How to Have an Affordable DIY Dollar Tree Christmas

by Simplify

Join Kathryn as she takes us shopping for an affordable Dollar Tree Christmas. Shopping early, because these valuable finds sell out fast once the holiday season comes, Kathryn finds some fabulous Christmas treasures. Aside from the ready-made décor, Kathryn shows us some easy DIY projects with Dollar Tree items.

Dollar Tree has some gorgeous ribbons and decorations. Elevate an old wreath by wrapping ribbon around it. Add more sparkle with some of the décor available at Dollar Tree. Kathryn uses a sparkly reindeer cutout. Another great use for the ribbon is to drape a strip of it on the wall or from a door and using clips to hang and display Christmas cards.

Kathryn shows us a simple DIY to create a decorative piece that looks like a giant wrapped gift. Take a foam core board and wrap it in brown paper, or regular wrapping paper. Dollar Tree sells giant bows that are just $3. Glue some ribbon in a crisscross and then place and glue the giant bow in the middle. Add ornaments for embellishment. Use some ribbon to make a little loop at the top to hang it.

Kathryn makes her own snow globe-inspired decorations with faux snow. To offset the amount of faux snow, she mixes in Epsom salt. She adds some white glitter to make the decoration look extra special.
