If you’re looking for budget Christmas decorating ideas, then you’ve come to the right place. You may have just moved in to a new pad and not yet got your decorations, you may disagree with spending so much on festive accessories or you may just be plain broke – for all of the above, we have the budget answer. Decorating your home for Christmas doesn’t have to break the bank. Follow our purse-friendly designs this year for easy updates that are on budget (but look far from it!).
Natural fir will bring the scent of Christmas into your home. If you don’t have enough room for a full-sized tree in your living room, why not display small clippings instead. Pot them up in galvanised metal containers for contemporary, understated style, or wrap them in sisal for a rustic, country appearance. The beauty of these decorations is that they will last for the full festive period – just top up with a little water. Decorate your miniature tree with cinnamon and pine cones for an authentic look.
When the big day arrives, whip out your camera and create a photo display for your guests to enjoy. Encourage friends and family to snap away on their smartphones during the festivities, then print the pictures out immediately on a compact, portable printer. Alternatively, use a polaroid camera for an even more instant result. Pin the photos to lengths of ribbon with mini wooden pegs for an ever-growing gallery that tells the story of the day.
