They are super easy to make and string together with jute twine.
5. Add a fresh tree to a bucket or hat box
Here’s an easy idea to add a pop of color and pattern to your Christmas decor.
Cover a bucket or hat box with scrapbook paper or gift wrap and add a small tree.

8. Make a snowflake garland
This is a large budget idea on a small budget.

Isn’t this tree the cutest?
Look at the layered pom pom garland and the owls and the birdhouses.
And an owl is perched on top of the tree.
