10 hol­i­day dec­o­rat­ing tips from the ex­perts

USA TODAY International Edition - - MONEY -

Place LED lights into empty glass jars you have around the house. Cre­ate Christ­mas vi­gnettes by group­ing ob­jects that will bring hol­i­day cheer to ar­eas of your home, such as small or­na­ments and hol­i­day figurines. Spray paint pine cones and branches and group them in win­dow sills or the cen­ter of the ta­ble. Use fairy lights in­stead of tra­di­tional Christ­mas tree lights. Hang or­na­ments on places other than the Christ­mas tree, such as on pic­ture frames and Christ­mas wreaths. Adorn a vase with pine cones and twigs. Don’t be afraid to bun­dle or­na­ments on the tree. Use wire to string them to­gether. String pine cones to­gether us­ing twine or strips of an old flan­nel shirt for rus­tic gar­land. Re­place stan­dard light­bulbs in your home with col­or­ful ones. Use col­ored tape to candy-stripe ta­ble and chair legs.
