Budget Friendly Decor Ideas For Your Best Christmas Ever


Decorating seasonally is hard, trying to do it on a budget is even harder, and keeping it chic? Well, that’s just out of the equation. Usually, if you’re decorating on a budget it means doing DIY (which can be cute) or getting cheap, cheerful and not necessarily the decor that will go with your room!

Don’t worry – these amazing decor choices will help you take your holiday decor to the next level!


Work around your room.

To achieve this look you don’t need to drastically redecorate. Choose tones and add a few subtle accents. The Star-Shaped Glass Tray from H&M will look good on any low coffee table with a couple of strategically placed ornaments. Target has a great range of glass trees that are a similar cone shape to the one in the photograph and look chic enough to bring any room together. Top it all off with a great faux fur throw from H&M!


Incorporate natural details.

Adding fresh wintery details doesn’t have to mean cutting down a whole tree. Pine cones and wreaths are a great way to embrace this season’s winter, this wreath from Target is super delicate and pretty adding a few strategically placed Ponderosa Pinecones from Amazon or a bay leaf and pinecone garland from Amazon to upgrade your space without making it look cheap or outdated.


Embrace your space.

Dreamy Whites

Yes, we chose this picture just for the cute dog! But also, this is the least tacky attempt at Christmas decorating we’ve ever seen. A minimalist, twinkling tree with a nice Christmas tree skirt, like this one from Amazon. Adding a H&M home white velvet cushion to the mix really upgrades the on-trend seasonal feel. If you feel like you’re missing the Christmassy vibe, a string of lantern lights from Urban Outfitters will really upgrade the feeling!
