Fun Decorating Ideas to Kick-start the Holiday Season
Holiday Sh-ELVES (see what we did there?)
Too many gifts under the tree — or no tree at all? Use a bookshelf! To unify the look, wrap with kraft paper and add black, white, and silver touches.
Upgrade a plain coir mat with graphic white trees. Even easier, add a few stripes of red paint to a metal pail. This just might be the easiest DIY you'll ever do. You can even get the kids and have fun together!
Christmas trees, ribbons, Santa Claus, and the like are all great but Christmas is never complete without the glittering lights. Put them on the walls and you know the holiday season is indeed just around the corner!
Craft Your Own Tree
Tired of the old green or white Christmas tree? Use yarn to style a mini version on an empty wall or in a hallway. Enlist the kids to dress it to the nines with paper-circle "ornaments" and felt, attached with tape.
Operation Couch Dress-up!
When the season calls for snuggling up the couch and watching Christmas movies, you don't want to skimp on the throw pillows. Add more red for some Christmas flare!
