Tips and Tricks For Decorating For Christmas On A Budget

Creative Ways That Will Make Decorating For Christmas On A Budget Fun and Easy.

Decorating for Christmas on a budget this year and need a little inspiration? Here are a few quick and easy tips that will get you started on creating a beautiful holiday!

Deck The Halls With Ornaments

Glass Christmas tree ornaments are very inexpensive and you can cheaply buy them in bulk at discount stores and even thrift shops. Fill glass containers with new or vintage ornaments for a pretty centerpiece. Tuck them in bowls or on shelves among your everyday decor for a festive look.

Decorating With Vintage Christmas Ornaments























Dress up a chandelier by hanging an assortment or glass ornaments from each arm.

Decorating For Christmas




















Bring In The Great Outdoors.

Your own backyard can be a great source for decorating for Christmas on a budget and the best part is that it’s all free! Gather some dead branches, paint them white and sprinkle with glitter. Place them in a vase or other decorative container and you have a beautiful centerpiece! Greenery from Holly bushes or pine trees can be made into wreaths, garlands or tucked in shelves and book cases. If you  do not have pine trees or another type of evergreens in your backyard you may be able to get some leftover Christmas tree clippings from your local home improvement store or Christmas tree lot. They usually throw them away anyway.

Pine cones make great fillers during the holidays. Place them in baskets, wooden bowls, on shelves or a mantel. Roll them in Spackle, let it dry and it will give the pine cones the illusion that they are covered in snow! You can also do this with the old branches you brought in from the backyard.

Wrap It Up!

Need to fill up a naked corner, shelf or table? Wrap up empty boxes with decorative paper and fancy ribbon to create cute Christmas packages. You can place them in the soffit area in your kitchen, under a tree, in baskets or just about anywhere that needs a little holiday cheer. Small packages can be placed in bowls or other containers.

You can also use the same technique on your walls. “Wrap” up framed art or photos that normally hang on your wall with decorative paper and ribbon and you will have instant holiday decor!
