Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year. It’s also a time when we decorate our homes with lights, trees, wreaths, garlands, ornaments, and more.
But what if you don’t have the budget to buy these items?
You can still create an amazing holiday look without spending a lot of money. In this article, I’ll show you how to do just that.
Maybe you are tired of last year’s holiday decor and want to change things up. Or you want to add some fresh new ideas to this year’s Christmas aesthetic.

You get the idea.
Maybe you found a beautiful piece of fabric with colors that you are drawn to. Or maybe your inspiration is from artwork, an antique Christmas ornament, or an era.
Use the inspiration you find to guide how you decorate in 2023. Your vibe will drive how you select ornaments, garland, ribbon, greenery, flowers, and other organic elements.
Try pinning or screenshotting pictures on your phone so you can refer to them and shop for similar items.
Whether you thrift your finds or buy new, having a starting point of the look you want to achieve will drive what you shop for.

How to Spruce Up Your Christmas Aesthetics for 2024
To me, Christmas is one of the most beautiful times of the year. You can’t beat the decorations, the food, the music, the parties, and the overall festive vibe.
But what if you can’t afford to spend a fortune on gifts and decorations?
Don’t worry – there are plenty of inexpensive ways to celebrate the season. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Shop Your Home
Before shopping online or in stores, take note of what you have in storage that can be incorporated with your 2024 Christmas aesthetic. Repurpose items you have. Because we don’t have to buy new things to update our decorating style.
Find Christmas Aesthetics at Thrift Stores and Flea Markets
If you need to buy things, hit the local thrift store, flea market or garage sale to score a deal. It’s amazing how you can find the coolest items for a song. And the thrifted items found will be unique instead of mass-produced.
I love looking for interesting items that I can decorate with plants and flowers for the season. Here are a few items to look out for while you are thrifting or antiquing around.
- Vintage crocks and jugs
- Old toolbox, crates, and baskets
- Galvanized buckets
- Dough bowls
- Milkglass and Jadeite

Shop Your Landscape
One of the best parts about decorating for the holidays is cutting fresh winter greens and finding organic elements in the garden.
From fresh evergreens to pinecones and berries, you can find a lot of FREE holiday decor, like winter planters, in the yard.
Here is a list of items to forage for this year:
- Pine Branches
- Blue Spruces
- Weeping evergreen branches
- Sedum Autumn Joy or Joe Pye Weed Dried Seed heads
Think Outside the Box
Decorate with items not intended for use. Grab that old birdcage, pot up some greens, and add some festive ribbon with other organic elements to it. Or use a vintage galvanized metal bucket to use as a Christmas tree base.
Use an old tablecloth as a tree skirt. Remember that vintage stroller I found at the thrift store?
I flipped it into a planter for my front porch with spring flowers. For my Christmas aesthetic, I’ll be potting it up with fresh greens from the gardens.
