Welcome Merrymakers! As you know, Christmas is the best time of the year for most of us. The delicious food, the carol singing, the chilly weather, the Christmas decor, and the whole holiday season vibe in general is just perfect. However, Christmas 2020 is extra special as we are bidding adieu to the most challenging year in decades. So in the spirit of merry goodbyes to negativity, here are some unique (DIY) hygge Christmas decoration ideas to deck your halls.

So, Christmas aesthetics, here we come!

Ice skates wreath

As much as we love our traditional wreaths, it can sometimes get monotonous. Since this year hasn’t been anywhere close to our expectations, unique and unexpected decorations are in order – don’t you think? So this Christmas 2020, bring out your gorgeous skates, add pom-poms, holiday greens, and silver ornaments. If you don’t have ice skates, try combat boots – just make sure to clean them thoroughly.

DIY green baubles

A simple yet unique and elegant DIY Christmas decoration. So for this, you need transparent baubles and some herbs like eucalyptus or rosemary. Even pine would work well. Once ready, you can collectively hang the baubles on the wall or use them as Christmas ornaments to decorate your tree sparsely. Because, remember, the more vacant and sparse your tree, the more elegant the finishing look.
