Holiday Decorating Mistake to Avoid, #4: Messy Decorations.
Fresh cut evergreens dry out rather quickly in the home. Inside, also real trees often dry out and drop needles. In addition, swags, wreaths and other decorations made from living plants can drop leaves or sap on your floor.
Yes, decorating with natural materials is lovely, but all of these contribute to making it harder to keep your home clean and tidy.
Holiday Decorating Tip 4: Water your Christmas tree daily and ditto, give your evergreen wreaths spray of water every day.
As well, how about using decorations that won’t leave a mess? Choose holiday decorative items that require little or no maintenance during the holidays.
