if you're on a tight budget this holiday, don't spend it on decorations...especially when we found some great ideas on apartmenttherepy.com., offers a few fabulous diy decorating ideas to celebrate the holidays. this is their top six favorite ideas that won't hit your wallet too hard (if at all, depending on how many decorations you've collected from previous years!)...
we don't have a fireplace, so i like this idea a lot! find a branch, spray paint it white (or leave it natural), and hang it in near the tree. this woodsy "mantel" can not only hang stockings, but it can also be decorated further by twining holiday lights around it.
this year we only have a garland strung under the tv with lights on it, our wreath on the front door, and some silver ornament hanging in my kitchen window from silver ribbon. no tree this year as we moved into a smaller house and the dogs like to attack the ornaments. maybe next year, they will be calmer so we can get a tree!
