Extra Holiday Decor Ideas

Christmas is one week away, and your days must be packed with festive holiday events at restaurants, school, the office, friends’ and families’ houses, and even at your own place. Be it for a celebration or your own personal comfort, a Christmas tree at home complete with decorations can easily bring you that magical holiday vibe. Going simple or all-out is completely up to you. Finished your decorations already? That’s lovely. If you’re still in need of more holiday decors, though, here are some extra ideas you can use for an even more jolly Christmas:

Holiday Records
Got a few holiday albums in your music collection? Your favorite Christmas CDs and vinyls have festive cover arts. Why not place them on a table inside your living room or bedroom to add a bit of a musical flair to your decorations? Once your merry guests stop by for a holiday dinner, that could spark up conversations about all the great Christmas records out there. You can then play some albums on your record player as the soundtrack to your party. Have a holly jolly Christmas!

Shopping Bags and Gift Packages
Been doing lots of Christmas shopping at various Christmas shops and the malls? Your items must have been placed into holiday-themed shopping bags. With illustrations and graphics that pop, those bags look way too festive to be stashed inside your wardrobe. They would make great extra decor materials and can be hung on the wall or displayed at any corner of your home. If you have also collected gifts from family, friends and colleagues, the packages and boxes can also be stored underneath the Christmas tree to add some merriment to your home.

Christmas Cards
All the greeting cards and postcards you’ve received from friends and family members are worthy of being displayed. Adorn your living room with those wonderful cards full of warm wishes for the holiday season.

Magazine Advertisements
Ads get the glam treatment when it comes to the holidays. They look super glossy and inviting. With high quality photography and silver, green and red backgrounds, these promos can be treated as posters. Feel free to rip them out of a print magazine that you own, frame them and put them up on the wall.

Holiday Printouts
Google some Christmas photos and art, from a whimsical snowman to the North Pole. Found a number of favorites? Print them out, and get ready to plaster them along your bedroom wall to add some December magic. Turning them into a collage full of holiday pictures is also doable.

May these ideas give you something extra to be joyous about. Feel free to think up more decorating ideas. Happy holidays! 🙂
