Christmas is less than three weeks away. Can you believe that? Is your shopping done? Are the cookies baked? Have you even had time to put up your tree???
I wanted to share with you today some of our budget-friendly Christmas decor.
Since we now have a new house I want to spruce it up with some Christmas decorations. But, I don't want to spend a lot of money. SO this year I limited myself to just $20 to bring a little Christmas magic to my home.
I use a lot of things I already had, I found some great deals at Goodwill and I spread the Merry all over our little house.
There is a certain magic about Christmas and I don't want to miss a second of it. So here is a look at our budget-friendly decor.
Pine cone wreath.
Wreath I already owned (purchased at the Dollar Tree eight years ago) $0
Ribbon I already owned (also purchased a Dollar Tree eight years ago) $0
Pine cones from my yard $0
I simply wrapped the ribbon around the wreath and secured the ribbon and the pinecone with hot glue.
Boom! Free (sort of) wreath.
I made this frame last year. It was a cheap frame from the thrift store (I think it was a dollar.)
Poinsettias in a bucket
Two poinsettias $6
One bucket (already had it)
Ribbon from Lowes $3 (but split amongst lots of things)
I hot glued the bow and ribbon on the bucket and called it a day. I then shoved an ornament in there so... there is also that.
I bought this little topiary at Goodwill for $3.99. Then I glued on ribbon and ornaments. You can watch the details here:
Tomato cage topiary
This was the thing I was MOST excited about.
I took an old tomato cage, wrapped some garland I already owned and some lights I got last year and slapped a bow on the top.
It didn't cost me anything because I already owned it all!
