The best part about being in India is that the celebration never ends. Have you got your Diwali decorations down yet? Okay then, take a deep, relaxing breath. And let’s get ready for Christmas! Today I have some really cute and super easy Christmas decor ideas for you.
If you’re tired of putting up and pulling down your Diwali decor and have decided not to get into it all over again you should stop reading right now. Because by the end of this post you will WANT to decorate! So here goes.
Cute & Easy Christmas Decor Ideas:
What better place to declare Christmas has come home, than right at the entrance? Here are some simple ways to decorate your door. You can use these on all the room doors inside too.
Lots of different types of wreaths that you can buy online or in shops and so many DIYs for you to make your own. A simple wreath on your door will always say ‘Christmas’.
(2) Bow and Tags:
Take some mount board and pen in your favourite Christmas greeting. Tie a huge red bow on it and hang it on the door. Simple, innovative and so cute! You can buy the ones in the pic here.
Stick together a bunch of snowflakes or string each one separately. Hang a whole bunch of them on your door with a ribbon.
(4) Santa Caps:
Santa caps are easily available pretty much everywhere. Fill up one with your favourite Christmas decor accessories and hang it on the door.
(5) Pine Cones:
Again, string them up into a bunch and hang them on your door with a big bow.
(6) Clothes Hanger Mobile:
Tie a few of your favourite Christmas tree ornaments onto a clothes hanger and hang that from your door.
(7) Mittens or Gloves:
Have an extra pair of gloves or mittens lying around? Fill it up with Christmas decor items and use on the door. You can do this with Christmas stockings too.
You can hang each one of these door decor items above on any door or wardrobe shutter or even on the walls as wall decor to add bits of Christmas accents all over your home.
Next come the windows. Every room has one and decorating them is easy because it usually doesn’t get in the way of anything. So here are some easy Christmas decor ideas for windows.
(8) Santa Caps:
Stitch together a number of Santa caps in a line to make a valance for your windows or doors.
(9) Pine Cones:
Strings of pine cones hanging like a screen in front of your window. If you like simple and minimalistic and are not into having red and green all over your home, this is perfect for you.
(10) Christmas Ornaments:
On the other hand, if you like bursts of colour you can do something similar using Christmas ornaments of different shapes, sizes and colours.
(11) Twinkle Lights:
Always and forever decor for any possible festival or celebration, anywhere inside or out of the house. But especially at Christmas in your window, when you’re thinking of snowy nights and starry skies.
Do you remember how I decorated my living room window for Christmas last year? I cut out these snowflakes on paper and stuck them on the glass with some 2 sided tape. The sunlight streaming in through the snowflakes looked beautiful. You can check out how I did it here.
Around the Home:
Now that we’re done with our doors and windows, let’s spread the Christmas cheer around the rest of our homes. We have some really easy Christmas decor ideas here too.
I still associate Christmas with Santa Claus and a tree piled up with gifts. So nothing like gifts to get home the Christmas feel.
Take all your empty boxes, big and small, gift wrap them beautifully and use them as Christmas decor.
(14) Wall Christmas Tree:
And then there’s the Christmas tree, another essential. But not all of us have trees at home, and some of us don’t have the space for a tree even if we wanted one. This is a great idea to make up for that. You’ll need a length of artificial pine garland, string lights, tree ornaments and loads of tape to keep it all in place!
Search Christmas decor on Google and you’ll have lots of pics with stockings lining a fireplace mantle. But most of us in India don’t have (and don’t need!) fireplaces. No worries. Bring out the stockings anyways. Use a twig such as this or a clothes hanger as above. Or use your side board or chest of drawers like a mantle and line them up along the edge.
You could monogram them with the initials of your family members if you plan to gifts in them on Christmas eve!
(16) Let Words Unleash the Magic:
There are some words we automatically associate with Christmas. Use them around the home to decorate with. They’re happy words with lots of good energy anyways!
You could monogram jars, paint them onto napkins or use cutouts on your walls and doors.
I love this string along the window. I can hear the music in my head when I see the words!
Hang Christmas ornaments from your chandeliers and wall lamps to add to the festive feel.
Table Decor and Centerpieces:
And then there are all the tables in the home. Whether you create centerpieces for your dining table or smaller ones for your sideboards and side tables, the little bits of decor will bring Christmas cheer to your home.
(18) Glass Jars:
Take a few glass jars, bowls and glasses in different sizes and shapes, fill them up with Christmas ornaments and place them on your tables.
Candles = Christmas.
Take a tray or a plate and fill it up with candles of different sizes and that’s one of many easy Christmas decor ideas right there.
(20) Red Bows:
Take pretty much anything and tie a red bow to it.
A glass jar filled with candy…
Or one filled with flowers…
Or a red bow around a candle.
In fact, if you scroll up and see all our ideas listed above, many of them include a large bow.. and most of them are red. You’re right, green, gold and silver would do too! Add a big bow to anything to make it a little more Christmas-y.
As you can see, it’s not too difficult to decorate your home for Christmas, especially with our super easy Christmas decor ideas. So let’s get the festive season home and begin celebrating once again!
