Search Pinterest for free printables, or follow this tutorial for cheat's calligraphy, and write your own inspirational message.

The only additional cost is a frame.

7. Make a living wreath.

This succulent wreath is easy to make, but can be expensive if you use lots of plants. Try your local flower market at the end of the day, or check eBay for bargains. You can make a smaller one to keep the costs down.

11. Candy cane vodka.

This is ultra easy and delicious. Simply break up the candy canes and pour the crumbles into a bottle of vodka. Shake it every day until they have dissolved, then strain into a fancy bottle.

13. Hanging hallway baskets.

All you need for this is string and baskets. Asian supermarkets have ultra-cheap bamboo steamers if you want to re-create the look completely.
