If you are looking for quick, fun , easy , and cheap ways to decorate your house this holiday….. then you have come to the right place! As a busy working Momma with two toddlers and a newborn, time and money is precious. I wanted to share a few ways that I was able to Ho Ho Ho my home without taking up too much time, and without breaking the bank.
Happy Holidays from the Kipphut Family!
1. Make Your Own Garland.
We made stars out of pipe cleaners and tied them to string. You could tie anything to string. Hand made snowflakes to store bought shapes and objects.
2. Wrap it up!
Decorating with Gift Wrap….We wrapped the inside of the faux chalkboard fireplace in the girl’s room. You can use it to wrap over doors, framed wall art, to cover the tops of tables, or even cut into shapes and put on the wall!
3. Put a Wreath on it!
I bought this real Boxwood Wreath for under $10.00 from Trader Joe’s. I added an ornament from Target and some Ribbon ( left over from my wedding years ago, awwwww) and TaDaa! A special wreath for your front door.
If you are an advanced crafter, you could even make your own wreaths. You could use store bought items to make a wreath or found and foraged items from your back yard! I used real Boxwood to make mini Boxwood wreaths for all of our windows and some walls. It definitely took longer to make these than I wanted but the end result was totally worth it. I also threw in a cute little photo of my son Ethan.
4. No Gift Wrap ? No Problem!
Wrap gifts with paper items around your home. I used a Trader Joe’s paper grocery bag and used/old “stendig ” calendar pages. Top them off with something fun , like some free greenery from your yard to some store bought pom-poms and then you got yourself some fun gifts from re-purposed items and paper!
5. Throw it up! Some garland that is.
Real or fake…. it doesn’t matter. If you want to get fancy, wrap it in lights! Also, enjoy a pic of some cuties.
6.Christmas Past ….
Decorate by framing or displaying past Holiday photos or new photos if you have them already. They can even just be winter photos. I hope you all enjoyed these little tips. Wishing you and yours a very happy Holiday Season! Happy Crafting! LOVE , The Kipphuts
