How to Decorate Your Home & Garden for Christmas

Decorating your home can be one of the best parts of the Christmas holiday. Trimming the tree, setting out candles, putting up lights, and many other activities can become a part of your family’s Christmas traditions. If you live in a climate that will allow a garden to thrive during the winter months, decorating your garden can be another wonderful part of your Christmas decorating. Below are some ideas about how to decorate your home and garden for Christmas.

The color red is a hallmark of the Christmas season. You can use red ribbons all around your house and garden, not just on presents! You can tie bows on your doorknobs, on your chandeliers, and even tie some around posts that you can put into your garden. You can pick up on the theme of the color red in your home by filling a clear glass with a bunch of cranberries, and topping the glass with some white roses or lilies from your garden. You can also use cranberries to float in a silver bowl along with some floating candles.

Christmas lights are excellent decorating tools for the Christmas season. Of course, you can put lights on your tree just like everyone else; but, you can also use Christmas lights in other ways. You can accent the outlines of your garden using Christmas lights, for example. You can use several strands of Christmas lights in your den or your family room, all strung up along the walls or ceiling, to provide ambient lighting. Try to think of non-traditional ways to use lights over the Christmas season.

Like lights, you can use ornaments and even wrapping paper in nontraditional ways, as well. You can hang more durable-type bulb ornaments from your shrubbery outside, for example. You might choose to wrap your doors in Christmas wrapping paper. You might add a few small wrapped boxes to your garden’s landscape, as well. There is almost nowhere in the home and garden that a gift decoration would be out of place.

With a little bit of creativity, you will find that you can decorate your home and garden in a truly unique and beautiful way this Christmas.
