lifetimegoals :  giiiiirl, 85% of my decor is from the dollar store!

I recently started adding in disney ornaments and the disney train. I usually buy 1 disney ornament per year πŸ™‚ but everything else is from the dollar store.

Also, cute, easy and cheap are these glass bowls filled with some ornaments. Again, all from the dollar store (even the runner) except the snowman πŸ™‚

I second the suggestions of the dollar stores and big lots but also check out thrift stores and Ross.

Collect a bunch of pinecones from the park. You can paint tips of them white to look like snow, which would cost about 99 cents. Or add glitter! Then wrap some wire around them to hang them. The whole thing will cost less than $5 and it will be so cute! I haven’t put my tree up yet this year, but here is an old pic and you can see all my pinecones.

My husband and I made these out of sculpy. What a great idea to do it with your little nieces! I’m sure they’ll have a blast.

We too build a collection of decorations.  Every year we buy a couple for the tree. We now have some really nice ones.

lifetimegoals :  just popping in to say hello and to say that the the card exchange thread  made me remember the macaroni art I made as kid in kindy. We made tree ornaments and spray painted them to give as a gift to our parents. If you Google macaroni tree ornaments you’ll find good inspo and seeing your tree full of macaroni art will probably make you smile more than any bought ornament! It cheap too. With ten bucks you can buy ribbon, spray paint, glue and a few bags of pasta and literally cover your tree with ornaments!

I decided, a few years ago, that I wanted a holiday decor collection so I did a two pronged approach. The cheap decorations at the dollar store are great for finding a lot of similar “filler” type things. I also visited thrift stores and found a lot of really great and affordable and unique decorations. Then, every year, I buy one or two items that remind me specifically of someone in our family or something that happened during the year (one year we were working in getting a house so that year’s decorations were a bunch of tiny houses). A lot of times, I look at the sales that are happening after the holidays because you can get great prices. Then I wrap the new acquisitions and pack them away and they’re a special surprise when we decorate the following year.

As we get more special and specific to us decorations, we donate or pass on the generic “filler” decorations.

Awwww thanks! Darling Husband and I painted the donut, pizza, cuttlefish, and hammerhead shark with some inks I grabbed from my art studio. (When I was a child my sister and I used acrylics, which worked well.) The blt sandwich, prosciutto melon, and bacon & eggs pan we made with colored sculpy from a pack with multi colors. Pro tip: we discovered that you can “mix” the color you want by mushing it around in your fingertips until you have the shade you want. For example if you want toast color, you take a teeny bit of brown and mix with white.
