Decking the halls for the holiday season fills our homes and hearts with joy. There’s no rule that says we have to put all our favorite decorations back in the closet after Santa says, “goodbye.” Take a look at some clever and creative ways you can repurpose and transform your holiday favs into everyday home accents you can enjoy long after the holiday season.
There are two ways to repurpose your holiday wreath for everyday appeal. Simply replace the red and green ribbon and other “just for Christmas” accents and replace them with styles meant for everyday decor. If your wreath is real, remove the pine needles and put them in a fabric bag to create a fragrant sachet.
Layer with Lights
Christmas string lights aren’t just for the holiday season anymore. Layer them from your window treatments for an everyday romantic glow, hang on bedroom walls and headboards for a clever nightlight, or mix and match colorful string lights in a child’s playroom to encourage creativity.
Dazzling Centerpiece Ideas
Everything old is new again so repurpose your vintage Christmas ball ornaments for everyday enjoyment. Simply fill your favorite bowl or hurricane with multiple ornaments and you’ve created a colorful and dazzling dining room centerpiece. Go one step further and add string lights.
Card Holder Redo
Cardholders, frames designed to display Christmas cards are all the rage. After Christmas, repurpose it into a memo board and replace Christmas cards with to-do lists, coupons, inspirational messages, and other everyday reminders.
Candle Color Combos
Red and green and silver and gold candle combos scream holiday decor so after the big day is over, separate your candles by color and display them in everyday holders.
