Fortunately, we’ve done all of the sourcing for you, with everything from unique Christmas decoration ideas to more traditional designs with a modern spin to it. Make your season a little merrier with these unique Christmas decorations!
- Personalized Christmas Wreaths
A Christmas wreath is a seasonal declaration. Hanging one on your door to greet visitors and welcome them into your home is a great way to show off your Christmas spirit, and a homemade DIY one allows you to show off your craftsmanship. Christmas wreaths can be made in a variety of styles, ranging from the traditional vibrant evergreen with a big red bow to a holly jolly wreath adorned with colorful Christmas baubles. Wreaths with lights can also be strung to illuminate the night and complement your outdoor display.
These adorable personalised wreaths would look great hung on a door or wall to add a cozy, festive vibe and to warmly welcome guests during the Christmas season. It also makes an excellent gift for your loved ones.
- Scandi Stars
These magical stars are a common sight during the Christmas season in Scandinavian countries, and they have recently gained worldwide popularity. During the long and dark winters, the stars were traditionally hung in the window and filled with string lights to welcome visitors.
You can also just remove the string lights and just hang the stars on your ceilings to give your home a bit of a starry night vibe. We think the simple look scattered around the ceiling looks rustic and unique, unlike most of the bright and flashy decorations you see around the Christmas season.
- Tinsel Christmas Tree
If you’ve never decorated with tinsel before, there aren’t many rules to follow; simply toss a handful on the tree (or anywhere else) and keep adding until it’s sparkly enough for your taste! Another way you can incorporate tinsel trees is in small spaces around your home. If you don’t have room in your tiny apartment for a flocked tree, you can try this instead. You can save space, time, and money by using a little bit in small spaces around your home.
One of the reasons we adore tinsel is that it simply elevates any existing decor. Tinsel is the perfect finishing touch for your Christmas tree after you’ve strung the lights and added ornaments.
- Burlap Santa Sacks
We know these are typically intended to keep gifts in, but how adorable would it be as a decoration? Simply stuff it with tissue paper or newspaper and place it next to the tree until the real presents arrive. You can leave it around different areas of the house and make sure it’s fully stuffed. It’s a unique decoration idea for Christmas that is surely something different.

- Festive Utensil Covers
These adorable cutlery covers are a fun way to keep silverware organized on the Christmas table. Did you think your forks, knives, and spoons were fine as they were? Nope! Festive utensil covers make everything more festive, including your dinner table.
- Ornament Wreaths
The best thing about making your own ornament wreath is that you can scale it down to any size you want and customize it to meet your specific Christmas decoration theme. Ornament wreaths are versatile items that can be hung indoors or outdoors. Christmas ornaments are a springboard for your own creativity. Even colored jingle bells can be used in place of ornaments as a festive approach to let visitors know you’re home.
- Rustic Winter
A wintery Christmas in the whites is among the most romantic decor. The untainted natural beauty of the season is perfectly complemented by a rustic motif filled with wood accents and neutral colors. The setting for decorations like green fir garland flowing along a bare pine table, amber glassware, tall cream candles on golden sticks, and rustic accents like wood slab placemats and a white antler chandelier is the crisp light of a woodland wedding and the glow of fresh snow.
- Golden Metallic Mistletoe
This metallic mistletoe tree ornament is delicately engraved with features that bring it to life. It’s a more subtle but no less sophisticated take on the traditional mistletoe. You can even get it in the color that matches the overall Christmas theme of your home.
