Cheap and Easy Holiday Décor Ideas

Photograph of a Homemade Christmas DecorationFestive decorations can make a Carver County rental home feel cozy for the holidays. And fortunately, your holiday décor doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive. Instead, with just a few materials and some creativity, you can create low-cost and useful holiday décor items for your home. In what follows, we’ve collated several of our favorite holiday décor do-it-yourself projects on a budget.

Flannel It Up

A few things can warm up cold winter nights like flannel sheets, blankets, and pillows. Simply converting your regular sheets for a set made of warm flannel will give your home a comfortable environment. You must also try to add flannel throw pillows around the house for a quick uplift. If storage space is a problem, try making or buying seasonal pillow covers. Pillow covers are easy to make and can be converted for new patterns once the holidays are over.

Glass Jar Snow Globe

If you have tall glass jars in your kitchen, you can easily turn them into holiday-themed decorations! Just add white sugar or flour to the bottom of the jar, then top with model village houses, trees, and accessories. Tie a stylish decorative bow around the rim, and you’ve now got a beautiful glass jar snow globe for your home.

Holiday Lanterns

Decorative lanterns are an ideal year-round décor item. Make yours now for the holidays by filling them with strings of lights or shiny ornaments. Tie a bright ribbon at the top for even more holiday cheer. You can use different sizes of lanterns for a dramatic effect. You can also place some of the string light lanterns in a fireplace for quick mood lighting or arrange lanterns filled with ornaments beside an entryway.

Gingerbread House Advent

For a creative way to count down the days to Christmas, try building a gingerbread house advent for your shelf or mantel. You can buy or build simple little wooden or cardboard houses and then paint them to look like gingerbread. Or, if you’re feeling determined, make them out of real gingerbread! Be certain to number them, and then place a small gift or treat underneath to make the holiday countdown twice as sweet.

Bird House Christmas Village

Another simple décor project uses small wooden birdhouses to create a charming Christmas village presentation. Using small unpainted birdhouses, decorate each one to look like a stunning holiday village. Shower some imitation snow on each roof and add some model village accessories for even more mini charm. At long last, hang a string of lights above your village to give your display a warm and festive feel.

Colorful Holiday Garland

If you enjoy working with fabrics, consider making an easy and sparkling felt garland for your home or Christmas tree. Using small strips of colorful felt, you simply tie them onto a long piece of twine and then placed them all over your house. Use felt strips in your theme color, or go bold with the entire rainbow. Regardless of your choice, you can always create a stunning holiday decoration that you can use over and over again.
