With a limited color palette and traditions to abide by, Christmas decorating can be difficult to spice up. However, several tips from Country Living magazine may help you add a unique flair to your holiday decor this year.
Most Christmas trees are adorned with glass ornaments and glowing lights, but why not decorate for Christmas with flowers this year? The news source demonstrates how you can turn poinsettia blooms into living ornaments by attaching them to the tree with floral water tubes that will help keep them fresh. Voila! The perfect Christmas floral decorations.
Another way to give your holiday decor some personality is to replace a classic holiday piece such as stocking with an unexpected material. The magazine shows a mantel decorated with wooden stockings cut from plywood in all different sizes. The natural wooden texture offers a rustic touch to a room.
To put your own spin on the traditional wreath, craft one out of balls of yarn. To do this, wrap Christmas-colored yarn around styrofoam balls in two different sizes, then use a glue gun to make them into a circular form. Accent this decoration with a simple bouquet of Christmas flowers.
