Forget the stress of holiday spending, it's time to deck the halls! Fortunately, it doesn’t take much money to conjure the holiday season in your home. All you need is a little creativity and a bit of help from Mother Nature. Here are a handful of holiday decor tips that you can do on a dime.

Why buy a boring off the shelf wreath when you can make your own gorgeous, inexpensive wreath using nature's bounty? We love the look of twig wreaths: they are something you can easily create after a morning hike. They can be left plain or adorned with foraged pinecones, berries, or evergreens. Always think outside the box: many ground covers, such as ivy and mountain laurel will stay green all winter long. They will add a beautiful touch to your home and are perfect for celebrating the holiday season. Learn how here.
Let There Be Light

Christmas lights are not just for trimming your house or tree. Take those extra strands and string them from your windows, drape them from the ceiling, gather, or coil them on a table top. Really anywhere you use them will create a festive holiday feel.

Often overlooked, but always ready for display, the window sill is the perfect little spot to collect evergreen and display in repurposed glass jars. Plus, it offers the outdoors as a beautiful backdrop.
White Candles Everywhere
From tea lights or tapers, we all seem to have numerous white candles lying around. Grouped together these twinkling lights create instant holiday cheer.

Even bare branches will do. Strung with lights or hung with cardboard stars or paper snowflakes, sculptural branches evoke the quiet magic of the holiday season.
