A strand of snowfall lights and cascading paper bows can easily transform your home for the holidays. Or, use simple craft supplies to create a stunning ornament that doubles as a tree topper. Simply cut a square of parchment paper and place an ornament in the middle. Wrap the paper around the ornament and twist both ends to secure, then tie with a decorative bow on either end. Hang your new ornament in a window or on a door for a festive accent that never goes out of style.

Deck the Halls: Creative Holiday Decoration Ideas to Spread Festive Cheer

Swap a traditional quilted tree skirt for a brass one for a modern look. Or, add a touch of sparkle with a glittering garland. If you prefer a more understated style, a woven or faux fur tree collar can give your design an on-trend finish.

Greet guests with a winter wonderland entry display. For a classic touch, drape sprigs of pine and evergreen garland topped with berries and ornaments over an indoor stair railing. To create a more updated look, use a footed silver serving tray to showcase a centerpiece of pinecones and other natural elements like crocosmia pods and abelia branches adorned with floral picks.
