The world comes alive at Christmas. Home exteriors are adorned with strands of lights, wreaths, and garlands. Inside the home, the Christmas tree takes center stage with seasonal art, stockings and candles adding festivity to the home.
The family room and foyer are often the centers of the décor, but you don’t have to neglect the kitchen. Here are some ideas for getting your kitchen ready for the holidays.
- Reused wine bottles – You can repurpose old wine bottles and use them as Christmas decorations in the kitchen. Wrap each wine bottle with Christmas paper and make them into vases for Christmas flowers, such as poinsettias, and pine sprigs. You can put three or four bottles on a golden plate and use the arrangement as a centerpiece for the dining room table.
- Frosty pinecones – Get some pinecones and attach them by glue to a tree branch that is painted white. Make the pinecones look natural by not touching them with the white paint. Use salt instead of glitter on the pinecones to simulate frost. You can put the tall branches in a flowerpot and set the arrangement in a corner of the kitchen in place of the Christmas tree.
- Lighted grapevine wreaths – Decorate your kitchen with lighted grapevine wreaths that you could easily craft at home. Gather grapevines and form them into a wreath. Spray paint the wreath with either white or silver. Then wrap Christmas lights around the wreath and hang it on the kitchen wall.
- Kitchen decorating ideas from Appliance Art – You can infuse your kitchen with the Christmas spirit by covering your dishwasher and refrigerator with appliance covers that depict Christmas scenes, from Santa Claus and his reindeers to a glowing fireplace on a cold winter night. Refrigerator covers and dishwasher covers from Appliance Art are the perfect way to make your kitchen sparkle for the holidays.
The kitchen is functional, but it’s also the heart of the home. Make sure to fill it with the magic of Christmas.
