The holidays can be a stressful and busy time. If you haven’t been able to squeeze in holiday decorating yet, don’t worry! We’ve pulled together a few easy and inexpensive ways to dress up your home for the holiday season – we do more than heating (furnace) repair!
Adding a fresh element to your holiday decorating is an easy and simple way to dress up your home for the holiday season. Evergreen wreaths hanging on the front door or in windows are a classic way to trim your home and poinsettias add a splash of cheer and colour. Dig out old colourful decorations, gather some pinecones or buy some cinnamon sticks and display them in a bowl or vase on the table for a quick holiday centrepiece.
Scented candles add an additional dimension to holiday decorating. Not only do they smell festive, but they can be a decoration in and of themselves. Use a rustic outdoor lantern inside, or nestle a candle in a votive holder filled with cranberries. Group different sized and coloured candles together on a platter and use it as a centerpiece on a coffee table. The possibilites are endless. Just be sure to always keep an eye on burning candles and to keep them out of reach of children and pets.
Ornaments can be used to decorate more than just Christmas trees. Hang them outside on bare tree branches to create a festive outdoor scene. You can hang them inside from chandeliers or bannisters to create stunning effects. Transform ordinary garlands by adding ornaments and draping them over mirrors or windows.
Don’t forget the most important part of holiday decorating – lights! You can outline the whole house and make sure every bush and tree is lit, or if you’re tight on time, decorate a select few places around your home.
