Change up your holiday decorating on a dime

While there is something to be said for tradition, changing up your holiday decor can be fun! If the thought of spending too much money on decorations has been holding you back, here are some fun, pocket-friendly ideas for decorating your cottage! "Nothing says winter like a fresh evergreen wreath and a festive ribbon hung on the front door. Make it personal with pinecones, colored bulbs, a string of cranberries, even a single strand of battery-operated mini-lights." Just one lightbulb can make a huge difference! Try trading your porch light for a fun color like green or red! The mantle is a great place for decorating. Add some candles and evergreen touches for instant holiday spirit!
