Cost Effective Tips for Holiday Décor

Need some ideas for creative and cost-effective options for holiday décor? Some of our greatest tips involve reusing and repurposing items for your décor:

  1. We LOVE ribbons! Did you get a gift with a nifty holiday ribbon? Save it to use for a bow on top of a tree or to use as garland on a small tabletop tree. They also can dress up your battery-operated or wax candles.

  2. If you are a collector, this is an ideal time to showcase your collection on your tree! You don't need hooks to hang them when cute figurines can be nestled in a tree.

  3. Ornaments are great as accents, but why not repurpose other items you have that can be amazing holiday accents? I have used holiday-themed place card holders, small boxes, plush toys, dried flowers, and masks to adorn trees.

  4. When purchasing items, consider some of the discount stores for options. Big Lots, Dollar General, and thrift stores have some great finds. We even found some very inexpensive gems at Walmart in their bulk bins that were less than $2 each. Again, think outside of the ornament box for other holiday items to adorn your home.

  5. Remember making decorations as a kid? Well, this is a great family project to string popcorn and cranberries, make paper chains, or spiral pieces from pie tins.

  6. Need a fun centerpiece? Use a tall glass cylindrical vase filled with holiday potpourri or ornaments and add a battery-operated strand of lights.

  7. Consider a little diversity in your holiday accents. While we may be distant for the holidays, representation is just as essential during the holidays as the rest of the year.
