christmasdecorationson-a-budget

I would start decorating for Christmas in August if my husband let me. He doesn’t so I win another way… we tend to keep up our decorations till February! Seriously, I’m a little in love with Christmas.

We don’t go all out, or even fancy at all really.  Most of our decorations are handmade ornaments and other simple things the girls and I have made through the years.  I’m all about having Christmas joy without the fear of the New Year bills.  So here are some simple decorations you can do on a budget.  Most will only cost a few dollars or are things you already have around the house!

The skies the limit on trees really!  Grab old books, ribbon, anything you can find can become a tree…
