It can be difficult to wait until the holidays to show-off and display your favorite Christmas décor, particularly your cherished ornaments. Why wait until December? There are some clever ways to integrate and highlight your beloved baubles now!
Some ways to show-off your favorite ornaments any time of year include:
From your chandelier. A chandelier or a hanging light fixture is the perfect place to suspend a few of your baubles. Use varying lengths of ribbon, string, or fishing line to dangle and delight with your sparkling treasures!
With floral displays. Wire an ornament or two to a floral pic, which are available at most crafting stores and sites. Tuck it in among your foliage, flowers, and plants to create a beautiful display to keep or give to someone special.
Atop a centerpiece. Fill a bowl or platter with some of your glass baubles for a stunning piece that is suitable to use as a dining table centerpiece. Tuck in a few flowers, leaves, or even fresh-cut herbs for added interest and a bit of fragrance.
In a frame. Use an old frame, without the glass, or invest in a simple shadowbox to show-off your ornaments during any season of the year. Affix string or clear line to each ornament and staple the string to the upper edge of the frame on the back. Hang on a wall or suspend from the ceiling for a cool, contemporary display.
On a cake-stand. Cake stands make an excellent platform to display unique ornaments. Use smaller balls and baubles to surround a few larger ones, and use on your kitchen counter, shelf, or patio table for a cool focal point that others will compliment.
From a branch. Mount a simple tree branch above a window or on a wall, and hang a few of your ornaments from the branch. This brings a cool, natural touch to the home while also providing a great spot to showcase your favorites!
In a window. A very simple way to use your ornaments all year is to hang a few from a sunny window. The sun will shine in making the baubles glimmer and gleam, creating a beautiful sight each time you walk in the room!
Before you pack away your favorite holiday decor, consider some of these ways to display your cherished ornaments all year-round. Use these tips to bring a sentimental and decorative touch to your home with your favorite Christmas baubles!
