Ginger Wreath rubyed out copyWant to add some holiday cheer to your home without breaking the bank? Try these tips to make your space festive in a flash.

  • Make your mantel merry. Fill clear vases with seasonal items like candy canes, dreidels, or colorful ornaments. You can add extra style by displaying an odd number of vases at various heights and accenting with freshly cut evergreen branches.
  • Trim a tasty tree. Make or buy delicious ornaments like ginger snaps, popcorn strands or candy canes. Add an extra flourish by unrolling a long strand of festive ribbon from the top of the tree to the bottom.
  • Create a celebration-worthy centerpiece. Fill a simple glass bowl with styrofoam fruit sprayed in a metallic gold or silver paint. Add in a festive runner and tea candles for extra drama.
  • Add whimsy with wooden toys. Collect retro toys from flea markets or garage sales and decorate your conversation areas with them. It’s sure to bring out the child in all your guests!
  • Get creative with holiday cards. Wondering what to do with all those holiday cards? Display them on a faux garland and clip with clothespins sprayed with glitter.
  • I am giving you these ideas this year so you don’t have to decorate me…again.
