Pine Cone Centerpiece
Get pine cones of different sizes and spray paint them with different shades of silver, gray and gold. Allow to dry and place them in a decorative bowl. Complete the look by adding sprigs of fresh pine and spraying the house with a nice fragrance.

Bow Tie Place Setting
Gather sets of dinner plates and matching fabric napkins. Fold the napkins into rectangular shapes and place them each on top of a dinner plate. Put silverware on top of the napkins and satin ribbons around the dinner plates. Finally use the satin ribbons to tie a ribbon at the center of the napkins. This holiday decorating tip is a favorite with many people because it creates a simple, but classic look for tables.

Gift Mirror or Picture
This is a great holiday decorating idea for your bathroom. Start by wrapping hanging mirrors in your bathroom with festive wrapping paper. Find satin ribbons that coordinate with the color of your mirror frame or bathroom wall and place them on the mirror from top to bottom and from side to side. Place a bowl in the center where the ribbons meet. Make sure the ribbons are strong enough to prevent tears.

Throw Pillows
Throw pillows can add an instant holiday touch to your living room. The trick is quite simple really. Just buy red or gold throw pillows and add them to your couch. Alternatively, tie color-coordinating ribbons around your existing throw pillows and tie in a bow at the center.
