Quick and Affordable Holiday Decorating

People tend to decorate their homes more extensively during the holidays than at any other time of year. Fortunately, there are hundreds of ways to make your home look beautiful for the holidays without breaking the bank. If you’re on a budget, consider these quick and affordable holiday project ideas:

Homemade Ornaments

While buying ornaments in the store can be fun, nothing brings the family together more for the holidays than a fun activity for the whole group. Allowing each family member to craft an ornament provides the opportunity for personalization and individual expression. For a creative idea that costs only $2 per ornament, try taking a walk through your neighborhood and collecting some pinecones or pine needles to stuff inside glass ornaments.

Creative Handmade Wreaths

The good thing about designing your own wreath is that there are countless ways to customize it to fit your preference and style. Consider adding berry sprigs, glittered pinecones, and faux flowers to your wreath, and then cover it with faux snow to give your house an elegant look and feel. Wreaths are also a great way to show off your new Provia door!

Attractive Gift-Wrapping and Holiday Card Display

Spice up the appeal of gifts by wrapping them in creative papers, both glossy and matte, and enhancing them with ribbons, bows, and candy canes on the outside. Consider making holiday cards using leftover wrapping paper and displaying blank canvases on the wall and tying them like gift packages with red and green ribbons.

There are plenty of fun, affordable, creative ways to add meaning to your holiday decorating this season. Don’t limit yourself to the ideas in the store. Think outside the box. Who knows, maybe you’ll start a new holiday tradition.
