Looking for easy ways to decorate your home for the holidays without going overboard or breaking the bank? We’ve got some simple decorating tips to get you into the holiday spirit.
Decorate with Candy
Candy canes are delicious ways to add a playful touch to your holiday decoration. Hang them on your tree or among the lights or wherever you want them!
Switch Those Candlesticks
A great way to decorate your tables is to swap out plain white candlesticks for festive green, red, or blue for a holiday touch.
A Fireplace of Poinsettias
Didn’t clean your chimney this year? No worries, your fireplaces is the perfect place to display those poinsettias for a festive and bright look.
Recycle and Reuse
Older holiday decorations can be used again and again. Just add a few new details like ribbons or lights to give it a new life! You’ll save some money and it’ll create a festive scene.
Pillows are Gifts Too
Tie some bigger ribbons around solid-color pillows to make them look as if they’re presents going under the tree. Then just place them on their chairs or sofas to give a spot of holiday cheer.
A Festive Centerpiece
In the middle of your table, decorate a serving tray or fill a glass bowl with some colorful ornaments. Even tuck in some ribbons or boughs of evergreen for a classic twist.
Make Your Own Snowglobe
Apothecary jars are able to hold some tiny winter wonderlands. Fill up some of the jar with some “snow” (Epsom salt) then stand bottlebrush trees and toy deer spray-painted gold to create that dreamy scene.
Festify the Birdbaths
Since the birds are gone for the winter, fill up the birdbath with some ornaments, pinecones, and even a bright bow to complete the scene.
Put up More Trees
You don’t just need one big tree — put up tiny ones to create more of a holiday style. You can place them in a damp cheesecloth to fit into the candle hole. Tie a holiday-hue ribbon at the base.
Overall, holiday decorating should be fun! So break out those holiday inspired platware and add some tinsel to every open available space. You’re place will be the most festive place on the block.
