Decorating for the holidays can be quite expensive if you do not take the time to think outside of the box when it comes to your holiday decorating. There are many great things that can be found at a pawn shop that you can use to create custom decorations for your home this holiday season. The following guide provides you with a few ideas for decorations you can make with things found at a pawn shop.
Picture frames of all shapes and sizes can be found in pawn shops. All of the frames can be painted with spray paint to customize them for the holiday seasons. Round frames can be secured with zip ties and then painted white to create a cute snowman to hang from the wall or the front door. Square or rectangular frames can be used to create holiday décor by removing the glass and hot gluing Christmas tree balls to the ends of some holiday ribbon and then securing the ribbon to the back of the frames with the glue. When you hang the frames, the balls will hang down from the center of the frame and create a 3D decoration.
Glass vases can be filled with different holiday candies to create an eye-catching display on a bookshelf or mantle. The glass can be spray painted with frost paint to make them look like they are covered in snow to add texture and depth to a holiday display. The vases can also be filled with fake snow and small holiday decorations, such as houses or tiny statutes can be displayed in them to create a winter centerpiece on a table in your home.
Large platters can be found at the pawn shop with ease. The platters can be spray painted a lovely gold or silver color, depending on the color scheme you are trying to create. The platters can then be filled with Christmas balls to for display on a mantle. Holiday messages can be painted on the holiday platter so that it can then be hung on the wall as a piece of art during the holiday season.
These quick and easy decorations allow you to create a unique look in your home without breaking your bank right before the holidays. You can keep them the way they are to use year after year or make adjustments to them each year to change the way your home looks each holiday season.
