With less than a week left for Christmas 2022, we know that you're struggling to get everything done on your to-do list.

One task that often gets less attention is decorating your home in a customized way for Christmas. If you are planning to call family and friends home or for a house party and personalized festive home decor hasn't crossed your mind yet, fret not. Our carefully-curated tips and tricks for last-minute decorating will help you get your house looking Christmassy in no time at all.
7 Tips To Decorate Your Home For Christmas 2022
1. Use Wrapping Paper
The easiest way to make your house look ready for the holiday season is to use wrapped-up gifts and presents as a holiday display. If you haven't purchased the Christmas gifts yet, you can try wrapping some old books, photo frames with festive wrapping paper and try beautifying your bookshelves or corners.
2. Decorate The Home Plants
Besides the Christmas tree, you can use your indoor plants as Christmas decor. Flowering plant pots can be strategically added throughout the house to add a pop of colour. Visit your local plant nursery to buy Poinsettia plants to give that beautiful festive red feel and for white, you can opt for white Lilies. You can even order Christmas-themed plants like hollies or evergreen Christmas trees online. These come in coffee table top sizes too. Light them up with festive fairy lights and your natural Christmas decor is good to go.
3. Save Money By Opting For Miniature Objects
Instead of elaborate decoration, or large wreaths, try out the miniature versions, especially for small corners, bookshelves or centre tables. The subtle touch can make a huge impact in the room without burning a hole in your pocket.
4. Save Time By Using The Leftover Ornaments
If you have a time crunch for Christmas shopping, dig into your last year's supply of leftover ornaments. You can even alter the way you use them this year. Instead of putting up the ornaments on the Christmas tree, you can display them in a crystal bowl on a centre table or hang some in the doorway.
5. Use Aromatic Candles
Aromatic candles are always a hit, so try decorating your home with this multi-sensory festive approach. Christmas-themed tricolour (red, white and green) candles come in different shapes and sizes which you can place at various nooks and corners to spread that festive cheer with a subtle glow and the sweet smell of Christmas.
6. Use Vibrant Cushion Covers
The easiest home decor hack is changing your plain pillow covers and cushions to something festive, vibrant and holiday-like. You can even use Christmas-themed blankets and bedsheets for your bed to keep you in high holiday spirits.
7. Make A Christmas Tree With Books
If you are an avid reader and have a collection of books, novels and magazines, you can use them to make a tree by stacking them in a manner that would resemble a colourful Christmas tree. You can even wrap a few of the books with holiday-themed wrapping paper to make them look like presents.
