Holidays are one of the most exciting times of the year. We all look forward to it not only because we are free from work but mostly because we can spend time enjoying the company of family and friends. It is a time of good cheer indeed, looking forward to the celebration, good food, and making our homes look extra special with holiday decorations. The best part about decorating for the holidays is having the company of family members helping each other to bring that holiday spirit inside your home. Decorating does not need to be expensive to look beautiful. There are DIY Christmas decor projects you can start such as Christmas wreaths, stockings, and other Christmas ornaments using hessian fabric from Dalston MIll that will be unique because you made them yourself.
Read on for tips on how to give your home that holiday feeling with decors.
Choose your colour scheme
Try and keep things simple by choosing two colours for your Christmas decorations. Most people would go for the traditional red and green, but there is no reason why you shouldn’t use other shades such as purple and orange or blue and silver. The next step is to figure out a way to complement whatever furniture and decor you already have. You can make things look more consistent with ribbons, Christmas-scented candles and flowers. You can incorporate different shades of your chosen colours to break the monotony and create a more modern look inside your home.
Make use of your ornaments in different ways
Everyone loves to cover Christmas trees with loads of ornaments. Still, you can make use of some of the extra Christmas balls and ornaments to decorate other areas of your home. A pretty bowl or clear jar filled with brightly-coloured balls can cheer up a table in one area of the room. You can also arrange them in varying heights for added style. Create a beautiful centrepiece on your Christmas table using your ornaments, pine cones, and evergreens on a serving dish. Dress up your windows as well with a garland of greens, decorated with ribbons in your colour scheme along with other Christmas ornaments you have.
Bring in the green
Plants brighten up any room any time of the year. Holidays can always use more of them. Branch foliage and flowers can be beautifully arranged and set in the corner of the room to add more colour and enhance the Christmas look. You can even add some ribbons in your colour scheme. Pick out plants and blooms in various autumnal colours and cheer up your home.

With family and friends gathered around, there can be no better feeling than this.
