DON’T YOU LOVE CHRISTMAS…
This an affiliate post. For more information, see my disclosures here.
Tis the season… to decorate the home. This year we set out to decorate our home for the holidays on a budget. My husband and I knew the Dunhill Fir tree would be on this years Christmas list. This tree its tall, full and well-shaped. Unfortunately, for us, that high-quality fluffy tree came with an unrealistic price tag of 400 dollars. I love Christmas but 400 dollars! Instead of buying a new tree for 300- 400 dollars, we purchased this awesome used Christmas tree ( affiliate link) for less than half. Thank you, Amazon . Although the tree is used, it looks good and you wouldn’t even know it was used! And we donated the old tree to give someone else the gift of Christmas.
DECORATE YOUR TREE FOR THE HOLIDAYS
I purchased the holiday decorations from my favorite story ..DOLLAR TREE and other items were from Michael’s. Since I went Michael’s at the end of the season, everything was 50% off. In addition, I used 50% off coupon from the app snip snap.
DECORATE FOR THE HOLIDAYS WITH RIBBONS + BOWS
I was inspired to make ribbons and bows from a wreath we made at work. Check it out on my Instagram. I did not do a step by step guide but no worries, I got you. The Tip Toe Fairy makes beautiful items and she gives a wonderful tutorial here. The only differences from the bows are the fabric used and I created a really long bow tail. Other than that, it’s the same concept.
CENTERPIECES DECORATIONS FOR THE HOLIDAYS
The centerpiece was so easy. You can just head to the dollar tree and pick up candleholders and artifical flowers, then place the small Christmas balls inside. Next, for the center glass jar, use any leftover ribbon by placing it in the jar in a circular motion. See…. simple, cheap and easy just like my other DIY projects !
Which centerpiece is best 1 or 2?
