You may have enough ornaments to decorate your tree, but what about the rest of your home? Although most people seem to only think using ornaments to decorate their Christmas tree, Christmas ornaments are actually a very versatile holiday decoration. Below are some examples of how you can use Christmas ornaments to decorate your home.
Decorate Your Wreath:
Much like a Christmas tree, you can hang some of your favorite ornaments up to decorate a Christmas wreath. Choose from our selection of ball ornaments to match your decorating color theme or add a little personal touch with your own ornaments.
Hang Them on a Chandelier:
You can use your ornaments to add some holiday flair to your hanging lighting! You can dangle your ornaments from ribbons or use hooks to keep them close and instantly change your chandelier into a holiday decoration.
Use Them as Accessories:
Smaller ball ornaments can make for a great accessory! When using ribbon or string to tie up your presents, consider adding a small red ball ornament to the string as well. If you’re hosting a dinner party, you can use small ornaments to create a table setting. Simply take some string and tie a small ornament to a folded or rolled up napkin.
Place Them in Creative Spots:
There are sure to be plenty of empty spaces in your home that could use a little decorating. Adding a few ornaments to these spots can immediately change the look of a room. For example, you can hang ornaments around the edges of potted plants or use a ribbon to hang them from a window latch.
Keep in mind that some of your lower hanging ornaments may be in reach of pets or children. For safety reasons, it may be best to purchase some of our shatterproof ornaments to decorate with.
Fill a Lantern:
In addition to filling up bowls and jars, another great place for ornaments is in a candle lantern. Rather than lighting a candle, some people fill these lanterns with ball ornaments that match the holiday theme. These ornaments can be switched with different colors throughout the year to match different holidays.
