How to Decorate for Christmas on a Budget

For many, Christmas is their favourite holiday, but it can also be the most expensive holiday. There are things you can do to help save money when you decorate for Christmas. Are you trying to stay on a budget this holiday season? Fortunately, there are plenty of ways you can keep up the Christmas spirit and traditions without breaking the bank. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

Here are some ideas on how to decorate for Christmas on a budget:

1. Make your own ornaments. Whether you make ornaments from beads and pipe cleaner or create some paper ornaments, DIY ornaments can save you bundles of money. They will also help you create lifetime memories with your kids!

2. Design a homemade wreath. You might make it out of bows, ribbon, or construction paper. No matter how you design it, a homemade wreath will create a warm, welcoming experience for anyone who knocks on your front door.

3. Go ribbon crazy. Ribbon is an easy way to add some holiday spirit throughout your home. You can tie bows on your staircase, make bows for the Christmas tree, and so much more!

4. Break out your candles. White and red candles, in particular, can make for great Christmas décor, but any candles will do and they really set the mood.

5. Check out the dollar stores. Another idea to help you save on your Christmas décor budget is to check out local dollar stores for good items.

  1. Great tips. Homemade is the best! I find it so fun to make ornaments and little crafts and they mean more to me than anything store-bought! 🙂 Merry Christmas to you

  2. in 2014 my oldest got married and we had it at our house. I didnt have much time to prepare ore the funds so we really did a budget christmas weddin. Thank goodness for pinterest got some really great diy ideas and everything was beautiful.

  3. Awesome ideas! I would love to make our own wreath. I’ve seen some really neat ones on Instagram. I’ve also been using a lot of ribbons in our tree decorating. I love the glamorous and traditional look it adds!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Good article on Decorating on a Budget, good ideas on budget friendly Christmas Decorations. I would also make popcorn then use a needle & thread to make ropes to go around the tree, then add red bows & round balls in different colors.
