Dollar Store {Holiday} Decorating!


You can find many great items for Christmas decor at your local dollar store that that wont break the bank.  Details at

Who said that decorating your home had to cost a fortune to look like a million bucks? You can find many great items at your local dollar store that can make your home beautiful and won’t break the bank.

I was reading Melissa’s blog, 320 Sycamore, when I fell in love with her dollar store version of Williams Sonoma’s glass hurricane! Click here to see what Melissa’s Dollar Store knock off!

Mellisa’s post inspired me to make a run to my dollar store (ok, who are we kidding? like I NEED a reason to go to the Dollar store?! LOL) My Dollar Tree did not have the tall white skinny candles, so I had to come up with a few other idea’s – but really, the ideas of how to fill these are limitless!!

Take a look! Here’s what I picked up at Dollar Tree (E-6000 I got at Walmart)

See the glass candle stick? I glued them to some of the glass candle holders like Melissa did!

First I filled them with the ornaments that I bought for another project (you’ll just have to wait for that one!) then tied some holiday ribbon on each one and……..voila!


Then I filled them with candy! You can buy those big candy cane sticks at Dollar Tree 2 for a $1!
I LOVE how these turned out!! I may have to go back for more!

It will be so fun to change these up for different seasons and holidays. Thanks for the inspiration Melissa!

    Soooo pretty! I, too, am a HUGE fan of $ store decorating – it’s all in the mix – inexpensive pieces w/ the ‘finer’ pieces is the trick! Your displays are lovely.
    I made our family’s advent calendar this year by using a $store table top tree and filling 24 tiny numbered envelopes w/ $store treasures to ‘trim’ the advent tree!

    I always get so inspired when I see projects like this and then when I get to it, I can never find anything at the Dollartree store. I think I will have to try again because your projects is so beautiful and is really inspiring me to do something new this year.
    Thank you for sharing at Holly Bloggy.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
