I have said it before and I will say it again... the holiday season seems to bring out everyone's inner decorator. There is just something about holiday cheer that makes people get just a it more creative. Lord knows I do! For instance, I love to find new and not-so-ordinary ways to decorate with common holiday decor, like ornaments! Who the heck said that ornaments can solely be used on trees and no where else?! ( because I'd like to have a talk with them! ) Ornaments can make for such a fun and festive way to add some color anywhere in your home throughout the holidays. Don't believe me? Well I've got some great examples coming your way. Time to spread some holiday cheer of my own!
Here's How I'm Decorating With Ornaments
Put Your Vases To Use
One of my favorite ways to decorate with ornaments is also one of the easiest. They happen to look great in vases, especially large ones. I will sometimes pair my ornaments with other great holiday items, like pine cones and garland, and placing them in large vases can make for the perfect centerpiece on your dining table. Want them to stand out even further? I always get compliments on my arrangements that also have battery operated lights intertwined with the ornaments.
Make Your Mantle Pop
We all love to hang our stocking from the mantle. I personally love to add some garland wrapped in string lights and some small ornaments to my mantle as well. It makes for a great and easy way to bring your entire space together through your decor. You can even apply the same idea to your coffee table. Add some garland, candles, and ornaments to a cute tray just like I did in this holiday post!

Let Your Creativity Flow!
Hopefully this has given you plenty of new and fun ideas to elevate your holiday decorations this year. Just because ornaments are made to be hung from a tree does not mean you need to limit yourself. Find great and gorgeous new uses for those beautiful balls of color and wow your guests this season. Cheers!
