Affordable Christmas Decorations
When it comes to holiday decorating, it can be hard to know how to fully decorate for the holidays without breaking the bank — especially when you start looking at all of the outdoor lighting options you have. But decorating doesn’t have to be that expensive! Read through some of our suggestions and you’ll be amazed at the simple things you can do with some Christmas lights and a few other materials.
Use Simple Christmas Light Strands
It might sound simple, but Christmas light strands can be a great way to decorate. Outside, instead of investing in pricer Christmas decorations, use your light strands to decorate what you have in your yard. From benches and bushes to trees, use your lights to decorate anything you can find.
Inside, you can do something similar. If you don’t have a wide collection of holiday decorations, just fill your home with some red- and green-colored lights. If you have a staircase, wrap a strand around that banister. Lights also look great draped around a fireplace or wrapped around a bookshelf.
Just a few light strands can make an impact both inside and out!
Shop Sales and After-Christmas Clearance
If you’re looking for an affordable way to find Christmas lights and decorations, look for any sales. At The Christmas Light Emporium, we have a selection of products on sale that will help you save this year.
Beyond that, you can always plan in advance. When Christmas is over this year, watch for everything to go on clearance. That way, you can get new products for next Christmas at a fraction of the price.
Start Really Simple
Decorating for Christmas doesn’t have to break the bank. While you might like the appeal of big or over-the-top Christmas decorations, there is something to be said for starting small. In fact, many people build their selection of Christmas lights and decorations over the years. This year, start with some smaller, affordable pieces and slowly add to them over the years.
At The Christmas Light Emporium, we are careful to offer both over-the-top decorations and small but cute decorations. Take a look at decorations like our simple LED foldable Moravian stars, lit ornaments, LED foldable snowflakes, or even a simple holiday wreath you can decorate. There are plenty of ways to bring Christmas to your home!
Grab a Large Pack of Ornaments
While individual ornaments can add up quickly, most home decor stores will also get big boxes of generic round ornaments. While they might not seem like much, they are great for decorating on a budget.
If you’ve hung light strands around your home, sporadically hang ornaments from the strands to make them pop even more. Beyond that, you can put ornaments on your mantle, set them in a tray on your coffee table, or put them in a glass bowl in your dining room. If you’re creating a table centerpiece with your ornaments, bunch up a strand of lights and add that for an even greater display!
Make Your Own Christmas Decorations
While some DIY might be hard to recreate, that doesn’t mean you should give up on decorating this year. If you have a simple holiday wreath, take a strand of Christmas lights and wrap it around. Then decorate that wreath with any ribbons or extra ornaments you have laying around.
What about the Christmas tree? In most Christmas displays, the tree is the focal point. It is where Santa leaves the presents after all! But what if you don’t have a tree? All you need is a strand of lights. From there, find something you can use as a tree. From stacking books in a tree shape against the walls to finding a ladder you don’t need for the next month, drape Christmas lights, add some extra ornaments, and voilà!
Feeling more crafty? You can take an art easel, or prop three thin, long sticks together. Wrap burlap around the wood from top to bottom and fill with lights. You have your own burlap Christmas tree!
