These are my top tips for inexpensive Christmas decor this year – some of which cost practically nothing!
5 Tips for Inexpensive Christmas Decor
1 – Chalkboards
Anyone how has been on Pinterest in the last few years probably has at least one chalkboard in their home! Does anyone else out there feel like chalk paint has been added to everything under the sun? I’m still totally OK with that, for the record!
I am by no means a chalk lettering or chalk art expert. But, I did manage to add this little “Merry + Bright” wreath to the chalkboard in out kitchen. PS – I DIYed this large chalkboard for under $20… no power tools required!
2 – Natural Elements + Greenery
Now is the time to shop your yard or local garden center. I recently picked up some greenery, and went all out.
Simple evergreen sprigs covered my sideboard and mantel.
This little birch stump served as the perfect stand for my favorite Ikea faux houseplant.
3 – Burlap
I bought a bolt of burlap nearly 3 years ago, and It’s still going strong. I recently used burlap to make a tree skirt and garland for my Dollar store tree. See all of the details here.
4 – Paper
Craft paper can be used creatively in home decor, too! I covered my kitchen gallery wall in plain brown craft paper and gift wrap for a fun Christmas gift wrap gallery wall.
5 – Shop the Dollar Store
For my simple centerpiece, I shopped the dollar store and combined tips 2, 3, and 4 together! Say, what?!? I took some leftover boxwood (after I made three little wreaths) and popped them into little dollar store vases wrapped in burlap and wrapping paper. Oh, any you may recognize those little vases from my Thanksgiving tablescape this year!
And have you seen my Christmas tree this year? I decorated it all for under $20! See all of my Dollar Store Christmas Decorating Tips here.
