Unique Christmas Decor Ideas

I realized I haven’t shared a holiday home tour this year and want to share our home in hopes of inspiring you with some unique Christmas decor ideas as you deck your halls.

In our living room, I kept it fairly simple but added lots of color to our Christmas tree (see more details on the tree here).

I switched out my floral artwork for this beautiful wintry scene – which will last well beyond the holidays!

I kept the mantel simple with garland and stockings I found at our local Meijer store.

The basket was thrifted, and I filled it with old glass ornaments.

I added some simple touches to our kitchen as well. My favorite thing to do is to fill glass containers with bulbs. I found a box of bulk gold ornaments at Big Lots.

I love collecting miniature faux pine trees. They are perfect for adding holiday touches throughout your home.

Near our stove, I added another faux pine tree and a glass globe of ornaments and garland over the doorway.

My goal is to make the house festive without feeling too cluttered.

I recently shared our dining room. This space works well from fall into the holidays, and you can find the tutorial for the fruit centerpiece HERE.

I also decorated our master bedroom for the holidays, and you can read all about that tomorrow!

Our library is also decorated, and I love putting a lit Christmas tree in the front of the house so it is visible from the street.

I talk about the blue and gold Christmas tree here and give tips for decorating trees.

The Merry Christmas sign is digital artwork I purchased and printed at Walgreens. I recently discovered that Walgreens can print poster-sized images!

I needed a rug to soften the space, so I stole this one from our upstairs home office.

How are you decking the halls this year?

Simple Christmas Decor

I am excited to be a part of the Seasonal Simplicity Christmas home tour as we share Simple Christmas Decor ideas.  I had to miss the fall blog hop because we were in the middle of a DIY kitchen remodel (to see more on that journey, go HERE)!

If you are here from Making Home Base, welcome!

With all the craziness of the kitchen remodel, my Christmas decor is pretty simple this year.

One of the two Christmas trees is in the family room along with some greenery on the mantel, stockings and a wreath.

The tree is filled with metallic neutral ornaments and little DIY santa photo ornaments.

I absolutely adore putting up these handmade ornaments every year.

The navy walls are new to the space this years and have changed the look of my holiday decor simply by changing the backdrop of the room.

In the kitchen nook, the DIY open shelves are a recent add to the DIY shiplap wall.

The shelves are filled with my kids’ santa pics through the years.  It is pretty obvious how special these photos are to me – I love how you can see them grow from year to year.

Unfortunately now that my 12-year-old is bigger than santa, I’m not sure how much longer the tradition of the pictures with santa will last…

Right off the kitchen, is a cute little hot cocoa bar.

I am a huge fan of my friend Cara’s chalkboard art of Word for Word Chalk Art.

Our second tree is in our library/music room.

This room was my home office, but the piano lost its wall during the kitchen remodel. The $50 painted piano was moved, and I feel so fancy calling the space the music/library room.

The dining room was decorated earlier this fall with greenery that works well for Thanksgiving as well as Christmas (go here to see more on the tablescape and wreaths).

The chalkboard name plates are also a creation by my friend Cara.

Thanks so much for taking the time to tour my home all (simply) decked out for the holidays! Go see Just a Girl and Her Blog for more holiday inspiration!
