You’ll never fully be in love with your home if you have all the same things as everyone else. This is true everyday, but especially during Christmas! That’s why I made this list of unique Christmas decorations.
Even though a lot of us want unique decorations, you also don’t want to start doing CRAZY things that you’ll end up hating in two weeks. These unique Christmas ideas are mostly similar products that you’ve seen before–garlands, mini-trees, wreaths, and signs.
But you’ve never seen these garlands and wreaths before.
Also, this year is an especially great year to support small businesses, due to the pandemic-which-shall-not-be-named. Everything from this list is from Etsy–both because it allows you to support small businesses and creatives, and also because it truly is the best place for unique decorations of all kinds.
If you want to jump to any specific sections, here’s what you’ll be seeing:
- Christmas Signs
- Decorative Christmas Trees
- Other Unique Christmas Decorations
These are the kind of Christmas decorations that make people smile and laugh individually. They will catch visitor’s eyes–not that you’ll actually have any. 😉

Unique Christmas Door Mats
Elf is my ALL TIME FAVORITE Christmas movie–and I love that you can pretty much hear the voice when you see this door mat.
There are probably fun Christmas door mats for every holiday movie or quote ever made, and less sarcastic door mats. This is such a fun way to put some unique-ness into your exterior Christmas decorations.
Unique Christmas Signs
TELL ME this isn’t the funniest wooden Christmas sign you’ve ever seen. JUST TRY TO TELL ME. Using movie quotes like this would make ANYONE happier in their home–it’s just science.
This framed envelope sign is one of my favorites on this list. How unique and beautiful!
This joy sign is made to look like birch wood–which, again, is almost definitely the most beautiful kind of tree. 😉
Customized Initial Front Door Sign
You can get any initial made into this snowflake door sign. How simple, classic, and beautiful.

Unique Christmas Garlands
Felt balls are SUCH a cute way to make beautiful and bright garlands–I’ve seen them done beautifully for Fall decorations and Christmas.
If you are as obsessed with felt balls as I am, there are tons of other Christmas felt ball garlands on Etsy. Or you can purchase felt balls and make your own!
There is also a felt ball Christmas wreath a little bit further down this article…
The Etsy shop that makes this “Oh What Fun” banner actually makes them in a bunch of different patterns. I love the red in this image, but you should go look at the fun snowman and plaid patterns that might work better in your home.
Unique Decorative Mini-Christmas Trees
The especially cool thing about these is that you can order them in any color and in three different sizes, and they range from $8-12. Is this giving you visions of rainbow Christmases?
Because, um, YES.
How unique are these cone Christmas trees?! They are labeled “minimalist style”–which I can see. However, I could also see decorating these little cones with color!
These are perfect for tee lights, and for adding just a little bit of color and metallics to any Christmas decor that you already have.
Wooden mini Christmas trees. These are so cute and versatile, I bet you can’t find a place in your house where they wouldn’t look cute.
Usually people take pride in having the biggest, tallest, and fluffiest Christmas trees–but tell me this doesn’t make you happy!
Psssst, this is actually one of the trees in my other list of Christmas trees for small spaces. It’s unique, saves space, AND beautiful.
Unique Christmas Wreaths
Did you ever think those 37 cent felt sheets in the craft store could be turned into something so beautiful?
Another great thing about felt decorations is that it’s actually pretty durable. You don’t want to squish them, but they are a light alternative to pin wreaths and a durable alternative to paper wreaths.
Here we go with the felt balls again! This could be a DIY project if you know how to put colors together in such a beautiful way.
These snowman wreaths are even more eye-catching in person than they are as you scroll through this list. I made one of my own a few years ago (before I know how to take quality pictures for the internet)–and it is such a unique way to decorate your home! I got many compliments on mine.
This is made out of fake hydrangea flowers–which are not typically used for Christmas decor, which is what makes this especially beautiful and unique.
Unique Christmas Ornaments
There are only two types of ornaments on this list because it seems like we’ve seen it all at this point. However, these colorful ornaments are made with gold leaf, and the snowflake is hand-made. Both are STUNNINGLY beautiful and well-made.
Other Unique Christmas Decorations
The Christmas season is emotional and powerful for so many people, for completely different reasons. For me, it’s powerful and more incredible and emotional than I have words for, because of what the Nativity represents–Jesus Christ choosing to come to Earth for us.
It’s important to me–but I haven’t been able to have anything glass or ceramic in my house since my daughter was born five years ago. And why are 95% of Nativity sets breakable? These are questions of the ages.
I love that these peg dolls are a) adorable, and b) a unique way for me to include the Nativity in my home. There are many different choices on Etsy, so if you have a house of crazies like I do, check these out.
I’m sorry–did you miss that?! THESE DECORATIONS ARE MADE OUT OF BOOK PAGES! Say what?!
If you are any kind of book-lover, there is nothing more unique and incredible than these.
SERIOUSLY?! Have you ever seen wine look cuter?! This is as festive as wine can get. It’s decided.
You could also use these cute little hats in other ways as part of your Christmas gifts.
Last, but not least, is this metal 3D snowflake. Honestly, snowflakes are beautiful no matter what–remember the paper snowflakes you used to make in elementary school? This one really brings attention to the real three-dimensional-ness of snowflakes, and I think it’s stunning.
