Create an inviting entrance using greenery. You can swag it over your front door or hang greenery from your knob for sweet, unexpected touch.


2. Create a Festive Fireplace

Decorate your mantle using garland and incorporate lots of candles. To be extra safe, you can use battery-operated candles instead of real burning candles.


3. Re-Think Your Ornaments
