Alternative use of wreaths

Just because you can’t use nails doesn’t have to mean that you should skip adding wreaths to your holiday decor. Hang the wreaths on the back of the chairs and turn your dining room into the ultimate gathering space for holiday entertainment.

Leaning the wreath against the wall is another smart alternative that won’t leave holes in the wall. Feel free to enhance your shelf or mantel decor with a leaning wreath for the ultimate decorative touch.

If a Christmas tree doesn’t fit your space or budget, be sure that there are plenty of alternatives to choose from. This minimalist design includes string lights secured with Command hooks, which is a smart trick to avoid wall damage.

Curated Christmas decor

Before you go to the store and splurge on holiday decor, be sure to check the items you already have. Don’t be afraid to get creative and use your current decor to create a nicely curated Christmas vignette. This arrangement looks spectacular and is easy to put together. You could even use your old wooden sleigh for additional charm.

Style your shelves

Enhance your year-round shelf arrangements with festive decor that fits the overall mood. To get started, add a few mini Christmas trees for a natural touch. Layer with framed quotes or holiday-inspired prints, which can be easily DIY-ed to keep within your budget.

Christmas bar

Whether you wish to enjoy a good adult beverage or cozy up with hot cocoa, a minibar will keep your favorite drinks within arm’s reach. If you don’t have a cart, a nice tray will serve as a perfect base for curating a festive bar.

Cozy throws

Available in a wide range of colors and styles, pillow covers are an ideal pick for dressing your home in the holiday spirit. Go for the traditional combination of red and plaid, or make a choice according to your room’s color scheme.
