Gorgeous DIY Holiday Decorations

December, 2, 2014

As I was shopping last weekend, I noticed how mega-expensive holiday décor could be. That’s what I call, the Rolls-Royce of decorating. If such extravagance would make you take out a loan, don’t despair. There’s no need to leave your home void of sparkle. Today, I’m divulging a DIY project guaranteed to deck the halls in style without obliterating your bank account.

The decorative panels in the above picture were created by buying sheer material from the fabric store, sewing vertical, three-to-five inch panels from top-to-bottom, and making loops above them big enough for a rod to slide through. LED lights were dropped into the panels. When you hang your drapes, find something festive to tie them back. With this easy-to-make decoration, your home can look like a Hollywood Christmas set on a mac ‘n cheese budget.

Over the weekend, I found these LED lights for about $15 a set.

And these butterflies were only about $10 each. I bought mine at Bellevue Nursery, but I’ve seen similar adornments at arts-and-craft stores. Happy holiday decorating!
