Christmas Ornaments are not just for Christmas Anymore!

Like most people, we spent a good portion of the weekend putting away Christmas decorations. Putting Christmas decorations up = fun. Taking Christmas decorations down and putting them away = not so much fun.

Some decorations were tough to put away and I found myself finding new uses for them. Like these faux crystal ornaments that I purchased for our tree this year.

They were just too pretty to put away and I thought they would look so pretty in my dressing room. So, now they hang on my curtain rod to add just a little bit more sparkle to my room.

Also, I added one to the bottom of my Ikea chandelier just to make it sparkle a teeny bit more.

How about you? Are you having a tough time putting all of your Christmas decorations away? Have you found a way to include some Christmas decorations into your daily decor?


  1. This idea is sheer genius! However, I don't think my mom would like it too much if I started hanging glittery snowflakes all around the house. :P

  2. such a cute idea! I'm down for anything that will let me keep Christmas around a bit longer!

  3. I keep some of my decorations up year round also, I love hanging the ornaments from the curtain rod - inspired!

  7. Gotta love this idea! I did the same thing a couple days ago with some snowflake ornaments we had on the tree. Just couldn't part ways with them! :)

  8. I love that idea! I always hate putting away the Christmas decorations because I feel like the house looks so much less festive.

  9. Just stopping in from SITs to say hello and Happy New Year! I love to re-purpose ornaments and decorations too.
