Easy (and Fast!) Ways to Decorate Your Home for the Holidays

Decking your halls has never been easier.

Between gift shopping, cookie baking, and entertaining, there's a lot going on during the holiday season. This also means you probably don't have hours to spend crafting the perfect holiday decor theme.

Fortunately, you don't have to do much to make your home look festive in every corner. There are plenty of pretty touches you can add to get your home holiday ready in 15 minutes (or less!). Bonus: Many of them don't scream "holiday," so you won't feel obligated to tuck them away after New Year's Day.
