Most of us have a lot of left over ball ornaments after decorating the Christmas tree so I thought I would share other ways I’m Decorating with Ornaments. If you don’t have extra money to spend on Christmas decorations using ornaments is an inexpensive way to bring more Christmas into your home. These pretty, shiny, colorful, glittery, reflective decorations add sparkle to your home without breaking the bank.
Here are a few ways I decorated with ornaments several years ago, since moving I’m sure to add new ways of using ornaments to decorate this year. Vintage ornaments seldom get hung on our family Christmas tree. We’ve had it knocked over in the past and the last thing I want is shattered vintage ornaments.
In the past I’ve hung them from old windows where they’re out of reach of little hands. They look pretty hanging from twine in front of the windows.
A couple house ago I hung them from the dining room chandelier. They looked so pretty hung above the dining table especially with the chandelier lights on.
When I don’t have them displayed hanging from the chandelier or windows I simply place them in a pretty glass box or bowl.
I like to display my vintage ornaments in new ways every year. We recently bought a Christmas tree just for our bedroom and the vintage ornaments are hung there now.
I had some small ball vintage ornaments and old tinsel so I made a garland with them. It looks great displayed on the fireplace mantel or on an old window.
One year I had them hanging around a mirror. I’m not sure where they will be displayed this year.
I like to change my Christmas colors every year. One year we decorated with bright colors and everything was centered around Merry & Bright. Because of all the bright colors I kept everything else pretty simple. It was such a fun color scheme. I think I need to bring it back soon. It’s a fun one for when the grandkids visit.
You’ve all seen those beautiful ornament wreaths. I haven’t made one yet but I did a quick and modified version of the wreath by just attaching a few ball ornaments here and there on a pine wreath. Next year might be the time when I finally make the official ornament wreath. Or not, because I really like this version too.
This display was from the same year that we decorated with the Merry & Bright theme. The kids really loved these glitter ornaments hanging from the ceiling in front of the kitchen window.
If you have several places you want to add Christmas decorations, simply use bowls and fill with decorative ornaments in your color scheme. You can also add pine trimmings and berries to the bowl for more color.
Or hang the ornaments from unexpected places. This was our Christmas countdown from the Merry & Bright year again. As you can see there are only 2 days left until Christmas. Doesn’t the bowl of colorful ornaments look so pretty too?
Still want to add color or Christmas decor to a space? This pop of red is all this space needs. Just scatter a few ornaments and your space is beautifully decorated. Adding ornaments around the house is a fast, inexpensive, and easy way to decorate. And we all like simple, right?
Here’s one more idea! I also like to use ornaments for place cards at the dinner table or gift cards on packages. How do you like to use ornaments or decorate with them?
