Cheap & Simple Table Decor

You can also add berry picks, pinecones, and evergreens. Create a whole tablescape by adding a holiday runner, some simple candlesticks and everyday white plates.

Mix in Christmas Themed Pillows

Bring Simple Decor to the Kitchen

Use a few decorations and colors to keep the room looking festive. Start with a kitchen island centerpiece such as a festive wreath, a few Christmas candles, or some sprigs of evergreen. Hang a few garlands from the walls or window frames. Add a few strands of Christmas lights around the room for a bit of extra sparkle. Finally, top off the look with a few Christmas-themed kitchen towels, oven mitts, or a plaid table runner.

Swags can be hung in any room, from the kitchen to the living room, and even outside with the right materials.

Decor for Your Tree

One key to simple Christmas decor is to let your tree speak for itself. You can select a few special decorations to place on the tree, such as ornaments and ribbons, but try not to overdo it. Instead of going crazy with decorations, use the tree and its beautiful sparkling lights as the focal point and accessorize it with natural elements, like pinecones and berries, or simple decorations like garland and bows.

If you want to get even more creative, why not make a light garland to hang around the mantel or stairs?

Decorate with Wreaths

Hang a wreath on your front door to welcome guests or place one on a wall or window to add a cozy touch to your living space. Wreaths made with fresh pine and holly, or ones adorned with lights, baubles, and other decorations, are sure to bring the Christmas spirit into your home.
