Pillows, blankets, quilts, rugs and any other item that uses fabric, threads or yarns can speak "Christmas", so add them where you can.
Pillows made from "silhouette" designed fabric that I have had for years, became two decorative pillows. A quilted, appliqued wall quilt replaces another framed piece during the holidays. Cross-stitched holiday greetings (made by my mother many years ago) hang in place both for their messages and remembrance.
One of the first fabric decoration that I made the first year of marriage was a tissue cover that looks like a gingerbread house. There are some patterns out there for simple covers. Simple placemats made of holiday prints can be made even without sewing. Try layering two fabrics with a product called "Heat n Bond", then cut with decorative scissors.
There are also felted table runners or squares that adorn some tables. Felt a design on squares of felt and hand stitch two pieces together and stuff ... special pillows.
I'm hoping to have time to finish up a "Log Cabin" quilt that I made just for this season to have on display by Christmas Day.
