I took these photos at our local library, where Sherry did a brilliant job of decorating with boughs of Cedar and Pine cut from the trees in her backyard. Free is as frugal as it gets! If you don’t have a big back yard filled with evergreens, check with your local Lowes, Home Depot or Christmas Tree lot. Most of them give away the branches that are trimmed off the trees for free.
The bows, ornaments and Christmas “Picks” (ie those spikes w/pinecones, berries etc) are items that can be purchased once, then reused year after year. Plan ahead for next year and pick some of those items up for a song in the post holiday sales.
Enjoy-I hope they provide some inspiration!
