Simple Holiday Decor

Now that your Thanksgiving dinner has been eaten, the dishes have been washed, and the leftovers consumed (or at least put away for the future), it is time to start thinking about holiday decor. Some people go all-out and cover the entire front of their houses with lights, before completing the scheme with light-up inflatable snowmen, Santa Claus’ and Disney characters. However, holiday decorating does not need to be so complex. Sometime the simplest things can look just as festive, yet require much less time to put up. Take these, for example:

1) Hang a wreath on the door. A simple holiday wreath, whether a pine bough one with a red velvet bough or a wooden model made from thin branches and covered in pine cones, can bring a cheerful holiday look to the outside of your house. The best part? It will take literally minutes to hang.

2) Decorate a holiday tree. Placing a holiday tree right in front of your living room window and then covering it with lights and brightly colored ornaments makes a simple holiday statement. It will take anywhere from a half hour to several to position all of the lights and ornaments just right, but that is all of the holiday decorating that you need to do!

3) Hang a few strings of Christmas lights. Rather than going overboard and covering your entire house, just hang a string or two of lights in a window. Or, if you want the front of your house to look balanced, hang lights on the inside of your front windows. Lighting them will brighten up your house and put you and your loved ones in a holiday mood!
