Are you gearing up to decorate for the holidays? If so, you’re likely thinking of the same holiday villages, snowmen, and Santa Claus decals. While these are all great options, at Half Price Drapes we’re making a point of thinking outside the box this holiday season. Here are some of the most interesting ideas we’ve seen for holiday decorating this year.
Think about overdoing it
The holidays are all about indulgence so why not take something you love and double or triple it? For example, for a more dramatic take on your favorite holiday wreath, why just hang one on the door when you could have three or four? You can be sure your guests will take notice and you’ll feel four times as merry every time you come home.
Let fruit sparkle and shine
No matter where you live, bringing in the look of snow, ice, and shine is a great way to get into the holiday season. We recommend taking your favorite, bright, festive fruits and covering them in a combination of white and silver glitter. Of course, this will make your fruit inedible but it’ll also turn it into a unique, sparkling centerpiece.
Put an edible tree in the kitchen
If you don’t have the room for a holiday tree in your living room, grab the smallest one you can find, prop it up on a kitchen counter, and decorate it with your favorite snacks. Yes, that could mean the classic popcorn strings, but once again we encourage you think outside the box. What about ribbon candy? Or strings strung with gumdrops?
Now is the perfect time to replace your curtains
While it’s not likely that you want to invest in curtains just for your holiday celebrations, could there possibly be a better time to rethink your window coverings? Grab a pair of green velvet curtains and let them showcase your holiday side, or find some red sheer curtains that take your breath away.
Use materials that no one is expecting
For those folks who love their classic decorations, you can stick with the classics but use materials you wouldn’t normally see. For example, decorate a mantel with the typical greenery you’d expect, but add in some unique colored feathers. This will be quite a surprise but will stay well within the typical scope of holiday decorating.
