A nice holiday tip I ran across while surfing the net was to add holiday touches to items already around the house, like putting bows on figurines, etc. I think that's a great idea and will use some gratis ribbon I got to put red bows on some of mine. And then after the holidays, it's easy to clean up and store!

Someone was giving away an older lamp with a dated dried flower decoration in the glass base. I took it and unscrewed the bottom off the base and added some spare Christmas decorations in it for a festive look for the holidays.
Dress up an dining chair with a multipurpose Santa hat and decorative necklace! I took a Mardi Gras necklace, centered it on the chair and taped it into place.
I have several live philodendron potted plants. During the Christmas season I purchase several bright red silk individual artificial poinsettia flowers. I stick them in the flower pot along with the live plant.
I didn't set up my Christmas tree this year, rather I added to the decorations that I bought last year, on sale at Target, to decorate my dogwood tree in the yard.
I love decorating for Christmas with Angel Fluff (snow), you can use it anywhere and it really adds a nice wintry touch.
For some added flair when decorating the home for the holidays, hang a large sized ornament from the turn switch on a lamp. This is a great way to change up the lamp for the season.
It has been very many years now of Christmas decorating, though I still try and add something new each year. It truly brings out the Christmas spirit when you start bringing Christmas into your home.
Incorporating plants into your holiday decorating scheme is a wonderful way to bring a little bit of gardening into the season. Because the holidays can be demanding on our time and our budgets, decorating with plants that can transition from one holiday to the next makes good sense.
How about decorating along a theme this Christmas? Spice up your decorating projects for this Holiday season by using a theme.
These are quick and easy to make. You should be able to make quite a few while you watch TV. It is also easy enough for older kids to make them.
An idea for Christmas decorating is to use wrapping to wrap framed art work you no longer want or are tired of. Put a nice bow on it for a finished look and hang on the wall. At the end of the holiday, pack it away with your other holiday items.
The first decoration I always put out right after Thanksgiving is the nativity set. Mine is Precious Moments and made of porcelain so it goes on the server, not under the tree.
Glue mirrored tiles to ornament hangers or pieces of ribbon, then hang from your Christmas tree for a beautiful and sparkly look. You could get by with using less lights due to the reflection these tiles will produce.

I have a lot of stuffed Easter bunnies and would like ideas on changing them into Christmas bunnies to donate to the church for Christmas gifts. I removed the cloth Easter basket from their paws and the ribbon from their necks. What could I replace these with?
My first thought would be to add silk poinsetta in their hand or silk holly or even a very small candy cane. You can always combine red and green ribbon to replace the ribbon that was originally on the bunny. Also sometimes at the dollar stores you can find a package of small santa hats.
Hope this helps.
I like the Santa hats too, you could cut slashes out to slide the ears through, also they could hold those tiny red stockings just hot glue there hands to each one and put tiny candy canes inside and put little wrapped boxes in the hands too or in the stocking.
Maybe even just take some red wide silk ribbon and sew little bells around it for there necks and put a red pom pom on the nose like he is Rudolph.
