Discover display ideas for musthave decorative accessories.
Illuminated decorations, like these light-filled translucent Santa boots, brightly greet guests at your home’s entry. Stuff them with fresh greens and oversize knit candy canes to set a playful mood, or add other fun trimmings, such as small cellophanewrapped packages or outdoor ornaments.
Homemade treats will look even more appealing when creatively packaged in mason jars with decorative toppers, whether they are to be given as gifts or loaded with goodies for party guests. Or, enliven the containers with shiny jingle bells or small ornaments that will catch the sunlight when placed on a windowsill.
Large decorative lanterns are a flexible foundation for all manner of decor, from hosting a grouping of candles to showcasing holiday heirlooms. A simple gathering of greenery inside this metal lantern highlights the lacy snowflake motifs that dress up its glass panels.
Get more mileage out of your money by choosing seasonal decor that can remain on display past the holidays, such as a delightfully dimensional shutter decked with greenery and a rustic skate. An homage to a favorite winter pastime, the piece can easily glide from December through January.
Assemble a cheerful centerpiece atop a fluted metal tray, starting with a large central piece, such as this farmhouse crock brimming with greenery and a battery-powered candle. Round out the arrangement with colorful folk-art figural incense smokers to provide a fragrant touch.
Selecting a special tree and carting it home to decorate is a holiday tradition that many families share, and this handpainted barnwood-framed sign captures the essence of that activity. Hang it on the wall, or prop it on a small easel to use as the backdrop of a festive vignette.
These decoratively painted blocks make a bold declaration of commitment to Christmas magic and are perfect for lining a shelf or mantel as part of a setup that includes ribbons, greenery and tiny lights.
