Ready for the holidays? So are we! With a little imagination, you can give your home some holiday flair while stretching your holiday dollars. Here are cheap ways to deck your halls for the holidays.


If you’re like most of us, you have a few extra tree ornaments. If not, they are a cheap buy at a dollar store.

For instant holiday charm, fill clear vases or bowls with shiny, colorful ornaments or hang them from a chandelier, indoor plants, or other places in your home that might accommodate them.

Decorate with Christmas and Holiday Cards

Christmas and holiday cards are colorful, vibrant little pieces of art that come right to your mailbox. Display them on a mantel or attach them to a ribbon and string them across a wall or above a doorway.

When the holidays are over, collect your favorites and cut the front images out. Create a collage and frame it for a unique and beautiful piece of holiday artwork you can bring out year after year.
