Tips For Cheap Christmas Decorations
- Glass jars/vases/hurricanes/bowls filled with brightly colored Christmas ornaments and placed throughout the home
- Garland wrapped around the chandelier over the dining room table or in the bedroom
- Brightly colored flannel lap throws or quilts tossed over a rocker or couch instantly bring Christmas into a room
- Fruit along the mantel or on shelves in place of every day items nestled into pine boughs is a natural and easy way to decorate for the holidays
- Attach Christmas cards to a piece of festive ribbon and hang along the banister or frame a doorway, adding new ones as they arrive in the mail.
- Vintage glassware of varying heights and sizes are excellent containers for votive or medium size candles. Place these along the mantel in the living room. Or, create a quick and festive centerpiece for the dining room by grouping several on a silver platter and surround the lot with holly berries and greenery.
- Candy canes tied with green, red, and white ribbons and placed in a festive container or a simple glass vase – on the mantel, in the foyer, in bedrooms, or guest bathrooms
- Make paper snowflakes with your children. Suspend these beautiful wintery creations from the ceiling of your child’s bedroom during the Christmas holiday. Or, suspend them in the windows.
- Wrap framed artwork and throw pillows with Christmas fabric to appear as gifts
- Fill empty glass bottles with cranberries or holly berries
- Make inexpensive luminaries using soup cans, a hammer and a nail (an adult project). Place candles inside and use them to line the porch or sidewalk or in groupings inside the house.
- Spray paint pine branches or wood twigs with silver or gold for a dramatic touch to fireplace mantels, centerpieces, windowsills, etc.
- Christmas mini lights – add sparkle and cheer to mirrors, fireplaces, mantels, dining room sideboards, holiday villages, above kitchen cabinets, and anywhere else in the house you’d like a bit of light.
- Hang a wreath on the front door to welcome family and friends. It can be as simple as green wreath with a bright red bow. Or, wrap an inexpensive grapevine wreath with Christmas ribbon and a bow. Simple, but effective.
- Silk flowers are easily placed into a vase, tucked into wreaths or pine branches, or used as a mantel accent – use Christmas colors of red and crème or your own choice of holiday colors
- Ribbon is inexpensive, but can add charm and whimsy to any space. Tie ribbons around the backs of dining room chairs, vases, or pillows. Ribbon can be used to suspend a single ornament in the middle of a window for instant cheap christmas decorations. Use ribbon strung with sleigh bells to decorate your staircase banister or front porch.
