Here are some budget-friendly ideas for creating beautiful holiday decorations for your home, holiday parties or a winter wedding.

Holiday Decor

Centerpiece 1

Dress up lanterns for the holidays with evergreen swags around the base. I use battery-operated tea lights in my lanterns and burned down candles for safety and less mess.

Centerpieces 2 and 3

Add a few sprigs of fake or real evergreens and some ornaments in various shapes, textures and sizes to a wooden box, drawer or wire basket. So simple and so dang cute!

Decoration 4

Dress up your wreath hanger a little differently this year with large ornaments dangling down from ribbons. Add a festive bow with some sparkle weaved in.

Decoration 5

Don’t forget tabletops when decorating. Place glitter/beaded cones in different sizes next to each other to create dimension. I added gold netting and a couple ornaments — fast and easy!

Money-Saving Tips

Use what you have to create cheap holiday decorations! Give lanterns and baskets new life by spray-painting them a festive color for the holidays. Grab plastic ornaments from the dollar store or other discount stores. They look great in vases or cylinders and you’ll never know they are plastic.
