Cheap and Easy Holiday Décor Ideas

Photograph of a Homemade Christmas DecorationFestive decorations can make a La Cañada Flintridge rental home feel cozy for the holidays. And the great thing is that holiday décor doesn’t need to be complex or pricey. As a matter of fact, with just a few essential materials and some creativity, you can create low-priced and easy holiday décor items for your home. In the following, we have compiled some of our favorite holiday décor do-it-yourself projects on a budget.

Flannel It Up

Several things can warm up cold winter nights like flannel sheets, blankets, and pillows. Simply turning your regular sheets for a set made of warm flannel will give your home a fresh touch of coziness. It would be great if you try adding flannel throw pillows around the house for immediate improvement. 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 finished.

Glass Jar Snow Globe

If you have huge glass jars in your kitchen, you can quickly convert 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 an attractive ribbon around the rim, and you’ve now got a beautiful glass jar snow globe for your home.

Holiday Lanterns

Decorative lanterns are an excellent year-round décor item. Get yours ready for the holidays by filling them with strings of lights or shiny ornaments. Place a bright ribbon at the top for even more holiday spirit. You may choose different sizes of lanterns for a dramatic effect. You can also place multiple string light lanterns in a fireplace for quick mood lighting or group lanterns filled with ornaments near an entryway.

Gingerbread House Advent

For an artistic means 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’re really ambitious, make them out of real gingerbread! Make sure to number them, and then include 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 theme. With tiny unpainted birdhouses, decorate each one to look like a beautiful holiday village. Apply some imitation snow to each roof and some model village accessories for even more miniature appeal. Lastly, hang a string of lights above your village to add to your display a cozy and cheerful feel.

Colorful Holiday Garland

If you like working with fabrics, consider making an easy and festive felt garland for your home or Christmas tree. With the help of 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 forward with a full rainbow. In all cases, you’ll have made a perfect holiday decoration that you can use over and over again.
