LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS DECORATING IDEAS

Christmas is just around the corner!

If you’ve had no time for decorating this year, or need some last minute party prep, we’ve got you sorted! 

We’ve compiled a list of our top 6  favourite ways to deck your home in style:

  1. LIGHTS

Lights don’t only belong on a tree or the front of the house. Try placing some string lights in different size lanterns or glass domes around the house or even woven through green garland would look beautiful!

  1. ORNAMENTS

There are so many places to hang ornaments beyond a tree! Make the most out of all your decorations by hanging your decorations off some ribbon that matches your space from a bannister, a window or a doorway. We saw this one on Better Homes and Gardens.

  1. MASON JARS:

We know the decorating ideas for Mason Jars are endless, but our personal favourite are these Mason jar snow globes. Simply add a small tree (or snowman, or Santa or any small ornament) to the bottom with some glue and add in fake snow! So simple but so cute! Mason jars also make great candle holders and they are perfect for serving your favourite Christmas drinks!

  1. CHRISTMAS CARD DISPLAY

Display your Christmas greetings by hanging some wire or fairy lights on a free area in your home and attach the cards with small decorative pegs. – Not only do get a tidy place for all your Christmas cards, you also create an easy Christmas wall decor! It’s a win-win.

  1. LITTLE CHRISTMAS TREE

It instantly feels like Christmas once the tree goes up. A small tree is perfect for those who don’t have the time or space for a big tree or if you want your home looking even more Christmassy! Small artificial trees are easy to find and decorate and can be placed almost anywhere in your home!

You can even get really creative by hunting for twigs and sticks around your neighbourhood, rustic is so on trend this year!

  

  1. CHRISTMAS BON BONS

Everyone loves a good Christmas bon bon – and this one’s a cracker! (see what we did there?) All you need for this one is left over Christmas wrapping paper, toilet rolls, ribbon and of course a prize! You can personalise these as much as you like with name tags, lollies, choccies, or toys – whatever you like. (You could even print off some Dad jokes to include, they are always fun to read around the table.)
