12 Christmas Decorating Ideas

As we approach Christmas, everyone's looking for their Christmas decorations and new Christmas decorating ideas. It's such a wonderful time of year, a magical season where thoughts of peace on earth, kind feelings and laughter abound. Let's look at some ideas to kindle your creative side.

  1. Going to a production of the Nutcracker Suite is a perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. Many theaters in large cities sell unusual, Nutcracker-themed Christmas decorations in their gift shop.
  2. Go to the mall, right after Thanksgiving. Their lavish displays can help inspire you with new ideas for Christmas decorations.
  3. Baking cookies can do double duty if you set aside a portion of the batch to make into ornaments. Use a pencil to poke a hole for ribbon hanging before baking. Cookies and Christmas decorations in one fun activity.
  4. Bake a gingerbread house. There are many recipes and patterns available in magazines. Use a variety of small candies, candy canes, gel icing, frosting and other edibles. String popcorn to use as "lights" for roof edging.
  5. Outside lighting is one of my favorite Christmas decoration projects. If you have a porch or balcony, try weaving strings of lights around railings. Trees can be transformed into living Christmas decorations. There's no reason a potted plant on your balcony cannot be given the same treatment.
  6. If your apartment is on the fourth floor, and you have no porch or balcony, hang lights with protected wire tacks to dress your windows from the inside. Very pretty!
  7. Many communities have whole neighborhoods participating in blocks of Christmas decorations and light displays. Visit one for inspiration if you have the opportunity. Kids love them.
  8. The Nativity is one of the most beautiful Christmas decorations. An oval-shaped mirror placed beneath brings this display to life. Think of places in your home where this might be shown to best advantage. A buffet, coffee table, mantel or entry hall are good locations.
  9. Make a wreath. Make garlands. String cranberries and popcorn into garlands for the Christmas tree. Explore the dried flower aisles of a craft store. You'll find many combinations of colors and textures to make festive vase displays in each room of your home.
  10. Poinsettia and Christmas cactus plants make beautiful Christmas decorations. If you take good care of them, they last for years.
  11. Craft stores carry many types of wreath bases, and more Christmas decorations than you can shake a stick at! Many craft stores have handouts with pictures and instructions of Christmas decorations you can make with their products.
  12. Spread the joy! Time to get busy, now.
