There are many ways to decorate your home on a budget and still have money left over for presents and Christmas dinner as well.

Ornaments can be picked up for a low price at dollar stores or you can search online for DIY, do it yourself, options for making the ornaments as well.
Bring the Smell Of Christmas
One of the best home decorating tips for the holidays has to be bringing the smell of Christmas into your home. You can find scented candles, wax cubes, and even cinnamon scented brooms and pine cones in your local dollar store for a great price. Whether it’s cinnamon, apple pie, or holly berry, bringing the scent of Christmas into your home is a great way to put everyone in a festive mood.
Bring Out Throws and Holiday Pillows
Nothing spells Christmas like cozy throws and holiday pillows scattered about the room. Make sure that your holiday pillows and throws pop with the colors of Christmas in greens, golds, silvers, and reds. Whether it’s a plaid throw or a holiday pillow that you sewed and added a snowman decoration too, you will feel festive and cozy wrapped up in a throw and sipping a mug of hot cocoa in front of the fire as Christmas approaches.

Waking up every morning and seeing a stack of wrapped gifts under the tree is an amazing feeling and can quickly bring back the wonder of being a child. There are a million and one ways that you can wrap gifts. You can even get creative by buying some cheap brown craft paper at the local dollar store, add your own touches for special wrapping paper that doesn’t break the bank but still adds holiday cheer to your home.
