5 Easy Christmas Ideas for P500 or Less
Spruce up your home with the help of these no-cost tips
When it comes to decorating the home for the holidays, some of us opt for simple touches like a traditional tree and bright red poinsettias. There are also a few homeowners who choose to have unique decorations and one-of-a-kind trees! If you're on a budget, you can still create an inviting vibe that your friends and guests would truly appreciate. Here are five easy ideas that won't hurt your pocket:
Make it memorable and personal
We're used to seeing faux flowers, stars, and balls adorning the Christmas tree, but how about using photos of family members and loved ones instead? Print out your favorite photos, attach them to a cardboard and hang these on your tree!
Add refreshing touches
While you can always buy new wreaths, you can actually opt for indoor plants that are easy to maintain! Succulents in mini planters can be displayed and groups in the dining area. Does your living area look to plain? Place a vase filled with fresh flowers. You may add a few faux plants, too!
Bring in scents
There are scents that can easily remind you of Christmas morning and festive vibes! Place a scented candle in the living, dining, and kitchen areas! These can add a calming touch to the home, too.
Work on a couple of DIY projects
Christmas stockings are available in different colors and sizes. If you want something personalized, you can knit and crochet your own! Aside from learning a new hobby, you can also work on simple DIY Christmas decorations. Gather some twigs from your garden, spray paint them in your chosen hue, then place them in a clear vase. Voila! An instant tree for your living area.
Work with what you already have
You don't need to buy new decor pieces every year. Check your cabinets, drawers, and storage room for items that you can repurpose! Old cardboards and cartolina can be transformed into Christmas cones while colorful paper can be used to create holiday-themed buntings.
