Paper cutouts of Christmas trees hang in each individual cell, alternating colors.

Fuzzy felt mittens lend a hand to the cold-weather theme, as do snowmen, snowflakes, and ice skates, all in a crisp blue-and-white palette. On the stairs, another sprinkling of snowflakes and a pair of vintage ice skates spruce up a simple, rambling garland. Below the tree, a glittering Christmas village atop faux sheepskin rugs makes for a cool alternative to the standard gift display.
Fresh garlands are gorgeous, but customize yours to give it a touch of fun and to ensure it fits in with the existing environment. Grab some construction paper in vibrant colors and then cut out some seasonal shapes (like these triangle trees). Then glue them together and hang them from your garland. To make it all match, tie a ribbon in a corresponding color around the end of the banister.
A tree trimmed in traditional red and green emphatically says "Christmas" with top-to-bottom vintage letters. These letters culled from old signs, printers' type, and alphabet teaching aids punctuate this tree. Arrange them to make a statement, and spell out holiday words such as "Ho Ho Ho" and "Holly." Throw in silver starbursts, baubles, and tinsel garland for a stylish '50s aura.
There’s nothing like last minute plans that are sprung upon you out of nowhere — especially if you’re the one who ends up having to host. Whether it’s because of canceled plans, a family emergency, or the other side of the family coming to town, sometimes these are things you can’t avoid. Regardless of the reason, and with no time to spare, there are a few things that must be done, decoration-wise, to usher in the holiday spirit. If you’re not the “festive” type or just didn’t have time for it this year, there are certainly some contingency plans that are available on the cheap. You don’t necessarily have to shell out the big bucks to buy an animatronic Santa Claus or a porcelain Nativity Scene display, but sprucing up the place for some additional Yuletide cheer is kind of a must. Luckily, there are plenty of great indoor decorations for the holiday season that are both cheap and aesthetically pleasing. Heck, they don’t even have to be for Christmas — they can serve as a wintery reminder or as a way to ring in the new year. So let’s look at some of the best indoor decorations just in time for the holiday season. You know what they say: better late than never.
Adorned with jingle bells, red jute webbing runs down the length of the tree. Burlap poinsettias add a decorative touch, and a seven-point star hand-crafted from vintage sheet music hits an especially high note. Antique sleds are a practically sized sub-in for a one-horse open sleigh. Tip: Assign each family member a sled, and pile on gifts accordingly.
If your favorite part of Christmas is the abundance of candy canes, then this Christmas front door decoration is right up your alley. Hang two large outdoor candy canes on either side of your door, the hooked parts facing in opposite directions. If the candy canes you pick up don’t have enough sparkle for your liking, then add some glitter spray, which can easily be found at any craft store. To really give this look some pizazz, loop some candy cane print ribbon around a wreath, finishing off your unique DIY christmas decoration with some metallic green and red bulbs.
