 The holidays are meant to be a time to enjoy precious moments spent with family and friends, but all too often we find ourselves rushing to decorate our homes perfectly. The good news is a few garlands of evergreens, a colorful wreath in the window, or an arrangement of simple votives flickering on the mantel can create an abundance of cheer. Here are some quick and easy ways to make your home festive. Here, a glass vase brims with colorful glass balls for a glittering centerpiece.

#8. Deck Out That Bench 

Put a bench to work in the off-season: Give it holiday spirit with an arrangement of holiday greenery, pinecones, gazing balls, and ornaments. Look around your garden for small spaces to stage a winter display. A basket of pinecones with cut boxwood will not only dress up an empty bench, but will also help you complete your gardening chores for the season.
