Are you starting to think about decorating for the holidays? Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so now’s a great time to start planning what you might do for decorations. From your windows to your doors to outside your house, at Georgia Blinds & Interiors, we’ve got a few simple, inexpensive, and festive ideas for decorating your home.
Inside the House
You can add some accents to your window fashions by sprucing up the window itself. Head to the craft store for holiday-themed sponge shapes and some acrylic craft paint. Add a teaspoon of liquid dish soap to the paint, apply it to one of the sponges, and sponge your decoration onto the glass. The dish soap will make cleanup easier once the season is done.
You can decorate your doorframes as well. Add swag in the form of a string of pinecones (you can get them from a garden center or the craft store). Tie a bow to the middle of the string so you can center it on the doorway. Festive!
Wrap some of your framed artwork to look like gifts hung on the wall. Go nuts with ribbons and bows if you’d like. Just be sure to pinpoint the art you’d like to wrap—choose a pattern, such as only the pieces seen from outside or those that are in the entryway.
Adorn your mantle with sparkly snowflakes by attaching them to fishing line and tacking the line to above the mantle. This will draw attention to your current mantel decorations and add to the holiday atmosphere.
Outside the House
Use your summertime hanging pots for added outside flair this winter. Line each pot with decorative evergreen, and then fill them the rest of the way with pinecones, oversized plastic snowflakes, or whatever decoration suits your style. You could even decorate your wire hanging baskets with spray paint and glitter. Hang your finished decorations on your porch, from a shepherd’s rod, or from trees.
