Christmas is knocking on our door and some of us have presentations to complete before we get our battered and hammered self-home on Christmas Eve, and obviously, too tired to begin, we leave all hopes of having a home that brims with Christmas spirit. Here are a few super-simple, easy last-minute Christmas decorating ideas that'll effortlessly bring in the Christmas cheer.
1. Catch Them Unexpected
Tie ribbons or Christmas-themed ornaments in unexpected places to intensify the holiday feel. Back of chairs, vases, doorknobs, candlesticks, mirrors, curtain rods, fish bowl--yes, you can go on! Pick up plastic candy canes from your local store, add a twine or two or go all out with
Christmas-ey fabric hearts.
2. Wrap A Pillow
Give an ordinary pillow a Christmas update with holiday-themed ribbons or silk scarves. Simply wrap it around the pillow as you would a package or a gift and secure it with a pin. You can hand-stitch a bow on top too and add Christmas bells to it!
3. Lined Candle Jars
It's all in the details. Line your large glass candle jars with dried slices of oranges for a fresh, Christmas-y aroma as well as a welcome pop of orange in a sea of green and red. It'll make a small but mighty difference, and it only takes a few minutes.
4. Coffee Filter Garland
You really can use anything to make pretty DIY Christmas decorations if you know where to look. This mock floral garland is made out of coffee filters. If you don't have any of those lying around, use tissue paper and make an afternoon of it.
5. Chalk Pen Galvanized Buckets
Stuff galvanized flower buckets with fresh pine, draw on a festive message, and light it all up with twinkly lights!
6. Popsicle Stick Snowflakes
Simply arrange, glue, and spray paint Popsicle sticks for a snowy indoor wall scene. Or use pipe cleaners and turn them into coasters.
7. Spoon Mini Trees
Arranging spoons in a proper manner can give rise to this type of an element. It can be a mini version of a Christmas tree.
