Holiday decorating made easy with Dec. Home Improvement

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (HEARTLAND WEEKEND) - Menards December 2021 Home Improvement has suggestions on how to make this year’s holiday decorating experience fun and exciting for everyone involved.

There are several decorating tips Menards has for organization, placement, storage and more.

Organization tips include:

  • Label totes and organizers with the season or area they belong to.
  • Create a “list of contents” for containers with multiple items.
  • Insert dividers for ornaments and other small pieces.
  • Protect fragile décor with bubble wrap.

Advice on proper storage:

  • Having a designated space for each season can ease up on the clutter and chaos of it all.
  • Sorting décor by use or placement is the most common type of holiday storage.
  • Keep decorating and storing painless by categorizing decorations most helpful to your lifestyle and preference.
  • Properly storing items and keeping them all in one place can save time the following year.

Decorating guidelines for this year’s holiday season:

  • Less is more. Keep it simple using greens as accent pieces throughout your home.
  • Donate items that you haven’t used in a few years to your local charity.
  • Prevent tangled messes of lights, garland, and more by keeping string-like items in a circular shape.
  • Place scent sticks to radiate sweet-smelling aromas during the holiday season.
  • Choose decoration items with fewer special requirements to ensure a fast cleanup session.

If you’re having trouble deciding between a real or fake Christmas tree, ask yourself the following:

  • How long do you want to keep the tree up?
  • How much time do you have?
  • What is your budget?
  • Is maintenance important to you?
