Festive Christmas Lanterns

Decorating your home for Christmas?

Since it can be a costly time of year, I appreciate economical decorating ideas. Inspired by what we saw on Pinterest, an inexpensive way to add a dash of Christmas to your home is to simply add a ribbon and/or greens to your year-round items. Attaching a pretty ribbon and a touch of greens to these lanterns does the trick!

Though I prefer real greenery, that is not always possible. I love some of the “convincing” greenery out there! We like to get the nice garlands that Michael’s carries this time of year. The “needles” are VERY realistic looking. I also like not having to deal with the mess from fresh greens and not having to change the yucky-smelling water!

Christmas balls placed in a lantern, in a bowl, or in a basket is also a cost-effective way to spread happiness around your home!
