Since Christmas time is the most expensive period of the year, most people would like to find some tips to make holidays less pricy yet hilarious and comfortable. Decorating for Christmas can be rather costly if you buy all your ornaments and garlands. Fortunately, it is very simple to create your own, beautiful decorations on a tight budget. They’ll be even better than store bought ones, since each decoration will have a special memory attached to it.
1. Felt decorations
Felt is a cheap fabric that can look great if you know what you’re doing. Felt is very versatile and easy to work with. It appears in all colors and structures so you can easily choose the one that is most suitable for your craft. Cut out two sets of triangles, stars or any other shape. One shape should be slightly smaller so that it leaves a border when glued to the other shape. You can then add embellishments, letters to spell out “Merry Christmas” or anything else you like. Attach the felt shapes to a length of ribbon or string and hang them over the mantel or a doorway. Don’t overlook felt Christmas tree decorations and felt Christmas stockings.
