9+ Easy Christmas Decorating Ideas You Should Try This Year

Since we just moved to our vintage farmhouse less than a year ago, I’m working on how to decorate here for the holidays.

I’m not certain what’s going where or how I’m decorating yet, so I need all of the Christmas inspiration I can get!

My former home leaned more rustic farmhouse but here? I’m moving more toward a vintage farmhouse vibe with a cottagecore style.

To catch you up on how much work we’ve done since moving in last year, we’ve been updating rooms because most of them were pretty dark and full of faux finishes.

If you love a good before and after, you can see all of the transformations here:

Aside from renovating rooms, we’ve been really busy shopping and thrifting to furnish the house too on a budget.

Finding Christmas Looks for Less

And now, I’m looking for some Christmas decorating deals for the season too.

I’ve been doing a lot of comparison shopping online too. Big retailers like Pottery Barn put out their seasonal looks and while I don’t always want to pay Pottery Barn prices, I take the look and shop around for a better deal.

And you know what? The savings are crazy big!

You can see how much money I saved on these Pottery Barn Christmas looks for less here.

But aside from shopping around, I also want to make some unique Christmas DIY ideas too.

And now’s the time to make them before the holidays get into full swing and we get too busy to even think about making things.

So don’t wait if you want to make some stuff!

I already started making these paperbag snowflakes. They are super easy to do and look so pretty with any style of Christmas decor, don’t they?

I want to add them to our front entry hall with my new, never before seen King of Christmas tree.

But before I hang them up and start decorating the tree, here are 9 more clever and cozy farmhouse Christmas decorating ideas you should try this year.
