If you would like to add decoration to your home this Christmas season but you have a limited budget, then try out these inexpensive Christmas decorating ideas. You can create Christmas decorations out of items you have around the house, and you can design colourful Christmas displays without overspending on your holiday budget.
Your fireplace mantel can be one of the places where you add some cheap holiday cheer. Wrap some empty gift boxes, or any kind of boxes you have lying around, in Christmas wrapping paper. Finish the wrapping job by using Christmas ribbons and bows. Place the wrapped boxes on the mantel, and then augment the display with evergreen tree branches and pine cones. You can get the evergreen branches from your Christmas tree when you trim it prior to decorating it. The pine cones can be collected for free from outside, or you can buy them inexpensively at a local craft store. For additional colour, you can spray-paint the pine cones and evergreen branches.
A Christmas candy display can be an inexpensive holiday decoration, as well as a way to have some holiday cheer when you entertain guests. Get a clear plastic bowl and decorate it by wrapping a Christmas ribbon around it. Place cheap plastic cookie cutters on it and use the cookie cutters as painting guides. Finally, fill the bowl with colourful Christmas candy and put it on display in your home.
Floating Christmas Candles
Candles can be used in many ways to make cheap but effective Christmas decorations. You can take a clear vase or a clear drinking glass and fill it halfway with water. Wrap a red ribbon around the glass, and then place a small floating candle on top of the water. Floating tealight candles come in many colours, and you can use green and red candles along with white ones to create a Christmas candle theme. If the idea of dropping tealight candles into water does not appeal to you, then this idea can also work without the water.
A Christmas chandelier requires some planning and some effort, but it is a cheap way to create an impressive Christmas decoration. Connect two wire hangers together so that they are perpendicular to each other. Next, wrap the wire hangers in red or green Christmas ribbon. Be sure that the ribbon is wrapped tightly around the wire hangers and then secured in place with strong tape. Take some of your Christmas tree ornaments and hang them on the wire hangers. You will need to experiment with different styles and colours of ornaments, as well as their placement on the hangers.
