So, I don’t usually post things like this, but I’ve always wanted to. I was inspired by one of my favourite bloggers, NewlyWeddedWurl’s recent Christmas decor related post and wanted to show off a few of my own (cheap!) decorations!
As a newly married 23-year-old still in university with only a part-time job, you can image my budget was…limited. However, thanks to both my parents and my in-laws, and thanks to Dollarama (the dollar store), I was able to start a nice little collection.
These are not all our pieces, just my favourites.
Side note: I don’t have a camera right now, so these pictures were all taken with my crappy cell. Please forgive the below-average quality.
Let’s start with our living room TV stand pieces:
Our first Christmas together!
Even after all this, I think my absolute favourite thing was making my own Christmas cards. I had never done this before, but I think they turned out really well! I’ve made…almost ten so far. But I’ll just post my favourites.
I got all of my supplies from the dollar store or I used craft supplies I already had around the house. The most expensive supply was the stock paper, which cost a little over $10.00.
Jeff and I were blessed to have so many of our decorations come from family. But I still realized that you can have a beautifully decorated home for CHEAP! The dollar store had a surprising amount of higher quality decor that did NOT look tacky. It just took some time to sniff them out.
