Quick and Budget-Friendly Ways to Festify your Existing Decor

For many Christmas is a magical time of the year. There are many things we all to love about the holiday season. For starters, we get to take a few days off from work, spend time with the family and possibly entertain guests. On the other hand, it can also be a stressful time, considering the extra care we need to take to add special touches to each little nook and cranny to bring the season to life. And the money it takes to get the house looking its best.

Fortunately, it is possible to take what is otherwise your ordinary home and transform it into something brighter and more inviting using inexpensive products available at craft stores to fit your home’s style and colour palette.

These décor ideas are so easy, they don’t even require DIY instructions! 

If you have things at home like jelly jars, pails, glass vases, and lanterns, you are all set to get decorating! All you might need to pick would be some new ribbon, some fresh or artificial winter greens, pinecones, and a candle or two. And even if you are starting from scratch, these are fun things that are budget-friendly that you can consider adding to your Christmas décor.

Fill Lanterns with Ornaments

Add a special festive touch to your lanterns by filling them up with some colourful Christmas balls. Use a fun Christmas-themed ribbon that fit your home’s style and top off with some adorned green picks and cones to top it off. When choosing ribbon, it is best to pick the wired ribbon to get the bow to hold in place

Make your Dining Chairs Holiday Statement Pieces

Want to make a statement around the dinner table and make your guests feel special? 

Add festive covers to your chairs or tie bows around your chairs topped with seasonal items like fresh greens or ornaments to give them an elegant touch and add that holiday vibe into your dining room.

Setup An Elegant Dining Table 

You can use layering on the table with various heights and proportions to give it that look. The most effective way of bringing out that feeling of warmth is to use candles, along with individual mini flower vases. But make sure that the decorative objects don’t obstruct the view; after all, a big part of celebrating the holidays is a comfortable conversation with family members across the table. 

Give Your Entrance that Holiday Vibe

Our tip here is to stay true to your style, and that may often require searching for what works in the home. Chalk Pen galvanized buckets and will with lit greenery to give your guests a joyful holiday feel the minute you step into your front door. Add ribbon and ornaments for a fuller and more festive look.

Burn Christmas Scented Candles 

We all know that we can evoke a certain feeling with a scent.  To me, nothing says Christmas more than cinnamon, cookie, pine and even eggnog scents. Every year our favourite candle brands will release festive scents to fill your home. Pick up a couple of couple of these, place them in jars, wine glasses topped with a bow and some greenery and enjoy the Christmas spirit with your own personalized scent. Add these to your mantel, your sideboard, or shelf to add that magical Christmas lighting to your home.
