(Because it's super easy to blow your whole budget before you even get to your gift list.) That's why we came up with this list of holiday decor ideas that are big on cheer and totally budget friendly.

If there's one thing most of us have a lot of this time of year, it's wine! Between Thanksgiving and holiday dinner parties, it's easy to have lots of wine corks left over.

With a little help from The Ultimate Multi-Surface Adhesive, Santa might prefer hanging out by these trees instead!
We talk a lot about mason jars here at Aleene's, and that's because we love them. They are so versatile! Make yourself a set of snowy mason jars you can use as centerpieces, mantle decor and more. Aleene's True Snow is a holiday favorite for creating fluffy, snowy texture; then add twine, pinecones and other greenery for a holiday decor idea that makes you want to head outside and play in the snow once you're done crafting!
