If you are expecting guests for this year’s Christmas , I have collected today some really great ideas for your holiday decor. And you will definitely need one because your guests will expect you to surprise and impress them. Well, I can assure your that decorating for Christmas is not a big deal. You only need to know this and that, to have some extra bucks and a good knowledge if your local dollar and crafts stores and you will be able to make an unique, inspiring and welcoming atmosphere for Christmas.
Today I am going to give you hint about decorating with garlands. Christmas garlands are one of those elements inside a house that are able to transform its interior completely only with their presence. So, let’s have a look at some fine examples.
Christmas Garland Designs
There are many available ideas these days. Some people prefer handmade paper garlands made of colorful paper sheets. This is actually a great way to involve your kids with the holiday decor. They will love to spend some time with you cutting out templates and funny figures that will later be used for your garland.
Others prefer garlands made of extraordinary items, like the cones collected from the afternoon walk in the streets outside the house. This is another fantastic way to create unique and spectacular holiday interior. There are also people who like the swag garlands. It really depends on your taste and the guest your are expecting. If the kids are coming, just surprise them with something joyful because you know kids – they like to laugh and really enjoy colorful things.
Christmas Garland Ideas
And now, the million dollars question – Where should I place the garlands? Well, there are some traditional places that are really very suitable for your holiday garlands. These are the:
- Fireplace mantel
– This is simply a classic placement. Be sure to have your Christmas tree nearby full of shiny Christmas balls and the holiday spirit will be at its maximum.
- Front Door
– another very traditional and yet stylish place to hang your Christmas garland. Just remember the golden rule for the entrance door: Outside – the wreath, inside – the garland!
- The staircase
– I adore Christmas garlands placed just on the railings of a good looking staircase. If you have a second level, do not hesitate to install your garland on the staircase. Everybody will love it! You can complete the festive look with Christmas lights.
- Above the window
– This is not a typical place for a holiday garland but go ahead and experiment with some non-traditional placements and you will be charmed by the positive effect they can actually achieve.
