Cheap Centerpiece

Three Easy & Inexpensive Ways To Decorate For Christmas

  1. Inexpensive centerpieces – Natural Christmas decorations such as pine cones are an effective and inexpensive way to add a seasonal touch. You can easily find pine cones at local parks or they can be bought cheaply at garden centres. You can choose the option of spraying the pine cones with metallic paint or simply place them in bowl with sprigs of holly. Seasonal unshelled nuts such as walnuts, hazelnuts and pecans can also make a great centerpiece when placed in a bowl.
  2. Getting the kids involved – Getting creative with your Christmas tree decorations is a great way to get your kids involved in the fun. Tree decorations can include home-made gingerbread men and you can also shape these biscuits into snowmen or angels before baking. If you have old Christmas cards with seasonal illustrations then these can be cut into a variety of shapes and hung from the tree. Ribbons are another inexpensive way to decorate the tree and can be shaped into bows for an eye-catching effect.
  3. Don’t forget the candy – If you want to get your kids interested in making Christmas decorations then break out the candy. Lollies and candy canes are traditional tree ornaments but consider little net bags filled with jelly beans and gum drops that can be hung from the branches. You can actually create baubles from candy such as jelly beans by sticking them together with edible sugar glue and hanging them from the tree. Let the kid’s imagination take over!
