10 Inexpensive Tips to Decorate Your Home for Holiday Season

Christmas Time is one of the busiest periods of the year. People celebrate the holidays through decorating their home, exchanging gifts, partying, etc. Most of us start the festival spree with shopping and by the time the clothes are brought, gifts are wrapped and cookies are ordered, more than 90% of the budgeted amount is spent. Although the budget is tight, all of us will be tempted to decorate our home as Christmas without decorations and lights is just not pleasant.

If you go out to the market to buy things for decoration then you will come across a myriad of decorative items but most of them would be wearing an expensive price tag. There is no need to be disheartened as there are several other ways that shall only cost you pennies but shall assist in creating a memorable setting.

1.Take out your entire old stock before you rush to your store to buy decoration times. Chances are that you must have carefully stored several things that did not get spoiled last year. Lights, sparkle, stars are generally stored for the next season.

2.Choose a theme for your Christmas decoration. This will simplify your decisions, and you will not be tempted to buy things just because they are sweet and cute.

3.Take a walk around your area, if you are fortunate enough then you might locate berries, pine cones, tree boughs, pines, etc, that are known to impart a lively appearance to the house.

4.Try to make garlands at home. Use a green and red barn along with string cinnamon sticks and braid them together. You cannot only use it on the Christmas tree but also hang them on the window and door frames.

5.Buy some glass ornaments from the dollar store and use them to dress your tree. You can even place some ornaments in a big serving bowl with sparking water to create a center piece.

6.If you possess any silver metal cutters or any other object, shine them and wrap them with a red ribbon and hang them all around your home.

7.With washable paints, create Christmas scenes on your glass doors and windows.

8.Spray paint large pines in gold or silver. You can arrange these in vases and bowls for an eye catching center piece or hang them around trees.

9.Glue together glass ornaments to create a holiday sculpture.  You can also use foam shapes.

10.Place some nuts such as cinnamon or nutmeg in a bowl and sprinkle cider and fill your house with pleasant scents.

    Great photos, poor copy. Lots of grammatical and spelling errors, as though this has been written by someone for who English is not a first language. Needs a little spellcheck, that’s all. :)
