1. A CLASSIC INDOOR CHRISTMAS WREATH DECORATION THAT CAN BE STYLED ANYWHERE
Let’s start with the basics, shall we? Every home needs a classic Christmas wreath. The beauty of wreaths is that they can be styled anywhere in the home. A few spaces to consider a large wreath would be your entryway, front or back door, above the mantel, or headboard in your master bedroom. You can even use smaller wreaths on your cabinets to create a cozy Christmas feel in the kitchen. Add DIY charm with some red or holiday-themed ribbon and voila!

Fill in empty spaces with a steeple lantern and some fun light-up Christmas houses.
