Think outside the box when envisioning your holiday decorating…

Collect eucalyptus branches or other greenery fresh from your yard + other holiday decorating tips from David Brian Sanders | Ty Pennington

Garland doesn’t have to be the traditional swag.  Reimagine your trimmings in a modern way. Collect eucalyptus branches or other greenery fresh from your yard. The silvery green you gather with a grouping of gold ornaments, candles and pomegranates makes for an unexpected holiday centerpiece.

Switch out your everyday throw pillows for a collection of plaids.  Add a thick knit throw and your guests will want to curl up by your fireplace with a spiced cider for the rest of the winter.

Repurpose your existing candles in your favorite winter scents by giving them a holiday make-over.  Put plain candles into a glass cylinder and wrap them in an iridescent paper. Adorn with raffia or twine wrapped around several times and finished in a simple knot with ends frayed.  Try adding a sprig of fresh holly or mistletoe.  Group your candles on the fireplace to add mood and sparkle.

Don’t leave your front door exposed to the elements without a bit of holiday cheer.  A wreath on your door welcomes guests and adds festivity to the whole neighborhood.

If wreaths aren’t your style, hang a vessel on the door and fill it with wrapped homemade peppermint bark or other holiday candies and treats.  Your friends and neighbors will delight in this surprising welcome.
