Decorating for the holidays doesn’t need to be a huge ordeal or an expensive one. Bring the spirit of the holidays into your Tacoma, Washington apartment with some simple and affordable decorations. Read on for some decorating suggestions from the Nantucket Gate Blog.


Paper Snowflakes

Making paper snowflakes is a fun childhood holiday activity, but it can also be a great way to decorate your apartment for the holidays without spending much (if any) money. Tape your paper snowflakes to your windows and hang them from the ceiling or doorways with some tape and clear fishing wire. If it’s been awhile and you need a refresher on how to make paper snowflakes, read this tutorial from First Palette.


Miniature Forest

Use green cardstock to make a mini evergreen forest to set on your mantle. Cut the cardstock into various sized circles and then fold the papers accordion-style and layer them on top of each other. Use glue to hold them together. Make tree trunk bases from small wooden dowels or old corks. To get an idea of what the final product should look like, check out this image from HGTV.

Gift Bow Wreath

Use a styrofoam wreath form, holiday gift bows, and some hot glue to make a lovely gift bow wreath to hang on your front door or anywhere in your apartment. Check out this example (the 10th photo) from Woman’s Day. Or you could also make a festive wrapping paper wreath like this one from Centsational Style.
