We've partnered with Bustle to create a one-of-a-kind Holiday Decor 101 Quiz to help you find out where to start decorating
this season. Whether it's updating the classics or diving into some DIY projects, we’ve got you covered. Head over to Bustle to take the quiz yourself.
Fake the Great Outdoors
If you love the idea of having a real tree but could do without the sticky-sap hands and perpetual needle cleanup, consider
this creative spin on faking it. Use tree lights and jingle bell strings to outline your favorite conifer on a bare wall.
Place pine-scented candles on nearby surfaces to get all the cozy wonder of a winter forest right in your family room—zero
No Fireplace, No Problem
If hearths are in short supply in your home (apartment life, am I right?), find a clever solution to hanging stockings. Store
your hats and scarves in the closet this season because your go-to wall hooks have just been upgraded to mantel status.
For gold star DIYers, you can also hang a floating shelf on the wall as your faux mantel—and don't be shy with the garland!
One Word: Tablescape
If you live for hosting friends and family and serving them homemade peppermint bark, then focus on the most important spot
of the house: Your dining table. Ditch expected decor and opt for something as unique as your gingerbread house. Arrange
colorful jingle bells in clear glass jars for a whimsical take on a festive tabletop, and hang a few more on chairs for
a nice musical touch.
Update the Classics
You always feature classic holiday decor, but why not shake things up a little this year? That cactus collection—turn it
into a winter wonderland by covering with tinsel or Glimmer Strings(R). While you're at it, arrange decorative spheres—red
and gold mercury glass—in bowls and baskets. If you usually reach for nature-themed decor as well, consider placing some
glittery pinecones and acorns strategically throughout your home.
