Last Minute Decorating

In the spirit of the season, I searched the web for some images of easy (and cheap) holiday decorating ideas. My favorite ideas are:

  • decorating with wrapped presents – you already have to wrap them, so use them to liven up a centerpiece or mantelpiece. I would suggest using paper whose patterns are simple and whose colors are coordinated
  • displaying natural objects, such as pine cones, orange pomanders, greenery, and nuts, in bowls or large hurricanes – these are cheap from the grocery store or free from your backyard
  • re-potting poinsettias – take them out of the cheap metallic wrapper and put them into attractive and colorful pots
  • displaying round glass ornaments in areas other than the tree – hanging from chandeliers, grouped in glass containers, or adorning wreaths
  • using cranberries as a flower frog – it adds color to a plain glass vase and keeps flowers in place
  • using a collection of colorful scarves as a tree skirt
  • wrapping pillar candles in cinnamon sticks or peppermint sticks
  • adding festive ribbon to anything – Chair backs, candle bases, vases…
