Holiday Decorations for Before and After Moving

Getty Images -96502380If you’re planning your move around the holidays, you might have decided to skip decorating this year. But what if there were a way to decorate for Christmas without creating a lot of extra work when it comes time to pack up? Here are some holiday decorating ideas to cheer up your home and give you some extra moving motivation that are easy to remove and set up again at your new house.

1. Holiday Wreaths

Wreaths can be attached to your walls with Command hooks or hung outside your house on a special wreath hanger that clips to the top of doors. You can find beautiful and inexpensive wreaths that look good in your home year-round at any home store or even at thrift stores. You can even lay them out on a table and fill the center with faux candles.

2. Christmas Light Projectors

These small projectors sit on stakes in your front yard and only require a power source to cover your home in beautiful LED patterns, from falling snow, to whirling snowflakes, to twinkling lights. Unlike string lights, you can make them disappear simply by switching off the projector.

3. Non-Traditional Christmas Trees

Setting up and taking down a Christmas tree, even a fake one, is already so time-consuming that many people avoid putting them away again until Easter. Get creative with art supplies and objects already in your home to put your own spin on the traditional tree. Even your kids can get involved!

4. Wrap it Up

These leftover wrapping paper DIY projects will help you fill every inch of your home with seasonal colors and patterns, and you can even use the scraps and remnants from last year. Best of all, when moving time comes, all you have to do is either fold it up to use it again in your new house or put it in the recycling bin.
