As we approach the holiday season, there is nothing better than being surrounded by festive decorations and happy people. While decorating can be expensive, it doesn’t necessarily have to be. Here are some simple (and cheap) ideas for DIY Christmas decorations that will make your home cozy and festive.
Old Wine Bottles
Save a few of those wine bottles from the holiday parties, and turn them into decorations. Simply peel off the label, replace it with some nice ribbon, place a candle in the bottle, and you have yourself a nice centerpiece.
People tend to collect more ornaments than they actually need over the years, but you don’t have to put the extras back in the box. Find other places around your house to hang them (on wreaths, for example).
Candy is a great decoration that serves multiple purposes. Your guests have something to munch on, and it also looks great. You can fill dishes with colorful candies, and you can hang candy canes all around the house.
By getting creative with your holiday decorations, you will both save yourself some money and have a truly unique home for the holidays. Think outside the box this year, and impress your family and guests.
