I love to browse thrift stores, $ stores, and the Dollar Tree. I love to find fun little items that I might be able to make better. I like to use those items as holidy décor.
Here are a few examples:
I bought this wreath at a thrift store for $3. Because it was such a nice wreath I knew it would make a great base to add to.
I added the ornaments, and other fun bling to the wreath to give it some excitement.
My grandma had a set of these carolers when I was a child. She actually made them. Her set was much bigger.
I stumbled upon this set at a thrift store for $2. I bought it to remind me of her. This is one of my favorite Christmas treasures.
One year, I couldn’t afford to buy enough wreaths for my front door. I bought some cheap ones at Walmart for $2. I wanted them a little fuller, so the little wreath from the dollar tree added to another made a much fuller wreath. I also found the small gold balls at the dollar tree to add to the wreath with a burlap ribbon, and a dollar ornament.
They look really cute lined across my windows.
This sweet little pillow was also a thrift store find, and makes such a great addition to my porch.
I wanted to add my kids names to our red stocking. I remembered I picked up these chalkboard tags in the $ spot at Target.
They make a great addition to the stockings.
This sweet banner is made out of some dollar store doilies, hot glue, yarn, and glitter stickers I had laying around.
Stella even made it for me.
I love frames on my trees.
The cheapest way to put frames on your trees is to buy them at thrift stores and paint them.
So that is what I did in this case.
I also found some old vintage ribbon in a bag at the local thrift store.
It came in handy when I wanted some ribbon around my candles.
I love this little bottle brush tree display I have on my piano.
To fill in the gaps, I picked up some trees found at the dollar tree.
We also used these trees to make the snow globes. We made them by using $ store trees, glue, mason jars, glitter and fake snow.
When making the banners for my trees, I also found these silver letters in the Target $ spot.
One of my fav. additions to my tree.
I hope this inspires you to use items you find in inexpensive places as Holiday décor.
