Here are a few other ways that you can decorate for Christmas without spending a lot of money: 

Decorating for the Holidays on a Budget

  • Hang a collection of glitter balls with ribbon and tulle from your curtain rod to give your room a little extra color. If you find a few Jo-Ann Fabrics coupons before shopping, this project could be done really cheap! Also, a lot of times if you go on Black Friday or the day after, these kinds of decorations can be picked up for next to nothing.
  • Glass jars and candles are so easy to find, cheaply! Fill them with corn, acorns, and candles, to make the perfect mantel accessory or table centerpiece. Last year, I purchased a few of these jars for less than $5 a piece, filled them with different color ornaments and tied a ribbon on for the perfect Christmas look.
  • We are creating memories for our children, so why not decorate our homes during the holidays with crafts made by our children? A wall canvas, paints, and the love from your little one’s hands, can create a sentimental holiday decoration that you will cherish for years.

These are just a few simple ideas of how you can spruce up your home during the holidays, the ones posted were all inspired by Pinterest.
