If you’re like many people who celebrate the Christmas holiday it can be a very special time of year. For me, Christmas ties back to my childhood memories and it evokes powerful memories for me. I’m away from home right now working on health issues. Because of this I don’t have access to all my Christmas decor. I have a beautiful large bedroom in my daughters home and because I spend a lot of time there I wanted my room to envelope that feeling Christmas gives me without spending a lot of money. I needed a budget Christmas decorating room makeover. With my daughter’s help and the local Dollar store I created that.  Check out our Christmas Category for many unique inexpensive ways to celebrate the holiday!

Two of the items below have full tutorials you can click on. These are the Winter Wonderland Paper Ceiling Decor and the DIY Hanging Wall Christmas Tree.

As you can see our kitty Auggie loves Christmas as much as I do. Ü

Some Supplies Used

The Makeover

The first stop was the Dollar Store. Transform any room using our budget Christmas decorating room makeover ideas using 'mostly' items from the dollar store! Includes awesome projects!

I did purchase a few things from Walmart. The two items on the left are wax melts and potpourri sticks. Both are perfect for getting the Christmas smell which is so important to the whole feeling.  I’ve always had a nativity up at Christmas so I splurged on this one. The nativity cost me $7.50 at Walmart.

Growing up in Arizona we didn’t have a fireplace so my parents purchased a cardboard one and I LOVED it.  You can actually see photos of that fireplace from my youth on this post. While in the Dollar Store I saw this plastic wall fireplace. I knew it was a bit cheesy but would serve my purpose. Transform any room using our budget Christmas decorating room makeover ideas using 'mostly' items from the dollar store! Includes awesome projects!
