Each year, we make it a point to decorate the home with stylish decor pieces. However, if you've been using the same items from five or 10 years ago, you might be bored with the look of your space! Keep things festive by working with different ideas. Make sure you avoid these boo-boos:

Shying away from DIY touches

DIY projects and decor pieces can immediately give your home a warm and personal touch. Keep in mind that you don't need to craft perfect pieces that you can use and display! What matters most if you were able to do something unique and fun for your space.

Sticking to one color palette

Who wouldn't love the classic pairing of red, green, and white? However, if you're willing to experiment and try something new, you can work with other colors, too! Just imagine how exciting it would be to have a blue or white Christmas at home!

Doing everything on your own

Don't hesitate to ask help from friends and loved ones when it comes to finalizing the look and style of your space. Make it a group effort by scheduling one afternoon for brainstorming and actual decorating. You can even involve your kids when it comes to working on DIY projects.

Neglecting pieces that you already have

Save on cash by repurposing your decor pieces from the previous years. These can still work for your space—it takes a bit of creativity and an afternoon to spruce up old Christmas balls and craft ornaments from ribbons and wreaths.
