How To Save On The Cheapest Christmas Decorations

Shopping at the Dollar Store is easy, there are things to stay away from and things you should only buy there. But shopping at Craft Stores is slightly more strategic.

Since NOW is the Holiday season, JoAnn’s and Michael’s both will have fantastic sales to get you to “deck the halls” with everything Christmasy. You need to stay focused on your couponing principles of combining great sales, along with excellent coupons so your wallet doesn’t get away from you and you spend more than you should’ve.

Both JoAnn’s and Michael’s typically put coupons out in a flyer found in the Sunday Newspaper, or you can also sign up for their emails and get on their mailing list in order for them to send you coupons directly to your mailbox.

And don’t forget their app! That usually has a coupon or two that could save you up to 60% Off!

Paper Snow Flakes

This is a SUPER FUN project to do with the kids… although, it might be more for older kids and have the younger kids make slightly easier ones because this one requires the use of a Xacto knife.

It is essentially cutting up a piece of paper into the shape of a snowflake that has the Star Wars and Frozen and Guardian of the Galaxy characters on them. it is SO COOL and my boys totally approved that it is super neat… oh and the patterns are totally FREE!

Other Uses For Paper Snowflakes:

  • Using a tension curtain rod, hang some snowflakes in your windows for a winter scene effect
  • Lay down a solid color dining tablecloth, then lay a bunch of paper snowflakes on top. Protect them with a clear table cover over the top of them. Then hang more snowflakes from your dining room light or ceiling creating a winter wonderland.
  • Create a snowflake art display by hanging a bare branch on the wall or ceiling. Then, hang a grouping of snowflakes from the branch with fishing line.

Salt Dough Ornaments & Garland

This salt dough recipe is a great way to keep the kids busy and out of your hair if you’re trying to bake or even wrap up some presents in private.These truly rank as one of the cheapest Christmas decorations you can ever make!

Salt Dough Supplies:

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Salt
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 tsp. Cream of Tartar (optional)
  • 6 Tbsp. Cinnamon (optional for extra fall smells)
  • Rolling pin
  • Assorted Christmas cookie cutters (or butter knife for cutting shapes)
  • Parchment paper/wax paper
  • String/Twine/Yarn
  • Drinking straw (to make the hole for hanging)

Additional Supplies:

  • Paint
  • Glitter
  • Paintbrushes
  • Other Christmas decorations to add to the shapes likes glue and pom-poms, sequins, etc.

Salt Dough Directions:

Combine 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt and approximately half a cup of water.

Some recipes require a teaspoon of Cream of Tartar, but this is optional. (If you have it on hand, great; if not, don’t worry about running out to the store to buy it.)

Mix the ingredients together well and use a rolling pin to make the dough flat. Flatten approximately to 1/2″ thick.

Use your Christmas cookie cutters to cut out shapes. You could also freehand your creation with a butter knife or use printed shapes and a knife if you don’t have cookie cutters.

Salt Dough Ideas:

Salt Dough Ornaments: Poke a little hole in the top while the dough is raw with the straw. This will be used for hanging.

Salt Dough Garland: If you are going to use the shapes for a garland, make sure to put two holes on either side of the shape for stringing through twine, yarn or string.

After poking the holes for stringing, set the shapes on wax paper or parchment paper and let it air dry for a few days (flipping it over several times). You can also place the shapes on a cookie sheet and bake at 150* until golden brown and completely dry for 1-2 hours.  Time and duration will depend on the thickness and size of the ornaments.

Once they are dry, have fun painting your easy DIY Christmas decoration crafts and hang them up when you are finished.

Hot Glue Snowflakes

If you can use a glue gun, you can make these pretty snowflakes! This is how to make cheap DIY Christmas decorations with just your glue gun and some glitter glue sticks!

Note: If you have OCD or are a perfectionist – this is NOT the project for you. This is a more of a not-so-perfect snowflake looking project!

Also, you  must lay the glue down then add the glitter. Once you have added the glitter, the glue doesn’t want to stick to itself.

Caution: A glue gun can get very hot. Only have an adult use the glue gun. Kids can help with the glitter!

Supplies:

  • Hot glue gun
  • Hot glue sticks or Hot glue glitter sticks
  • Tape
  • Parchment Paper
  • Paper towel
  • Scissors
  • Printed snowflake designs (find some on google images)
  • Glitter (also needed craft glue, paintbrush)

Hot Glue Snowflake Directions:

  1. Start by printing several images of some printed snowflake designs. If the lines are not strong enough lines to see underneath the wax paper, you may need to trace over the lines with a bold black marker. Note: Strong bold lines with fewer intricacies are better.
  2. Cut off a piece of parchment paper and tape down the corners to your table, making sure the paper is taught and slide the snowflake design underneath. If you are going to add glitter to your snowflakes, you may want to do several of these designs and have them set up as the glitter will take time to dry.
  3. Warm up your glue gun on low temp and follow the pattern of the snowflake design. Don’t worry about the glue strings. You can trim them when they are dry.
  4. Now while the hot glue is still wet do you want to add your glitter. They will not only need to dry but you will need to add a coat of regular craft glue to seal the glitter to the snowflake. Or you will continue getting glitter everywhere because the glitter does not sink into the glue and stay!
  5. Once the snowflakes have dried, cut off the glue strings and make the edges of the snowflakes neat and even.
  6. To attach the snowflakes to the window, add a dot of hot glue to the back of the snowflake and then attach them to the window. To remove them later, you will just need to scrape off the excess glue off the window with your fingernail.
  7. You can also hang the snowflakes in the window, on your tree or anywhere around the house with fishing line.

Cupcake Liner Angels: Take a 1″ wood circle and draw a face on the circle with markers. Take two different colors of cupcake liners, cut them both in half, then take one half of each liner and cut it in half again. Then, take the one full half of the cupcake liner and fold it in half, so that each side shows the color or printed side of the liner. Glue the point of the liner to the back of the circle (this makes the body of the angel so make sure it is placed correctly). Then take the two quarter liner pieces and glue the points to the wood circle (these make the wings). Cut the pipe cleaner in half and shape a halo with one end and glue the other end to the back of the wood circle. Make a hanger out of the fishing line and you have an angel!

Book Beauties

If you have some old books that are NOT worth anything, then you can definitely make some beautiful and some of the cheapest Christmas decorations this year!

Or, head to your local thrift store for some deals. The more “vintage” and discolored the better!

Supplies:

  • Books
  • Scissors
  • Decorative Edge Scissors
  • Glue or double stick tape
  • Glitter glue (optional)
  • Fishing line or twine

Nostalgic Book Groupings: First, come up with several sayings, Christmas carol titles or Santa’s Reindeer names that you love. Wrap the book covers with the white or brown kraft paper (like you used to cover your school books). With your stamps and ink, stamp the names of your sayings or Christmas Carols on the bindings of the books. Add twine to group them together. Add another greenery or ribbon. Then, add them to a display or add an LED candle to the top.

Book Trees: Take the cover off the book and count out 30 pages. Cut these pages apart from the rest of the book. You will need two sections of 30 pages to complete a tree. Starting with the first section of pages, fold the top corner down to the center fold. Fold in the right side fold that you just made and line it up with the glued spine. Then cut off the bottom that hangs off the edge of the pages from the folds you just made or just fold it under the last fold. Do this step to each of the pages on both sets of pages. Glue the two sets of pages together forming a tree. Add glitter or anything else to make these book trees great!

Sheet Music Trees: Cut the sheet music into 2″ strips. Then cut the strip into fringe about 1/2″ wide fringe into the strip – not cutting all the way through.

Fluff the fringe when you are done.

Page Ornaments: Take a page from a book and fold it accordion style. Fold the accordion in half and then cut the ends into a curve. Repeat this step on a second page. Tie both pages together in the center. Glue the two pages together where they meet to form a circle.

Printed Garland: Cut shapes out of the pages like hearts, stars or any other Christmas shapes. Use your Christmas cookie cutters for easy tracing! Staple, tape or glue the shapes to a long piece of twine. Hang and love this easy garland!

Coffee Filter Backdrop or Photo Booth Backdrop: If you want your display to be colored or to have a gradient color, you will need to dye them first before making the backdrop. Once you have dyed the filters, fold a filter in half and then in thirds to form sort of a triangle. Figure out how long you want the backdrop to be, so if you are hanging them from the ceiling or wall, measure that length and cut a piece of fishing line that length plus another foot. Thread the fishing line through the needle and tie a knot at the end of the fishing line. Whatever color you want to be at the bottom of your backdrop, start with that color first. With your needle, poke it through the point of the coffee filter and tie a knot one inch or two up, then thread the next coffee filter through and tie another knot up about an inch or two and continue till you have the line full of coffee filters. You can have a more staggered look by leaving a couple of inches in between a group of filters for a more informal look. You will need about 20 strings full to create a full backdrop for pictures. Add hanging shiny ornaments, Christmas lights and more to make this the best Christmas backdrop ever!

Coffee Filter Gift Bow: Did you run out of bows for your packages? Take about 5-10 coffee filters and fold them into quarters, unfold and them fluff the edges a little. Take one filter, open it up and form the filter over your pointy finger. Add a dab of hot glue (carefully!) and add the next filter. Repeat till all of the filters are glued together. Take the bottom where it was formed on your finger and squish together forming a point and then fold that point over to the side. Tape the bow to your package and fluff!

Love flowers during the holidays? Make some of these beautiful coffee filter flowers to add to a display!

Smooth out any rough edges with sandpaper. Drill two holes near the top of the ornament for hanging on opposite sides. Stain or paint the ornament, then add your saying with stencils Add ribbon or wire for hanging.

Snowman Shorties: From a 2″x4″ or 1″x4″, cut simple rectangle shapes. The size of the snowman depends on how big you want them to be. For better painting, smooth out the wood with sandpaper.
