Christmas is the perfect time for decorative bowls set on side tables. It’s one of the easiest decor methods out there, but it instantly reminds people of Christmas bobbles hung on trees. That doesn’t mean, however, that you have to choose traditional Christmas colours. Try going with your gut and setting out cheerful purple Christmas decor like Minimalisti did here!

4. Purple DIY string ball lights

Have you ever seen large hanging string balls used for simple decor, or single large string balls made into pendant lights? This is the same idea, only shrunk down small enough to fit along a string of little white lights. Using purple string or painting the finished ball purple creates a pretty purple glow when the light shines through. Destination Femme guides you through the process.

Transforming your bed into a purple haven is one of the most obvious and most comforting ways to incorporate the colour into your bedroom’s decor scheme. We absolutely adore how Stagetecture did it with this tufted purple headboard! Talk about a statement piece.

If you love purple that much, you might as well really commit to it! Sayeh Pezeshki did so by taking the colour scheme right to the walls. These straight, eye catching purple lines are created by using tape to ensure that you paint a clean edge, then peeling it off carefully once everything has dried completely.

9. Purple glitter duct tape DIY light switch covers

Okay, so technically these particular sparkly light covers by The Crafty Blog Stalker are made with pink glitter tape, but we couldn’t resist including them because they’d look so adorable if you did it in purple! This project is quick and easy and lets you incorporated your favourite colour as a subtle but fun accent in case things like a completely purple bed aren’t your style.
