Christmas decorating doesn’t have to be a bank-breaking event. There are
plenty of ways to create a warm and festive environment with limited
resources. Begin by pulling out all the family favorites. Homemade
ornaments made throughout the years are far more special than anything
you could buy in the store. Display them on your Christmas tree or on top
of your mantel; perhaps line them up on your mantel by year as a creative
and nostalgic timeline of Christmases past.

When it comes to your Christmas tree, Christmas decorating can be as
simple or ornate as your tastes allow. But either way, it doesn’t have to
be an expensive endeavor. Use popcorn garland to adorn your tree; this
can be a fantastic project to do with kids. Depending on their ages they
can help pop and string their own fancy garland. Dried fruit slices also
look beautiful for Christmas decorating.

For Christmas decorating around your home, the ideas are endless. Head
outside to collect pine cones – another great activity for the kids –
then paint and spray with glitter to construct your own wreath or mantel
garland. Or make garland with strips of colored paper or material. Loop
the strips through each other and staple together. You can even paint and
string small pasta tubes for a unique rope of garland. Suspended from the
garland you can attach Christmas cards that you receive throughout the
season or holiday pictures from past and present.

Or take your outdoor treasures and fill baskets with pine cones, and
branches. Tie ribbons around the basket and add candles of varying
heights into the center. You can create a beautiful centerpiece for any
holiday table or a beautiful showpiece for other Christmas decorating.

For further ideas on Christmas decorating log on to the Internet. There
are virtually thousands of low-cost, creative ideas for Christmas
decorating. Many are projects you can do with children as you all prepare
for the holiday season ahead.

Christmas decorating is only as limited as your imagination. Let the kid
in you come out this holiday season and see where your imagination takes
you.
