My 10 Beautiful Christmas Decorations
Today, I’m sharing my 10 beautiful Christmas decorations that I love to add to my home.
I don’t know about you, but Christmas is my favorite time of year.
It starts way before Thanksgiving for me.
By the time we are gathered around the table for Thanksgiving, you can see Christmas has already appeared in my home.
My dad will ask if I haven’t done it already, where is your tree?
That leads to my #1 favorite of my 10 Christmas decorations. The Christmas tree.
There is something magical about the Christmas tree.
Maybe it was the times when I was a kid, and excitement rose in my heart as I hung out under the tree looking up at the twinkling lights.
Just rejoicing in my heart that Christmas was almost here.
Did you hang out under the tree, too, when you were a kid?
The Christmas tree in the photo above was so bright by all of the white lights that it filled the room.
Talk about magical.
There were no photos that could do this justice.
The Christmas tree below has all of my favorite ornaments.
Like the white dove ornaments and the 4×4 white frames with our family’s favorite photos.
I got the idea to hang frames on our tree from Lisa from Farmhouse on Boone.
She shared a quick DIY by adding a jute string to the back, making a loop, and securing it with hot glue. So easy!
I did that and it looks amazing!
#2. Vintage-inspired prints are another favorite of my 10 beautiful Christmas decorations.
When I see precious prints like this one with the little girl reading a book to her dollies and stuffed animals it brings back memories.
Linking the print from Etsy. It’s on sale for under $2.
Even though this print doesn’t have a Christmas theme, it has that old-fashioned red and white quilt that gives it a Christmas feel.
The other favorite decoration for Christmas is this large 16×24 print of Santa Clause with the little girl whispering her Christmas wish in his ear. So adorable.
These prints are so affordable and bring a nostalgic look to my wall.
This photo was from last year. I plan on bringing these back this year. They are too cute not to.
#3. This dictionary paper wreath is a show-stopper.
It has a nostalgic old fashioned look and was pretty easy to make.
Here is a tutorial how to make it, here.
I love DIYs like this that were created with my own hands.
#4. Another DIY that used dictionary paper is this Gingerbread Man garland.
It was a fun little DIY that added a bit of fun to my gallery wall.
And it was so easy.
I will take you through the simple steps here on how to make it from start to finish.
Something fun to do with kids or grandkids.
The shapes are endless what you can make with dictionary paper.
Like this other lanceolate garland here. Perfect for Christmas.
#5. Adding cozy plaid blankets.
This is an easy decoration that has the perfect cozy Christmas vibes for the season.
Here is the link to this red plaid blanket on my antique sofa.
And those green velvet pillow covers are the perfect green. Not too dark and has that vintage vibe I love.
I love cuddling up in my pajamas, drinking a cup of hot chocolate, and having a cozy blanket to watch Christmas movies.
That is the life!
Here is the other red plaid blanket I love so much.
It’s the one I grab because it has a soft fuzzy underside that adds a little bit more warmth I need during the winter months.
Here is the link to the fuzzy red plaid blanket.
#7. Cowbells to add to a garland on the stairway.
These cowbells are amazing!
They have that old-fashioned farmhouse look.
Plus, they really work.
I hope my cat, Winston, doesn’t discover they jingle this year.
He is so smart and a rascal.
His curiosity gets him in trouble sometimes.
Here is an up-close look at the cowbells.
The link I’m sharing is very similar but doesn’t have the jute rope.
It is so hard to find exact items as years go by because things go out of stock.
But these look pretty close, so I will link them here.
You will get the same look, and for as many as you get, they are a good price.
#8. Nativity set.
Nothing speaks truer about why we celebrate Christmas than having a nativity set.
My set is the Kirkland Signature set from many years ago.
Here is a link to an Etsy seller with a similar set here.
If it is gone by the time you read this, you can find them easily online.
Here is a link for another set here. And another here.
What I love is hanging the angel off of one of my teacup and saucer displays on my wall as she looks down at baby Jesus.
It gives a sweet look on my wall and adds to the magic of Christmas, having it in my dining room.
That was last year. Let’s see where I put it this year.
#9. Red transferware.
Red transferware adds a beautiful touch to the Christmas season.
They have a holiday feel on their own.
Tucking them inside a file cabinet like the one in the photo is an idea.
Or putting them on plate holders to place them on a dresser, buffet, or console is super easy to do and adds a vintage charm.
Simply adding a few red vintage transferware on the wall is a lovely addition for Christmas decorating.
I love adding these where ever I can.
They are so pretty!
I share all about ironstone here.
I must love ironstone or something. Wink.
#10: Little Christmas trees.
This could not be more sweeter and oh so easy!
Adding a sweet little Christmas tree can instantly decorate any space in your home.
I love to add these teensy ones on shelves.
I received this one from a dear friend.
When I came home after meeting up with her, I found a place right here.
You are getting a sneak peek into what my theme for Christmas will be.
You got it! Little green Christmas trees.
Now you have the insider scoop on what I’m doing this year for Christmas.
Eek! I’m so excited! Now, I have to get busy!!!
I hope you enjoyed my 10 beautiful Christmas decorations.
