Christmas Home Tours On a Budget!

Interested in Christmas home tours?? Check out my simple and inexpensive farmhouse decor along with many tutorials on making them for yourself!

Hi Friends!!  Have you been checking out all the Christmas home tours?  I know I get inspired and yet sometimes a bit envious of the amazing Christmas decor I see;) 

Since I have remodeled most of my house this past year, we had to figure out new places for our decor.  I thought I’d share a few pictures with you of what my house looks like all decked out for Christmas.

Disclaimer….I am not an interior designer by nature so finding the perfect spot does not come easily to me. 

Also, I only buy maybe one new thing a year so almost all of our Christmas decorations are hand me downs, past gifts, thrift store finds or DIY Christmas decor.

So you really don’t need to spend a lot of money to decorate your house for Christmas!  I would love to have a 12 foot King of Christmas tree but I don’t need it so we make do with what we have while I enter raffles to try to win one!!

Another confession… I love lights!  I’m honestly amazed every year when I plug my lights in that they still work after all these years! 

I’ll try to show you daylight pics and then night shots with the lights on.  Photos are a little more tricky at night!

Ok, here we go… First up is my entryway, dining room and living room area. 

For the DIY decor, I’ll add my links so you can check out the tutorials if you’d like! I made these scrabble tiles out of scrap wood.  So easy and cheap!  Click here to read scrabble tile wall decor tutorial!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I went crazy flocking things this year!

Here the flocked Christmas tree is with a few of the DIY Christmas ornaments we made at my ornament making craft party!

I grew up with garland wrapped around our staircases and hanging Hallmark ornaments in between every single spindle. 

That was my job during our 3 day decorating extravaganza!  They were hung on alternating red and green ribbons all the way up the stairs.

I have toned this tradition down a lot!  I wrap the garland around every 3-4 spindles and add an ornament at the same interval.  I flocked all of the garland this year too!

I love how this painted Nativity scene with lights came out.  It’s one of my favorites!

I also love painted mason jars with painted burlap on them.  Another easy and inexpensive decoration that can be used year-round!  Check out my tutorial on painting on burlap by clicking here!
