How to Repurpose Your Thanksgiving Décor for Christmas

If you haven’t quite made the transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas just yet, you’re in luck!  Even with very little time left, there are still a few easy ways to transition yourself from Thanksgiving to Christmas in no time, which can be especially handy if you plan to have guests over.

Here’s what you should do:

Transitioning from Thanksgiving to Christmas

Add a Little Holly Jolly

You’d be surprised at how adding a little holly can truly spread the Christmas cheer.  Take away the colors of fall from your existing décor, leaving anything green remaining.  You now only need to add holly and evergreen garlands, and you’re set.

Candles, Candles, Everywhere

Nothing quite says Christmas like a few well-placed candles.  Choose shimmering metallics, glowing whites, rich reds, and lush greens.  This will instantly add a nice pop of holiday warmth to your space.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

You can add stars to your décor in a number of ways.  The easiest way is to buy string lights and place them sparingly throughout your home – they can be especially lovely when placed along the top of a curtain, in a slightly curving pattern.  You can also purchase star-shaped ornaments, and add them here and there throughout your existing décor.

Pinecones are Perfect

If you already have pinecones leftover from Thanksgiving, you’re in luck!  You can use spray-on snow to give them an instant winter makeover that will last even beyond Christmas.  Another thing you can do is brush on a clear glue, and sprinkle glitter on top to add a quick holiday sparkle.

Cinnamon Swirls

I don’t know about you, but there’s just something magical about the smell of cinnamon.  Look for candles that have this amazing scent, or you can purchase brooms and pinecones that will fill your home with the smell of Christmas in no time! You can also add cinnamon sticks here and there throughout your décor for an additional punch of this wonderful smell.

Cranberry Surprise

Last, but not least – cranberries are yet another item that transition wonderfully from Thanksgiving to Christmas. You can use cranberries to decorate candles, garlands, and centerpieces.
