Easy Christmas Decor Ideas

Remodelando la Casa kitchen decorated for Christmas

Hi friends,
It's been a really though week here, at RLC. The mister got sick, then the kids, and now I AM the one under the weather. 
Well, it's not fun. :/

I hope it goes away quickly!

Unlike previous years, my Christmas decor went up early this year, and oh, it feels great!
I've been resting and enjoying how warm and cozy my home feels. ;)

However, if you haven't started or are way behind in the decor department, I have some easy ideas that you can incorporate into your home in no time!

It's the most wonderful time of the year table runner used as window valance

A table runner was the solution to dress up the kitchen window this holiday season. It's such an easy way, I pretty much change it every year. You can check this post right here where I explained how to do it.
For the table runner I taped an extra piece of fabric to make the valance longer, and trimmed the lower edge with jingle bells on bakers twine.

large glass container filled with pine branches and berries for Christmas

Greenery from your backyard is the best decor you can find and hey, it's free!
A container full of fresh evergreen branches looks and smells great anywhere around your home, you can add ornaments or faux picks to make it look even better.

This year I found a little pine tree growing right around the foundation of my home, it was a tough cookie to take out, but is now on my window sill. 

pomegranates inside basket as kitchen island centerpiece for Christmas

Fruits and vegetables are the decor I prefer in my kitchen.

Oranges, apples, pomegranates inside toolbox- Christmas decor

A basket or box full of colorful fruits, some greenery and decorative ribbon make a beautiful centerpiece!

glass canisters decorated for Christmas

Those year round items you keep in your kitchen can be decorated too!


Ribbon, stickers, little ornament picks are just a few of the items you can use to decorate them.


Toys are also a good decor element. My kids are not little any more, but their teddy bears keep on stealing the show during Christmas.



Toy trains, twinkling lights, and those tiny bottle brush trees are oh, so cute!


Sleds, skis, ice skates, wagons...
Antique or not, you can dressed them up for the holidays.


Clear glass jars -
You can use them in SO many ways. I had fun turning them into beautiful luminaries, so easy!


I also used them to hold many of the ingredients for my Hot Cocoa Station Here, but you can also fill them with white sand and miniature trees to create a winter wonderland in each jar!


Wood - You can turn any piece of wood into a sign.


Ball ornaments - Shiny ornaments bring so much holiday cheer! Fill a platter, a clear glass container, or sprinkle some of them on the shelves.



Add a little swag or wreath on the back of chairs.


Use candles on top of bottles to create warmth an elegance at the same time.


There are so many quick and easy ideas! Let me know which one is the one you use the most!

lots of economical ideas for Christmas decor, toys, table toppers, candles, luminaries,

  4. Beautiful as always. I haven't even shared my Christmas decor this year because so little has changed! Except it rained for 4 days after Thanksgiving so instead of our door lights we did those "rain shower" lazer light things. I feel like a Scrooge! And then, the "bug" hit...3 days with fever, aches, and snuffies! CURSES!!! Fortunately my indoor decorating was done, but not my shopping, exchanging and box hunting...lol! College graduation today and come fever or high water I am hitting the ground running! MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family!!!! Hope you all are healthy next week!

  5. The little bear, on the stool, looks like he's opening the present. Ha! It put a smile on my face this morning. I saved the picture of the old sled and skates. I have a sled and have been on the hunt for a pair of little girl's skates with the fur cuff for years now. I will find them! Lol
    Have a Merry Christmas!
