Love decorating for the holidays, but tired of the same old decor you've been using for years? We feel that. It's easy to get into a decorating rut when you're so used to styling your decorations in one way, you've forgotten how to be creative with what you have.
Instead of feeling the pressure to spend on new frills for an entirely different look, get inspired by these easy and simple ways to give last year's decor a much needed facelift.
Instead of a classic pinecone and garland centerpiece...
... try using spare ornaments on a serving platter to decorate your table.
Skip the tree skirt...
... and try placing the base of your tree in a basket instead.
Instead of hanging your wreath on your front door...
... hang it inside on your shelves to switch things up.
Don't have a big bar cart to style for a holiday party?
Display your alcohol on a tray.
Instead of putting all of your ornaments on the tree...
... spare a few for DIY holiday scenes.
No fireplace to hang stockings?

Over the classic red, green and white color scheme?
