Cheerful Ideas For Holiday Decor That Can Be Used All Year Round

Splurging on Christmas decor might not work for many people since you get to admire its beauty only for a month or so. To solve this, try to focus on more versatile pieces that you can use for seasonal decor and beyond. Instead of bringing those festive decorations back to the basement or attic, you can use them all year round. We picked several versatile decor choices that will fit any home style. With a bit of creativity, you can transform them to match the current season.

Basic wreath

A leafy wreath isn’t only reserved for holiday decorations. A basic wreath is a classic piece that will amaze you with its versatility. Wrap it with a red bow for the holidays, and switch with burlap once you pack up the Christmas decor. A lovely wreath can become part of your spring mantel decor, bringing a dose of freshness after the holiday sparkle is put away.

Wooden candlesticks

If you wish to use your Christmas decor all year round, make sure to stay away from the classic red and green combo. Instead, opt for neutrals that will fit your interior style. These wooden candlesticks will enhance your Christmas vignettes with their charming appeal. On the other hand, these versatile pieces can also become part of your table centerpiece during the other seasons.
