Decorating: How to Give Your Old Christmas Decorations an Updated Look

Are you tired of using the same Christmas decorations each year? Do you try to update by getting new decorations only to find that this year’s theme looks frustratingly similar to last year’s?

If you are looking to give this year’s decorations a bit of a wow factor, there are things you can do to transform your existing ornaments. Here are some ideas.

Make Them Into Christmas Magnets

If you have ornaments with an essentially flat shape, you can glue a magnet to the back to give it a new look and purpose. Then you can display them on your fridge instead of your tree or window to change up the location as well as the aesthetic. This is a great way to recycle broken ornaments and you can even make your own holiday magnets from scratch.

Give Your Wreaths a New Look

Wreaths are a popular Christmas ornament, but over time, they can start to look faded and worn out. You can update their look with spray paint and glitter. Use the spray paint to liven up the green or blast it with a frosty white instead. Add glitter for a wintery look and you are good to go.

Note, spray paint and glitter can be used on a variety of ornaments to give them a new look. Get experimental to see how you can take them to the next level.

Put Them in Different Locations

Putting your ornaments in different locations can also create a much needed update. For example, if you have certain ornaments you always put on your tree, try putting them on the window instead. The wreath that hung on your front door can hang on a bedroom door, a bathroom door or any wall of the home.

Bring in Elements from Nature

You may not want to buy a lot of new decorations to liven up your look, but you can always add elements from nature. A tree bough, dried fruit, winter flowers and other plants and foods can be added to your trees and garlands or used on their own to make your décor brighter.

Get Inspired By What You Have Around the Home

You may also find elements that liven up your décor in your home. An old Christmas card or gift wrapping can work wonders. Add ribbon to your trees and ornaments to provide a look of vintage glamour. Look for fabrics with holiday patterns to give your holiday style an added boost.

Your Christmas decorations should be exciting. If you don’t want to buy new ones each year, get unique with what you’ve got. How do you make your displays stand out?
