How to make Easy Christmas decorations on a budget is something many people are already ask me about so…
…I’m going to show you my method for easy Christmas decorations made from a very unlikely resource – and it may surprise you!
My method for how to make easy Christmas decorations is using white bread – yes bread – but of course you can’t eat them!
So your main material is cheap, its easy to obtain for most people and the decorations are surprisingly durable if you make and finish them according to my method.
I’ve had mine for years and they are still going strong.
They are also pretty easy for children to make, under supervision.
I made a video on this back in 2016 and you can see that by clicking here. But first I would recommend reading on to find out what you will need to follow along with the tutorial.
If you wonder how to make easy Christmas decorations and have not come up with any ideas yet, do watch the video and have a go.
When you watch the video, you will need the following items to follow along:
- A loaf of soft white bread (the kind no one wants to eat!)
- A selection of Christmas themed cookie cutters
- Acrylic metallic paint in Christmas colors
- Paint and glue brushes
- Sprinkle on glitter and/or items such as tiny stick-on craft gems
- Christmas table sprinkles (as seen on the gingerbread men decorations above).
- Thick brush on glaze/sealer such as Triple Thick
- Some thin ribbon or pretty string
Don’t worry if you can’t get any of these things locally. I have these supplies in my Amazon store, except for the bread of course.
