To bring a unique look to your holiday decor, try something a little different this Christmas and create themed trees by using specific color schemes. You can create a winter wonderland by using a silver tinsel tree with Christmas decorations in blue, white and silver.

If you want something more feminine and fun, consider a change from the traditional Christmas colors of green and red to green and pink. You can easily find a host of pink Christmas decorations for your evergreens. Bring into play pink bottlebrush Christmas wreaths and pink snowflakes as Christmas decorations for your pink theme. Wrap your presents in pretty pink paper and adorn with pink bows and stars. Hang pink stockings for Santa and fill them with sugar plums and pink candy.

In decorating your Christmas wreaths, you might do it in a simple or intricate manner. You can choose to experiment with the shape of your wreaths and create hexagonal, triangular or even star-shaped Christmas wreaths. Wreaths can also serve as fun Christmas decorations that the kids can enjoy. Make a marshmallow wreath by inserting toothpicks on a foam wreath base and then skewering the marshmallows on to the toothpicks. You can also incorporate gumdrops if you’d like some color. A white marshmallow wreath tied with a big red ribbon looks deliciously stunning.

Make your wreaths and swags special by using one-of-a-kind Christmas decorations like lace doilies, frosted pinecones and scented beeswax ornaments. Fill your home with holiday scents by setting out decorative pots of scented herbs, filling bowls with fruit (dried or fresh), nuts, or cookies as edible Christmas decorations. Or get the kids involved in a gingerbread house-making event and use that to grace your holiday table. Compost it when done.

If you want to give a special gift to a special someone, a handmade personalized Christmas wreath would be a great choice. You can choose tiny ornaments to represent their favorite hobbies or interests and go onto add ribbons and other sparkly things to complement their décor. If you are crafting a personalized Christmas wreath for someone who loves vintage and antiques, use ribbons with sheet music imprinted on it, blown glass tree ornaments, Old World Santas or look around in flea markets and tag sales and you’re sure to find some gorgeous vintage Christmas decorations.

Use these creative ideas for a fun-filled Christmas this year.
