Fun, festive and affordable
One of my favourite holiday decorating tips is to use common objects from around the house. The challenge of finding suitable items and using them creatively is what makes it fun. This year, I’m loving the simplicity of red and white and decided to decorate the dining room sideboard in this colour palette.

I started by filling a set of mason jars with objects found around the house - red and white candy, white pompoms, and red beads. Then I decorated some plain white plates from a dollar store using a red Sharpie to draw simple Christmas designs and holiday text. Finally, I used twine and cardboard to make rustic letters that spell 'JOY'. That’s it - our sideboard decorated with things from around the house. Simple, affordable, fun, and festive! - Grace.
