Happy December everyone! Today I thought I'd show you how I've decorated my room and house at university on a student budget.. Most of the items I picked up are from Poundland or ASDA, and nothing cost me more than £2. I can't link to every single item as some are from last year, but just have a look round the shops and Christmas Markets, and don't forget that fairy lights and some heart or star shaped decorations can be used all year round. You don't have to spend a fortune to get that festive feeling.

 Christmas sign, wreath & Merry Christmas sign - Poundland | Gingerbread House Kit - ASDA

Merry Christmas gold banner - £1 ASDA | White heart door wreath - Poundland | Heart pegs to hang my Christmas cards on (and photos in the New Year) - £2 ASDA | Gold tree - Poundland

 A sparkly jacket or dress can be a striking wall feature | Gold tree - 6 for £1 Poundland

NOEL sign, window stickers, red reindeer & candles - Poundland | Fairy lights look pretty all year round - £1.50 Primark

 Yankee Christmas Eve Candle £8 | Red reindeer - £1 for 3 Poundland

 Christmas tree - £10 ASDA | Angels & bells - Christmas markets | Snowflakes & reindeers - ASDA

Have you decorated your room yet? Will you be looking around for cheap decorations - or perhaps making your own? Let me know what you decide to do.
