Cheap and Easy Holiday Décor Ideas

Photograph of a Homemade Christmas DecorationFestive decorations can make a Royal Oak rental home feel cozy for the holidays. And best of all, holiday décor doesn’t need to be extravagant or costly. Actually, with just a few simple materials and some creativity, you can create inexpensive and easy holiday décor items for your home. As follows, we’ve assembled a couple of our favorite holiday décor do-it-yourself projects on a budget.

Flannel It Up

Few things can warm up cold winter nights like flannel sheets, blankets, and pillows. Simply changing your regular sheets for a set made of warm flannel will bring a new level of comfort to your home. You should even consider placing flannel throw pillows around the house for a quick boost. If storage space is a problem, think about making or buying seasonal pillow covers. Pillow covers are easy to make and can be changed for new patterns once the holidays are over.

Glass Jar Snow Globe

If you have big glass jars in your kitchen, you can quickly transform them into holiday-themed decorations! Just put white sugar or flour on the bottom of the jar, then top with model village houses, trees, and accessories. Tie a cute ribbon around the rim, and you’ve now got a beautiful glass jar snow globe for your home.

Holiday Lanterns

Decorative lanterns are a great year-round décor thing. Prepare yours for the holidays by filling them with strings of lights or shiny ornaments. Attach a bright ribbon at the top for even more holiday attractions. You can utilize different sizes of lanterns for a dramatic effect. You can also assemble a few string light lanterns in a fireplace for immediate mood lighting or group lanterns filled with ornaments nearby an entryway.

Gingerbread House Advent

For an innovative approach to count down the days to Christmas, try making 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 feel confident, make them out of real gingerbread! Don’t forget to number them, and afterward, put a small gift or treat underneath to make the holiday countdown twice as sweet.

Bird House Christmas Village

One more simple décor project uses small wooden birdhouses to create a charming Christmas village display. Using little unpainted birdhouses, decorate each one to look like an attractive holiday village. Put some imitation snow on each roof and some model village accessories for even more miniature features. Ultimately, hang a string of lights above your village to bring your display a pleasant and holiday feel.

Colorful Holiday Garland

If you prefer working with fabrics, consider making an easy and pretty felt garland for your home or Christmas tree. Utilizing small strips of colorful felt, you simply tie them onto a long piece of twine and afterward place them somewhere. Use felt strips in your theme color, or go big with a whole rainbow. In any case, you’re going to make a beautiful holiday decoration that you can use over and over again.
