The simplest and nicest holiday decorations are the ones you make yourself. You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars on fancy wreaths and centerpieces. Look around your house at items you already have and consider using more natural materials you can find in your backyard in your decorating scheme. Thrift stores are also great sources for some fun holiday decorations.
