Christmas decorating is a complex topic with multiple magazines, websites,and brands dedicated to the topic. Many tend to feel that to achieve beautiful Christmas decor, they need to spend thousands of pounds and purchase very elaborate items for their home.

On the contrary, beautiful Christmas décor can be achieved with inexpensive and minimal items. It often boils down to making use of the items at your disposal in a creative manner.

If you want to decorate your home for less this Christmas, consider some of the following ideas:

1.       Baubles and bowls: Christmas baubles are traditionally used on the Christmas tree itself and come in a variety of colors and designs.

To put a twist on baubles, feel free to put them in bowls and arrange bowls at central points in the house. This includes window sills, the center of tables and high surfaces that can be seen easily by others.

The bowls in question should preferably be transparent and can vary in the types of containers. For example, large wine glasses can be used as a substitute and put on dining tables.

Baubles can also be coordinated according to colors and design. Baubles of similar or striking colors should be paired together to follow your overall color scheme.

2.       Lights: Christmas fairy lights are usually hung around the house from various points. They can be used in an alternative way by being put in containers.

For example, fairly lights can be put in a glass bowl and turned on. The lights will then be reflected across the room and give a whimsical effect.

Lights can also be hung on non-traditional places such as the hems of table clothes and around chairs. Also, consider wrapping them around standing objects in your home such as lamps.

3.       Hanging Christmas cards: Most people tend to display their Christmas cards uprights on surfaces like shelves and tables.

A good way to reimagine the use of Christmas cards is to hang them instead. Simply poke holes in the cards, pass a colored string through them and hang them up on ceiling lights, fans and other high surfaces in your home.

This is very inexpensive as Christmas Greeting cards can easily be purchased from retailers such as The Works. You can also use cards that are given to you over the holidays.

It is also quite easy to set up as it only requires string and cards.

4.       Illuminated trees: People typicallycut down their own Christmas trees or buy artificial ones from stores. These are usually made of plastic with attached artificial green or white leaves.

A unique way to decorate your home for Christmas and save the time needed to decorate the tree is to purchase an illuminated tree. An illuminated tree is one that is made up entirely of small colored fairly lights that give off different lights displays.

You can change the display settings on a daily basis and also do not have to do much in the way of decorating or set up.
