The holidays are fast approaching along with cooler weather, the chance to settle in while getting comfy and cozy indoors. It is also the time of year where we can pull our holiday decorations out of storage and plan an evening or weekend turning our home into a seasonally acceptable wonderland.
Below, we have a few easy ways you can decorate your home for the upcoming holiday season.
If you have extra candles, mason jars, or vases laying around, then you have the beginning items you need to create some wintry décor for the home. Grab a bag of Epsom salt you undoubtedly have laying around and pour some into the container of your choice.
You can then grab those votive candles and push them into the salt, so they are snug and secure. Once lit, you will have a beautiful warm glow. It makes the perfect décor for a coffee table or any other counter or table surface in the home.
Having a dinner party to celebrate the holidays? Maybe you have a few guests who will be staying over. You can make personalized place cards to make your guest feel more at home. When it comes time to clear out a space for them to stay, you can move the items into your storage unit and then add a few personal touches to the space, so it feels like you spent time preparing for their visit instead of it being just an afterthought.
Calligraphy place cards or themed cards are great for any tablescape and will make them feel as if they have a special place at the table. If you have more than one guest and guest room, you can create cards for the doors, so they know which room is meant for them.
What holiday décor would be complete without a few pinecones? These ideas are endless and the best part? They are easy to do and very affordable. Pinecones placed in a bowl make a great centerpiece, or you can use them to create a beautiful wreath for the front door.
Don't leave the windows bare and out in the cold as you decorate. You can take a few of those leftover pine cones and hang them from festive ribbon to add a very holiday-like touch to your windows.
Create a Star
Want something that will make more of a statement in the home this holiday season? Consider creating a DIY Barnwood star. It will make the perfect addition to your mantle or side table. It is also versatile because you can switch out the ribbon for whatever holiday.
