Most people will decorate their living room for Christmas with just a Christmas tree. Decorating with just a Christmas tree is fine if you don’t really like Christmas. If you like Christmas you should show your holiday spirit with a fully decorated living room. A decorated living room includes decorations on the wall, mantel, and other furniture. You can even decorate doorways and doors. Here are a few ideas on how to decorate your living room for Christmas.
How can you decorate your living room for Christmas? With a few simple items, and an eye for vacant space, it is easier than you think to decorate your living room for Christmas. The first step is to look around your living room and assess any bare spots in the room. Whether you have coffee tables or end tables or just bare walls with a few decorations your living room will be shining.
As you enter your home, the first place that your eye roams is usually the living room. The living room says a lot about a person. For Christmas, you will want your living room screaming holiday cheer.
You may want to hang mistletoe over your entrance ways. This is a nice reminder of the season. You do not have to pay a fortune for mistletoe if you do not already have some. Dollar Tree has imitation mistletoe for a dollar.
Hanging from your entrance ways you can have garland and lights or if you think that is too much hang one or the other. Lights will decorate the garland and pull your attention away from the center of the room. If you don’t want to decorate the interior of the living room or you just do not have the space to set up Christmas decorations you should decorate the walls and around the edge of your living room.
If you have windows in your living room you can also decorate them on the inside with lights or garland. All the stores have decorations you can plug in on the inside of your windows to face outward or inwards. If you are decorating to let others know you are celebrating get both.
Do not forget to pull the stockings out. If you do not have mantels to hang the stockings from, never fear, the walls are just as good. You can hang your stockings as decorations or utilize the stockings by hanging them near the tree. Be sure to test the weight of the items you are hanging in the stocking so the stocking will not fall during the night after you or Santa fills it.
You could decorate your living room with miniature santas and reindeer, or you could use snowmen, or Christmas trees. Pick a few spots that are really bare on the wall and hang wreaths. If you have an entrance way or mantle, do not forget to loop garland from the edge. Window sills look nice when they are decorated on the inside as well. However you decorate your living room this year, have a Merry Christmas.
