Is your home ready for Christmas? Decorating our home for the holiday season does not really imply spending a huge amount of money. Even without shelling out certain amount of bucks, you can still add a touch of Christmas in your home. Christmas ambiance is very feasible with just a few tricks.


Reuse Old Christmas Decorations


If you have bought Christmas decor from the previous years, you can still use them. There is no need to buy new ones. All you need to do is take them out from the storage box and install them. It is as simple as that. But if you want to make a different scene from last year, you can do some alterations on your decor.


Be bold in decorating your home. You can mix and match different items in your Christmas tree to make it look joyful. Instead of hanging Christmas balls on the tree, you can stuff them on a crystal bowl and set it on the table. It will make a stunning centerpiece.


Never throw any Christmas decor that you think you can still use. If they are a bit damage, you can try fixing them so you will not have to buy new pieces. Creativity is the primary key.


Use Homemade Christmas Decor


In case you want to embellish your home with new decor but you do not have the budget, you can create your own. Yes, you can craft your very own Christmas decorative items. You can buy the supplies in the store. Or you may recycle materials from you home.


Here are few examples:


  • Christmas ball from bottle caps - This decorative item is very simple to make. You just need to stick the sides of the caps together using hot glue. Put a ribbon around it and attach a sling.


  • Stars from old CDs - Draw a star on a paper and use it as a pattern. Trace the star on your old CDs and cut it using a cutter (be careful in cutting the shape). Glue a sling on the top so you can dangle it.


  • Mini Christmas tree from plastic bottles - If you have collected a bunch of plastic bottles, you can use them all to create a mini Christmas tree. All you need to do is to file them up in a triangular form - just like the Christmas tree - and stick them. As an alternative, you may also use tin cans. Add Christmas lights to bring life to your tree.


The list of decorations you can make at home is endless. Regardless of whether you live in one of those apartments in Atlanta or condominiums in New York, adding a Christmas atmosphere in your dwelling is quite simple. Just keep in mind that there are plenty of ideas you can carry out to save money on your Christmas decorations.
