For an entrance that stands out from your neighbor's how about hanging pinecones on your front door instead of a wreath?
Using past holiday cards to create a garland or an advent calendar that doubles as garland?
Placing your tree in a tub or basket and doing away with a tree skirt? I would so do this if we had a real tree.
Or using something other than an angel or a star on the top of your tree, maybe some large bells.
Decorating your holiday home so it represents you will make your holiday just that much more special and fun. Your pieces might just be great conversation starters during gatherings and bring up old stories from years past or make new stories!
Check back each day for more holiday inspiration and projects! The fun will lead up to a big Cookie Recipe Exchange linky party on the 7th!
