With the holidays upon us I’ve been thinking a lot about decorations.  From now till Christmas I will be posting some of my online favorite finds. I’ll do my darndest to give you links to instructions whenever I can. (Sorry, not all of these come with instructions but they look easy to duplicate.)

Garlands! Possibly the easiest way to make a regular old room into a festive retreat. Here are a few gems I’m thinking of testing out. Making your home more festive doesn’t need to be time-consuming or costly. A trip to the dollar store and a strand of lights are all you need.

Try mixing in metallic or coloured doilies to make your garland more lively or to match your holiday colour scheme. What, you don’t have a colour scheme? Let me tell you, it’s a handy thing to have.
