Looking for lazy holiday decor ideas? Or maybe you want easy Christmas decorations? Me, too! Click through for Christmas decoration ideas that are cheap, easy, and use things you have around the house!
While I love a warm, well-decorated home I am so really lazy.Or, more accurately, I hate storing things I only use once a year.
I don’t want Christmas wreaths monopolizing valuable closet space that might be better used to house my collection of cat costumes and/or riding boots.But I also think it’s really lovely to add a bit of cheer to my home around the holidays.But I hate those red and green Rubbermaid containers.

A rock and a hard place, amiright? As such, I’ve put together some lovely ideas for those of us who are (marginally) festive, but don’t want to store holiday decorations.  Or maybe (like me) you’re just lazy.

Or, you could just buy this ornament and hang it on a stick you found in the parking lot.

Great ideas! I'm not really into holiday decor anymore but my 3 year old daughter was asking repeatedly for a tree. I was prepared to go buy one but then on our daily walk she found a stick and told me it was the prefect tree. Took it home and let her decorate. Called it done.

My calamondin is finally big enough this year to hold a few paper ornaments and fuzzy ball garland. I don't dare put hot little lightbulbs on him though. He's looking pretty tacky, actually.

What beautiful ideas! I love this because – even though I like Christmas decorations a little more than it sounds like you do – I live in a very small apartment with very little storage space. In an effort to not have clutter, I don't like keeping decorations that are only out for a month. I'm trying my hand at creating some "wintery" decor instead that I can leave up until spring arrives. More months of use = more worthwhile to store.

We are TOTALLY doing stuff like this for our holiday season this year b/c we have moved abroad and did not bring anything Christmas-y. I bought a can of silver spray paint and have sprayed branches, pinecones and pretty much anything you can think of from our autumn hikes, put up a few twinkle lights and called it done. I'm saving all my Christmas ornament money for travel! 🙂
