Christmas cheer is all around and if you’re like most of us you may have a deluge of Christmas ornaments that you have acquired over the years. Since there is only so much space on a Christmas tree, you may find yourself with a good amount leftover. If so, we have a few different ways you can make use of all of the extras to decorate your home.
One of the easiest uses for leftover ornaments is to toss them in a vase or bowl and set them in the center of your dining table, side table or anywhere that could use a festive centerpiece. Try mixing colors and shapes for a unique look.
Wreaths & Garlands
Fasten surplus ornaments to any garland or wreath with floral wire to create your one-of-a-kind front door statement piece. If you don’t already own a wreath or garland for sprucing, you can find them of different sizes and colors along with floral wire at any craft store.
Hung from up top
Another easy way to create a nice focal piece is to string ornaments and hang them from light fixtures or entry ways. You can tie them to directly onto light fixtures or use clear adhesive tape to fasten them to the ceiling, entry way or window frame. Be sure that the tape you’re using securely sticks to the surface as most ornaments are pretty fragile and will most likely shatter if they fall.
If you’re willing to part with extra ornaments or want to downsize your collection a great and unique approach to do so is to incorporate them in your gift wrapping. Instead of using the traditional Christmas bow, try a bauble or ornament. The inclusion can easily double as a two-in-one gift making yours extra special.
Now you can fish all the ornaments you might have tucked away and adorn your entire home because if there’s any time to go overboard with festivity it’s now.
