Christmas Items Needed for Decorating Your Home

Christmas Items Needed for Decorating Your Home

If you enjoy decorating for the holidays, then Christmas is a fun time to add color and aroma to your home. There are thousands of things you can do from a few simple items. These essentials can be used in a variety of ways to make every home look and feel different. In addition, you can change the way you use them each year to keep your home looking fresh.

Christmas Trees

Christmas trees come in a variety of colors and sizes. You can find trees that are pre-lit, as well as trees that are fiber optic. Depending on the theme you are creating in your home, you can go with the standard green tree, or you can find full size trees that are white, purple, pink, and even rainbow. These fun colors make for great additions to game rooms or purchased as table tops for decorations. Finally, you can forgo the fake tree and add nature into your house by having a real tree as your Christmas tree.


Christmas tree lights can be strung around the tree or around the home. However, you can also take these lights and dangle them around the inside of your home to add spirit without worrying about the outside elements. Lights make a great table runner, as well as wrapped around center pieces. They are inexpensive and come in a variety of color patterns. If you are concerned about the electric bill, plug the lights into a timer so you will not have to worry about turning them off.

Pinecones and Holly

You can decorate anything inside and out with a few well-placed pinecones and holly. For example, consider placing an arrangement on top of your mailbox or on a porch chair cushion. You can use it inside and a centerpiece, or add some essential oils to make a potpourri upon entering the home. When combined with candles and a string of lights, you can quickly (and cheaply) bring life to your fire place mantle. You do not even need to purchase the pinecones; you can ask neighbors for them or take your family on a nature hike during the fall.


Finally, your family should have at least one wreath to hang on the front door of your home. However, wreaths also make beautiful pieces when hung on your mantle, or used as the base for a centerpiece. Wreaths can be bought, but you can also create a memorable family tradition of making one together each year. If you are using real branches in your wreath, you will want to prepare them so you do not create a fire hazard.

If your family is religious, you may feel it is a necessity to have the nativity on display somewhere in your home. There are a variety of styles and they add an admiration regardless of where they are placed. Unlike the other essentials, nativities are not a decoration that can be used in a variety of ways, but it still adds the feeling of Christmas when on display.
