I think just the words “Christmas decorations” can give some people a minor heart attack. Their minds instantly go to wrestling 30’ ladders for stringing lights and lugging heavy boxes of ornaments down from the attic. During this busy time of year, we have too much going on to worry about spending countless hours trying to find the one burned out light bulb on the strand.
Our advice? Keep the decor classic and simple. Stick to natural elements like leftover cut evergreen limbs, branches of holly, pine cones, and cranberries. These festive materials will make your home look cheery and bright without over-doing it. Plus, you are likely to have most of these items right in your own backyard!
