Follow these simple tips to dress up the outside of your home this holiday season without spending a lot of money while doing it.
Everyone loves decorating for the holidays, but it can be such a hassle. The time, the money, the tangled lights. But these simple ideas can help you decorate your home the way you want while still doing the things you want to do this holiday season. They're quick, inexpensive, and fun.
- · Make it shine!
Stringed lights are beautiful and come in all shapes and sizes. Big bulbs, little bulbs, nets, twinkling, and more. Lights are the perfect foundation to any great decoration. And you can often find them marked down after the holidays, so start planning next year's decoration now.
- · Candy Cane Charm!
Wrap candy canes in decorative ribbon and hand them out or set them around your home. These sweet treats are festive and delicious.
- · Feed the birds!
These delightful decorations are fun and easy to make, look festive, and taste great (if you're a bird). Spread peanut butter over pine cones and then cover them in birdseed. Finish it off with decorative bows and hang them outside.
- · Branch out!
While you're outside hanging the pine cones be sure to grab some beautifully shaped branches for your next project. After they've dried thoroughly, place them in decorative containers. You can paint the pot as well as the branch. Hang decorations, ribbons, and lights to really make it stand out.
- · Be inviting!
A simple and affordable idea that also looks great to anyone walking by your home are grapevine wreaths in the window. And you can attach things to each one: holiday cards, bulbs, ribbons, or more.
- · That's a wrap!
With all these decorations lying around, there's only one thing left to do: wrap your front door to look like a giant present.
Have fun this holiday season and be creative!
