Cheap and Easy Holiday Décor Ideas

Photograph of a Homemade Christmas DecorationFestive decorations can make a Roy rental home feel cozy for the holidays. And the most significant thing is that holiday décor doesn’t need to be excessive or high-priced. Rather, with just a few main materials and some creativity, you can produce creative and uncomplicated holiday décor items for your home. In what follows, we’ve collected several of our favorite holiday décor do-it-yourself projects on a budget.

Flannel It Up

A couple of things can warm up cold winter nights like flannel sheets, blankets, and pillows. Simply switching your regular sheets for a set made of warm flannel can set an impression of relaxation in your home. It is also recommended to include flannel throw pillows around the house for a quick improvement. If storage space is a problem, try making or buying seasonal pillow covers. Pillow covers are easy to make and can be switched for new patterns once the holidays are over.

Glass Jar Snow Globe

If you have tall glass jars in your kitchen, you can instantly convert them into holiday-themed decorations! Just add white sugar or flour to the bottom of the jar, then top with model village houses, trees, and accessories. Tie a pretty decoration around the rim, and you’ve now got a beautiful glass jar snow globe for your home.

Holiday Lanterns

Decorative lanterns are an ideal year-round décor item. Get yours ready for the holidays by filling them with strings of lights or shiny ornaments. Put a bright ribbon at the top for even more holiday ambiance. You can use different sizes of lanterns for a dramatic effect. You can also group some of the string light lanterns in a fireplace for quick mood lighting or arrange lanterns filled with ornaments near an entryway.

Gingerbread House Advent

For an inventive approach to count down the days to Christmas, try creating 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’re really determined, make them out of real gingerbread! Be certain to number them, and after that, add a small gift or treat underneath to make the holiday countdown twice as sweet.

Bird House Christmas Village

Another simple décor project uses small wooden birdhouses to create a charming Christmas village display. Using miniature unpainted birdhouses, decorate each one to look like a beautiful holiday village. Shower some imitation snow on each roof and some model village accessories for it to look even more adorable. In the end, hang a string of lights above your village to provide your display a warm and holiday feel.

Colorful Holiday Garland

If you prefer working with fabrics, consider making an easy and lively 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 display them around your home. Use felt strips in your theme color, or go with the entire rainbow. No matter what your preference is, you can still make a lovely holiday decoration that you can use over and over again.
