Updated: Dec 25, 2018

Displaying Christmas decorations from inside to outside of the house is a sign that Christmas is coming. Besides, Christmas is incomplete without the lively and colourful Christmas decorations.This is so true for many people. Christmas decoration brighten up the atmosphere and this gives everyone a feeling of warmth, joy and excitement. People decorate their houses on Christmas or any other occasion to create a positive energy as well as for fun too. It looks nice to decorate the house as it brings the whole family together to work on the decorations and the family bond strengthens while decorating the house and makes everyone happy.

To begin with, comes first the Christmas tree. Christmas trees come variety of shapes and sizes, so you have options open for you but a smaller one might look more proportionate in a bedroom. You might also want to get a fake tree as opposed to a real one. They are less likely to shed leaves and do not need to be watered. This does not gets over here, as next step is decorating the tree with bells, stockings,candies and lights. Place gifts for friends and family underneath the tree and lastly place a huge star on the top of the tree for Christmas vibes.

Hang pine leaves all around the room. Great places to hang such garlands include above your bed, over your window, around your ceiling, and draped over your bookshelves. You can decorate the garland with fairy lights, tinsel, and ornaments. It gives your room the feel of Christmas. Mini Christmas ornaments might look better on pine garlands. You can find them in art and crafts stores, in the same section that sells mini/craft Christmas trees.

Switch out the old bedspread, curtains, pillow covers, blanket and switch to dark shade options for a better festive look. This would make a change in your surrounding.

Buy scented candles, flowers and wax melts. Now this is one of the most important thing we generally tend to overlook. The ambience has to have a tint of good smell as to rejuvenate you as well as the guests. You don't even have to light candles; many scented candles are potent enough on their own. The colour of the candles have to go accordingly to the theme of your room. Generally go for light colours candles in alternate colours. As for Christmas the three variable colours can be red, green and golden. But anyway you can choose any of your own.

Don't forget the corners of your room. The shelves, dressers, and desks are great for displaying trinkets such as snow globes, nutcrackers, and figurines. If you want to go with a theme like nature, put up some pine tree or reindeer figurines or if you like the classical look, put up a snowman, a Santa Clause, or even a nutcracker. If you don't want to put away any of your existing decorations, consider decorating them instead. For example, if you have a figurine of a cat, try putting a little Santa hat on it.

Windows and doors are a major part of the room to be looked at. So, hang some decorations on your window shelves and walls. You can hang small decorations using thread or clear thread/fishing line instead. Christmas cards can be clipped to yarn, jute cord, or ribbon using wooden clothes pins. Candy canes and jingle bells can be slung over doorknobs or strung from ribbon.

Set up Christmas village scene. Setting up a Nativity or Christmas Village scene on your desk or the floor can be just the thing for you. You'll have lots of fun buying figurines and arranging them. You can find them at most arts and crafts stores. This is an attempt to place the emphasis of Christmas upon the worship of Christ rather than upon secular materialism and gift giving.

Give your room a tinge of snow. Use fake frost which usually comes in a spray can, like spray paint, and washes off your window with soap and water. Its easy and affordable at the same time. Try to spray the frost towards the bottom corners of your window to make it look more realistic. They are great for those who don't get snow for Christmas.

You can create on your own. Not all Christmas decorations have to be store-bought. Home made ones can have their charm too. If you don't have a lot of money to spend, or just like to be crafty, you can make some of your own decorations and display them in your room. You can easily string cranberries and popcorn into thread to make garlands or cut out some letters from glitter paper to spell "Merry Christmas" and tack them to your wall. DIY things this Christmas and enjoy your day.
