Our Christmas Home Decorated On A Budget

in , by Julie Nichols, December 13, 2013
Hi Friends welcome to my little Christmas home tour decorating on a budget

This is how I decorated our home for Christmas using what I already have & purchasing only two items:
 The wreath & Christmas tree
(the money I spent on the wreath went to a local charity)

The wreath was made by a youth group that my daughter is a part of.

All the decorations on the tree were collected over the years
 Douglas Fir Christmas Tree

The deacon bench is all decked out


This is the same wreath I made for our front door over the summer.
I took the hydrangeas off, added pine cones, and hung a Mercury glass Santa in the middle.

A basket of fresh greens & pine cones

The box on the coffee table is the same box I used to make this chalkboard sign

I filled it with my favorite magazines, candy, and Christmas photos of our daughter and our beloved dog Scout.

Cookies, Tea, and a Book

Our living room

Vintage crate wrapped in burlap.  

Garden inspired mantel

The stockings were made by my grandmother for my mother when she was a child. 

I created a garden-inspired mantel using my dried hydrangeas and fresh-cut pine and kept the artwork on the wall. 

I made the wreath using pine cones & hydrangeas

Sorry for some of the fuzzy pictures I was having a difficult time with the lighting on my camera  

Pom-Poms I made

Wishing you and your family a happy and safe Christmas

  1. The stockings are such wonderful treasures. I love the wicker baskets and wooden boxes you use in your decor...just perfect for showing off the greenery and beautiful arrangements. I'm using what I have this year or what I find at the thrift store. It's been a lot of fun! Happy weekend my friend!
