Scented Candles – Essential holiday décor begins with candles. Candles give a room cozy ambiance in both the day and at night. Reusing jars from previous candles or other glasses around the house make great candle holders. Some favorite holiday scents include pine, cranberry, apple, fresh balsam, cinnamon, and rosemary.

Potpourri – Extra materials from around the house such as pieces of pine, bits of rosemary, and cinnamon are simple touches to add to your potpourri. Bowls and baskets are great holders and can also be universal from season to season. This also serves as a great centerpiece. Stovetop potpourri is perfect to boil before having guests over.

Wreaths– Smaller limbs of garland from the tree can make your wreaths look authentic and also be customizable to fit the rest of your homes décor. Wreathes can be hung both outside and in to make any door look merry!

Fireplaces– A fireplace is already a great décor piece to your home, so why not spice it up for the holidays! Framing garland around the fireplace and adding stockings or bulbs adds a classic touch. If you don’t have a fireplace, we love this idea of using a shelf as a mantel!

Front Porch Décor – Welcome guests with holiday spirit by decorating your porch. Keep it simple! Trying to fit too many props can be overwhelming and become cluttered. We love all of these different options especially if you aren’t hanging lights this year.

Table Runner – Textured table runners add a great focal point to your table for holiday dinners. This is also a great way to tie in the rest of your homes holiday theme to your dining room. A favorite idea is extra garland draped down the center of the table.

Whether you decide to go all out or keep it simple this holiday season, all of these DIY decorations are timeless and classic!
