Pretty Pinecones: Dip pinecones in gold paint (either partially or all of the way) or use a mixture of water, glue, and glitter for a sparkling effect. Place on side tables or use to fill baskets and bowls.

Christmas “Spirits”: Stick candles in clean, empty wine bottles for a dramatic display of warm, holiday light.

Dream of Sugarplums: For a fast, sweet decoration, put out bowls of holiday candy in pretty stemmed glassware.

Tie It Up:  Tie a bow around your throw pillows with holiday-colored ribbons, and they’ll look just like Christmas gifts. Add a rhinestone pin for an extra decorating kick.

Add Some Swagger: Make a hanging banner or swag out of Christmas cards in minutes – drape cards over a long strand of twine or ribbon. Then tack the two ends to the front corners of your mantel, across a doorway or down a long hallway.
