Four Festive Projects that Turn Your House into an Amazing Holiday Home

Seasonal & Holiday | HGDI ADMIN

We’ve selected five festive projects that have enough affect to transform a ho-hum house into a place where you can create a wonderland of holiday memories.

This season, get started early, and you can create an amazing holiday home to delight family and guests alike.

 

Outdoor Lighting

There is nothing more beckoning and welcoming than a tasteful display of holiday lights to greet you and your guests. It is the first thing you see when coming home. 

There are so many options, from standard twinkle lights heart warming lighting displays that make it appear as though your home has been placed in the middle of a winter wonderland, complete with falling snow and candy canes. 

Get started now with purchasing and placing your outdoor Christmas lights, or opt to hire a professional service who will design a display and implement it for you. 

 

An Ornament Station

Set up an ornament station in your home, where family and friends can gather to create one of a kind, personalized Christmas ornaments and keepsakes. It will instantly create a Santa’s workshop feel, while encouraging creativity and conversation. Stock the station with plenty of supplies and some boxes and wrap. Beside the standard scissors, paint, tape, glue and glitter, your creative materials might include:

  • Empty glass balls
  • Plain ornaments
  • Craft and decorative paper
  • Yarn, colored thread or elastic and safety needles
  • Small figures and trees
  • Night light bulbs
  • Mason jars
  • Cotton balls
  • Wooden shapes and popsicle sticks
  • Rubber stamps and ink
  • Jingle bells
  • Pompons and pipe cleaners
  • Snow globe kits
  • “Shrinky Dink Paper”
  • Ribbon
  • Paper Punches
  • Small ceramic tiles

Get creative!

 

Cohesive Decorating

Hire a professional holiday designer or just follow some simple guidelines to make it appear as though you did. The best indoor displays follow a loose theme that ties everything together. Rooms may have different themes and focal points, but they should all flow seamlessly from one to another, otherwise things will look off. 

There are so many wonderful ideas to explore and make your own. Having a plan in place before the decorations come out can make a big difference in creating an amazing holiday home. 

 

Setting the Table

A beautiful table, set with gleaming tableware and the best things to eat is a holiday dream that many of us share. Make it a reality. Evaluate your current dining room table to see if it needs an upgrade. Can it hold all the guests and good things that are part of the holidays? Lush seat covers can pull together mismatched chairs for extra seating, if needed, but make sure there is enough room on the tabletop for uncrowded dishes and some festive decor. Other considerations include:

  • Table clothes or runners
  • Centerpieces
  • Dish ware and silverware
  • Serving pieces
  • Sideboard or serving cart
