How to decorate your house on a budget this Christmas

It's time to deck the halls and get into the Christmas spirit with these affordable decorations!

Decorating your house is one of the best parts about Christmas, hands down. However, it can be a tricky not to splurge and go over-budget when wanting to deck your halls. Plus, no one wants to use their 20-year-old dingy decorations for the holiday season. So, we've gone and done you a solid and gathered the top-trending photos on Pinterest as well as a corresponding cheap dupe. Therefore, you're house is about to look Christmas AF as well as keeping your wallet happy.

1. Christmas tree

Okay, obviously you need a tree, but who said trees need to be a massive fuss? Rather than overwhelming it with ornaments that can be super-expensive, pre-lit Christmas trees take all the hassle out of setting up your house's decorative centrepiece.

Get the look with this Kmart Christmas Tree with built in lights!

2. Ornaments

Now, having ornaments might be enjoyable for some, which is fair enough, but purchasing a whole heap can break the bank fairly easily.

Good thing Myer has got you covered with these red, white, green and silver baubles or if you're into something a little different these holographic and rose gold baubles will surely tickle your fancy.

3. Christmas tree skirt

Why would you dress your Christmas tree up a little bit in a cute skirt? Because you can, that's why.

A good tree skirt can definitely last you a long time so here is this lovely rustic personalised burlap tree skirt to turn your tree from drab to fab! It's a lovely finishing touch.

4. Lights

Don't be the Grinch of your street! Embrace the holiday spirit and dress up your house with some Christmas lights!

Depending on how all-out you want to go, you could put up a couple simple Christmas window lights or check out these solar curtain lights that will make your electricity bill thank you.

5. Table

Whether or not you're doing Christmas day at your house or you simply enjoy getting into decorating, having a super-awesome Christmas table setting is key.

6. Advent calendar

Arguably the best part about Christmas is the advent calendar. Where else can you totally munch on some chocolate every day and not feel bad about it in the slightest? I mean... it's Christmas!

You can get this adorable rustic look for practically nothing with the wooden house advent calendar that not only looks good, but we're sure whatever is in it will taste good too!

7. Santa sign

If you don't put a Santa sign out, then how will the big man know where you are? Plus, everyone else may need a little bit of direction if they've had a bit too much eggnog, if you know that I mean.

This Christmas sign has got you completely covered, even when dealing with the standard Christmas Grinch!

8. Wreath

Wreaths are the first point of Christmas decoration when people come to visit. They're also one of the most overpriced Christmas decorations, because, really, it's just something you hang on your door.

However, in true holiday fashion we're getting around it with this affordable gold and champagne wreath bound to make your door prettier than ever.

9. Stockings

Christmas stockings are a fundamental decoration even if you don't really put anything in them.

So why not add a little personalised touch to your home with these personalised Christmas stockings to add a little bit of you and your family to your decorations. Plus, this way the kids won't be fighting about who owns what!

10. Stair wreaths

Look, these are pretty extra. I know. When it comes to Christmas, though, can you really ever be to extra? Hint: the answer is no.

So embrace your own winter wonderland with these snowy garland or this classic red and green garland to practically wrap your entire house in. You're welcome.
