You already know you can save money with homemade Christmas gifts and Christmas appetizers you make yourself, but your Christmas decorations don't have to break the bank either. Use these homemade ideas for holiday decorating on the cheap.
* Create an Advent calendar
Start by spraying an old frame with a metallic base, says By Stephanie Lynn. Create tags using an online template (see link) for these DIY Christmas decorations. Mix in gold, silver, and neutral ornaments to tie the whole calendar together.
* Go for a bow wreath
Creating this simple, festive wreath from Design Improvised is easy and won't drain your wallet! Get this look by simply hot gluing bows of various colors to a Styrofoam wreath. It only takes about 20 minutes to complete.
* Make your own mistletoe
Felt, a fabric pencil, pearl embellishments, red ribbon and a hot glue gun are all you need for these cute DIY Christmas decorations! Cut out your felt mistletoe using a template provided and arrange pearls how you like. Tie with ribbon and hang.
* Redo your wreath
Stack wreaths and give classic winter door decor a pick-me-up. Purchase three wreaths in different sizes, hang on top of each other and add accessories.
