Choose a color scheme
Your color scheme should be based on the overall look that you want to achieve. Do you want a traditional look, a modern look, or something in between? Once you have decided on the overall feel that you are going for, you can begin to narrow down your choices.
If you are going for a traditional look, red and green are always classic Christmas colors. You can also use gold and silver for a more festive feel. If you want a modern look, try using white and silver or white and gold. You could also go with red and white for a more contemporary take on the traditional colors.
Once you have chosen your color scheme, start thinking about how you want to use those colors in your decorations. Do you want to use them in small accents or make them the focus of your décor? Consider your furniture and wall color when making your decisions. If your walls are already decorated with holiday-themed wallpaper or paint, that will likely dictate the colors that you use in the rest of your décor.
Hang garland and wreaths
Hang garland and wreaths inside and outside of your home to get into the holiday spirit. Most garland and wreaths can be hung withCommand™ Outdoor Light Clips. And for an extra touch of holiday cheer, add a bow or some greenery to your outdoor light clips!
Place candles throughout your home
Candles are a great way to create a warm and inviting ambiance in your home during the holidays. Place candles in strategic locations throughout your home to give it a welcoming glow. Be sure to extinguish all candles before leaving the house or going to bed.
Add Christmas-themed throw pillows and blankets
One easy way to get into the holiday spirit is to switch out your regular home decor for Christmas-themed items. Throw pillows and blankets are a great way to do this without going too overboard. Look for pillows with festive patterns or Christmas sayings, and blankets in plaid or Christmas colors. You can also drape a holiday-themed throw blanket over the back of a couch or chair.
Hang stockings by the fireplace
Christmas stockings are often hung by the fireplace or near the Christmas tree. According to legend, St. Nicholas would visit homes on Christmas Eve and fill stockings with treats for good children. Today, people around the world continue this tradition by hanging their own Christmas stockings.

This includes Christmas wreaths, garlands, and other decorations. It’s also important to choose the right size stocking for your fireplace. If you have a small fireplace, it’s best to go with smallerstockings. Conversely, if you have a large fireplace, you can go with larger stockings. Finally, make sure that your stocking is securely hung so that it doesn’t fall and injure anyone.
Once you’ve chosen the perfect spot for your stocking, it’s time to start decorating! You can use ribbon, bows, bells, and other festive items to make your stocking unique. If you’re crafty, you can even add a personal touch by embroidering names or initials onto the stocking. When it comes to decorating for Christmas, there are no rules – just have fun and be creative!
Fill a bowl with Christmas Ornaments

Simply place the decorated bowl in a prominent spot in your home, such as on an end table or coffee table. Visitors will be able to help themselves to an ornament, and you’ll have a beautiful decoration in your home.
Set out a holiday-themed coffee table book
Christmas is a magical time of year. The mood is festive, the air is filled with the scent of evergreen trees, and everyone is in a jolly mood. One of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit is to decorate your home with festive décor.
One simple but effective way to do this is to set out a holiday-themed coffee table book. There are many beautiful coffee table books available that celebrate Christmas. Whether you choose a book about traditional Christmas decorations, iconic holiday locations, or classic Christmas films, it will add some extra holiday cheer to your home.
If you don’t have a coffee table, no problem! Just set the book on an end table, side table, or even on the floor. Whatever you do, make sure it’s easily visible so you and your guests can enjoy it throughout the season.
Place a Christmas tree in your living room
One of the most important parts of getting your home ready for Christmas is to find the perfect Christmas tree. The Christmas tree is the focal point of many living rooms and it sets the tone for the rest of your holiday decor.
There are a few things to keep in mind when you’re shopping for a Christmas tree. First, you’ll need to decide on the right size. Make sure to measure your living room before you head to the store so you know exactly how much space you have to work with.
Once you’ve found the perfect tree, it’s time to decorate! You can go traditional with red and green decorations, or get creative with unique color schemes. Whatever your style, make sure your tree reflects it.
In addition to decorations, consider adding some special touches like garland, lights, and a tree skirt. These elements will make your tree look complete and help it really stand out in your living room.
Add string lights to your tree
One of the most important parts of decorating your home for Christmas is adding string lights to your tree. This will not only add to the overall aesthetic of your tree, but it will also help to make it more visible at night. It is important to choose the right type of string lights, as there are many different types on the market. You should also take into consideration how many lights you need, as this will vary depending on the size of your tree.
Hang a wreath on your front door
One of the first things people see when they come to your home during the holidays is the wreath on your front door. You can purchase a pre-made wreath, or make your own using a metal frame, some wire, and some fresh greens. If you live in an area where it snows, you can also make a pinecone wreath using a metal frame, some wire, and some pinecones that you’ve gathered. Once you have your supplies, follow these steps to hang your wreath on your front door:
First, take the metal frame and put it over the top of the door. If you have a storm door, put the frame on the storm door. Then, take the wire and wrap it around the door knob several times. Make sure that the wire is wrapped tightly so that the wreath will stay in place.
Next, take the greens or pinecones and start at the bottom of the frame. Work your way around the frame, adding more greens or pinecones as you go. Once you’ve gone all the way around the frame, tuck any loose ends under other greens or pinecones so that they’re not sticking out.
Finally, Hang any decorations off of the wreath that you want. You can use ribbons, bows, bells, ornaments, or anything else that you want. Once you’re finished decorating, step back and admire your handiwork!
