Budget – Friendly Decorating Tips for the Holidays
Holidays are coming and most of us are extremely excited. If you haven’t decorated your home for the holidays just yet, this is the perfect post for you. Good news is, you don’t need to buy expensive Christmas ornaments just to feel the spirit. Just a pinch of creativity and it will do you just fine.
Are you ready?
Use What You Have
Get that old box of christmas balls and ribbons. Instead of using your old stuff as it is, be creative by redesigning it. For example, you can add glitters to your christmas balls. Or maybe you can add ribbons and make it look like brand new. This should be a fun activity and definitely fulfilling.
Take Out Your Festive Items
This season, use your colorful plates and glasses. Add color to your home and you will instantly feel the holidays. Either you just showcase it, or use it for special family dinners.
Use Colorful Candles
Candles are generally affordable so if you can scout for colorful ones, then that can be a great addition to your home.
Who doesn’t want candies? Use the traditional candy canes for your Christmas tree. Perhaps, you can have a lot of colorful candies in different used jars. We’re sure that you are going to have a sweet Christmas. And trust us, the kids will enjoy it!
Decorate Your Used Bottles and Jars
As we’ve said, you can use old jars for decorating your home this season. Stretch your creativity by painting your bottles/jars or adding some beads.
Bake Christmas Cookies
If you have the talent to bake, why not prepare cookies shaped like candy canes, or gingerbread house, or even Santa Clause. Place it in a jar and refill it when necessary. Your guests will surely love it.
Get the Toys Out
They say that Christmas is for kids. So, make your house kid-friendly by putting the best toys as display. The recommended ones are the toy soldiers and dolls. You can even make a diorama and mimic a nice Christmas dinner.
Make a Photo Collage
Print a lot of photos from the Christmas parties you attended in the past. Your families and friends will enjoy reminiscing the fun days and well, you can see what changes year after year.
