5 Easy Ways To Cozy Up Your Home For Christmas on a Budget

Ready or not, the holiday season is upon us. And even though I get stressed trying to accomplish all the things that need to get done during the holidays, it is my absolute most favorite time of the year. And getting our house ready for Christmas is something I look forward to all year!

*Disclosure* If you are new here, you should know that I am always trying (and usually not succeeding) to stick to a budget.

So I try to find easy diy ways to make our house look great and feel cozy for the holidays without spending any money. Not to say I don't buy anything, mind you. I do. But the majority of my decorating comes from things we already have around our house already.

These are some of my favorite tips on how to decorate your living room for Christmas without buying anything, if possible.


Nothing cozies up a room faster than lightly scented candles. Try using white pillar candles of different sizes on a large plate or tray as a simple but charming table centerpiece.

Throws and Pillows

Pine Cones

Pine cones make wonderful cheap DIY decorations for the holidays. Go for a walk and collect as many as you can. Place them in baskets, vases, bowls and place them throughout your home.

Holiday Books, Games and Puzzles

A totally free way to add in some cozy holiday decorating is by checking out holiday themed books from the library. Put a pile of two or three books on your living room table or side tables.

If you have any puzzles or card games lounging inside closets, take them out and put them around your living/family room.

But, there is more. Lots More.
