This is a slide show of several decorations to make out of generally free, readily available materials. Cardboard, EPS foam, or styrofoam, paper, glue, usual stuff. The Christmas tree actually cost less than five dollars to make, should last for a very long time, and was lots of fun to make. I use a hotwire machine alot to cut letters, numbers and signs. Foam is easy to obtain, generally free. Many hours of work, but not much cost.
