Eco-Friendly Holiday Décor Ideas

November 30, 2021

With the holiday season upon us, you may be looking forward to decking out your living space with festive décor to celebrate what some call the most wonderful time of the year. If you’ve also  been dreaming of purchasing a new home in the near future now is a great time to buy. Our beautiful conservation community in Elizabeth, Colorado, provides many housing options from highly sought-after builders with several spacious floor plans to showcase your seasonal decorations. Since our neighborhood is centered around sustainability, we encourage accessorizing with eco-friendly materials this year. Here, we share some inspirational ways to make your brand-new house feel like a home, while honoring Mother Earth during the holiday season:

Repurpose Sweaters to Make Stockings

In need of stockings to hang by the fireplace? Instead of buying new, consider repurposing the old sweaters at the back of your closet. Even if you’re a sewing novice, this stocking tutorial is easy to follow, and the end result will be a holiday staple that you cherish for years to come. Plus, those sweaters that you never wear anymore will enjoy a new purpose instead of ending up in a landfill.

Opt for LED Lights

Lights are a quintessential part of the holiday season. Regardless of how you celebrate, twinkling lights bring cheer this time of year. When you opt for LED lighting, you won’t have to worry about excessive energy usage. This type of lighting is energy efficient and has an impressive lifespan, so you shouldn’t have to purchase new lights very often.

Host a Holiday Décor Swap

Tired of reusing the same décor each year? Instead of purchasing new decorations, consider recruiting friends for a holiday décor swap (plus, it’s a great way to get to know your neighbors!). In addition to ensuring that you decorate sustainably, this practice can become an annual holiday tradition.

If you’re looking forward to celebrating the holiday season in your new residence, using eco-friendly décor is a great way to be gentle on the planet.
