5 Easy and Cheap DIY Christmas Decorating Ideas
1. Galvanized bucket filled with large Pine cones and Holly branches
I found a galvanized bucket in my basement that apparently was my husband’s before we were married, so that was a great find- free! My mother-in-law brings me pine cones from Florida that I always use for Christmas decorating which is another freebie! I then just stuck a greenery pick I found in my basement that I bout years ago from a craft store and it only cost me about $3. This is a simple, easy and inexpensive porch decoration that could also be used inside. It would look great on my fireplace hearth but, my little boys would never stay out of it. Finding pine cones and sticks in the woods is a great activity to do with your kids too!
