Unique Christmas Decorations On A Budget

Updated on March 21, 2011

Christmas wrapping paper can be used for much more than just covering up your Christmas packages. Some of the most unique Christmas decorations can be made from Christmas wrapping paper.

Here are a few ideas:


Christmas Decorations

Using a piece of poster paper or stiff cardboard, cut out a variety of shapes - circles, squares, triangles, rectangles, etc. Get your favorite Christmas wrap or several of your favorite Christmas wraps and cut out the shapes using your cardboard patterns. Glue the Christmas wrap to each side of the cardboard. Punch a hole in the top, put on a nice ribbon, and hang your Christmas decoration.

Christmas Table Runner

Place a white tablecloth on your table. Get your favorite Christmas wrap and stretch it across your table. Mark the midpoint of the wrap and draw a line down the center. Cut down the center, get the two pieces, and run them down the center as a Christmas table runner. Place a Christmas arrangement in the center and decorate with foliage and fruit. This makes a cheap Christmas table runner and adds a festive touch to your Christmas table.

Christmas Card Or Invitation

For a simple Christmas invitation or card, get a plain pre-cut card or make your own using construction paper. Cover the front with Christmas wrap and add a "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays" with a gold glitter pen or marker. Sign your name or write your note and mail.

Christmas Window Decorations

Use a gold or silver wrap and cut out stars. Place in your front windows with tape. Use a green-based wrap to cut out Christmas trees and place in your windows. Use a brown based or craft wrap to cut out gingerbread men and hang in your front window.

The possibilities with Christmas wrap are endless and can be used to make inexpensive and attractive unique Christmas decorations for those who are cost-conscious and use a little imagination and creativity.
