With the cost-of-living biting at everyone’s heels this year you may be wondering how to decorate your bedroom for Christmas on a budget. We firmly believe that you shouldn’t have to blow the budget to create a magical space at Christmas time. Therefore, we’ve put our heads together at Beds on Legs to bring you the best tips on how to decorate your bedroom for Christmas on a budget.
A twig Christmas tree is the perfect festive addition for a bedroom. Indeed, all you need is a little space on a wall to let your creative juices flow. Start by gathering fallen branches from the garden or nearby public spaces. Remember you will need varying sized twigs as you will be arranging them in a triangle formation. When the twigs are dry, arrange them in a tree like shape and simply secure them with garden twine. Don’t forget to add some bling with left over tree decorations then simply secure to your chosen wall.
Go foraging in your local park or woodland and gather up fallen pine cones for Christmas decorations. If you’re particularly creative, you could try incorporating them into a wreath or a garland. Or for a simple Christmas decoration you can place a collection in a glass bowl with some tinsel or fairy lights.
If you want to decorate your bedroom for Christmas on a budget, then try making some paper chains. Indeed, paper chains are ever so simple to make and if you’ve got little ones then it’s great to get them involved. Plus it’s a fantastic way of using up those awkward bits of left over wrapping paper! You can read how to make paper chains here
Nothing quite says Christmas like a fresh sprinkling of white snow. We can’t guarantee snow on the big day itself so why not fake it with a can of snow spray. Fake snow is ideal on windows and can be easily cleaned off when the festive season is over. If you're feeling confident then you can try going freestyle. However, if you prefer you can make some stencils to get that perfect finish.
Jam jars are the perfect receptacle for upcycling. You can jazz them up with some eco glitter or fake snow and pop in tea lights for some ambient lighting. Placed in a small group, they can make a great centrepiece on a dining or coffee table.
