10 Extreme Décor Tricks to Amp Up Your Christmas

October 23, 2016

Christmas is approaching fast and it’s time to start thinking about your Christmas décor. If you want something grandiose and unique this year, we’ve selected 10 extreme tricks that’ll amp up your Christmas décor.

1. Create a holiday ‘shelfie’

Pick an open shelf in your home, clear it from its current possessions and fill with Christmas décor. Add ornaments, a few wrapped up gifts, pinecones, and a bowl of Christmas sweets for a quick ‘shelfie’.

2. Opt for artificial tree

Get over the fear that artificial trees look cheesy. You will save a lot of time picking it out and cleaning your home from tree leaves. Just focus on getting ornaments that have the same feel – the season’s hottest look is a rustic bauble design.

3. Say it with scent

Sometimes scent is all you need to create the right Christmas feel. Every morning, boil sliced oranges and cloves in your kettle and let the Christmas-scents take over your home.

5. Wrap it in luxury

If you have some luxurious wallpaper hanging about or you don’t mind getting a few test pieces, you can use it to wrap your gifts. It creates a sturdier look and adds a bit more elegance to your décor.

6. Go for gold

Gold is a must-have décor colour for Christmas. Use gold-tinted baubles, golden hue fairy lights or large golden fabrics, such as curtains and rugs, to add that festive-feel to your décor.

7. Use oranges and cloves

You can add the scent and the Christmas-look to your hallway with the help of oranges and cloves. Stud cloves into your oranges – you can even create designs with them – and place them in a bowl for a quick décor element.

8. Bring nature to your table

Use painted pinecones as your table cards on the table to add an earthy-feel to your table. You can also add a single sprig of pine to your guests’ plates for added Christmas-feel.

9. Brown paper bag treats

Add tiny brown paper bags with homemade treats to your home as a decorative element and a fun gift to give for surprise guests. You’ll only need a bit of colourful ribbon to create a bow around the bag and a simple tag to wish ‘Merry Christmas!’

10. Simple metallic white elegance

You don’t need to take your décor to an extreme to create a show-stopping look. Get a simple metallic vase, with an industrial feel, and fill it with white amaryllis for a stunning look.

Final touches

Before you pick your favourites from the above list and start decorating, it’s a good idea to take a moment. If you don’t want to spend a fortune with your Christmas decorations, you need to plan your project well. This also means checking out where to buy the crafting materials. For smaller crafting materials, check out shops like The Works, and for bigger home improvements you want to see if retailers, like Leekes.co.uk, have discounts to cover your shopping. Once you have all your crafting materials, create a step-by-step plan and don’t rush your project. It’s easy to mess up a décor project just by rushing it.

Above all, go with designs and ideas you love, and which fit your home. Decorating can be fun and relaxing, adding that extra bit of magic to your Christmas.
