Your holiday to-do list is filling up fast. And while your holiday home décor is one of your top priorities, you might feel like you’re running out of time to deck the halls. Small and simple touches are the solution! Try these eight easy, creative décor ideas to spruce up your home and bring the holiday spirit into every room.
1. Cozier Couch
Give your couch a holiday makeover: Cover your existing throw pillows with decorative covers, or drape a throw with a wintery scene over the back of the couch. Then clean away odors on hard-to-wash items and leave a light, fresh scent with a spritz of Febreze FABRIC.
2. Glittering Centerpiece
Glass tree ornaments can double as a fun and inexpensive centerpiece for your dining room table. To avoid a cluttered look, choose a two-color palette (red and gold, green and silver, or even teal and fuchsia), and place similar-sized bulbs in a large bowl or platter.
3. Fragrant Garland
A garland made from pine, holly or ivy cuttings will bring a bit of the outdoors to your fireplace. First, dust the mantel with a Swiffer 360 Duster to remove any dust, and then position the greenery on top. Accent the garland with small pinecones, silk poinsettia blooms or a few ornaments – secure them with floral wire so they don’t fall off the mantel. For a finishing touch, weave candy-cane-striped or sparkly ribbon through the garland.
4. Festive Linens
Bring the holiday spirit into every room with cheerful towels and table linens. In the kitchen, use holiday-themed dishtowels and a matching tablecloth, or hang red and green hand towels in the bathroom. To make the bedrooms and guestroom cozier, replace everyday bed sheets with snuggly flannel ones in seasonal colors or patterns. When it’s time to do the wash, keep your colors looking bright and your sheets feeling soft with Tide PODS Plus Downy. Avoid wrinkles and static by adding a Bounce dryer sheet to the dry cycle.
5. Twinkling Lights
For a touch of whimsy, place string lights in unexpected places throughout your home. Outline a doorway with a strand of fairy lights, wrap a strand around a bannister or bundle a strand or two together and place in a glass bowl.
6. Jingle Bells
Attach colorful, oversized sleigh bells to varying lengths of ribbon, and attach them to the front door with a cheery bow to welcome guests.
7. DIY Holiday Wreath
If you’re looking for a fun DIY project, try transforming a simple pinecone or pine greenery wreath into a dashing focal point for your entranceway. Adorn it with mini tree ornaments or candy canes (use hot glue or floral wire to secure), or wrap ribbon, tinsel or strands of artificial berries around the entire wreath.
8. Dressed-Up Windows
Ornaments aren’t just for trees! Feature some of your favorites by hanging them in the windows. Thread them with varying lengths of thin ribbon, and tie them to the curtain rods. As a finishing touch, place a Febreze Candle in a festive scent in each windowsill to fill your home with the aroma of cranberries or fresh-cut pine.
