Read on for some awesome Xmas home decor ideas to make your holiday season as bright and warm as can be, whether you're planning for a Christmas party, a winter wedding or a family get-together. It's cold outside, so let's get some DIY Christmas spirit going!

Artificial snow for DIY winter wonderland Christmas decor

Use cotton batting or similar fake snow-like products for table decorations, mantels and other areas in the home, whether living room or dining room. Spray the fake snow with spray glitter for a glimmering effect.


An option for centerpieces or vases is to use floral gel crystals. Look for them in the floral section of a craft store or purchase them online from Amazon or another retailer.

Water mixed with the crystals turns it into a snow-like texture. Place it in a shallow bowl and arrange candles or glass Christmas ornaments in it for a festive centerpiece. You can purchase spray snow that works well on windows. Spray it near the corners and along the edges of windows to greet guests with a snowy winter wonderland welcome.


Sparkly, glitzy, glittery snowflakes

Suspend lots of snow (these can be paper snowflakes) covered in glitter from the ceiling to set a magical tone in the room. Decorate a white Christmas tree with the glittery snowflake winter wonderland Christmas decorations. Hang them in the windows or along a mantel. You can also hot glue or wire the snowflakes onto a wreath for a display that works indoors and outdoors.


Twinkle lights and tulle

String white twinkling Christmas lights throughout the home. Ideal places for the string lights include windows, mantels, banisters and along the edges of tables. Bunch a string of twinkling lights inside a frosted glass vase for a bright centerpiece. Drape twinkle lights along with tulle fabric on the ceiling, walls or front door for a romantic and magical feeling.


Balloons for frosty Christmas bouquets

Choose pearl-finish balloons for a frosty look. Another option is to use balloons printed with snowflakes on them. Create balloon bouquets as centerpieces. You can also use the bouquets to flank the main entrance as a festive greeting for guests. Another option is to let the balloons float to the ceiling as a decoration.


Winter wonderland color scheme

Use white decorations inside your home to create the finest DIY winter wonderland decor. Silver is another trending accent color for the winter wonderland theme. Add silver glitter to decorations for a shimmering touch. Light blue is another color often used in winter wonderland themes. Add it in the form of Christmas ball ornaments and other accents. Ball ornaments work well on a white Christmas tree or suspended from the ceiling.


Winter wonderland iced vase

Create a fun winter wonderland light feature by filling the bottom of a clear glass vase about 1/4 full with clear white or blue marbles. Add a small string of clear white or blue lights on top. Finish the decoration by hooking a few clear plastic icicles around the rim of the vase.
