The holiday season lasts a few months, and, of course, you want your holiday decorations to look good all season long. We've come up with our top choices for some long-lasting holiday decorations that are perfect for every home. Don't be afraid to use your imagination to put your own special touch on each.


Wreaths are a holiday staple, and they come in just about every size, color, and style you can think of. Depending on the material, your wreath might start to wither after a few days out on display. Consider finding a wreath made with longer lasting materials or get some supplies from the local craft store and make your own, just the way you want (here’s a DIY guide for inspiration). As long as you store them properly, wreaths can be reused year after year.

Wrapped Gift Boxes

Not sure what to do with all those empty boxes from last year? No problem! They'll make great holiday decorations. Wrap them in sturdy gift paper and put a pretty ribbon on them. Then simply stack them in small piles throughout your home or workplace to add some festive holiday cheer that will last the whole season.

Fillable Ornaments

Create your own fillable ornaments to hang around your house or office. You can design them with warm autumn colors in mind to be more fall/Thanksgiving-themed, or throw in some snow (cotton) and a few mini-presents to give them a winter/holiday feel.

Do you have a favorite holiday decoration that you reuse every year? Check out some of our other awesome ideas at the Redstone at SanTan Village blog.
