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 it can get stressful during the holidays, trying to do all the things that need to get done, 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 ideas to decorate our home for the holidays without spending any money. Not to say I don't buy anything, mind you. But I do try to decorate inside the house for Christmas using things we already have. Re-purposing household items is a great way to save money that can be used for gifts.


Here's some simple ways to instantly make your house warm and cozy this holiday season!


Candles 


Gather white pillar candles of different sizes on a large plate or tray to make a simple easy inexpensive holiday table centerpiece. Add berries and garland for a festive touch. The Dollar Tree is one of the best places to shop for candles, as well as trays.


Throws and Pillows


Cozy knitted throws and pillows on your couches will instantly add a welcoming warm touch to your home this winter. Save money by buying new pillow covers versus all new throw pillows for the couch.

Potpourri


DIY Holiday Potpourri is a wonderful way to make your home warm and inviting throughout the holidays. Try this easy Christmas potpourri.


Pine Cones


Pine cones are 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 stashed in the closets, take them out and put them around your living/family room.
