How to decorate your Christmas Tree like a Designer without spending a fortune. If you love keeping up with the Christmas Decoration trends but can’t afford to buy all new decor each year check out my tips for keeping your Christmas Budget low.
If you love the way Design Bloggers can change up their Christmas Decor each year to get a different look and feeling and wonder how you can do the same without spending a fortune on new decorations each year I have some tips for you. This year I’m changing up my Christmas Color Scheme. Last year I loved the “Magnolia Hearth and Hand” Look of Black, White, and Green. This year I’m thinking more Gold, Navy and Blush. But everything I own for Christmas is RED. I have a lot, lot, lot of red. So I’m sharing with you some of the things I did this year to completely change my Christmas Decor.
Invest in basic pieces:
Spend your money on the things you will use every year. Such as your Christmas Tree, Pine Garland, and Wreath. Once you have these basic items you can change them up each year with accessories. Some of my favorites including the ones I purchased this year are below.
2. Use Ribbon:
An easy way to change your color scheme from year to year is to buy new ribbon in your desired colors. This can be used to accent your Tree, Garland, and wreath and can even be used on your Dining Table or Chairs. Everything from burlap, to velvet and satin ribbon will look amazing on a tree.
3. Buy Basic Ball ornaments in your new color scheme:
A great way to add a lot of one specific color to your tree is to purchase a set of ball ornaments in your color. Many sets of 60-100 ornaments are only $25. For $25 that’s a lot of color impact on your tree!
4. Pick up some Floral Picks at your craft store:
Floral picks are an easy way to add depth to your greenery. Adding some trendy Eucalyptus or lambs ear to your garland, tree or wreath can make it look fuller and on trend. Glitter or Rose or Hydrangea picks are great for a pop of pretty on an elegant Christmas Tree. And You can never go wrong with adding red berries to your tree.
Paper decorations are wonderful for filling in space with very little cost. Try hanging paper snowflakes in your hallway, make a “Merry Christmas” banner to hang on the front of your tree, or print some free printables in your new color scheme to fill the frames throughout your house. These crafts can easily be made in whatever your color scheme and whatever size you need. If you aren’t crafty at all, check Pinterest for lots of free printable options.
6. Dig through your existing decor:
I’m sure even if you’re completely changing your Christmas color scheme, (like me this year…I am using no red in our first floor decorations.) chances are you have a few ornaments that someone gave you as a gift that will match your scheme that you can use to fill in the gaps on your tree. Also consider items that might not be ornaments but you can buy in sets or might already have, like Christmas cookie cutters or mini frames from the dollar store that you can fill with images in any color, or even little burlap canvases or chalkboards, just write some Christmas phrases on them and place throughout your tree.
7. Add miscellaneous items around the base of your tree:
To complete your look wrap faux presents in coordinating wrapping paper, or place pillows and blankets in your color scheme around the base of the tree. Consider other decor items you may have around the house too, like candles (flameless of course), lanterns, vintage winter items like sleds, ice skates, buckets, and baskets. These are all great items to make your tree look finished.
