This Light Up Glitter Houses Advent Calendar is a great way for you and your family to countdown the days to Christmas! This Light Up Glitter Houses Advent Calendar is filled with vintage-style bottle brush trees and numbered mini Putz-style houses on the side of a snowy mountain! The name for Putz houses evolves from the German word “putzen,” which means to clean or decorate! Advent calendars trace back to the 19th century in Germany when families would use chalk marks on doors or lit candles to count the days leading up to Christmas. Gerhard Lang created the first printed Advent calendar, which was inspired by one his mother had made for him featuring 24 colored pictures attached to a piece of cardboard. Inspired by his mother’s design, Lang modified his calendar to include little doors which are now a staple in most Advent calendars to this day! For this Light Up Glitter Houses Advent Calendar, you can create your own family tradition by hiding little candies or other small surprises inside each cardboard house to excite your family leading up to Christmas!

2. 6 SIMPLE & BRILLIANT CHRISTMAS DECORATING IDEAS: Bring the Outside In

The easiest way to change up any space in your home for any season is with greenery! If you don’t have much decor or don’t know which type of items to invest in, high-quality faux greenery is a must! Faux greenery is a lifetime investment that pays off in the long run because you can re-use it every year and it helps you save money by not buying real greenery that dies every year! The best type of faux greenery to invest in is timeless greenery that can be used throughout multiple holidays or seasons!

This Flocked Winter Pine Tree in Galvanized Bucket will add cozy vibes all winter long! Sometimes putting up a large Christmas tree with ornaments and lights can feel super overwhelming, especially during the most stressful time of the year! That’s when it’s important to keep things simple by simply adding a tree that is all ready to go straight from the box! This Flocked Winter Pine Tree in Galvanized Bucket already comes with so many details! It’s beautifully crafted from faux pine with pine cones in a corrugated metal bucket with moss! As a flocked, soft green tree, this perfectly neutral tree looks great as-is within any home decor style!

Plus these items are perfectly neutral and can be left up throughout the entire winter season!

3. 6 SIMPLE & BRILLIANT CHRISTMAS DECORATING IDEAS: Big Statement Makers

Big statement makers make you go – WOW! They are THE FIRST ITEM you notice because not only are they HUGE in size, but they are also incredibly UNIQUE in design!

If you find it overwhelming to focus on too many details, including ONE big statement item is the best way to decorate your space to make it easy on yourself!

This HUGE Metal Merry Christmas Sign is 47″ FULL of Christmas spirit! If you don’t have anything else for Christmas decor, this sign is all you need to make an easy impact in any space.

6. 6 SIMPLE & BRILLIANT CHRISTMAS DECORATING IDEAS: Unexpected Finishing Touches

After styling your favorite decor items into a space, a designer will always include unexpected details to complete the look. It’s easy to decorate with large items that look good, but it’s harder to fill in the gaps with details that fine-tune your look and allow your bigger pieces to shine more! The key is knowing how to incorporate both together. Think of this as adding some home decor accessories to complement and complete the overall look of your space!

These Oversized Rusted Finish Christmas Bells and Oversized Holiday Market Cowbells are a unique way to add winter decor outside of incorporating Santa and Christmas trees! The Oversized Rusted Finish Christmas Bells would make such a unique fabulous tree topper for your Christmas tree. The Oversized Holiday Market Cowbells come with fun festive phrases and can be used as tabletop decor in your centerpiece or can also be turned around to hide the holiday phrases for a more neutral farmhouse look during the rest of the year. Get multiple bells to line up along your entire mantel or place across your entire dining room tablescape! Both bell options are great for nestling within your Christmas tree decor, centerpieces, or tied to your garland on your mantel!
