The December holidays are coming quickly! It can get difficult to immerse yourself in the mood of the holidays with the weather being so warm here in Austin, TX, but one way you can do so is by decorating your home! Decorating your apartment can bring the festive mood into your house with just small simple decorative changes.

Paper Snowflakes

Adorning your apartment with paper snowflakes is probably one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to bring the holidays into your apartment. All you need is some plain white paper, scissors, tape, and clear fishing wire or string if you want to hang them. Making these snowflakes are a great activity for children or as a way to kill time on an evening in! We appreciate the helpful tips in the tutorial from The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

Log Crate Decor

This log crate idea is perfect to use as decoration in a living room space, near the front door, or anywhere else in your apartment. This idea comes from Blue Roof Cabin. To make this you’ll need a group of log, a wooden crate, springs from a pine tree (whether real or artificial), and pinecones. This decoration is perfect for setting the holiday mood despite the warmer weather and will be a great addition in your home.

Ornament Centerpiece

Display your extra holiday ornaments that you don’t have room for on the tree in a clear vase or bowl for a festive and shimmering centerpiece that requires almost no effort at all. Add a holiday ribbon to the mix like the centerpiece in the image from the site. This decoration can be a great addition to your home and a good way to make use of all the decorations that you have.

Decorating your home can be difficult, but with these suggestions, it’ll make it a little easier! If you’ve got some other decorating tips, let our Austin, TX apartment community know of them by leaving us a comment!
