If you like to go all-out on holiday decorating, you probably have a vision for your home décor this year. However, decorating can be expensive, especially if you’re buying new decorations. There are plenty of creative ways to make holiday decorating cheap! First, hit a dollar store. Often you can find glass vases, frames, and holiday cards, all for – you guessed it – a dollar! From there, you can paint and craft until those items are exactly what you want. Second, use natural décor. Branches, pinecones, and winter flowers can spruce up your apartment or house. Lastly – use wrapping paper. Wrap your picture frames like gifts and add a bow. You can also use a long roll of wrapping paper as a table runner, cut out shapes and make paper ornaments, and even make hanging paper lanterns. Look for DIYs online and get crafting! While you spend time with loved ones, you should take this time to examine your finance and insurance policies as a family.
