  • Comments 1

clarkyI am simply amazed at the wonderful ideas that have come out of this giveaway! I need to hire some of you to decorate my house.  

Congratulations to for her homemade wreaths. These look like something you would buy at a high-end store and the most expensive one only cost $15 to make! See pictures of her wreaths here:

The final topic is HOLIDAY PARTY BEVERAGES. Remember we are all on a budget this Christmas so keep it frugal! (These can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic.)

These are all of the frugal decorating tips from yesterday:

shweetpotato: @DebtDiva Thats easy! :D You use my tutorial to make your own ornies with your kids, they will have so much fun.

CarmaSez: @debtdiva we plan to make birdseed wreaths to hang by ribbons from our trees. The birds will love it and we always enjoy more fun crafts. :)

CarmaSez: @debtdiva one more idea from my childhood: stencil holiday designs on windows with temporary paint by adding liquid detergent to craft paint.

CarmaSez: @debtdiva we iron crayon bits between 2 sheets of wax paper 2 melt & cut out holiday shapes to make "stained glass" decorations to hang.

PenelopePince: @DebtDiva For frugal decorating, we sometimes don't get a tree, but hang our ornaments and garlands around the house so it's still festive.

kfhudgens: @DebtDiva Kids love to get creative-with construction paper/scissors/glue/glitter/beads/paint,etc. Let the children decorate for the holidays!

nape9393: @debtdiva I have too much of everything. Clutter? NOT stylish. Unloading items on Ebay ($!) has spiffed up my home and paid for gifts.

JoodyC: @DebtDiva Check freecycle, Craigslist or have neighborhood decorations swap party - all new to you, friends & family & free! How frugal!

ThatOneCaveman: @DebtDiva Besides re-using our trad. decs., we're buying used from thrift shops and making our own wreaths with found pine cones and foliage.

KimbaASPTL: @DebtDiva Idea #3 Make it yourself! The first two wreaths were made for less than $10. The last one for $15.

KimbaASPTL: @DebtDiva Idea #2 Shop the after-X-mas sales for next year. I LOVE pulling out new Christmas stuff that I bought last year for 75-90% off.

KimbaASPTL: @DebtDiva Idea #1 Shop fall sales for things to use @ X-mas. I just bought 10 bags of pinecones for 75% off b/c they were labeled "fall".

wyndsong: @DebtDiva I left my answer for todays question on your Facebook group. This is a great contest! Thank you!!

WeareTHATfamily: @DebtDiva Enter as many blog contests as you can! I've won a nice gift for my hubby & child in the past month-srsly! Saving me money!

cutiebootycakes: @DebtDiva I left my answer to today's question on your FB fan page.
