It doesn’t have to cost much and you may be able to make use of things around the house. Following are some last minute Christmas decorating ideas.

Candles and vases used every day can become simple, classy and festive Christmas decorations. Groupings of candles or votive candles make a great addition to the table, side table or mantle. Fill glass vases with Christmas ornaments for an instant festive decoration.

You most likely have some decorating tools where you would least expect. Scarves can be used as an instant tree skirt. Mittens can be hung by clothespins to string or ribbon and used as garland for the tree, stair rail or mantle. Cinnamon or candy sticks can be grouped together in a bowl or vase to add a Christmas touch to any room. Another idea is to tie together all of your family Christmas cards with photos and hang them from the mantle or on a wall to bring back memories of Christmases past.
