The Home Depot is the destination for everything Christmas. Take inventory of your holiday lights, Christmas trees, decorations, inflatables, centerpieces, ornaments, wreaths and more. Should you find that you’re in need of some fresh ideas to replace the ho-ho-hum this year, we’ve got your covered!

Inside your home, add some garland to your staircase or fireplace mantel, or make a monogram garland wreath. Make a Christmas centerpiece for your dining table or create an ornament chandelier. Also, learn how to properly tie a bow on your Christmas gifts for a great presentation under the tree.

Make a Star Card Holder or Holiday Advent Calendar and add some joy to your holiday festivities this year. Our seasonal how-to guides will show you step-by-step how it’s done.

If your old artificial Christmas tree has seen better days, consider a new one made to brighten up your home. If you decide you miss the fragrance that a real Christmas tree provides, your local Home Depot store carries a variety of Christmas trees each year, sure to please all your guests.

Learn how to properly care for your fresh cut live Christmas tree by maintaining the water level to keep it from drying out and becoming a fire hazard.

For your outdoors, upgrade those old incandescent Christmas lights to new LED lights and save on your electric bills. Also, add an inflatable or two to show your Christmas spirit to your neighbors and brighten their holidays. Or choose a Santa and his reindeer display and place them next to your yard décor that you made yourself, with the help of our how-to guide, How To Make Holiday Tree Yard Décor.
