Bedroom ~ Temporarily transform your bed. We layered holiday-theme hand towels on our headboard. Red-striped napkins and place mats work as “covers” for pillows. Attach with safety pins or basting stitches to remove later.
Outside ~ Fresh greenery, a large red ball, red-painted pinecones and a bright bow look festive in this wintry scene.
Hallway ~ A pint-size dwarf Alberta spruce gives a candle sconce new holiday style. Remove soil and bind the roots in damp cheesecloth to fit into the candle hole. Tie a holiday-hue ribbon at the base.
Dining Room ~ A use-what-you-have philosophy inspired a creamer “vase” hung from a chandelier.
Kitchen ~ Filled with peppermint candies, inexpensive glasses make quick centerpieces, decorations or party favors. Tie a coordinating ribbon around the stems for an added festive touch.
Family Room ~ Switch out art in existing frames, or buy inexpensive shadow boxes and/or frames with mats. Cut new backgrounds out of burlap or colored paper, then use hot glue to mount twigs or varied evergreen sprigs for art naturally themed to the season.
