DIY Christmas Decor with Natalie Ho


By: Natalie Ho

Looking for Christmas decor ideas?

I’m ecstatic to be guest blogging on This Beautiful Day today. This blog post is also quite meaningful to me because it’s the first time I’m sharing photos of our new home.

Living in a condo for the last several years means there was never enough room to put up a Christmas tree. I FINALLY have room to put up a tree this year! Yippee! I hope you enjoy these tidbits from our humble home. Thank you Lisa for allowing me to share with all your readers.

The burlap bunting garland around my tree (above) was a DIY project. I prefer the burlap material over the traditional glitzy tinsel options as I found that it really tied in the colour of the floor and my dining table.


I also love creating personalized wrapping paper from stamps and kraft paper.


 Try dipping regular pine cones in white paint to add a frosted look. An easy Christmas decor idea!


I opted for a non-traditional wreath for the indoors, I picked one that had colours of gold and sparkle to match the gold trim around my mirror.


Nothing speaks festive season that a well-stocked bar cart! My version was a DIY Ikea hack. I like switching up the small details, i.e. red and white striped straws and a vase of berries to accommodate the appropriate holiday. During Halloween, I had orange striped straws and spooky skull shot glasses.


A festive tray can help organize items on your coffee table. For the holiday season, I added a potted plant of light coloured poinsettia.


For the exterior door, I decided to choose a wreath that is sturdier in weight. I was so ecstatic to find this beauty to add to our Christmas decor.

Thank you so much for stopping by and having a look into our holiday home!
