42 Quick and Easy Holiday Decorating Ideas

Way back when I was a kid, people put up their tree, some lights outside, a few decorative pieces around the house & that was about it for the decorations. Now, we like to add Holiday cheer to every room in our house. Even if it is just a bi, we still enjoy adding SOMETHING. Unfortunately, this can be expensive, sometimes VERY expensive.

Wait, not so fast! You can still display decorations all over the house without the expense when you take a page from Midwest Living… or simply visit their site! Midwest Living has a large list of easy & inexpensive ways to decorate your home this Christmas! These little trees are just one example. So cute & colorful & easy to make, you may add them to every room in your house! Hmmm, not a bad idea!

Holiday-Inspired Outdoor Decorating that Lasts

Many of us like to decorate early in the season for Christmas. The problem then is: how do I make sure my decorations last that long? No one wants a wreath that begins to droop before Christmas. Or a display that just begins to look tired & worn a week or so later. We want our home to look as fresh & beautiful the last day as it does the first. BHG shares a selection of outdoor displays that stay fresh looking throughout the season. Give your guests a warm welcome this Holiday with these beautiful, and lasting, ideas!
