8 Easy Ways to Decorate for the Holidays Last-Minute

Only a few days left before the big 25 and you still haven’t decorated for Christmas? No worries, we’ve got you covered! Here at Curated Interior, we are experts at last-minute decorating and have rounded up eight of the easiest ways to get some holiday magic inside your home as quickly and easily as possible!

Decorating for the holidays doesn’t have to be complicated. Even though the list of traditional Christmas decorations is quite long, we’re going to share the easiest and most practical ways to decorate for the holidays.

1. No tree? No problem.

Tie some ornaments to your dining room chandelier, so the light can reflect off their shiny coatings! We love these red ones and these silver ones.

2. Mini Stockings

Pick up some mini stockings from your local craft store (even Walmart should have these!) and use them as utensil holders. Try these snowflake stockings, santa and snowmen stockings, or these classic red ones as seen below.

3. Red Poinsettias

These classic Christmas plants are the easiest way to decorate for Christmas. Adding a group of them to any room immediately evokes the holiday spirit! We love these tabletop poinsettias with a white base, or this poinsettia wreath!

4. Go Gold

Use as much gold as possible! Put your white candles on golden stands and add some glittery gold ribbons to the base. This sparkly metal is a quintessential Christmas decor element. Try these candles, this ribbon, and these stands.

5. Alternative Christmas Tree

Don’t have the time or space to buy an enormous Christmas tree? This is a great alternative. Grab some evergreen tree branches and place the stem inside a large glass jar for a makeshift Christmas tree. Lastly, don’t forget to top your tree with some colorful ornaments!

6. Letter Blocks

Use large letter blocks to write words along your mantel or any other surface in your home! Some word ideas: PEACE, JOY, LOVE, and of course: CHRISTMAS! Choose your own letters here, or try this Joy sign.

7. Garlands for the Win

Drape a simple evergreen garland over your mantel to give some natural holiday cheer to your living room. Try this green garland with red cranberries or this frosted one.

8. Bottlebrush Trees

Display little bottlebrush trees like these along your mantel (and in the wreath, if you feel daring!) to add some winter glamour to your home.
