Bring the spirit of the season into your home with these creative and easy last-minute holiday decorating ideas!
Add a festive wreath to your door.
Wreaths make great front door decorations as well as in home décor. We also just happen to see them more often during the holidays. They are just one adornment you can use to welcome your family and guests into your homes this season.
This Santa Claus wreath from 1800flowers.com isn’t just a wreath with Santa Claus in the center, it also includes LED lights that make it truly unique for this time of year. Splender members also get 15% cash back and free shipping when you sign up for their Celebrations Passport.
Instead of a traditional evergreen wreath, you might also try your hand at a homemade wreath of citrus fruits. By taking advantage of the winter citrus season, you can incorporate your favorite fruits into a wreath that you can keep up even up even after the holidays are over!
To start, you’ll need a wreath frame in your desired size, greenery such as eucalyptus, floral wire and floral clippers. And finally, bring a little color to the cold and dreary season with oranges, kumquats or lemons. This DIY holiday décor idea is easy, fun and smells delicious (seriously, it’s like an all-natural room freshener)!
Add a seasonal front door mat.
The holidays are a time for celebration and gatherings of friends and family. A holiday door mat is a simple way to make a great first impression on your holiday guests. A cheerful hand-woven door mat like this one from Overstock.com (4% cash back) is the perfect thing to show them just how welcome they are. The holly design on this mat will pair perfectly with a matching wreath such as the above-mentioned Santa wreath on your front door.
Hang some stockings on your fireplace or stairwell.
The legend of the holiday stocking goes as far back as the 1800’s. Ever since, children have been placing stockings by the fireplace for Santa Claus to fill with gifts on Christmas Eve.
There aren’t many better ways to show you’re ready for the holidays than with holiday stockings of your own. This Needlepoint Christmas Stocking from Lands’ End (7% cash back) includes free personalization. Plus, when you buy three or more, you also save $3 off each stocking, and all orders over $50 include free shipping.
If you don’t have a fireplace or mantel to hang your stockings with care, try hanging them along the staircase or create a DIY holiday décor piece on an empty wall with Command Hooks from Walmart.com (2% cash back) and a joyful garland.
Decorate with poinsettias.
Poinsettias are associated with the holidays, but you may not know that they originated from Mexico and were introduced to the United States in 1828. They gradually caught on with the holiday spirit and are a festive staple today.
Poinsettias aren’t limited to red—you can find them in an array of colors from ivory to pink to burgundy and even two-toned marble shades. There are also variety of ways to use them. For example, you can create wreaths, vignettes, garlands and even bows for gifts.
This Holiday Poinsettia Basket from Flowers by Florists.com (8% cash back) is just $38.99 and when you spend $49.99 or more, you can receive $10 off your order. These lush poinsettias can act as the perfect table centerpiece or be used to fill the gaps around your fireplace.
And remember, poinsettias last year round and look beautiful in all seasons! Here are some tips to preserve your poinsettia plants for the entire year.
The holiday shopping season is certainly in full swing and it’s not too late to add the last few decorative touches to your home. Plus, we don’t know about you, but decorating always gets us into the holiday spirit (and saving money is pretty great, too!)
