Quick and Easy Holiday Decorating
A red wool table-runner trimmed in gold transforms a corner of your room into a winter wonderland with little effort. Add a snowman and a snow-globe to complete the look.
Pull together a stack of favorite holiday books. Winter themed books that all tell a seasonal story are the best. Gathered in one spot, they make an easy decorating statement. Look at these before and after pictures. Notice how I left the plants? They add a nice bit of green to my winter look.
A glass cup filled with dice, playing cards that are conversation starters, and a bowl of finger puppets make everyone feel young at heart. Placed on a festive table-cloth in your living room, you’re ready to entertain for the holidays.
Bowls filled with oranges and lemons are lovely around this time of year. They’re also ready to be eaten. Decorating with fruit or vegetables is festive and frugal.
Pop popcorn and string it for your tree or mantel. Using a very sharp needle, string to your desired length. Popcorn looks very old-fashioned and festive on a Christmas tree.
Look around your house for quick and easy holiday decorating items. Decorating your home for the holidays doesn’t have to take lots of time, cost much money or generate waste. By using items you already have and displaying fruits in a pretty bowl, your home will be frugal, fun, and fancy in no time.
