If you want to decorate your home or office for Christmas this year, here are some original, easy and beautiful Christmas decoration ideas. We also give you some tips for making crafts that can be used to decorate your home for Christmas.
Christmas is one of those magical moments where you can create everything, where the most important thing is your creativity because at your disposal there are all kinds of articles to create something unforgettable. And we are not only going to talk about items that you can buy, but also about how you can make fascinating crafts.
Or we can also choose the minimalist Christmas decoration that is nothing more than choosing small elements to decorate houses or flats that are not very large. For example, and to start moving forward, nothing like decorating with lights as we see in the photo above.
In this section, Christmas decoration for the home, we are also going to show you how you can decorate the different parts of your house to ensure that all of it exudes vitality and illusion from the living room to the bedroom, also passing through the dining room and for the table like this that you see above.
We have chosen a wide variety of photographs to make it easier for you to get inspired and find the images that best suit your tastes and your space.
CHRISTMAS DECORATION FOR DOORS
More and more people are encouraged to decorate the doors during the Christmas period, there are still a few who resist but little by little we begin to see that all the doors of the home have details that tell us “Christmas”.
To decorate the door you have a great infinity of options depending on your tastes. Christmas wreaths are classic and you can buy them as you make them at home with recycled or top-quality materials. It’s not really a difficult subject, it just takes a little time to do.
If you prefer a less striking decoration, you can also choose simpler decorative details such as a simple bow in the typical Christmas colors (red, green, gold, or silver), a Christmas item (Christmas star, a bell, etc.), or a simple Merry Christmas hanging from the peephole.’
Of course, if you want a very striking decoration, we are also going to find other hilarious options and possibilities like the ones you can see in this photo.
For those of you who have a porch, the possibilities become endless because you can now place some garlands of lights on top, the typical poinsettias, Christmas trees, or a welcoming reindeer, among so many options.
Or we have an idea that is contrary to decorating for a large porch. Many of the houses in our country are floors of buildings, so the decoration of the door maybe a little more reduced, and with it nothing like opting then for some pineapples as we see in this other idea that is undoubtedly very easy to achieve. You just have to collect a few pineapples, wash them, and hang them with the help of a few ribbons.
Do you like to decorate with recycled elements? This other idea to decorate the door at Christmas also seems very appropriate but at the same time, very original since it consists of decorating with a few bath sponges in green, also adding decorative elements such as large balls, and bows.
CHRISTMAS DECORATION FOR WINDOWS
No space can go unnoticed in a home and the windows couldn’t be less. Put aside that later you have to clean them well or that you are going to leave the mark, do not worry about that and enjoy the Christmas spirit.
In this case, the options are going to be just as varied and fun. If you like your house to be illuminated, one of the best options is the garlands of Christmas lights that you can find with different motifs: white or colored balls, snowflakes, stars, lights, etc.
You can place them in the upper area of the window and let them fall a little on it. You can also place near the window garlands with Christmas motifs but that do not have to have lights, it is simply to drop the Christmas flakes, spheres, etc. If you see that you do not have at home but you want to create loose Christmas items, you can create them.
You can buy a template with a Christmas motif or make it yourself, then you place it on the window and spray it with Christmas foam spray so that the represented figure is left. It looks really cool!
If the foam does not convince you, you can also create your own mural by placing an overlay of trees in white tones with snowflakes falling on top of the window. The result is sensational.
Another idea to decorate the windows this Christmas is this that we show you below that corresponds to the decoration of the windows for the interior and not for the exterior. In this sense, we bet on pineapples, a traditional element of the time, which also allows us to decorate in a simple way. All that is needed is to hang a few pinecones with a long ribbon, as we see.
On the other hand, we can also opt for the idea or for the option of hanging a few pine wreaths, from some red strips or ribbons and hanging these from the window.
CHRISTMAS OUTDOOR DECORATION
If in addition to a porch you have a garden in front of houses, you cannot miss the opportunity to create a successful Christmas decoration.
The options are so varied that you will be able to adapt them to your pocket, the time you can dedicate to it, and the space you have available:
You can decorate the trees that you have in front of your house with garlands of lights, Christmas items, or whatever you can think of.
If you have a large space in the garden and you want to make a Christmas investment, nothing like buying a large Santa Claus sleigh that you can fully illuminate so that it can be seen from afar, large snowmen, reindeer, or even the three Wise Men who they may be arriving with gifts.
If you are into recycling to decorate, nothing like taking a few large cardboard boxes, cutting them into a Christmas ball, reinforcing them with a stick or a piece of wood, and nailing them in the garden. Also, do not forget to decorate each of the balls, with the most traditional colors of Christmas, and also write if you want, beautiful Christmas messages.
On the other hand, if you have pots hanging on the balcony, a window, or also on the terrace or garden, nothing like creating a garland from the balls that you usually hang from your Christmas tree.
In the event that crafts are your thing, take a look at this photo and how they have made three wooden logs a perfect option.
VINTAGE CHRISTMAS DECOR
If the decoration of your house is vintage style and you want to keep the Christmas decoration in the same style, let me tell you that it is possible.
The most interesting option would be to choose those Christmas elements or items that you have had at home for years, those that have an aged appearance, and create a good atmosphere with them.
In the event that you have to buy something new, have you thought about creating it yourself or customizing it, like these stars, so that they have that vintage detail?
On the other hand, we also have the option of recycling a few glass jars to create a vintage decoration like the one we see in the image above, also adding the presence of a candle, and a few pine branches.
In a special way and with air not only vintage but also very romantic, nothing like choosing to decorate with bottles that we can cover with a painting that we like and also place a candle inside, dropping a little wax so that it has a charm or style that is more special.
CHRISTMAS DECORATION WITH CRAFTS FOR KIDS
If there is a time to do crafts it is at Christmas, in schools the children are the ones who create their own decorative items to make the murals at school and at home we can also do the same, whether with children or without children, the possibilities they are infinite.
One of the crafts for adults or teenagers who already know how to handle a needle and do not turn out to be a danger is this garland of different Christmas motifs that have been made with felt and a little foam, it is simple to make and the result is sensational.
Another craft is this, a little simpler, which would be to create a Christmas tree with the elements you have at home. You can use felt, magazine sheets, cardboard, etc. for tree branches. All you need is to glue them to an ice cream stick and put a nice base that can even be a small pot.
We can also make this other craft from felt, in different colors of green and also decorated with buttons, also adding a star in yellow felt and all glued to a wooden stick.
CHRISTMAS DECORATION WITH RECYCLED MATERIALS
I declare myself passionate about recycling, the truth is, giving things a second turn has still cost me a little more and I admire the many homemade works of art that are being created with so few materials.
What materials can you reuse? Bottle corks, plastic bottles, magazines and newspapers, cardboard, glass jars, pinecones, tree branches, spent light bulbs, coffee capsules, PVC pipes … It would be better to almost ask what materials you cannot use and there, we would also see committed because it is difficult to find them.
CHRISTMAS DECORATION IN FOAM OR EVA FOAM
Ever since they gave me some foam chickens, which were really recycled light bulbs, I have been madly in love with everything that can be made with these materials.
In the case of Eva rubber, this material rose to stardom with the thousands of dolls that have been given away for a few years that you could order personalized. In this case, for Christmas, you can make a Santa Claus, the Three Wise Men, the Bethlehem, or whatever you can think of.
As you are the one you are going to create, you can choose the material, foam or Eva rubber, according to the best one that suits you, and design the figures characterized in the dimensions that best suit you.
CHRISTMAS DECORATION WITH PLASTIC BOTTLES
In other articles, we have already shown you how you can create really cool Christmas trees with plastic bottles or jugs of the same material. Well, you can do the same with other Christmas items or create decorative objects with the same theme.
Take a look at these Christmas capsules and tell me that they are not in themselves an impressive gift.
We can also make a small Christmas ball like the one in the photo, which we can make easily, with a base of a plastic bottle, glued to the top, with the cap. Inside, we will have to place a small Christmas figure and some artificial snow.
CHRISTMAS DECORATION WITH PINEAPPLES
Pinecones are a sensational element as a mere Christmas decoration, without doing anything they are already a decorative object that attracts attention by itself. We have already seen them for doors and windows, but in themselves, we can also choose them to create decorative elements.
On this occasion, we are going to suggest that you make some simple effects or combinations with which you can create sensational Christmas items.
A very simple one is to give the pineapple a snowy effect, which consists of painting the upper end of each of its leaves white.
You can create a Christmas wreath by gluing all the pinecones to a smooth surface that already has the shape you like: heart, circle, etc. You can give them more different effects or add other items, depending on your tastes, but only they are going to be precious.
If you want a striking Christmas tree, you can also create it by painting the pinecones in green tones and, if the pineapple is open, it will be easy to hang Christmas decoration objects from it (you have to make them scale) and place them on a small pot.
CHRISTMAS DECORATION WITH BALLOONS
The balloons begin to have more representation within the decoration. Before we only used them to give color and bulk, now we find authentic Christmas figures made with balloons.
It is true that they will turn out to be a perishable Christmas item but the flashiness and originality of the same good are worth it.
I think the selected photographs will give you many ideas of the possibilities that you have in hand, yes, nothing to leave the balloons near small children if there is no adult supervision involved.
CHRISTMAS DECORATION FOR THE OFFICE
In this section we are going to show you how you can create a Christmas decoration in your office and, it is also true that some ideas can be used at home as many of the previous ideas can be implemented in your workspace.
It is important to bear in mind that a workspace in which one is comfortable and lively will be much more pleasant, it is a way to get personally involved with that place and it also motivates, makes it easier, and more fun to work.
We can bet on a tree that is small or also one that is made of cardboard and that we can easily make like this one that we show you below.
Therefore, if you are the employer or the person in charge of the office, we encourage you to decorate the Christmas office and involve the employees in the process so that they feel more attached to the place.
CHRISTMAS DECORATION FOR SHOWCASES
During Christmas, it is impossible not to see the shop windows with the most daring, striking, and beautiful Christmas decorations.
As far as shop windows are concerned, it is a classic that the templates of stars and snowflakes that we mentioned earlier are used. Or you can also use vinyl with Christmas motifs that provide durability and an effective result.
For the colors that one should use it is important to take into account what the store offers and what is going to be displayed. It must always be harmonious and depending on the type of business, more classic or more daring.
If one manages to have a showcase that makes an impact, that draws attention as daring or endearing, it will be much easier for people to start talking about it or for it to be shared on social networks, which will involve advertising with the that was not counted.
