Ways to Decorate Your Home for Christmas

If every time you step into your house after a tiring day at work, you want to feel Christmassy, these ideas are just what you need. Below are some ideas for Christmas home decoration that will put you in a festive mood in no time.

1. Wall-Mounted Christmas Tree

Since most of us don’t have large, cottage-style homes or porched houses, it might feel like having a traditional Christmas tree is lacking in space. Don’t worry–in your current space, you can also have a beautiful tree! This wooden Christmas tree looks small, and the best part is that you can use it throughout the year. Get some wooden racks in a hardware store near you and cut these racks to make them look like a Christmas tree. Nail them in your living room to a wall and stock each shelf with your own choice of ornaments. Add several colorful lights on and around the racks – use the racks to create a festive look for candles or other Christmas items.

2. Personalized Ornaments

Add a personal touch with hand-made decorations and personal ornamentation to your Christmas tree. Your child can participate in this fun Christmas crafting activity.

Get some pom poms in red, white and green and ask your child to use colors to paint them. On the Christmas tree hang these pom poms. DIY ice cream stick snowflakes can also be made, but they do not have to be the generic white color–encourage your child to paint them. Instead of shopping for bells and stars, your child should cut the shapes of stars and bells out of cardboard and decorate them with glitter and glue.

3. Fairy Lights Wall Art

Buy a long string of fairy lights and place them in your child’s bedroom in the shape of a Christmas tree. Your child thus gets a cool night light and a personalized Christmas tree just for his room!

4. Use Your Diwali Decor

Do not let the decorations of your Diwali go to waste. Use your Diwali lights to decorate your balcony and decorate your dining area with green and red tea light candles.

5. Mix and Match Gift Wrap

Practice your skills for an instant outdoor display with seasonal paper and ribbons before you start wrapping real gifts.

6. Christmas Treats

Without delicious Christmas treats like the gingerbread man and rum balls, Christmas is incomplete! Bake your own gingerbread cookies and involve your kids to decorate and sprinkle them with red, green and white icing. You can also make balls of chocolate and cover them with grated coconut to make them look like snowballs. Place them on a red paper plate and use them for your Christmas dinner party as a centerpiece.

 7. DIY Stars and Snowflakes

Turn your corridor into a wonderland hanging from the ceilings with stars and snowflakes! You can simply download and give your child a snowflake and star template–encourage him to use sprinkles and glue to color it or decorate it. Then take the same stars and snowflakes in a cardboard cutout and just glue them on. Tie the cardboard to the string, and hang it from the ceiling! So every night, just looking up, you and your kids will be reminded of a winter wonderland.

8. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Let’s not forget our favorite: Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer! You can make it into a fun decoration for Christmas and use it as a treat for your children. Glue two sticks of candy cane or pretzel to a thick chocolate bar and add in the middle of the bar a small red-colored edible sphere. You’ve got it there–your own Rudolph! Give this as a Christmas snack to your child.

Parenthood is challenging, and with all work and family juggling. In such cases, the spirit of Christmas often takes a backseat, but this year it doesn’t have to be this way. A weekend is all you need to turn your home into a wonderland of Christmas–what’s more, these ideas to decorate your home for Christmas can be something that you and your child work together to make it a beautiful bonding activity.
