When Thanksgiving ends and Black Friday is over, it’s time to start decorating for Christmas! Sometimes that
can be an overwhelming task. So here are some ideas for using your fall
and Thanksgiving decorations to get a jumpstart on your Christmas
decorations without spending too much money right away.
First, you definitely have to get your Christmas tree whether you pull your artificial tree down from the attic, or go
out and pick up a Frasier fir, get your tree set up in the right place.
Then start by taking any pine cones and fall leaves you have lying
around your house from your fall decorations and begin to stick them in
and around your tree limbs. For an added touch roll your pine cones in a
little glue then in some glitter to jazz them up a bit. You can even
sprinkle some glitter over your leaves.
Once you’ve found the best Christmas gifts for your family you can go ahead and start placing
them under the tree even before you finish the decorations. It will add a
spark of excitement to the whole room.
Next, take your pumpkin decorations and cover them with red or green fabric. Simply hot glue the fabric pulled tightly
around the pumpkin or tie it off at the top with gold or silver ribbon.
Now you have ornament décor that just needs a little decoration! Add
glitter, ribbon, rhinestones, etc. to your new ornaments. Place the
ornaments on the center of your coffee table, as a centerpiece on your
dining table, on your mantle or if they are large enough you can set
them outside by your front door.
Finally, if you have any Thanksgiving décor that has small red berries inside, take those pieces and pull them through a
wreath. Add a bow and you’re ready to attach it to the front of your
This should help you get a quick jumpstart on your Christmas decorations without having to spend money right off the top.
