Cheap and Easy Holiday Décor Ideas

Photograph of a Homemade Christmas DecorationFestive decorations can make a Denton rental home feel cozy for the holidays. And the good news is that holiday décor doesn’t need to be extravagant or high-priced. Instead, with just a few basic materials and some creativity, you can create low-cost and easy holiday décor items for your home. Furthermore, we have consolidated some of our favorite holiday décor do-it-yourself projects on a budget.

Flannel It Up

Some 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 can offer your home a sense of warmth. You can also consider putting flannel throw pillows around the house for a quick bump up. If storage space is a problem, try making or buying seasonal pillow covers. Pillow covers are easy to make and can be transformed for new patterns once the holidays are finished.

Glass Jar Snow Globe

If you have large glass jars in your kitchen, you can quickly turn them into holiday-themed decorations! Just pour white sugar or flour on the bottom of the jar, then top with model village houses, trees, and accessories. Tie a pretty cord 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 equipped 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 may also group 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 a creative 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 artistic, 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

Another easy décor project uses small wooden birdhouses to create a charming Christmas village set. Using mini unpainted birdhouses, decorate each one to look like a cute holiday village. Put some imitation snow on each roof and some model village accessories for even more miniature appearance. After all that, hang a string of lights above your village to add your display a warm and joyful feel.

Colorful Holiday Garland

If you prefer working with fabrics, consider making an appropriate and festive 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 attach them somewhere. Use felt strips in your theme color, or go bold with a perfect rainbow. No matter what you pick, you will make a magnificent holiday decoration that you can use over and over again.
