Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t have a nicely decorated house at Christmastime. Here are a few things I’ve done in my house with only items from Dollar Tree. For less than $20 I was able to fill in some gaps in our decor and create a really festive atmosphere.
Please note: Dollar Tree does have ornaments, but they’re not shatter proof, so I used some I had on hand from Home Goods. Prices reflect what I would have spent using Dollar Tree materials (5 ornaments to a pack).
I love this little touch. Thread some ribbon through a velvet bow, tie on a couple of ornaments, and curl the rest of the ribbon if desired. Total cost $3 (tinsel garland, +$1)
This festive decor could not be easier to make. Tie an ornament to both ends of a cut ribbon, drape over chandelier or fan with curled ribbon. Total cost $3 each
Hang tinsel around the edge of the mirror, and hang a Christmas placard in the center. Total cost $2
Hand tinsel around the edge and clip poinsettia on corners. Total cost $3
Thread 20-count lights through a tinsel wreath. Total cost $2
And remember, I’m sooooo not crafty. So if I can do this, anyone can!
