Cheap & Easy Christmas Ornaments

You don't need to splurge on fancy Christmas ornaments to have a gorgeous tree. Here are some simple, easy, and inexpensive ideas for decorating your Christmas tree on a budget:

Tie Christmas-themed/colored ribbons to the tree branches or wrap ribbon around the tree like a garland. Michael's has good sales on ribbon.

Make paper chains out of Christmas-colored/themed scrapbook paper.

Cut snowflakes out of paper or fabric.

Hang candy canes on the tree branches. Or make fake candy canes out of red and white pipe cleaners twisted together.

Make fancy stars out of leftover wrapping paper. (Just make them smaller so they fit on the tree.)

Let your kids make handmade ornaments out of paper and glitter, pine cones, popsicle sticks, etc.
