Deck the halls (and your home) in Christmas trimmings this year.

Yes, it’s that time of year again. Christmas is around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about everything from Christmas lights, how to cook the perfect turkey, buying your loved ones meaningful gifts and feeling festive.

Christmas time is about family, friends, yummy food and giving gifts. It’s also about decorating your home!

While there are many different ways to decorate your home this Christmas, we give you some stress-free, inexpensive ways to enjoy your home this Christmas.

Christmas tree


Your Christmas tree is often the centrepiece of your home during the month of December. Therefore it’s important to decorate it with meaningful decorations.

If you can, position your tree in your front window. This will allow people from the outside to see your tree lit up at night time as they walk or drive past.

When decorating your tree be sure to hang your lights first, that way you do not have to do it in and around hanging decorations.

If you’re not going to have a real tree this year, consider some of these reasonably priced trees here.

Wrapping the presents under your tree in a creative way is also an easy way to add a Christmas touch to your home.

Homemade decorations


Adorning your tree with homemade decorations is a sentimental and often inexpensive way of decorating your tree. You can use things like felt, sequins, cardboard and even pasta pieces to create special DIY ornaments. Check out some creative ideas here.

Your homemade decorations don’t just have to hang on your tree. You can use them as small gifts to friends and family, wrapping adornments for other presents or store them as keepsakes for years to come.

Be sure to get the kids involved too!

Outdoor ideas


The outside of your home can easily reflect your Christmas cheer just as easily as the inside of your home can during the month of December. Consider using an outdoor wreath for your front door, outdoor Christmas lights or even a small display in your garden or on your front porch.



There are many different ways you can include some Christmas décor throughout your home.

This could include a garland hanging from your staircase or mantelpiece, small ornaments on your dining table, Christmas holly in your vases or themed pillows on your lounge suite or bed.
