Once again, the festive season is upon the world and it is time to celebrate Christmas with renewed gusto. If you want your Christmas preparation to be different than last year, you can do so by changing up your decorations and trying something unique. Here are a few ideas that you can use to create innovative Christmas decorations.

1. Garden basket

Everyone hangs mistletoe on their front doors during Christmas time. What will you do to make your mistletoe different? Make a garden basket which can be hanged on the front door in the middle of your mistletoe. Buy a wrought iron hanging rack, create a bouquet of Christmas flowers including Christmas rose, ivy, cactus and holly, add Christmas balls and other traditional knick-knacks and hang the rack on your door. Place the mistletoe around your garden basket to create a truly unique Christmas decoration.

2. Red Bows

Have you thought about the fact that you could be underutilizing red bows for Christmas decorations? It is not necessary that you should use bows only in decorating Christmas trees and gifts. You can also use these bows creatively to decorate your mailbox, tree trunks in the garden, pillars in the driveway and doorknobs in every room. Add a customized touch to your red bows by pasting sequined patterns on them. You can also attach red bows to stuff toys if you want to decorate a kid’s room.

3. Dry twig decorations

Not many people would think of using dry twigs in Christmas decorations but if they are done up the right way, they can make a living space look very sophisticated. Buy a see through vase and place a few colorful stones in its base. Place a few dry twigs in the vase and separate each twig. Get some red light bulbs and place one bulb on each twig extension. If the base of your vase is wide, you can also intersperse a few white candles in between. This unique decoration has the potential to become a conversation starter.

4. Christmas wall art

Wall art has become very popular off late because it can be peeled, pasted and removed whenever required. If you don’t want to do away with any of your traditional Christmas decorations but you still want a touch of uniqueness, use Christmas themed wall art for the festive period. Pick wall art in the shape of a Christmas tree, reindeer, Santa clause, Christmas presents or any other traditional Christmas motif.

5. Decorative curtains

Create a customized Christmas decoration by using a mix of traditional Christmas decorations and fresh ideas. Make long beaded strings that you can attach to your curtain rod in replacement of the existing curtains. Gather readymade shiny Christmas balls, red bows, reindeer, miniature Christmas trees, fake plastic Holly, plastic snowflakes and a Star of Bethlehem. Embed them on the beaded strings in an equidistant manner. Alternate one such string with another one that includes fresh decoration ideas in the form of alphabet paper cutouts that spell your family name.

6. Christmas lanterns

Most people use candles to light up their homes during Christmas but not many make use of lanterns. Purchase tin lanterns available in the market. Paint the frames in a color combination of red and white. Put candles, sweets or other decorations inside the lanterns and place them in different corners of your house.
