Wine Bottle Decorations
Don’t throw away all those wine bottles after your holiday parties. Replace the labels with a festive wrap, add a bow, and place a candle in the bottle for a simple centerpiece or side decoration.
Get Creative with the Coffee Table
Your coffee table is the perfect item to redecorate for the holiday. Dress up a simple tray with peppermints and a candle for a festive twist.
Use Leftover Ornaments
If you have leftover ornaments after decorating your tree, find other places around your house to use them (on wreaths, for example).
Use Candy as Decoration
Candy (like peppermints and chocolates) are an inexpensive way to make your home flavorful and festive. Candy canes are also great for hanging around the house.
If you have extra mittens lying around the house, hang them in different places as holders for other festive items.
Decorating your house doesn’t have to be a chore. Get creative with the items that you choose and turn your home into a cozy refuge from the cold weather.
