Frugal Christmas Decorations

Decorating your home for Christmas doesn’t have to be expensive. There are many ways to add color and a festive look without breaking your budget.

  • If you have children, a fun project for them is to use stencils and glitter spray, or a sponge dipped in paint on a window or two.
  • Homemade paper snowflakes are a great craft idea for kids, and can have simple or elaborate designs.
  • Making cinnamon scented ornaments is a good family project that adds a wonderful fragrance to your home. Check here for directions: http://www.betterbudgeting.com/frugalcrafts/cinnamonornaments.htm
  • Garlands can be made with almost anything you have around including beads, buttons, popcorn, cranberries etc.
  • If you have an abundance of cards, you can hang them from a string. Save them up from year to year.
  • Thrift stores are another source for decorations, and if you plan ahead, you can often find good items at summer yard sales.
  • Candles are always pretty during the holidays, and these and other decorations can be found for less at dollar stores.
  • Even a simple red tablecloth can be dressed up with glitter.
  • Ornaments displayed in a pretty bowl is an easy centerpiece. Or mix pine cones with some fresh evergreen branches. For added pizazz, you could spray the cones with glitter spray
