Christmas Decorating Ideas: Easy and Quick Holiday Decorations
Decorating for the holidays need not be expensive - creativity will make up for expense every time. Here are some quick and easy Christmas decorating ideas you might
try. Christmas decorations can be made out of fruit, vegetables, ribbon, lace, decorative paper, foil, artificial flowers and foliage, cut flowers, tree branches,
pinecones and a host of other materials - even Christmas wrapped boxes that are empty inside.
Colorful handmade stocking stuffers hung from the mantle are a delight to children and adults alike. Think outside the box. Make them colorful and individual.
If making them for a specific child, try to incorporate hobbies or sports that the child likes. They will be delighted.
Herbs hung upside down in the kitchen bring some of the festivity into a room that often gets neglected. You might like the decorations so much you leave them up
after the holidays are over. Simple to hang. What else can you display in your kitchen?
Four Additional Holiday Tips
- Save your self time - Don't wire your lights to the tree itself. Instead, organically intertwine the lights with the branches. They will stay in place if you
wind them around the tree. Tuck them in. After you get everything else hung, you won't notice the wires at all.
- Frost the faux aspen branches with an iridescent powder. this will give the tree unexpected twinkle. That is if you have a faux tree.
- Get some pull-apart cotton from your local craft store to simulate fluffy snow. It's an easy, affordable way to add a little personality to the tree. The cotton
also helps to hide cords and helps fill gaps in between the branches.
- Sketch the tree in your mind. Look for natural elements from your part of the country to add to the mix. Consider dried native grasss, pheasant feathers,
bird's nests. You get the idea.

HOW TO HANG ARTWORK

the wall for several months. You've been stepping around them and over them for some time. They're there because you're just not sure where to hang them or

around furniture. So you've been living with nothing on the walls at all and your home looks pretty sterile and unappealing.
