  1. I like to make ornaments out of as many reused materials as possible. Using pages from old hymn books picked up at a thrift store can turn into lovely Christmas decorations! I've also glitter-fied old light bulbs and turned them into ornaments. It's a fun activity, and you appreciate those decorations a little more than others :)

    One thing we do to decorate for the holidays cheap...is we wrap our pictures hanging on the walls with wrapping paper and bows! Then...we hang them back up! Look adorable for the holidays!

  3. We have a smaller Christmas tree for each of our boys rooms. We allow them to decorate it any way they wish. So our "Family" tree is full of momento ornaments and family heirlooms, our boys get to change their trees to suit their interests and hobbies. They like the opportunity to have their own decorating say.

    My decorating idea is to share that time with family. Turn off all cell phones and get everyone involved in Christmas decorating. Because one day, the people you thought would be around forever...won't be there anymore. You'll miss those lost moments.

  5. I love to add fresh cranberries to clear vases. You can add fresh flowers or float candles- they make pretty accents and centerpieces.

    Thanks!

  10. Don't put up your holiday lights with a glue gun. Sure, they stick there real nice, but the glue DOES NOT melt and let you pull the lights off easily, not without taking off a patch of stucco with them.

  11. I decorate with pinecones and candles. Thanks so much for the fantastic giveaway!

  12. I buy fresh flowers at the grocery store and mix them with cuttings from my yard for arrangements that would cost a lot from the florist at a fraction of the price.

  25. I decorate with holiday themed stuffed animals. I get them inexpensively during after Christmas sales, and store them all in a box for the rest of the year. They make for inexpensive and almost effortless decorating.

  27. I like to take old thick magazines & turn them into christmas trees. fold down the top corner inward, to the seam. all thru the mag, til its all folded. If its a thin mag, do same to another of same size & glue the 2 together, to make a very round full tree. then spray paint whatever color you want, and use glitter & all those lost earrings from your drawer you will never use again as decorations. =)

    ReplyDelete
  28. If you like traditional popcorn and cranberry garland, when you dismantle your tree, just put it into bags and deep freeze. You can use it for several years by doing this. My aunt gave me this tip!

  31. I found this great idea of making your own glitter ornament by taking clear glass ornaments, pouring a bit of pledge liquid cleaner in there, swish it around, pour the liquid back into the container and then pour your glitter in the ball ornament....neat idea!

    If you have cats and can't keep them off your live tree, try using a retro silver aluminum tree. That's what I use and the cats won't go near it; something about the way it feels on their paws. Also, I just love the vintage/retro Christmas style of holiday decorating.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I just love to decorate, so I try to think of fun new ideas to get the kids involved, like making homemade decorations.

  42. We do the popcorn around the tree, my daughter loves it. And it's pretty cheap to do. I like to hit up the dollar tree for decorations too, cheap, but still good!

  56. My mother made decorating the tree very exciting. My brother and I had a theme for our ornaments. Mine was angels, his was Santa. After Christmas, Mom would buy a few new ornaments in each theme and hide them in our ornament box. So next year, we would get to find brand new ornaments in our box. Early Christmas presents!

  68. My tip is to stock up on holiday decor when it goes on clearance in January. During the holiday season watch for deals on Christmas lights and get creative by making your own decorations using paper, bows, and lights. Try to find good solar power lights to save on your electric bill.
