Fresh Holiday Decorating Theme: Black and White

Give your Christmas decorating a crisp winter touch with a black-and-white color scheme.

Arctic Chill

Touches of black and white bring an arctic feel into this cozy living room. Brown and red accents add warmth and appeal.

Decorate with Penguins

Use an old fireplace to create this penguin focal point. Stack logs sprinkled with artificial snow in the fireplace opening and dot with penguins.

Tiny House Ornaments

Craft tiny house ornaments out of recycled paper. Design a template and create tiny houses to hang on the tree. Vary the type of paper or ribbon to create a different effect.

Crystallized Creations

Intertwine strands of crystal beads in your tree. They'll reflect the light and incorporate the arctic, icy theme.

Creative Christmas Tree

Decorate a Christmas tree with repeated simple elements. Incorporate the crystallized theme with glass icicles and snowflakes, tiny white lights, and dots of red.

Frozen in Time

Fill a clear glass jar with artificial snow and place in front of an oversize winter photograph.

Recycled Wrapping

Use old newspapers to wrap gifts. Decorate with red, black, and white ribbon and accent with snowflake ornaments.

Framed Fabric

Cut out simple, two-tone designs from fabric. Adhere to white paper and place in frame with ribbon hanger.
