DECORATE YOUR HOME FOR CHRISTMAS ON A BUDGET
The holidays are a wonderful time in which an ideal atmosphere is created to share together with family and friends in the midst of great traditions. And without a doubt, one of the most typical traditions these days is to decorate our home several weeks in advance to feel the Christmas spirit. With the holidays right around the corner, we give you some ideas on how to decorate for Christmas on a budget.
A tree is a must when it comes to Christmas. Whether you prefer classic green or white, a tree is the first step in making your house ready for the holiday season. If you are on a budget, get an artificial tree that you can re-use next year. And the year after that!
ORNAMENTS OUTSIDE THE TREE
After you hung your ornaments on your tree, use the ornaments you have left to decorate outside the tree. For example, hang some from the chimney edge or place them on top to create a mantle, or place them in a clear vase as a centerpiece for the dinner table.
The holiday season is a time of warmth and coziness. Light up some candles to set the mood in your house, they can elevate your holiday décor and won’t break your budget. Candles can look great on tables as part of the centerpiece, on top of your fireplace or hallway furniture, or inside a lantern.
ADD HOLIDAY THROW PILLOWS
You don’t need to replace your entire living room home décor and color scheme, but adding little accents like a couple of festive throw pillows and a cozy blanket to your sofa will get the area looking like the holiday season is just around the corner. Not only will they add a pop of color and bring the room together, but will also add a sense of warmth and coziness in the winter days.
Stockings hung around the fireplace or on the wall are an easy way to decorate a large section of the living room. Pick a stocking that goes with your color themes you picked for your Christmas décor this year, whether that is classic red and green, icy wonderland or any other style!
DRESS THE TABLE WITH HANDMADE TOUCHES
Time to get crafty! Or get your kids busy and have them make it instead. Make small, personalized details like napkin holders or name tags for your guests. These add a nice touch to your décor and can also work as a keepsake for your guests.
BRING OUTDOORS INDOORS
The natural look during this season is lovely. Use tree twigs, dried flowers, or other sprigs you find outside as part of your décor. Put a little twig on each plate, along the table-runner, or use them in a vase with ornaments and string lights. Using nature in your décor is free, it adds a warm touch, and it brings life and volume to your décor.
