Want to channel a bit of Joanna Gaines as you begin decorating your home for Christmas? The HGTV star of hit show "Fixer Upper" knows a thing or two about how to make a home feel cozy, festive and beautiful for the holidays.

We rounded up our favorite 11 holiday decor tricks you can steal — from pretty tablescapes to unique do it yourself touches. Whatever decorative route you choose, we promise these will give you as much joy this season as Joanna feels when she finds shiplap on demo day!

1. Top the table with greenery

Use clippings from your backyard or scraps from the local tree stand to liven up the dining table. So easy!

2. Use ornaments to make a wreath

Joanna bought this wreath made from vintage wooden ornaments from an antique shop, but you could also easily DIY one of your own.

3. DIY your centerpiece

For a simple and stunning centerpiece that costs less than $50, fill a glass vase with water and cranberries, then top with floating candles.

Make the staircase feel even more grand with this classic holiday decor trick.

7. Decorate with holiday songs

Write the lyrics to your favorite holiday songs on brown paper for a fun and festive touch above the mantle.

A bow is beautiful, but go the extra mile and add festive trinkets like bells, ornaments or even homemade pieces.

9. Pair wreaths together

It's double the fun!

10. Put mini trees in tin cans

For a rustic farmhouse look, swap the tree skirt for a tin can.

11. Drape cedar garland over art

Turn your artwork into a subtle holiday-inspired vignette with an effortless draped piece of garland.
