By now I’m sure you’re well into decorating for the holidays. But I know that sometimes it can be hard to know where to start or what to decorate with! Finding the perfect balance of festive and seasonal while still being fairly quick, easy and accessible is no small task.
That’s why we’ve compiled a list of our favorite Christmas decor ideas to help you decide on the perfect craft to decorate with this holiday season. Consider this our gift to you! Happy Holidays!
Christmas Advent Calendars
To start off our list of favorite Christmas decor ideas, we had to include advent calendars! I love advent calendars, which is probably why we have so many to choose from at The House that Lars Built. Seriously, take your pick: we have such a wide variety that I’m sure one will suit your fancy! The thing I love about advent calendars is that they serve multiple purposes: A gorgeous and seasonal decoration to brighten your spirits, and a built-in count-down to Christmas! Oh, and the bonus of an occasional treat box.
Here’s a list of some of our favorite advents we’ve made over the years:
- Christmas Bulb Advent Calendar
- Paper Advent Village Calendar
- Rainbow Ombre Advent Calendar
- Christmas Village Advent Calendar
Another tried and true Christmas decor idea we love is the garland! Besides sharing a name with the one and only Judy Garland, these sweet Christmas decorations are way to bring instant cheer and warmth to this cold season. We have a wide variety of garlands we’ve made over the years, ranging from paper to real fruit. One thing we love about garlands is that they’re so versatile! You can drape them in front of the mantle, use them to create a table centerpiece, hang them on the bannister, or drape them on the Christmas tree, just to name a few options.
Here are our favorite seasonal Christmas garlands:
- Cranberry Garland
- Christmas Bulb Advent Calendar. The bonus is that this one doubles as an advent calendar!
- Oversized Holly and Berry Garland
- Wood Bead Garland
- Head to Toe Swedish Christmas with Cricut
