Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays – unless of course, you’re heading to the cabin for some serious winter merrymaking. Maybe it’s the snow, or the cold, or the ice, but the lure of cabin country to celebrate the holidays is inescapable. And when you get there, what’s the first thing you have in mind? If you’re like the rest of us, it’s relaxing and having fun skating, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or just winding down in front of a roaring fireplace with those you love.

In any case, decorating a tree or dressing up the mantel might not make the top 10 on your to-do list. Well, we’ve got some ideas that’ll take the drudgery out of decorating. For our purposes, we pulled together old stashes of craft supplies, flea market and antique store finds, and a few kitchen staples to create a hearth with a warm holiday glow.

Here’s how to chart your way to a low-stress holiday decorating scheme by making the most of what you have already on hand and what you might be able to scrounge up. These tips will help you bring a relaxed but festive touch to your surroundings.
