Doors don’t have to be decorated with wreaths, and fridges and staircases don’t have to be left bare. I’m a real Christmas freak so when the time come around, I like to pull out all the stops to decorate the entire house; inside and out. I’ve collected some of my absolute favorite festive home decorations so that not only will be people amazed when they walk in your house, but their jaws will drop even when they’re just passing by the outside, too.

This is ridiculously easy to make and looks so awesome! I like the rustic look of the wood, so I’d like to keep it outside, but it’ll work just about anywhere. You can even paint the wood if you want something a bit more colorful.

Bring the elves to the table by folding your napkins either as little elf hats or shoes; they’re just as adorable as each other! You need not be an origami expert: it’s easy to do and will really give that table of yours just that extra touch to make everyone’s smiles just that little bit bigger.

Cotton Ball Snow
Have you ever noticed how cotton balls look like little snowballs? Someone came up with the brilliant idea of stringing them together to make a snowball garland and I’m in love with the white Christmas! You can hang this literally anywhere; the more strings the merrier!
If you like a little bit of darkness at Christmas then instead of turning your door into a giant Santa or Snowman, turn it into the Grinch! If you have the colored paper lying around t home then you can certainly use that, but bear in mind that felt with last longer and be more durable in the cold weather.
