Hey my loves,
in today’s blog post I am going to talk about decorating your appartment on a budget. As a College student, money is tight and you do not have as much money as you would like to spend on decorations, so in order to get your Christmas dream you have to get creative.
I have created a Pinterest board with some ideas!
I’m also sharing one DIY with you, as well as some tips and tricks that I like to use in order to make my living room a magical place.
DIY Window Ornaments
All you need for this DIY are some different sizes and shapes of ornaments. I went into two of my local dollar stores and picket up two different kind of silver ornaments, as well a some star ornaments. You will also need some gift wrapping ribbons. I found these colorful ones on Amazon: Ribbons
Now you just need to measure out the ribbon into different lengths, so that you get sort of like a teardrop effect and put the ribbon trough the holes from the ornaments and tie them around your curtain rail in the order you want. All in all I think I’ve spent about 8 bucks on my entire window creation and I love it so much.
Tips & Tricks
I personally shop my decorations in local dollar stores and at cheaper alternative stores, so that I save a couple of bucks and do no get tempted to buy expensive decor. I also make sure to check out any sale actions of my local stores. But, I think for the most magical decoration lightning and music is the key. So, I always make sure to dig out my fairy lights, candles and listen to a lot of Christmas music. My current favorite playlist is the pre-made one by Spotify: Christmas Hits.
What are some of your decorations tips? Tell me in the comments, I would love to know.
I wish you all a wonderful day!
