10 Ways to Use Metallics in Your Christmas Decor

Christmas Decor - Metallics

Getting tired of feeling like you're seeing in all red and green? Us too. Put away Grandma's knit throws and old red stockings. Shades of silver and gold are your best friends this season! Metallic decorations are the perfect way to spark holiday spirit in your home without looking like Christmas threw up all over your living room. Almost everything goes with shades of silver, gold, bronze or copper, so why not incorporate them in your holiday decorations? Little touches go a long way. Plus I think most of these adorable decorations could be used year round — bonus! Get your shine on with a few of our favorite ways to decorate with metallics for the holidays!

1. Candle Holders

Create a wanderlust Christmas by putting your candles in a metallic holder, such as silver or gold. Candle holders with specs throughout their design allow for the light to seep through, illuminating the entire area.

6. Pine Cones

You probably have this decoration right in your backyard. Grab all the pinecones you can and spray paint them different metallic shades. My favorite way to incorporate these in Christmas decor is by stacking them in a glass jar or spreading them out across a table.
