Halloween and Thanksgiving are almost here, with Christmas just around the corner, and our favorite DIY channels are overflowing with festive tutorials. If you’re thinking of embarking on your own DIY adventure this holiday season, keep it on the budget with these three tips.

Use What You Have

You shouldn’t use DIY solely to make something new, but also as a way of getting rid of something old. Before going shopping for your DIY project, try to come up with creative ways to utilize unnecessary things you already have at home.

Go Thrift Shopping

Before heading to your favorite home décor chain, check out some thrift stores in your local area. In addition to being a more sustainable way of shopping, you’ll also end up finding cheaper items that aren’t available anywhere else.

Buy or DIY?

DIY projects aren’t always worth it, especially if you don’t have a lot of free time on your hands. If the items you want to make on your own can be bought for cheap, save yourself some time and use it for some more exciting DIY projects.
