Cheap and Easy Holiday Décor Ideas

Photograph of a Homemade Christmas DecorationFestive decorations can make a Chubbuck rental home feel cozy for the holidays. And the important thing is that holiday décor doesn’t need to be complicated or luxurious. Definitely, with just a few necessary materials and some creativity, you can make modest and easy holiday décor items for your home. Moreover, we have gathered some of our favorite holiday décor do-it-yourself projects on a budget.

Flannel It Up

Numerous kinds of stuff 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 provide a fresh touch of relaxation to your home. It is also advisable to put flannel throw pillows around the house for a quick uplift. If storage space is a problem, start making or buying seasonal pillow covers. Pillow covers are easy to make and can be exchanged for new patterns once the holidays are done.

Glass Jar Snow Globe

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

Holiday Lanterns

Decorative lanterns are a wonderful year-round décor thing. Prepare yours for the holidays by filling them with strings of lights or shiny ornaments. Put a bright ribbon at the top for even more holiday spirit. You can select different sizes of lanterns for a dramatic effect. You can also place multiple string light lanterns in a fireplace for immediate mood lighting or group lanterns filled with ornaments near an entryway.

Gingerbread House Advent

For an imaginative method to count down the days to Christmas, try building 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 inspired, make them out of real gingerbread! Do not forget to number them, and then put a small gift or treat underneath to make the holiday countdown twice as sweet.

Bird House Christmas Village

Another uncomplicated décor project uses small wooden birdhouses to create a charming Christmas village display. With mini unpainted birdhouses, decorate each one to look like a delightful holiday village. Sprinkle some imitation snow on each roof and some model village accessories for an even more cute appearance. At last, hang a string of lights above your village to give your display a warm and joyful feel.

Colorful Holiday Garland

If you enjoy working with fabrics, consider making an easy and vibrant 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 put them wherever you want. Use felt strips in your theme color, or go directly with a whole rainbow. Regardless of what you prefer, you will still craft an attractive holiday decoration that you can use over and over again.
