I hear all the time from people that they don’t like
decorating for the holidays for a variety of reasons.
Here are my tips to make decorating your home a little more enjoyable!
Do You Feel Like Christmas Equals Chaos and Clutter?
I HATE clutter so I will admit that adding too
much Christmas decor to my home is a bit stressful
for me. I’m a minimalist and I keep that
principle throughout the holidays.
The key to this is to EDIT before you pull out your holiday decor.
Edit out decor items you aren’t attached to
and replace them with Christmas decor
versus ADDING to the already fully styled room.
On a Budget?
Grab decor from your yard.
This way you won’t have to spend a ton of cash on something
you don’t particularly enjoy.
Use Pine cones, Branches, Leaves or
anything else you can find. You can leave it
natural or spray paint them the perfect
colour for your decor.
Clean Up Well
The most important tip of all!!!!
Put your Decor away in an orderly way.
This will take away the stress of opening the
Christmas decor box to find complete chaos.
It will start the decorating season out much more happily!
Label Storage Boxes With Detail
Keep like items together in the same
Storage Box – String Lights, Ribbon,
Ornaments, Outdoor & Indoor,
Stockings + Stocking Hangers…
Use a Small Caddy for supplies like
Ornament hangers, scissors, adhesive putty,
wire, zip ties, extension cords etc.
Basically if you used it for any reason the
previous year include it in your supplies box.
I hope that even if decorating your home for the
holiday’s isn’t your favourite task you find the joy in it!
