From banister decorating to a floral Christmas tree, these holiday decorating ideas caught our editors’ eyes on the ‘gram.

Our editors combed through their Instagram feeds to find some of their favorite picks and inspiration for holiday decorations, from banisters to a pampas Christmas tree. Here are the ‘grams we’re stealing ideas from this month.

Pampas Grass Christmas

Here’s a clever way to get the white Christmas look, without fake snow or tinsel. Plus, if you have pampas grass overflowing in your backyard, it’s an easy material to source! 

 

Double-Vision

Why just hang one wreath when you can hang two? These smaller wreaths balance beautifully with the hanging oil painting.

Floral Abundance

How beautiful is this floral Christmas tree? We love this DIY from Design Love Fest.

Tabletop Village

All the little details add up for one lovely holiday dining room. We spot the ceramic houses from our affordable and editor-approved Christmas decor picks.

Snow Fun

This little mudroom gets a casual holiday upgrade with a tartan scarf, a small sled, and a wreath hanging from a coat hook.

Let Love Rule

Whitney Leigh Morris’ Tiny Canal Cottage spreads the holiday love with hanging garlands and ornaments.

Tiny Yuletide Treasures

Can’t fit a Christmas tree? Try grouping three or four mini trees together instead for a small-scale twist.

Stairway Greenery

Keep your banister decor simple with a long garland that flows along the side, with a Charlie Brown-style tree below.

Woodland Wonder

This thick, asymmetrical garland is a total eye-catcher, and the 14 candlesticks add a delicate touch to the heavy greenery.

Joyful Curb Appeal

The lush holiday greenery pops against the bright door.

Hygge Outside

Even though it’s cold outside, don’t forget your outdoor spaces. Lights, wreaths, and firewood all add a holiday touch to your porch.

One for You, One for Me

The case for two Christmas trees: made. Fill the shorter tree with kid-friendly ornaments that can transition from the tree to playtime.
