Other Decorative Uses for Christmas Ornaments
Christmas ornaments aren't just for artificial Christmas trees or garlands. Holiday decorations like glass Christmas ornaments or feather toppers can be used to adorn different items around the house! Extend your holiday decor to more than just artificial Christmas trees or freshly cut pine trees this season.
Tree toppers as table centerpieces
Tree toppers offer a touch of festivity and elegance when used as a centerpiece during holiday parties. Place a tree topper in the middle of the table as a conversation piece, and surround it with tinsel or small Christmas balls. Santa Claus in the middle of the dinner table adds a cheerful touch.
To create a holiday party invitation your guests can't resist, use inexpensive yet beautiful Christmas ornaments to accent your invites. Simply punch a hole on the stationery and string up a tiny ornament through it , allowing it to dangle merrily as your friends and loved ones read about your party. This unique detail offers guests a bit of surprise and festive cheer as they receive their summons.
In clear jars or vases
An easy yet beautiful way to use ornaments is to place them in clear jars. Layer similarly colored items together, or use varying hues and textures to denote contrast. Glowing in jars, vases or other clear-colored receptacles, they add holiday spirit to end tables and other flat surfaces.
In beautiful boxes
Similarly, opened boxes that show off ornaments work beautifully as decorative pieces. Buy plain boxes of red, green or any hue that unites your holiday color scheme, and line them with wrapping tissue. You can group by color scheme, size, or leave them in a creative jumble. Placed wherever a decorative touch is needed, for these ornament boxes have the charm of Santa's workshop. They are perfect under Christmas trees too!
As window or ceiling hangings
Use ribbon to hang Christmas ornaments as mobiles or window hangings in different rooms. Create layers of interest by using different lengths of ribbon. For a coherent theme, use similarly colored or shaped ornaments, or be more creative with contrasting items.
Christmas Ornaments are a great way to adorn your holidays all around the home. Use these ideas today for a festive mood throughout!
