There is a little bit over a week till Christmas! Christmas is coming and it's time to feel the Christmas spirit! A good way to do that is to decorate your home for the holiday. Following are several easy ways to decorate for Christmas. These ideas are all quite simple, but they will give you lots of quick, easy, inexpensive ways to add some Christmas cheer to your home.

** Put a Christmas screen saver on your computer.

** Hang a large December wall calendar on your wall. Count down the days to Christmas by gluing a brightly-colored bow on each passing day.

** If there is snow where you live, make a snowman. Better yet, make a whole snow family or even a whole snow village!

** Make simple bows from Christmas print ribbon and pin them to your curtains.

** Hang a collection of Christmas stocking on your mantle, a shelf or the wall (even if you don't stuff them). The more the merrier.

** Decorate plain red, white, green or gold candles with 3-dimensional fabric paint. Draw stars, bells, angels, snowmen, etc. If you make a mistake, let the paint dry and peal it off, then start again.

** Add color to a room with vases of red and white flowers. Use roses, carnations, mums, daisies, etc. Or, float the flowers in large crystal or glass bowls.

** Make basic sugar cookies or gingerbread cookies. Before baking, make a hole toward the top of each cookie using a straw. Bake and cool. String a ribbon through each cookie and hang them on your Christmas tree.

**String popcorn, cranberries, cereal, beads, etc. and hang the garlands everywhere.

** Make some old-fashioned tree decorations. Wrap nuts with aluminum foil; use a needle and thread to stitch a thread through the foil for hanging. Glue ribbon to pine cones for hanging. String popcorn streamers. Make paper chains. Cut snowflakes from white paper.
