Decorating your apartment for the holiday season is something that many of us look forward to each year. Filling our homes with holiday cheer is a very fun experience and something that doesn’t have to cost much money if you follow these helpful tips.
Decorative Bows and Ribbon Add Pops of Color
Add some color throughout your apartment by using ribbons; you can tie them around things like chairs and wreaths, as well as make decorative bows. You can pick up colorful ribbons for pretty cheap, as many dollar stores will have them in stock, especially around the holiday season.
Create Your Own Wreaths
Wreaths can get quite expensive when you buy them from a store, but the good news is that you can make your own for about $20. The easiest way to make your own wreath is to buy a medium-sized artificial wreath and decorate it yourself. You can use the ribbon that you bought earlier, along with a few plastic ornaments and other holiday-themed items.
Harness the Power of Scent
Smell is one of our most powerful senses, and you can use it to get into the holiday spirit. Getting some holiday-themed candles to fill your apartment will serve two purposes: they will make your house smell wonderful and act as great decorations!
Get Your Table Décor from Nature
You can create stunning centerpieces for your dining table with things you can find on a hike! Pinecones and interesting sticks make for a beautiful centerpiece when arranged nicely. If it is warm enough where you live, you may also be able to pick some flowers to add to the mix as well.
Spread Ornaments Throughout Your Apartment
If you have any leftover ornaments that didn’t fit on your tree, you can easily use them in other places throughout your apartment! You can add them to the wreaths you made, fill a decorative bowl with them, or hang them from the garland that you wrap around your balcony railing or staircase railing.
Upcycle Christmas Cards
If you save your Christmas cards, you can display them throughout your apartment. You can use this year’s cards and previous cards to add to bookshelves or string them up in a decorative display that you and your guests will love!
