Creating a Winter Wonderland: Indoor Holiday Decor Ideas
The most wonderful time of the year is upon us, which means it’s time to bring out the beloved holiday decorations! In addition to making new traditions this holiday season, why not also incorporate some unique holiday decor into your home? Whether you want to create family-friendly DIY projects, add modern twists on traditional pieces, or introduce simple touches that make all the difference, we’ve got you covered!
Family-Friendly DIY Projects
Use styrofoam cones, colored yarn, ribbon, buttons, and more to make your own mini Christmas trees! Set these up throughout the house on your mantle, on top of fake snow, on your nightstand, or on the dinner table. Take the family to a local craft store to select the specific colors and details you want to incorporate into your mini Christmas trees; then, it’s time to create at home! To make this activity even more cozy, you can play Christmas music in the background or watch a favorite holiday movie.
These snowflakes are bound to make your home feel like a true winter wonderland! Show your kids how to cut out a paper snowflake, as well as how different cuts will result in different shapes. Once your snowflake masterpieces are completed, hang them in windows or from the ceilings with string or fishing line. You could even put them on the Christmas tree! For some extra sparkle, use glue and colored glitter to make your snowflakes truly shine!

Got some toilet paper or paper towel rolls lying around? Don’t throw them out! Instead, transform them into your own cute holiday figurines. You’ll need colored craft paper, googly eyes, ribbons, sparkles, pipe cleaners, and any other decorations you would like. Encourage your kids to create their favorite holiday characters, like Rudolph, the Grinch, Frosty the Snowman, or Buddy the Elf!
Modern Twists on Traditional Decor
For a unique hanging tree you can’t find in stores, create your own using branches and natural elements like pinecones, cinnamon sticks, and citrus slices. Tie the elements together securely with string, and use hot glue if needed. To make your tree shine at night, you can intertwine Christmas lights on the branches to bring out the beautiful colors. Remember to clean off any items that come from outside before incorporating them into your decor. This will surely be an eye-catching and aromatic holiday piece in your home!
Even simple decorations like candles can be elevated with some artistic touches. Make your candles look and smell even more amazing by using cinnamon sticks to encase them, along with some fir branches, mini pinecones, and lace or ribbon. Remember to measure the dimensions of your candle beforehand to make sure everything fits, and use hot glue to keep the decor pieces in place.
Simple Touches with a Big Impact
If you have some extra empty bottles or mason jars, you can fill them with Christmas lights and fake berry branches for simple and festive decor! This will make your home look cozy and warm during the nighttime. Place them by the window to give your house an illuminating glow that embodies the spirit of the holidays.
Turn a simple centerpiece into a work of art! Use candles, cinnamon sticks, pinecones, Christmas lights, leftover craft pieces, and dried citrus slices to give your centerpiece some flair. You can either use a centerpiece base you already have or get creative with it by using a cake stand or elegant cutting board as your base. Intricate details make all of the difference when it comes to elevating your holiday decor.
