One of the easiest, least expensive ways you can decorate your house for Christmas, is with evergreen branches. I wait until 1-2 weeks before Christmas so that the branches won’t get too dry, and then I go out and cut the ends off of some large evergreens we have on our property or in trails nearby. I love the fresh smell and natural look of using real greenery.
