Have you ever thought which is the color that associates most with Christmas? It is red- the color of celebrations and the color of Santa Claus!
Red creates an amazing festive feeling against the rich dose of green pine twigs we tend to use in the Christmas decor. And while red could be barely seen in the decor for any other holiday, on Christmas you are allowed to use it generously!
Red is an eye-catching color and matches easily with the interior and exterior in winter. It makes the ambiance brighter and ready for the Christmas holiday. Red must be added to the Christmas tree, but it can be used also to accentuate the table centerpiece, to define the accents of the winter decor in every room. Red is all about winter miracles!
Do you wonder where and how to add the varying hues of red in your home? Read the best 25 Dazzling Red Christmas Decor Ideas to charge your home with Christmas spirit.
1. Berries Galore and Ornament Chandeliers
It is considered a lazy trick to decorate the chandeliers with Christmas embellishments. Indeed, making it is quick and fun as you simply wrap the basis with a preliminarily prepared garland.
The pine tree garlands are flexible and vary in look. Attach red baubles on the garlands with ribbons or metal hooks. Continue the red-themed decor on the festive table using berry twigs as embellishments. Combined with pine tree twigs they create a charming accent that enhances the festiveness.

2. Primitive Caddy Full of Holiday Cheer
A Christmas celebrated with vintage farmhouse decor promises coziness and a homely atmosphere to warm you up. This caddy acts as a centerpiece of a side table placed behind the sofa.
Its weathered look bears so much history and makes the container very special. Pine tree garlands fill the inside of the box letting red berry fruits peek out to spread red cheer. The decoration on the handle of the caddy adds to the festive atmosphere consisting of green, red and burlap strips tied around it.

3. Plaid and Faux Fur Bedding Suite
It is amazing to bring the Christmas spirit to all rooms, including the bedroom. The easiest and most universal type of Christmas decor for the bedroom is to lay a festive bedding set.

4. Retro Letter Light Stair Decorations
Looking for red Christmas decor for the staircase? The pine tree garland is a typical embellishment for the rails of the staircase. Here we suggest an idea of how to easily upgrade it and make it look eye-catching and cheerful.

5. Festive Patterned Gift Box Candle Pedestals
Repurpose leftover lumber into cheerful Christmas pedestals for candles. Use the red and white colors to decorate the 4×4 pieces in attractive patterns.
The shapes can be easily obtained with painter’s tape. Once the coats have dried, stick chalkboards labels to the front and write festive and merry messages.
Ribbons, tiny twigs with berries or mini wreaths can give the candle pedestals a finishing touch.
