Need to do some last-minute decorating today for the holidays?
Never fear: There is still time to change your home from bah-humbug to merry and bright. Here are several festive fixes you can do in minutes.
1. Hang a wreath or swag.
If you only have seconds to decorate, hang a pretty holiday wreath or swag. Nothing is simpler than this holiday mainstay.
2. Spark up a window.
Dangle a darling holiday decoration from the window sash in one of your common rooms. It could be an ordinary item, such as a little vase filled with bits of evergreen snipped from your garden. Or it could be a lovely holiday decoration, like a wreath or lantern.
3. Spotlight a pretty package.
Raid items from under the Christmas tree, picking out the prettiest packages for your décor. Place a small parcel on a silver tray, then cover it with a glass cloche. Under a bell jar, everything looks majestic.
