Decorating On A Budget
When you move into a new home, you likely want to make the decor unique to your style and the space comfortable to live in. However, not everyone has a tremendous amount of money to put toward decorating. This is also the case when it comes to decking the halls for holidays and special occasions. If you need to decorate, but your funds are a little tight, consider these budget-friendly tips that can help your home go from drab to fab!
The most important thing you can do when it comes to creating decor for your home that looks expensive, but was actually very cost effective, is to always keep an eye out for a crafting project. If you're driving down the road and pass a yard sale, take a few minutes to stop by and see if there's anything you can spruce up into a new masterpiece. A little spray paint goes a long way on frames, candle holders and even old lamps. It's also quite simple to cover old stools and pillows with some fabric.
While it might not be as fun to buy all of your Christmas decorations once it is over, you can save a lot of money if you buy holiday decorations when they go on sale. Once you do a little bargain shopping throughout the year, you will have all the holiday decorations you will need from now on, and for a fraction of the cost. Consider decorating with things from nature like holly branches for Christmas and daffodils for Easter.
For birthdays and other special occasions
When it comes to decorating for birthdays, the Super Bowl, anniversaries and other special occasions, start by looking around the house. You may have some old arts and crafts supplies you can use to make your own streamers or party hats. Cut up construction paper or newspaper to make your own fun confetti.
