Once you've picked out your tree, hung the wreath, and unpacked those faded family heirlooms, finding unique holiday decorations to compliment your tried-and-true staples is a must for celebrating the season. As you're browsing through selection after selection of ornaments, baubles, and centerpieces, consider the color and cheer high-quality Christmas wall decor can add to your holiday motif without causing extra clutter.

If you're new to using wall stickers, don't worry - it doesn't have to be harder than hanging ornaments on that gorgeous Douglas Fir you picked out. In most cases, you could even ask your kids to give you a hand with your design. Whether you're a newbie or not, start with these five tips for decorating with Christmas wall decals:

1. Know thy product in order to decorate. I'm sure Santa Claus would agree that no good holiday acquisition should go unresearched. Before you subtract a little from your seasonal budget, find out what you should know before purchasing wall decals. Some require priming or pretreating the wall while others are peel-and-stick simple. Most kinds are removable, but only a select few are removable and reusable for Christmases to come. To get the most bang for your buck, choose removable, reusable wall decal kits that are created with nontoxic materials and use a water-based adhesive that won't damage your walls during removal or repositioning.

2. Select a design to inspire joy all season long. Now that you know which wall stickers are best for keeping your walls looking pristine, make the most of your holiday wall decor by choosing winter wall decals that work just as well in January as they do in December. The best Christmas wall decals are versatile, include an abundance of re-arrangeable pieces, and could potentially serve as a general wintertime decoration, too. For example, an adorable snow scene will stay cute and timely until those fabulous springtime flowers start to steal the show.

3. Choose an area in need of some serious holiday cheer. As long as its coat of paint has had ample time to finish drying, any wall in your home can host removable, reusable holiday wall decorations. Your living room has long been the keeper of the Christmas tree, but your kitchen, bathroom, and hallway walls don't have to skimp on holiday spirit. Add Christmas wall decals to any space that could use a dose and you'll probably notice your usual holiday party guests mingling in more than one room for once. If keeping a lit tree in your child's bedroom makes you just nervous enough to inhibit a good night's rest, create a light-catching family of snowmen and snow women on the wall opposite his or her bed instead.

4. Keep your motif fresher than a live Christmas tree. If you chose a reusable wall sticker kit with a surplus of re-arrangeable accessories and re-positionable pieces, redesigning your decor only requires imagination and an extra five minutes for removing and re-sticking until you've revamped your holiday backdrop for another week of fresh Christmas decorations.

5. Stash 'em with the rest of your decorations until next year. Dragging your Christmas tree to the curb is always a pain, but putting your holiday wall decals away doesn't typically require vacuuming or bubble-wrapping. Reusable wall decals can be stored on their original paper backings after removal, placed back into their original containers, and stashed in a dry storage space until next Christmas. Come next year, they'll be good as new and ready for another season of highlighting the traditional holiday decorations you hold dear.
