7 Great “Think Beyond a Wreath” Fireplace Christmas Decor
The best DIY Christmas decor ideas for thinking beyond a basic wreath fireplace display. For your holiday mantel, your porch or anywhere!
It’s no secret: I LOVE Christmas — actually, the whole holiday season.
Particularly the decorating! And digging deeper, it’s all about making my decor pieces! I love a fully decorated home, but I’m also
cheap super thrifty. And I love the challenge of seeing what I can make, makeover, or just freshen for each new season.
So I’m sharing with you seven of my favorite Christmas decor projects.
Best part, they can be adapted to a multitude of styles. Do you like your holidays to be elegant? Old world traditional? Modern farmhouse? Coastal Grandma? Cottage? Woodsy? Urban Minimalist?
You get the idea! The basic project can be easily altered to perfectly compliment your home, your aesthetic, your colors!
Go for it and make it totally your own! Isn’t that a big chunk of crafting fun?
1) Bleached & Frosted Pinecones
Pinecones have been making an appearance in our holidays for decades now. I never get tired of them. But a fresh take is always welcome.
Here I’ve bleached them and then added some frosting!
Now they sparkle in the candlelight and it makes my heart so happy.
2) Boho Garland
Those pinecones. Yes, they look great sitting about.
But really, they were crying out to join forces with my rattan garland. A truly beautiful union to come from my craft room!
3) A Reclaimed Wood Sign
Reclaimed wood doesn’t have to mean farmhouse. How about some leftover plank flooring for an urban minimalist style? How about some wood planks painted in the softest chippy pastels for a touch of cottagecore?
And the sentiment? of course, use a snippet of holiday cheer that resonates with you, your family, your style.
Prop your sign as a welcome on the porch. Or in the kitchen. On the stair ledge. Anywhere, really!
It’s all right here.
4) Lamp Posts For Christmas Decor
Particularly great for any dark spot where a power source is sadly missing. Here’s my secret!
I made this pair for less than $25 in under an hour.
Bonus: they transition perfectly through Winter.
5) Ice Skates Decor Accessory
Here’s a delightful way to enjoy the nostalgia of your old ice skates. Or perhaps a pair you score when thrifting.
Rather than hanging them, use them in a tablescape, as bookends, on the porch, on the powder room countertop. Anywhere. PLUS: easy transition into Winter decor.
So much more flexible that hanging them in a wreath. Check out how we made the stands.
6) Christmas Decor Buoys
Yes! Buoys. They are such a fun seasonal nod to lake life or coastal living.
It’s a fun project that’s easy to personalize! And it’s all right here.
7) Blue & White Christmas Trees
Are you a sucker for blue and white too? I love a blue and white Christmas!!!
You won’t believe what I made these from! So easy peasy and strangely satisfying. If you’re on team Blue & White, you definitely want to add these to your decorating stash.
