If you’re looking for budget-friendly Christmas decorations ideal for mobile homes, you’ve come to the right place! Here, we provide a list of decorating ideas that include easy DIY projects and holiday displays that use free and readily available materials like fresh greenery, mason jars, and other common household items.
Getting your home to look festive doesn’t need to cost a fortune – with a little bit of creativity, some elbow grease, and basic art and craft supplies and tools, you can spruce up your place quickly and cheaply.
Our budget-friendly Christmas decor ideas will not only save you money but also help you reduce your environmental impact. After all, many of our DIY projects involve upcycling, recycling, and using everyday items that you probably already have on hand.
Use fresh garlands and other natural materials
Instead of spending on plastic greenery decors, why not use the real thing? If you’re lucky enough to live in a neighborhood with lots of green patches, try finding greens like pine, English holly, cedar, fir, and boxwood, which you can turn into beautiful garlands and wreaths.
To make your garlands and wreaths look more festive, add some red berries, dried orange slices, candy canes, Christmas balls, ribbons, or any decorations that you have on hand.
Other natural holiday decorations you can use include dried pine cones (which you can spray paint with silver or gold), cedar branches (or any sprigs), eucalyptus, and certain types of hedge bushes.
Light up your mantel
Want to make your mantel look like those you can find in some fancy mountain resorts? If your answer is yes, get your fairy lights and hang them above your mantel to achieve this cascading effect. Next, place some thick white candles of varying height to the other side to create more balance.
Tabletop Christmas trees
There are countless methods for this DIY project. One technique uses a styrofoam cone covered with a mismatched collection of Christmas decorations like balls, ribbons, garlands, and stars attached with hot glue.
Another easy DIY option is to use several clear plastic cones spray painted with clear adhesive paint and decorated with some confetti. Make sure that you spray their top with white paint to resemble a snow-covered tree.
But if you want something more gorgeous, your best bet is to use recycled plastic spoons to create miniaturized Christmas trees. Simply remove the “handle,” so you end up with “heads,” which you need to spray paint (consider using silver or green to make them look more festive) and hot glue to a cone-shaped cardboard paper. Finish it off by attaching a star to the top of the tree.
Oversized Christmas balls
You can paint several balloons to make them look like oversized Christmas balls. Next, cut an empty tissue roll in half, paint it with silver, and attach it to the top of a balloon so it would look like the metallic part you see in most Christmas balls.
You can hang these oversized Christmas balls to the spandrel (fyi, it’s the space beneath the stairs), along the entryway, in the living room, or any boring spots in your home.
Upcycled mason jars as candle holders
For this easy DIY project, you need these supplies: mason jars, red and green chalky paint, Christmas tree stencil, painter’s tape, scissors, paintbrushes, Epsom salt, and white bells on a string (these are optional).
Using painter’s tape, make a Christmas tree shape with the aid of a stencil. Stick it to the front of your mason jar before painting its entire body.
Once the paint is dry, peel off the painter’s tape, fill half of the mason jar with Epsom salt, place a candle, and tie a bell with string around its top to finish off this project.
