Easy Christmas Decor Ideas You Can Do On A Budget Simple Christmas Home Decorating Ideas

KIM CORNELISON Christmas is a magical time in big cities, but let’s face it: There’s something a little dreamier about a Christmas spent in the country, more specifically in a picturesque farmhouse. Maybe it’s the never-ending lineup of Hallmark movies in constant rotation this time of year that has made the warm and cozy farmhouse a holiday necessity. You know the ones, movies set in quaint country snow-covered towns where an unlikely romance occurs between two seemingly hesitant main characters? Oftentimes, there’s another starring role—a charming family farmhouse—that functions as the centerpiece for a whole bunch of Christmas spirit and traditions (we’re talking Christmas trees, wrapped gifts, and oh the cookie baking!). Everyone knows an old farmhouse, with all its inherent charm and quirks, is the ideal setting to celebrate a holiday season in real life, too. Nostalgic touches abound thanks to the timelessness of farmhouse architecture, and from there, you can layer in vintage ornaments that remind us of childhood to the homemade stockings on the mantel. A wrap-around porch begs for simple swags of greenery to elevate an already perfect specimen to greater beauty, as does a sturdy banister. But even if you don’t have an old rambling farmhouse of your own, you can borrow some of these farmhouse-inspired decorating ideas for Christmas and infuse your rooms with the same collected-over-time vibe. In other words, you can live out that Hallmark holiday movie no matter where you live! View Gallery.
