Santa Claus is coming to town, but is your home ready for a visit from jolly old St. Nick?
It’s difficult to get into the holiday spirit when your home is drearier than cheery, but accenting ordinary spaces with festive accents can really brighten things up.
Read on to learn how you can turn up the holiday cheer with a few simple do-it-yourself additions.
Put a Bow on It
Bows aren’t just for wrapping presents. They’re also an easy way to decorate your home for the holidays.
Add a bow to the wreath on your front door and use smaller ones to jazz up lamp posts, candlesticks, vases and other accessories.
Consider using burlap ribbon mixed with red and green buffalo check for a trendy farmhouse chic bow, or use shiny curling ribbon for an extra festive look.
Mix up your ribbon colors and widths to add visual interest!
Deck the Windows
There are more ways to decorate your windows for the holidays than just a can of fake snow. (Although spraying some on your windows for a frozen look adds to the winter feel!)
If you have white blinds, weave a red ribbon in between each slat to create fun candy cane stripes. If you prefer your windows bare, use a curtain rod to hang glass or plastic ornaments from ribbons.
