With only a week left for Christmas, we are all keen to deck up our homes with Christmas trees laden with cute decorations, stars and cribs. While it’s tempting to buy fancy ready-made decors available in the market, most of us also like to enhance the beauty of our homes with theme/colour based decoratives. We bring ten such creative ideas to try this Christmas.
Make your doorstep beautiful
For a winter-filled festive look, arrange lanterns filled with colorful ornaments at the doorstep, to give a desi look to the decor add colourful lights on the gate or at the main entrance.
Attempt this wreath
Wreaths are synonymous with Christmas decorations. Wreaths can be made using origami papers, colour paper or newspapers by folding papers to make stars, flowers, other decorations. Take a cardboard and make two large circles on it, one inside the other, cut along the outer circle border and the inner circle and place creatives on the wreath. Hang them at the entrance door or room doors.
Make your own Christmas manger scene
Christmas decorations are never complete without a crib. Considering the space available create a beautiful Christmas manger scene with small items such as a wooden hut, chart paper, confetti, pebbles, stones, straw, and clay especially to make wells, roads, and bridges.
Decorate the Christmas tree creatively
Christmas tree grabs the utmost attention amongst all Christmas decor. Decorating it with food items like apples, chocolates, coloured ornaments, advent inspired cards, colorful pom-poms will make it look all the more attractive. Having colour themed decorations like red and green, white and red, white and blue, blue and silver are also good options.
Make the study table look beautiful
Grab some dry branches and twigs, glue, sequins, buttons, marbles, glitters, small pebbles, stars etc. Apply spray paint to the twigs, set it in a small glass bottle or vase, and then decorate it with all objects. You can keep this on the study table for the unique Christmas look!
Try some paper stars
Cut out stars from color charts and glitter them. Place them on a cardboard and then hang it on the wall of your rooms. Likewise, you can use these paper stars for decorating the Christmas tree as well.
Dress your dining table
Fill a three-tiered cake stand with winter fruits, like pears and pomegranates, and use it as a centerpiece on your dining table. You can also choose fresh flowers for a simple, neutral table.
Try candle votives
One of the best ways to add soft tones to your home is through candle votives with Christmas themed-prints and place them on a side table near the window.

The corners of your homes can be made to look beautiful by creating a formal and elegant Christmas centerpiece with white/silver vases containing red roses surrounded by white tallow berries, reindeers and a Santa Claus.
