This Is How Fixer Upper's Chip & Joanna Gaines Deck The Halls

If you're like me, you look to Chip and Joanna Gaines for all your home-decor advice. Their rustic design ideas can transform any space — even my shoebox-sized Brooklyn apartment — into a shabby-chic dream. So it makes sense to follow their example when it comes to holiday decor, too. However, if you've never had the chance to catch one of the Fixer Upper holiday episodes, you may not be well-versed in how the couple decks out their farmhouse for Christmas. Luckily, Joanna Gaines, like any good HGTV star, keeps her Instagram updated with designs from her renovations, shop, bed and breakfast, and family home.

Last holiday season, she posted tons of photos of the festive additions she made to her many spaces. We've collected all her unique ideas for decorations and entertaining right here. The photos are sure to spark inspiration for how you can spread holiday cheer throughout your home this year — take a look.

"Setting a table for the holidays is always my favorite. I get to pull out all of my antique dishes, vintage cups, and napkin rings- most of which I got for under five bucks a piece. Over the years I've collected these items or as Chip would say 'hoarded' them. Our families have grown in number and it's so fun to see all these mix-matched pieces come together on the table to celebrate this season of thankfulness!"

"I just may have bought this wreath today at an antique shop. My kids are scared of it. Vintage wooden ornaments are hard to come by annnnnd I'm a sucker for a collection of things already collected."
