Budget-Friendly Christmas Decor with Candles
I like to create new holiday decor with what I have. DIY Christmas decorating using past holiday decor and incorporating a few DIY ideas to make something look new with a new spin is one of my favorite ways to decorate my home. Make it budget-friendly and I’m tickled pink. Store-bought is great, but adding your own touch brings out your personality.

DIY Christmas Decorating Ideas
Not all DIY Christmas decorating ideas are budget-friendly, but most here on Today’s Creative Life are.
I don’t like to spend a lot of money on decor items that I’m only using a few weeks a year. I do have a few items that I absolutely love and know I’ll be using them for years to come, but I still keep budget in mind.
Here are a few of my favorites that take little skill or time to make, but make a big impact.
- Gingerbread Star Garland – this was so easy and fun to make. I’ve used it for 2 years so far and it looks so cute. But if I get tired of it in the next few years, I won’t have to feel bad or wasteful to pass it on or recycle.
- DIY Snowflake Pillow – I always have extra pillow covers around and I also had these wool pom poms. So dang cute! It’s great for winter decor too.
- Dried Orange Slices – This classic is making a comeback! I have reused them for 3 years now. You can make a garland, use on gift wrap, hang on the tree, add to a cedar garland, or even a wreath.
- DIY Cedar Cranberry Luminaries – These have been featured all over the internet and even in a magazine. This goes to show that the simplest ideas are often the best. You literally place cedar (or any greens) in a jar of water, add a few cranberries and float a small votive on top. It’s gorgeous!
Home Decorating for Christmas
Every year I say I’m not going to overdo my holiday decorating. This year I almost made that promise because I brought out all my holiday pillows and throws, and some candles. The tree was already up and the house looked pretty much decorated. I realized I hadn’t even opened one Christmas tote from under the house yet. Less is more sometimes.
I did end up opening the totes because we wanted to decorate the tree, but I’m happy to say I didn’t use all the home-decorating stuff. My secret is always adding live cedar garland, lots of fairy lights, candles, and holiday pillows and throws.
Here’s to keeping it simple and thinking outside the box. I hope you use my punch letter labels for Christmas decor with candles.
