Gemini (May 21-June 20): Paper Snowflakes
Remember struggling to craft the perfect paper snowflake while in elementary school, only to push it aside in frustration? Well, Geminis wouldn’t necessarily find that feeling relatable considering how adaptable and speedy they tend to be when tackling any sort of task. Versatile and curious, this lively Air sign would likely decorate their abode with throwback DIY crafts (such as those pesky paper snowflakes the rest of us couldn’t quite master).
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Holiday Doormat
As one of the emotional Water elements (along with Pisces and Scorpio), Cancerians are known for being sympathetic, fiercely loyal (especially to family) and possessing a keen intuition.

Leo (July 23-August 22): Twinkle Lights
Often referred to as “natural born leaders” by astrologists, those born under this sign are often known for their bubbly personality and self-confidence.

Fittingly, they’re likely to opt for charming twinkle lights to brighten those dark winter months. Find more home decorating ideas based on your zodiac sign.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Holiday Wreaths
Analytical and down-to-earth, Virgos demonstrate a considerable amount of intelligence – although they also have the tendency to use self-criticism as a crutch. Their tendency towards perfectionism, however, makes it likely they’d opt for crafty or unique home decor pieces to brighten their homes during the cold, dark winter nights – think: handmade holiday wreaths.

Libra (September 23-October 22): Stuffed Stockings

Which is why evenly stuffed stockings with an equal amount of gifts inside would be their ultimate decor must-have. It should come as no surprise that Marie Kondo herself is a Libra.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Decorative Pine Cones
Resourceful, yet secretly emotional, Scorpios tend to avoid all things materialistic – which is why they’d embrace the relative simplicity of decorating their home with pine cones of all sizes. It’s also a decor pick that is closely in tune with the secretive, tough exterior they put on in public.

Pisces (February 19-March 20): Plaid Blankets and Pillows
