Dis­cover dis­play ideas for musthave dec­o­ra­tive ac­ces­sories.

Frosty Fel­lows

Papier-mâché snow­men fig­ures and or­na­ments coated in shim­mery mica glit­ter have long been hol­i­day sta­ples. This new duo of­fers a sim­i­lar look, with stur­dier resin con­struc­tion. Dis­play them to­gether or apart, pair­ing them with a chippy sal­vaged piece to heighten their old-fash­ioned ap­peal.

Christ­mas Catchall

It’s the most won­der­ful time of year for mail—when bills and ad­ver­tis­ing fliers are joined by col­or­ful cards and mis­sives shar­ing hol­i­day greet­ings. Give them a place to shine in a burlap-lined chicken-wire wall bas­ket.

Joy­ful Noise

Ring in the ju­bi­la­tion of the sea­son with this stand-up word sure to sound an ex­pres­sive note on a shelf or man­tel. The hand­painted wood let­ters are ev­er­green, while the jin­gle bell is cran­berry, al­low­ing it to co­or­di­nate with tra­di­tional dec­o­ra­tions. Set the let­ters on an an­tique tray or mir­ror sur­rounded by a layer of faux flakes and snow­balls to cre­ate a whim­si­cal Christ­mas sen­ti­ment.

Man of the Hour

Good old Santa Claus can see you when you’re sleep­ing or when you’re awake, de­pend­ing on where you hang this vin­tagestyle print, ren­dered on kiln-dried cedar. Dis­play the art­work indoors or out, ac­cented with fairy lights for a warm glow.

Flaky Sen­ti­ments

If you’re dream­ing of a white Christ­mas, this fes­tive fab­ric ban­ner of­fers a chance to pro­claim your wishes across a door or man­tel or atop a win­dow or mir­ror.

Great Skates

This pe­tite ac­cent, in­spired by a fa­vorite win­ter pas­time, will lend a charm­ing touch to a small ta­ble, cab­i­net dis­play or shelf. With de­tails such as rib­bon, a dust­ing of faux snow and nat­u­ral pinecones, it also works well as part of a larger cen­ter­piece.

Be­decked in Burlap

Wreaths made of nat­u­ral greens bring di­men­sion to hol­i­day dis­plays, but this braided burlap cre­ation proves that tex­tiles can add tex­ture as well. An ex­tra bonus—it lasts far longer than ev­er­greens.
