Twinkle, twinkle

Twinkle lightsDo something new with your festive decor this time around … think outside the box!  Yes, a Christmas tree decorated with your favorite ornaments and sitting in the corner of your family room is lovely, but let’s try something different this year … make more of a statement.  Hang ornaments from your chandelier, fill large vases with branches, greenery and ribbons … put your outdoor greenery in galvanized buckets with birch branches.  Frame Christmas themed photos or cards in small matching frames and hang or lean them on a ledge, in a grouping.  Decorate tables tops with candy … fill clear jars and vases with dollar-store Christmas candy and candy canes, lots of them.  Speaking of ‘lots’, just when you think you have enough mini-lights, double it!  More is always better in the light department.  Try bunching up strings of lights and stuffing them in jars, vases, hurricanes, lanterns … and then add more!

Don’t spread things too thin … choose a corner, or an area in the room and pile it on.  Grouping and layering things will have way more effect than scattering decorations here and there around the entire space.

Tuck winterberry branches into small potted evergreens, on either side of your front door.  Instead of dusting off the same old wreath every year, purchase a a real evergreen swag from your big-box store and add pine cones, winterberry, boxwood sprigs.

Buy one of those great big cylinders of shiny ball ornaments and string them together using fishing line bunching them up as you go, then lay the finished product across your mantel or console table.

Think different, think bold, think big this Christmas!
