We have saved some of our biggest inside tips for lucky last. Following are our Christmas décor gurus’ simple ideas for creating festive cheer throughout the entire home. Have you thought of these places yet?
#1 Wet Area Spaces
Not really a place that Santa will pay a visit on Christmas Eve, however the bathroom (or the amenities) is certainly one of those places that is likely to get a workout by friends and family visiting over the holidays. You can kit out the bathroom and wet areas just as you would any other area of your home.
Depending on your Christmas theme, or that of your home, you might like to use some of these Christmas décor ideas that are ideal for a wet area.
Sand and Shells
Make a simple Christmas candle décor piece by placing some sand into the bottom of a mason jar, add some small shells then a tealight candle. Wrap the jar with some Christmas ribbon (our champagne and braided ribbons are perfect) and place it on the benchtop or a shelf. For maximum impact, surround your Christmas candle with some greenery Christmas sprays or a garland of greenery if space permits.
Alternatively, you can hang some beach-inspired Christmas tree decorations, like our range of starfish and shells, along the top of your bathroom window, bathroom mirror, or dangled from the ceiling as a cute Christmas mobile ornament.
For another Christmas décor idea with sand and shells, simply fill a couple of Christmas craft baubles in a similar fashion with sand and shells, or small pieces or driftwood, and place them around the room. Or add these to your Christmas mobile ornament to hang from the ceiling also.
Hang a Rope Ladder
#2 On the Doors
As we mentioned above, your amenities are an area likely to have visitors over Christmas if you are playing host to any festivities. And the door of such area/s is another space where you can hang some festive cheer! Make it very easy on yourself this close to the main event by making use of a DIY wreath kit.
You can place a Christmas wreath on any door of the home, anywhere you think might get some traffic over Christmas.
#3 Glorious Garlands
Garlands make wonderful Christmas décor ideas as they are one of the most versatile pieces you can have laying around. You can fill many bland and empty spaces with a garland. Hang them on a railing inside the home; along the pool fence in your alfresco area; twisted up the chain of a pendant light; or simply run them along the centre of a table for decorative impact.
* Tip: for maximum impact on a table, wind a garland around a few Christmas ornaments that coincide with your Christmas theme. Mix and match the height of the ornaments to create depth and more interest.
#4 Welcome the Walls
When it comes to Christmas décor ideas, walls make great spaces for adding festive cheer too. You can choose from simple Christmas posters in a frame, 3D Christmas wall art, or personalised plaques and signs that include a special message to your guests.
