Decorating for Christmas can get expensive, especially when you only use those decorations for a few months. Check out these decoration ideas that won’t break the bank.
I use this lantern all year round and for Christmas I fill it with ornaments and tie a Christmas ribbon around the handle. Place it on your kitchen table, fire place mantle or in a corner.
Pick your favorite holiday saying and spell it out with paper mache letters. You can find these letters at JoAnne Fabrics. Pick out your favorite color and spray paint them for an extra special touch! I attached them to the wall with Scotch Adhesive Putty.
After you trim your Christmas tree, save some of the branches and find a vase or pale (one that you already own). Fill the vase with some pine cones, tree branches, beads, lights and whatever other random Christmas things you have laying around.
Christmas ornaments can be some of the most expensive decorations. Bake a few extra cookies and hang them in your tree, on your windows or fireplace. Store them in a shoebox with tissue paper. They will last for years!
Dollar Store picture frames + christmas paper (or wrapping paper)= great decoration for the wall, center piece or fireplace mantel.
Cluster together a few small decorations on a cocktail table. Recycle a glass jar, hot glue twine around the jar. On a piece of wax paper make your own snowman out of glue and then glue it onto the vase.
Fill a bowl with inexpensive ornaments.
Happy decorating to all and to all a good night!
