Decorating Your Home for the Holidays
September 26, 2017
It's getting a bit chillier outside, and with the change in weather comes a thrill about decorating for the upcoming holidays. From Halloween to Thanksgiving and even the winter holidays, the end of summer doesn't mean the end of fun for the year. Here are just a few tips for decorating your home for the holidays.
- Visit a local pumpkin patch and pick your own pumpkins to display near your front door. While you could always dart out to the grocery store to find the same pumpkins, it's more fun to do the work yourself!
- Create your own wreath by picking up a styrofoam wreath mold at your local craft store. Then, attach your favorite fall leaves, pinecones and miniature pumpkins to it for the fall, and switch them out for evergreen branches and cranberries for the winter.
- Make things spooky with a few Halloween-inspired decorations. Add some floating bats around your door by cutting bat shapes out of black construction paper, string some store-bought spider webs around your entryway and be sure to carve a jack-o-lantern for a throwback decoration that's lots of fun to make.
- If you're hosting Thanksgiving at your home this year, you want to make sure you have some fun decorations to welcome your guests when they arrive. Add a cornocopia filled with seasonal fruits and gourds, plant some hearty mums in pots around your entryway and even place some lanterns with flickering faux candles inside.
- Adding a banner is a creative and retro way to decorate for any holiday throughout the year. Make your own penant banner with triangular flags in seasonal colors, or cut letters out of sturdy paper to display a holiday message.
