Christmas Wall Decor

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! So sings Andy Williams and I must say I heartily agree. I love Christmas, and so does my family. 

Lots of gift exchanges, gatherings with family and friends, and so much good food to go around! 

But when it comes around, it also means I need to step up my Christmas Wall Decor game. 

I love a good old traditional Christmas layout, but also add in my own creativity and ideas to personalise the decorations.

So why do we celebrate Christmas?

Photo by Search staircase pictures

Most of us experienced Christmas celebrations right from the moment we were born. That’s really no surprise since Christmas is one of the most widely celebrated holidays in the world. A lot of people will know the origin, but some might not know or have forgotten, particularly if they are nonreligious. So here’s a short summary of why this day is being celebrated. 

Christmas has a significant place in the hearts of Christians, as this day is used to mark the birth of Jesus. The cool thing is that Christians and non Christians alike celebrate this day, and I guess it is because of the presents! 

What are some traditions of Christmas? 

Gift exchange is one of those things that people love about Christmas. People tend to open up and become more generous during this time of the year, opening up their wallets to get gifts for their loved ones. 

Throughout the world, there are many different traditions being practiced which are really interesting. 

It is really a universal holiday! Don’t believe me? Here’s a few I bet you have never heard before: 

  • Giant Lantern Festival in Philippines
  • The Creature, Kramus, taking to the streets to terrorise naughty kids. While this might seem like a Halloween tradition, it actually happens during Xmas in Austria! 
  • Having Kentucky Fried Chicken on Christmas Day in Japan 
  • Hiding of brooms on Christmas Eve in Norway
  • Christmas Day barbecue in New Zealand

Fascinated? I bet! 

What are the most common Christmas decorations being used?

There are certainly a few popular ones that come to mind, such as bells, stockings and candy canes. I love those, and I always make sure to have a number of them spread around the house come Christmas time. Besides them, I would be sure to include these too: 

  • Christmas Tree and ornaments
  • Santa Claus figurines 
  • Rudolph figurines
  • Elves figurines
  • Door garland
  • Christmas cards
  • Pinecones
  • Stars
  • Presents 
  • Candles 
  • Anything red, green, and white! 

Ok, how do I decorate a Christmas wall?

Glad you asked! I do have some ideas for you to consider, and later on, check out some real-life examples to get more inspiration! 

  • Put up traditional signage in your home entryway 
  • Add berries (fake ones of course!) to garlands to brighten things up
  • Spread pinecones and red and green blankets around the house 
  • Convert a wooden ladder into a display piece by placing ornaments on each step
  • Add a bunch of Christmas wall art around the house, either displaying quotes or cute pictures
  • Bring out the red and white dishware! 
  • Hang gifts on the walls instead of just below the Christmas tree
  • Place your favorite wall photo frames next to a beautiful accent wall mirror

How I store my Christmas wall decor and ornaments

Instead of chucking my “toys” aside in a standard box, I decided to get myself a Christmas theme storage box instead! 

It keeps things organized into one location and it is so easy to recognize! 

Get yourself one too!
