After pine trees, birch trees are a Christmas wood classic. If you aren’t lucky enough to live near where birch grow, you can easily buy them at craft stores like Michaels. This makes a great base for your holiday table centerpiece.

The nice thing about this relatively easy Christmas décor DIY is that it’s as simple as sawing and painting the wood. The pallet is already held together for you. Add lights and a stand and you’re good to go.

Paper is obviously affordable. With a little bit of time, you can make something adorable for your home. This garland would also hang nicely over a window or around a Christmas tree.

13. Lattice Advent Calendar
Any home improvement store will carry affordable lattice. The muslin bags can be purchased at a craft store. They made the designs on the bags with paint and stamps. An adorable way to countdown the days till Christmas!
This Providence House Tip: I have four kiddos. We’ve done this every year and the kids really look forward to each morning when they can open up the next bag. For $20 at the dollar store I’ve found enough small candies and trinkets to fill up each bag with four little prizes. A little bit of effort goes a long way to make amazing memories.
