Indoor Holiday Decorating with The Home Depot on Facebook
Every year, I always fill my home with festive holiday decorations. My housekeeper, Laura Acuna, and I enjoy mixing and matching traditional pieces with more whimsical objects and displaying them in every room.
This week, I hosted a special Facebook LIVE, with Kevin Sharkey, to show our newest collection of indoor holiday decor available exclusively at The Home Depot and at the Home Decorators Collection, which is a catalog arm of The Home Depot. We shared several easy crafts projects, including how to make a garland, how to embellish birch logs for a wintry woodland theme, and how to create a beautiful Christmas tree skirt - all holiday decorations you can make right at home. I also answered lots of questions from friends watching online.
We have such colorful holiday decorations this year at The Home Depot. This is our Alpine Holiday Shatter-Resistant collection. The tree is our Alexandra Pine, which is 7.5 feet tall and comes pre-lit with 550-warm LED lights. goo.gl/Lk3dgU
Our Alpine Holiday Shatter-Resistant ornaments can be mixed with vintage or antique ornaments to make your tree even more special. In fact, many of thee ornaments were inspired by old antique ornaments I have collected over the years.
This collection includes lots of red, gold, silver and green ornaments.
This is our Winslow Artificial Garland with 100 clear lights. We embellished it with more ornaments. And, did you catch my tip on how to keep it from falling off the mantel? If not, watch this Facebook LIVE.
This is our Winter Tidings collection also from The Home Depot – go there now before they sell out of the collection you want. This is also the 7.5 Pre-Lit LED Sparkling Pine Tree. goo.gl/Lk3dgU
Our Winter Tidings collection comes in bright reds and classic silver colors.
It also includes white ornaments embellished with various designs and more titanium colors.
This is among my favorite wreaths – the Chmpagne Berry Wreath. And, what I love most about it is that it can be displayed even after Christmas.
Make a tree skirt or holiday luminaries you can use year after year. Watch our Facebook LIVE for the easy process. these are actually our Holiday Lanterns we did for a project this year. I did a how-to video on these lanterns – see it on my web site. http://www.marthastewart.com/1507559/how-decorate-lights
The supplies needed include galvanized wire, metal radiator cover sheets from The Home Depot, double stick tape, cutters, a utility knife, a self healing cutting board, and a ruler. goo.gl/Lk3dgU
Just cut the radiator cover sheets, and using some wire, connect the pieces together to fit the underneath of your Christmas tree.
I love doing these projects – tree skirts can be so pretty, especially when lit up with a string of our LED lights.
And do you have a Christmas tree topper? This snowflake topper is made using several of our Winter Tidings ornaments. The easy how-to is on our Facebook LIVE.
Here in my Home Decorators Collection Craft Space Apothecary Hutch, we hung these whimsical mouse ornaments – so cute. And, I love using the 3M Command hooks to display them – the hooks can be removed after the holiday. goo.gl/Td1v52
We also hung some of our Vintage-Style ornaments, also from Home Decorators. goo.gl/IhFO7a
Here, Kevin and I show how to make a garland out of pieces of ribbon. It’s a chain garland, similar to the ones we all made as children out of construction paper. Just use strips of ribbon to make the loops of the chain.
It looks so colorful and festive on the tree. These ribbons are from my collection at The Home Depot. They are part of our Alpine Holiday Collection. See my how-to video on how to decorate with ribbon, including how to create this beautiful garland. http://www.marthastewart.com/1507541/how-decorate-garland
This Christmas tree is our Norwegian Spruce Pre-Lit tree with 550 lights. It was inspired by a tree we decorated at our Westport television studio. It has a woodland theme with pinecones and acorns. We call it our Snowy Evergreen Collection. goo.gl/IhFO7a
All of these decorations are part of the Snowy Evergreen Collection. They can be mixed and matched on the mantel or on a side table – create your own winter wonderland.
To make a natural garland, use disks cut from wooden branches. Or, make votives using white river birch logs. You can also get these from craft stores – just please don’t cut down any trees.
These are our new Sisal Hedgehog Ornaments, which come in a set of two.
These are our Etched Deer Figurines from Home Depurators Collection. The elegant mocha finish and striking details give the deer sophisticated charm.
We call this our Glittered Deer ornament – a colorful embellishment featuring a deer with faux berries and a pinecone on a leafy branch.
Our Sisal Hedgehog ornaments are symbols of spring and rejuvenation. These come in sets of two with one standing and one sitting up, both with pinecone-like quills and furry fronts.
Our classic Shimmering Bottle Brush Trees come in silver, green and copper with round resin bases.
Our Lighted Winter House ornaments can decorate the mantel or the tree, or any space needing a wintry landscape. These ornaments are available in a set of five different designs. goo.gl/IhFO7a
Kevin and I showed how to make the birch bark votives, and these cute “snow” covered stumps. It’s such an easy project – see it on our Facebook LIVE. The Hedgehog Family Figurines can sit right on top of the wintery stumps all season long.
We finished our tree with our Gilded Leaf Burlap Garland – such a lovely holiday tree for any room. How many Christmas trees do you display in your home?
