Classy Leather Decoration Ideas For Christmas
Are you hosting a Christmas gathering this year? If so, you’re probably wondering how to create an inviting, festive feel to your home decor.
This is the perfect moment to incorporate your love of leather into your home decorating scheme.
Your table will be the scene of cherished holiday memories. Make it extra memorable with unique leather containers spilling over with pinecones, evergreen branches, and delightful red holly berries. Go the extra mile by crafting adorable miniature snowmen out of leather, and placing them as a sweet decoration on each individual plate. If you just can’t get enough of leather table decorations, try crafting a collection of decorative snowflakes and poinsettia leaves to add to the table setting.
Use leather to create a unique and stylish centerpiece for your table. Just stitch a leather plant pot with a pattern of delicate mistletoe and holly, then fill it with evergreen branches to make a fun display.
Another option is to add leather trimming to some old candle holders. These will provide a lovely glow to your holiday meal. Scatter whole nuts and pinecones around them for added effect.
Engrave a motto like “Home For the Holidays” on a leather surface and frame it for some truly unique Christmas wall art. Another fun possibility is engraving a map of a place that has special meaning for your family, such as their hometown or their favorite vacation destination. This is a highly personal decorative item that perfectly fits the holiday theme, and can also be passed down from one generation to the next or even used as a Christmas gift.
Leather coasters, decorated with festive block patterns, are a fun and stylish way to personalize your holiday table. But you don’t have to confine yourself to using them as traditional coasters. Arrange them in decorative clusters around the table or place them together in a strip down the center of your table to give it a look that’s truly elegant. Another possibility is to use them as trivets for holding hot platters or using a leather paint pen and writing each guest's name on them at the dinner table.
Take a simple glass container and wrap it with gorgeous vegetable tan leather. Add some saddle hand-stitching with linen thread for a look that’s both natural and elegant. These simple vases will match any decor that you choose for Christmas and beyond. Fill them with arrangements of poinsettias and holly, and then swap these out for red roses afterward as Valentine’s Day nears.
Use festive metallic leathers and brass to craft beautiful wall hangers for your plants. These can be placed in your living room, patio, and entryway for a cozy, yet a fun party, effect.
A selection of decorative throw pillows offers a simple yet effective way to change your decorating theme with the changing seasons. Replace your everyday throw pillows with leather-accented pillows, sporting winter colors and patterns.
With these ideas in mind, you’re ready to use the timelessness of leather to create an unforgettable holiday celebration.
