An Artistic Holiday Approach

Interested in a more modern, artistic and architectural approach to holiday decor? Create an unexpected door hanging with an architectural ceiling medallion, spray paint and ribbon. Pick up a ceiling medallion from the hardware store, update it with glossy spray paint and adorn with seasonal embellishments. Add twine, yarn, string or ribbon to the top and attach it to your door.

Play With Your Food

Nothing says natural and organic like a wreath made from nuts. Put festive red pistachios to work this season as decoration by adding them, one at a time, to a foam wreath form using a hot glue gun. Add an extra organic layer of interest with twine or burlap embellishments.

Holiday Gift-Box Sculpture

Well-presented gifts are sure to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. Represent the excitement of the holidays right outside your front door with a wooden gift-box sculpture. Pick up several wooden boxes from the craft store, then paint them with latex paint in your desired holiday color scheme. Cluster them together with screws or small clamps, then dress them up with ribbon. Add a picture hanger to the back, then place it on an outside wall or door.

Create a Nature-Inspired Bundle

Raid your yard for pinecones and form them into a decorative hanging cluster. Gather between six and 18 pinecones and tie a ribbon at their tops. Once all ribbon is added, cluster the pinecones together neatly, then tie them all together at the top. Add a chunky ribbon or bow to conceal the tied knot, then hang on a door, in a window or even directly on the wall.
