The months of November and December are prime months for decorating your apartment with beautiful and cozy decorations. However, you don’t want your attractive decorations to hurt your wallet. Fortunately, there are several budget-friendly ways you can fill your apartment with holiday spirit. Follow the tips below to create memorable and dazzling holiday decorations for any apartment.
Use Decorative Bows
With just a few rolls of ribbon, you can create festive bows to place around your apartment. These budget-friendly holiday decorations can go around dining room chairs, doorknobs, or wreaths. You have endless options: colorful, sparkly, patterned, and more that can add some shine to your apartment decor.
Make Your Own Wreaths
You can make your own wreath for much less than you would spend on a premade wreath. With your own wreath, you won’t just save money but create something completely unique. You can make this a fun family activity and have kids select ribbon, ornaments, fake berries, or other small decorations that you can place on a plain, artificial wreath.
Holiday decorations aren’t just things like bows and ornaments. You can also find special candles to fill your apartment with the smells of autumn and winter. These cozy scents come in many varieties and a wide range of beautiful containers.
Use Natural Table Decor
Your holiday decorations don’t need to be elaborate or expensive. You can find affordable holiday-themed plates, bowls, glasses, and tablecloths at your local craft or home decor stores. If you want to make a DIY centerpiece, you can use candles, a bowl of attractive ornaments, and a few natural elements like twigs, pinecones, or pine needles. The key is to get creative with the materials you already have easy access to.
Use Ornaments Throughout Your Apartment
If you have spare ornaments that don’t fit on your tree, you can place them throughout your apartment for added sparkle and shine. Placing ornaments in a large bowl, on wreaths, or on garlands can make a great impression.
Create Edible Centerpieces
If you live with someone who has a sweet tooth, these holiday decorations will be especially appealing. You can fill glass jars with Christmas candy—like candy canes or red and green mints—and tie a ribbon around the top. Place the jars around the apartment for added color and easy access to delicious sweet treats.
Recycle Greeting Cards
You can take Christmas and other holiday cards you have received this year or from years past and place them around your apartment. You can even string them along a countertop or mantle. These cards will not only add lots of charm, but they will add a personalized touch to your apartment’s holiday decorations.
