Luckily, there are so many lovely ways you can add holiday cheer to your home that are cheap, easy, and mess-free. These clutter busters are often items you could use all year long. The trick is to swap out functional items that also double as decorative touches, or to use pieces (often smaller or hung up high) that are light and don’t get in anyone’s way.
And many of these clutter busters incorporate fun DIY ideas that will add an even more personal touch to your home.
One of the best ways to reduce the clutter of holiday décor is to use smaller, flatter pieces that don’t cause a mess or get in the way. Elegant window clings like these are a welcome addition to any window.
Use them for a display of your holiday baking or keep on hand for those last-minute gifts. Fill them with baked goods, personal items or cold weather gear such as mittens, beanies etc. These are probably the most popular clutter busters.

Instead of the heavy thick garland add a thinner wispy garland on your table as a centerpiece or instead of a table runner. Also you could use them around your doors, on your banisters and handrails. Takes up less room to store also.
One of the quickest ways to make anything look festive is to spray paint it gold or silver. It’s an especially pretty look when applied to foliage, like bare branches, pinecones, or holly. Then just put your gilded greenery in a vase, and you have a beautiful arrangement that’ll last all season.
