How To Decorate with Traditional Holiday Decor On A Budget
The weather outside is frightful and I’ve had a chill in my bones for weeks now. It must be Christmas time! This year, I’m dedicated to decorating my home in a cheerful and seasonal aesthetic but without all the headaches of over-the-top decor. I don’t have a lot of spare time. I don’t have a lot of spare money. So I’m doing my best to incorporate our existing decor into our (new-to-us) home.
Okay, so it’s not quite Thanksgiving yet but it’s definitely time to start thinking about Christmas decor. This year’s goal: Spend as little as possible. The holiday season is always the time of year when we imagine our wallets draining. In fact, the biggest excuse people give for not spending money is “Christmas is coming up”. It’s like a given that we’re all going to be broken on January 1st. But it doesn’t have to be that way. I’ve partnered with five other bloggers who share my sentiment to bring you our top wallet-friendly Christmas ideas. Mine? It’s free and easy but it looks like a million bucks!
If you’ve ever received a gift from me, you know I taking wrapping very seriously. I love a good cloth ribbon and coordinated paper but even more, I like to create gift tags that can be used as Christmas tree ornaments or activities for children. Here are my favorite tags I’m giving out to my family members this year.
I love Halloween. Have I made that point clear yet? It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Sao every year when a new batch of fun Halloween decorations premieres, I am super excited to see what I might be able to snatch up (if I wait until November 1st for the clearance). This year, my particular obsession was a mirror and skeleton set from Grandin Road. The snag? It’s $500! No clearance sale will ever make that affordable. So I decided to make my own. He’s not as sinister as the original, but I think he’s great nonetheless.
