4 Easy & Instant Holiday Decorations

Push the poinsettias aside; these four holiday decor ideas add unexpected charm and take minimal time and resources to create.

Above: This simple pine bough can be made by weaving together a few fresh pine branches; seen via Design Bird.

Above: Wrapping a large object with holiday string lights lends instant glimmer. Above L: A gold mirror gets an added glow, as seen on Olof Jakobina. Above R: An illuminated silvery branch, as seen on Annaleena’s Hem. To recreate the look, consider the Starry String Lights; $15 at Restoration Hardware.

Above: For a unique ornament, consider a succulent. They survive for weeks as decorations; after you take the tree down, plant them in a garden or pot, where the cuttings will hopefully take root and produce new sprouts. The above is sold at Flora Grubb in San Francisco; a single ornament is $19, three are $55.

Above: Adding a simple evergreen branch in a simple vase gives this staircase an  instant festive look; image via Hus & Hem.
