Our Christmas parade is going to be a "Texas Christmas". I am trying to find ideas that will not cost a lot to do for a float in the parade. Does anyone have any ideas?

Get some really huge boxes, such as refrigerator boxes, and decorate like presents. Everything in TEXAS is bigger, you know. Your elves can be large sizes, Santa must be HUGE, etc.
Western everything and anything. Boots, hats, spurs, horses, longhorns, wranglers, chaps. Open praires, wind mills, barns, texas flag, bluebonnets etc. Just "paint" a picture so to speak.
I grew up in the panhandle and one year we decorated yucca bushes like christmas trees. You could get a lot of cactus' and yucca's and set them up on the float and have it be a really western type float. Or you could just go off of the them of 'Everything is bigger in Texas' and you could go to stores and get BIG boxes and wrap them like huge gifts....and then put a tree up with HUGE decorations... just do everything JUMBO! That would be really cute
I agree with the cactus tree! Also perhaps you could use a Stetson hat and boots - and a large belt buckle on Santa! Barbed wire can be spray painted bright red and gold to be used for garland! Just be careful that wire is SHARP!
