Top Tips on Making Your Home Look Festive

‘Tis the season… to decorate your home and make it look festive! Its December now and officially acceptable to put the tree up and drag all those Christmas decorations, fairy lights and baubles out the attic. But… if you’re getting a bit bored of your home looking the same every December, check out these top tips and give your home a new festive look for Christmas 2012.

Start from Scratch

The run up to Christmas is the ideal time to clear out all that clutter you no longer need or want. If you’ve got a full house at Christmas you don’t want your home to look untidy and it’s also a perfect opportunity to make room for all those gifts Father Christmas is going to bring you! So clear out all those unwanted items and don’t forget the attic. If you’re dreading climbing into the attic to spend hours rootling around looking for the Christmas decorations then you’ve probably got too much stuff! If you don’t need it, don’t keep it.

Set the Mood

Fairy lights and candles are an excellent way of getting that festive feel into your home. Wrap fairy lights around your mantel piece, your doors, your banister – wherever you want. And if you can get your hands on some scented Christmas candles this will give your home a truly Christmassy feel.


Tinsel’s out this year! And nature is in! So if you’re into a bit of DIY go and have a forage around your garden and see what you can find. Holly leaves and pine cones are perfect, spray paint them gold, silver or red, add a splash of glitter and place them around your home.


According to the fashion experts there is two key themes this year, there’s the traditional, classic look which uses lots of golds and reds and then there’s the children’s theme which has a really handmade feel to it. Think teddy bears, candy sticks and stockings hanging over the fireplace.
