    I often check out a church shop, it’s amazing what they have on offer there and cheap too.

    I have made my own wreath several times, often using a foam ring, glue, pine cones and decorations. Other times using sprigs of pine and twine. Both were fairly easy and there are always plenty of decorations at the Dollar store.

  10. Jonnie says:

    The dollar store is a great place to get affordable decorations. I find that I barely have to buy anything anymore because I have saved all the decorations over the years.

  11. Lynda Cook says:

    The dollar store has a lot of great finds for making your own or they even have decorations you can buy!

    I need a wreath and can’t afford to spend much on one so I like the idea of making your own! I think I’ll do that.

  13. AD says:

    Great tips! I think something can also be said about proper storage and wrapping of your decorations after every Christmas season. And also when purchasing, investing in quality and not quantity.

    The first year of our marriage, we didn’t have a ton of money. Our tree was one that my parents had and no longer used. And we decorated it with homemade ornaments, a lot of them made with items found in nature.(pine cones, twigs…) And after Christmas, during Boxing week, store bought ornaments were purchased at a fraction of the regular price.

  15. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    I too like to see what’s on sale after the holidays that I’d like to add to my collection. Dollar stores also have an amazing amount of decorations at a good price before Christmas too.
