What would Christmas be without some tasty sweets? This Christmas decoration idea is inspired by all things sweet and delicious that make the Christmas season so great. To create the candy garland, just paint ping-pong or small Styrofoam balls in various bright candy colors, then string them together with a needle and thread. To create the candy cane-inspired polka-dot planters, just cut out circles from a sheet of red vinyl material and hot glue them to a tin planter. Finish the look by scattering some faux gifts wrapped in candy cane-print gift wrap nearby your entryway.
While silly, modern and cool Christmas decorations are all well and good, some of us want to eschew anything cartoonish or childish, preferring the look of old-fashioned, Victorian era Christmas house decorations.

Avoid tinsel or brightly colored decorations, instead opting for ribbons, bulbs and stars in romantic colors like burgundy and gold. The finished look is utterly classical and timeless, perfect for those who prefer their holiday decorations to be on the sophisticated side.

Hey, all you Christmas tree lovers, this one is for you! This year, I have been obsessed with tabletop trees. They are classy and add the perfect seasonal décor touch to any room. However they can be expensive, which is why I decided to make my own for just a few dollars. I headed to my local Dollar Tree and picked up a few artificial tabletop trees, some faux flowers and greenery, a tree topper, and a basket for just $1 each. Using white spray paint I had at home, I frosted the trees to make them appear as though they were dusted with snow. I topped them off with the faux flowers and greeney and set them in a basket with white tissue paper and voila… festive décor on a budget!
