There are two types of holiday wreaths: real and artificial. Real ones cost more and can spread the Christmas smell of pine throughout your house. But an artificial wreath can do the job as well. They may not have the smell of the real ones, but they look festive nonetheless! You can add spice to those wreaths by tying or glueing small bundles of Christmas scented potpourri to them.
Did you know that you can create Christmas decorations on the windows by using acrylic paint mixed with a small amount of dish soap? It is an inexpensive way to create multiple decorations on your windows and can be washed off once the holidays are over.
Ask your children to give you a hand in creating some Christmas decorations. Not only will this be a fun Christmas experience for your family, it will also add sentimental value to your Christmas tree decorations.
Place bows at as many places as you can think of - your doors, windows, stairs, gardens, etc. The advantage of using bows as Christmas decorations is that you can save and use them year after year.
