Decorating for Christmas.... on the cheap!

I am not one to spend a lot of money on Christmas decorations.  Don't get me wrong- we decorate- I just prefer to find free things in nature!

Making swags is easy.  Wire, boughs, outdoor red bows and woods (or neighbors property when they are not home during the day- ahhh the benefits of being a stay at home mom!)

We put the same snowman flag up each year.  Kids still think it great.   I also stuff the little sleigh and flower pot with white pine, holly & other types of pine I find around the outside of the house.  I am lucky we have a giant holly bush!

Festive and Free!


  1. So cute! And in your new blog header, are those Fisher Price little people next to the snowmen?

  2. Looking good! Glad to see the light up snowman still lives!

  3. Looks great!!!! I LOVE the new banner - how perfect is that?!

  4. I love the new header, Holly! Also, the pic of Abby is so stinkin cute. See you for tree-shopping (sorry, costs money) this weekend!
