Decorating Your Home: Simple and Inviting
I really enjoy decorating for the holidays! I also like to find things that are inexpensive or free to make our home a little more festive during the fall and winter holidays.
One thing I have done for a few years is to go to the local pumpkin patches at the end of Halloween and ask if they have gourds and cornstalks they are getting rid of. Most corn maze farms no longer use them after the end of October and the pumpkins, cornstalks and other vegetables just rot away for not being cared for. This is a great time to get some fall decorations!
As for winter decorations, consider what you might find at the local Goodwill or other second hand store. We have found unopened packages of clear glass ball ornaments that we have used inside the house to decorate with paint or photos on the inside.
Also, look for wreaths that you can add inexpensive greenery and ornaments to.
