This trick totally took my holiday decor to the next level.

Our Modern Update on a Holiday Decor Classic

Kristin’s back today sharing a really smart way to bring your holiday decor up a notch this year. I’m already eyeing a large window in our living room to try it out!

Decorating for the holidays can be so much fun!  I love changing things out and making each year slightly different from the last.  This year, I wanted to stray a little bit from all the greenery that I used last year.

Target has so many options for inexpensive ornaments, so I bought a couple value packs and started playing around with them.

I settled on stringing a few different sizes and tying the ends to create a loop.  The loop can hang on a nail, so it is snug to the wall.

I also found some glittery strands at Target and that completed the look.  I love the modern take on a holiday garland.  I hope it inspires you to freshen up your holiday decor from last year!

I left my greenery in the storage boxes this year thinking that it just looked too heavy for my house. This is a great alternative, thanks so much for sharing it!

Glad you like it Nicole! I have a feeling greenery will come back in the next few years, but for now, this feels modern and fresh!

What a cool idea to put the ornaments up on the window like that!

Thanks for a great idea! I incorporated them into my tree. I gave you credit on my blog for the idea too. (JulieSaidWhat.com)
