Now that the holidays are upon us, many stress on how to decorate their home.  Everyone wants something a little unique and creative without spending tons of money or tons of time.  Here are a few quick ideas that won’t break the bank or your schedule.

1.      Find a hurricane lamp and add some silver and gold balls.  Use different sizes for interest.  If you don’t have any laying around, why not add some ornaments.  Since most of us buy more after the holidays, simply add them to the container.  If you don’t have a hurricane handy, use a glass or crystal bowl.

2.      Usually used for a wreath on the door, try taking a styrofoam wreath and add some metalllac paint.  Take some artificial holly and berries  and hot glue to the wreath.  Use your imagination and have fun.  Add some small ornaments and you’ve got a great decoration.  Try adding a candle in the middle for a different look.

3.      Fireplace mantles are a great place to decorate.  Another area where you don’t need to spend a fortune.  Simply add garland to the mantle and tack down for safety.  Find holiday pilar candles and place on the mantle. Add a few stockings and you’re finished.

These are just a few simple ideas to get you started.  A few more are on the way in the coming weeks.  And of course, I’m always interested in what you like to use in your holiday decorating.
