Are you tired of recreating the same old Christmas scenes in your hom year after year? Maybe it’s time to try something new; here are six expert Christmas tips and tricks for using rugs, linens and other home decor essentials to make your Christmas decor fresh and exciting.
1. Utilize a Solid Color Rug
Use a solid color or simple geometric area rug under your tree, your table or your living room furniture, and coordinate your Christmas or holiday colors with it. For example, a cream-colored rug will look beautiful beneath a simple tree adorned in cream-colored ornaments.
2. Deck the Walls
Create a temporary accent wall by covering it with solid-color or holiday-themed fabric. Consider a red and gold cascade of fabric as a festive backdrop for your holiday buffet table.
3. Transform Throw Pillows
Tie coordinating ribbons and bows around your solid-color throw pillows to make them look like wrapped presents. They can serve as decorative stand-ins when the real presents have all been unwrapped.
4. Try a New Hue
If you’ve been sporting red, green and gold for the last decade, dare to be different. Check your local stores for on-trend ideas, or pick a unique color of your own to start a new trend.
5. Give Old Candles a Makeover
If you can’t bear to part with your old Christmas candles, give them a bold new look. Use old jewelry, ribbons, string and straight pins to decorate them, and then make them the star of centerpieces and mantles throughout your home.
6. Transform Your Extra Seating
If you’re using folding chairs to seat your extra holiday guests, use your extra holiday-themed tablecloths or linens as chair covers. Drape or fold them to fit the back and seat of each chair, and secure them into place by tying matching ribbons around them.
