If you’re looking to update your holiday decor (without breaking the bank), you’ve come to the right place. Because there’s truly so much inventory to sort through when it comes to wintry accents, I turned to some of my favorite home experts on Instagram to see what they swear by each holiday season. Their picks all come in at under $100 each and are pretty darn stunning. Happy shopping!
1. A 50-pack of ornaments
“To create an easy layered look on your Christmas tree, start with garland or ribbon and then add a base layer of solid colored ornaments before adding your family’s sentimental and collected treasures. I love Target’s 50-count packages of basic ornaments, and I buy a few every year. They come in a variety of color combinations, ranging from sparkly neutrals to neons, they’re shatterproof, and they’re only $15!” — Kate Dreyer, blogger at Kate Decorates
Buy: Wondershop 50 ct 70mm Christmas Ornament Set, $15.00 at Target
8. A mix of taper and pillar candles
“Holiday decor doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Let the holidays be ‘lit’ with a big assortment of candles on a single surface. Whether that’s in your fireplace, on a dining table, or in my case, on a credenza, I love to vary height and size to create an organic arrangement that isn’t too fussy or overly complicated.” — Brady Tolbert, creative director at Bobby Berk and Instagrammer
Buy: Royal Imports Unscented Taper Candles, $15.99 from Amazon
12. Colorful string lights
“I’ve been in love with these playful, bubble-shaped string lights from CB2 for two holiday seasons now. They’re perfect if you want to inject just a tiny pop of color into a more neutral winter decor scene. I think they look just as sweet wrapped around a TV console as they would draped on a mantel.” — Lowe Saddler
