Some people have their holiday decor down to a science. Each year, they pull out the mounds of boxes full of ornaments, figurines and lights without even blinking an eye. On the other hand, others are not so prepared. For example, maybe a couple just moved in together, or two roommates simply don't consider themselves crafty. Luckily, there are tactics to make your home look festive using something you may not have thought about before. Here are some easy ways to adorn your home with silk flowers this holiday season:
When it comes to holiday traditions, ornaments are a must. Sure, buying a collector's Disney figurine for your tree might look nice. However, nothing can beat the sentimental value of a handmade ornament. Luckily, there are plenty of different ways to make DIY ornaments. First, pick up a dozen or so glass ornaments from your local craft store. They can come in many shapes, styles and colors. Next, buy the materials to decorate the insides and outsides of these ornaments. Some ideas include:
- Miniature bows.
- Festive silk flowers.
- Fake snow.
- Strips of ribbon.
- Jingle bells.
- Silk petals.
Be sure to take the time to craft these with your partner, family or friend to get you and your home ready for the Christmas season.
Flowers in your tree
The Christmas tree is one of the most important decorations during the holiday season. It's the place where people will gather Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, and it may even shine out your window leading up to the holidays. Making sure it looks great is essential, and there are plenty of ways to spruce up your spruce with innovative adornments, one of those being silk flowers. Adding beautiful, faux flowers to your tree is a lovely way to fill in the gaps. Add some artificial leaves, flowers or berries to make your tree look full and elegant.
Faux flowers are the perfect flair for several reasons. First, they will last the entire holiday season. It doesn't matter if you put your tree up well before Thanksgiving or don't take it down until March, these will look just as good in November as they do in the spring. Also, for those of you who have nosy pets, silk flowers, unlike some real plants and flowers, are non-toxic. That's one less thing to worry about this holiday season.

Wreaths that will last
Nothing completes the holiday vibe more than a wreath on your door. But while wreaths can look beautiful, purchasing large ones can get pretty pricey. Instead of blowing money that you could use for the holidays on a extravagant wreath, take the thriftier road by decorating one yourself. To do so, purchase a artificial wreath. Your local department, craft and even dollar stores will likely have one at a good price. It doesn't matter if it looks aesthetically underwhelming. You'll be adding embellishments that will perk it up big time. Some items to consider adding are:
- Faux mistletoe.
- The letter of your family's last name.
The best part about a faux wreath is that it will last you for years to come. Make sure to use glue that will hold up when adding your festive accessories. That way, all you'll have to do each year is pull it out of storage.
