I thought it would be really fun to put together a little gallery of some past ideas that I still really love. Here are some favourite Christmas decorating ideas from past years!
I love so many different styles of Christmas decor, but you just can’t do everything every year! I don’t like to completely reinvent the wheel every year, but I do love to draw inspiration from what I’ve done before and then try a few new things here and there, wherever it feels right. I thought it would be fun to look back on a few of my favourite ideas from past years and share them with you here before I start showing you what we have in our home for Christmas decor this year. Here are some of my favourite Christmas decorating ideas of all time, so far. 🙂
Blue and White Christmas Decor
This post about our blue and white Christmas decor from last year is getting a lot of visitors again this season! I’m doing a lot less blue and white this year, but it’s definitely still in there! I can never be completely without a little blue and white in my life. I shared a roundup of a few other blue and white Christmas decor ideas here as well.
How to Make Paper Snowflakes
This is just a classic winter craft that everyone should know how to do. Here’s my quick little tutorial on how to make beautiful paper snowflakes.
Dollar Store Christmas Decorating Ideas
If you have a good eye and a vision for what you’re hoping to achieve, you can do so much with a few simple supplies from the dollar store!
How to Make Dried Orange Slices
There’s really no Christmas decorating that’s more charming in my opinion. Here’s my tutorial for how to dry orange slices.
Blue and White Christmas Porch Decor
We did this porch a couple of years ago in collaboration with a local greenhouse, so we borrowed a lot of the supplies from them just for the season and the photos, but I did keep a few things. One thing I’d really love to do again is buy a whole bunch of lanterns like these to line up. The only issue would be finding a place to store them all for the rest of the year! I’ve been working on decluttering the basement a lot, so maybe I’ll be able to clear up a shelf that can be dedicated to just my Christmas lanterns. We’ll see. 🙂
A Bow Christmas Tree Topper
This is now my go-to topper every year. I love that it’s a simple solution that I can use to go with any kind of decor I come up and the ribbon can be re-used for something different the following year! Definitely a clutter-free tree topper if ever there was such a thing. Here’s how to make a bow Christmas tree topper.
How to Add Vertical Ribbon to a Christmas Tree
I love how this little trick makes your tree look instantly more elegant.
DIY Cedar Garland
This was so fun to make. I’m really hoping that this will become a regular tradition one of these years.
Homemade Scented Pinecones
I have a few that I’ve gathered from outside that are drying right now just for this purpose! So quick and easy, but it just makes you feel like you’re really having a good old-fashioned Christmas. Here’s how to do it.
