5 Ways to Keep Your Home Merry and Bright

Rachel Williams

Are you home for the holidays? Bring a little holiday cheer to your home with these five fun projects.

1. Create hand-painted holiday mugs.

Buy a few inexpensive mugs and gift them to friends or family by adding a little paint and some candy inside. Stencils or paint markers work wonders on these types of projects. Read more about how to preserve your painted designs here.

2. Add an extra “pop” of paint to your front door.

If you’re like most homeowners, a complete home (or even room) renovation is a tad bit overwhelming. Repainting your front door is an easy way to freshen up your space from the outside in.

If you don’t have the time to research paint sheens, brands and prep work, call in the experts at Brad Stoner Painting and all you’ll need to decide on is the color!

3. Hang Ornaments… on your windows!

We’ve all heard of ornaments on a tree, but ornaments on a window? Use fishing line or ribbon to hang ornaments on windows, mirrors and empty picture frames for a festive look this season.

4. Paint pinecones in your favorite color.

Who ever said décor needed come from a department store? If your neighborhood is laden with pinecones, pick up a few unbroken cones and bring them home.

To start, wipe off (or rinse and let dry) your pinecones. Next, add your favorite paint color - these natural cones can be dipped in paint, hand-painted at the tips or spray-painted – whatever your preference! Check out this article to learn more about hanging your newly painted project or explore these photos for inspiration.

5. Build your own miniature snow globes.

What better way to brighten up your San Diego space this season, than by creating your own winter wonderland? These mini snow globes make great mantle displays, table centerpieces or window décor.

We hope these ideas help brighten your Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays! If your version of “bright” involves a fresh coat of paint, call Brad Stoner Painting today at 858-586-7751.
