Cheap and Easy Holiday Décor Ideas

Photograph of a Homemade Christmas DecorationFestive decorations can make a Filer rental home feel cozy for the holidays. And the main thing is that holiday décor doesn’t need to be sophisticated or overpriced. Rather, with just a few vital materials and some creativity, you can compose reasonable and easy holiday décor items for your home. Furthermore, we have combined several of our favorite holiday décor do-it-yourself projects on a budget.

Flannel It Up

There are several things that can warm up cold winter nights like flannel sheets, blankets, and pillows. Simply changing your regular sheets for a set made of warm flannel can bring a feeling of comfort to your home. It would help if you considered adding flannel throw pillows around the house for a quick bump in design. If storage space is a problem, begin making or buying seasonal pillow covers. Pillow covers are easy to make and can be modified for new patterns once the holidays are ended.

Glass Jar Snow Globe

If you have large glass jars in your kitchen, you can easily make them 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 stylish string around the rim, and you’ve now got a beautiful glass jar snow globe for your home.

Holiday Lanterns

Decorative lanterns are a perfect year-round décor thing. Get yours prepared for the holidays by filling them with strings of lights or shiny ornaments. Place a bright ribbon at the top for even more holiday feeling. You can use different sizes of lanterns for a dramatic effect. You may also put some string light lanterns in a fireplace for instant mood lighting or place lanterns filled with ornaments close to an entryway.

Gingerbread House Advent

For an enjoyable way 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, when you feel adventurous, make them out of real gingerbread! Remember to number them, and then place 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 set. Using small unpainted birdhouses, decorate each one to look like an alluring holiday village. Scatter some imitation snow on each roof and add some model village accessories for even more charm. After all, hang a string of lights above your village to give your display a warm and happy feel.

Colorful Holiday Garland

If you love working with fabrics, consider making an easy and decorative 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 mount them somewhere. Use felt strips in your theme color, or go bold with a perfect rainbow. Regardless of your decision, you will be making a gorgeous holiday decoration that you can use over and over again.
