Christmas is just around the corner! It’s time to start getting out the old Christmas decorations and begin thinking of new Christmas decorating ideas.

Simple Christmas decorating ideas # 1
Beautiful lights – Strings of white lights can be picked up at a very low price, and they can be used to transform your living area into a whimsical winter land. String white lights through real or artificial house plants, around staircase banisters, above fireplace mantels or doorways, or wrap them inside white tulle and display them inside baskets, in windows, or anywhere in the home.
Simple Christmas decorating ideas # 2
Dress up an empty space – If you have space above your kitchen cabinets, purchase pre-lit Christmas garland or poinsettia garland and string it up over the cabinets. Although this is a very simple idea, it makes a dramatic impact both during the day when the garland is not lit, and at night when it is. Above the kitchen cabinets is also the perfect spot to show off poinsettia plants or decorative Christmas cookie jars or tea pots.

Mix things up with fabric – Fabric instantly adds warmth to a room, so dress up your furniture with Christmas plaid throw blankets. You can also buy inexpensive red, green, or plaid throw pillows and wrap white ribbon around them so that they look like small Christmas packages.

Pinecones – Cinnamon scented pine cones or cinnamon brooms add a Christmas aroma in the air, and they look attractive as Christmas decorations too. Put them in baskets by the fireplace, or scatter them under the Christmas tree or on the fireplace mantel.

Quick centerpiece or display – Find a large glass bowl or dish and place colorful round Christmas ornaments inside the container. Display it on an end table, foyer table, coffee table, or use it as a centerpiece at the dining room table.

Christmas crackers – Christmas Crackers are Christmas decorations you can make yourself, and use to dress up any small area. Christmas Crackers aren’t food!
