Decorate for Christmas with these Fun, Easy, Cheap Ideas

Nothing makes a new house feel more like “home” than sparkling lights and beautiful, hand-crafted Christmas decorations. Try out some of these easy (and cheap) Christmas decoration ideas and turn your home into a gorgeous winter wonderland.

Ornaments Make Beautiful Christmas Décor

If you have more ornaments than will fit on your tree (or if you pick some up from a nearby dollar store), you have an easy, low-cost Christmas decoration! They look great inside glass containers. You can vary the colors, or stick to a color palette, like this one in silver and red. Take a tip from Dandelions and Dust Bunnies and “cheat” by filling the container with items like a toilet paper roll so you don’t need as many ornaments. No one will know!

Tips from the toy organization expert

I don’t claim to be an expert at many things, but I know toys. I can tell you just about anything you need to know about the latest Skylander® product to hit the market, which Lego® set has which character, and I can bake a cake in an Easy Bake Oven like a champ. I’m not a toy collector per se, but I do have 7 kids (and 6 are under 10), so I’ll proudly wear the “toy expert” badge.

Confession time. I am not the neatest, tidiest person. This fault of mine has bothered those closest to me my entire life, from my mother, to my saintly sweet college roommate, and now my husband. Their cry has always been the same, “Brittney, you have too much stuff and nowhere to put it!” So, I started reading some home organizing blogs years ago. Now, I'm not a pro at this yet, but my home is much more organized than my dorm room or the first one-bedroom apartment my husband and I shared. I'm learning so much from these great organizing blogs, and hope they'll be helpful for you, too.

It happens to professionals and amateurs alike. So, where do you go to get your artistic juices flowing once again? We did a little research and found some great websites where you’ll find home design inspiration.
