Between presents, parties, and dinners, you’ll already be spending quite a few pockets full of dough this holiday season, so why add decorations to the list? Instead of throwing more cash on the pile, try an inexpensive and eco-friendly solution – look to your local thrift shop for unique ways to transform unexpected items into holiday cheer. An old metal rake, for example, becomes a sweet Santa door greeter, a chipped tea set makes for cozy candles, and a collection of glass salt shakers can turn into a fleet of sparkling tree ornaments. Before you shop for new (and costly!) supplies to deck your halls, take a peek at these 21 brilliant holiday decorations made from thrift store finds by Hometalk bloggers.
