Three Easy DIY Christmas Decorations that cost pennies to make

Everyone loves decorating up for Christmas, however getting your home ready for the big day can cost a small fortune. So I thought I'd share a couple of DIY decorations I've made for my home for just a few pennies...


Dried Orange Slices

I had a go at this for the first time this week, and was so surprised at how easy it was. I simply cut two oranges into thin slices, about 1cm thick, and baked them on a wire rack for 2-3 hours at 100c. Make sure you keep a close eye on them, as they can burn quite easily. The best thing about this is the smell that fills your house while they're in the oven - so festive!

Autumnal Centrepiece  

Last year I made a really simple display using cinnamon sticks, pine cones and orange slices - all things that can be picked up for a few pennies from your local supermarket, or even by going on a walk to your local woodland, for example. Here I've popped a wreath too around it to create more of a centrepiece.

Fill a Mason Jar with festive items

Another cheap and easy idea is to fill a mason or jam jar with water, drop in a tea light and some cranberries, and tie some pine cones around the top to create a perfect table decoration. The good thing about this one is you could literally fill it with anything you've got laying around, and could even adapt it for different seasons.
