Now that Christmas has come and gone, I find myself wanting to make lots of floral and nature-themed crafts. I guess I just be looking forward to spring!! I recently acquired some tiny mason jars and was itching to make Something with them.
I spotted these succulent picks at Dollar Tree and knew exactly what I wanted to do.
I got out a block of floral foam and cut it the same size as the jar.
Then, I used some white chalk paint to paint the jar white.
I then inserted the floral foam into the jar.
Then, I just inserted the floral pick into the foam, and glued moss on the foam to hide it.
I’m loving how cute and simple this is. The perfect amount of farmhouse charm!
Sometimes you just need a cute, easy craft that doesn’t cost you a dime. That’s exactly what I needed this week, and it turned out super cute.
I picked up these pinecones from our neighbor’s yard but I already had the glue gun, ribbon and twine in my craft cabinet.
I cut the ribbon at the length I wanted and tied them into simple little bows.
I then tied the twine around the knot on the bows and hot glued the bow knots to the base of the pine cones.
I told you this was easy!!
And I made six of them in different sizes.
And then I hung them on our tree.
Next year, I may create a woodland tree with these pine cones and wood slice ornaments. Arent they pretty?
What awesome and free crafts have you done lately?
If you’ve been a reader here for very long, you know a few things about me:
1. I love signs with quotes and verses
2. I have champagne taste on a tap water budget
3. I am addicted to the dollar stores.
Have you been to Dollar General lately? If you read my post about their fall decor, then you probably have already checked out their Christmas decor. If you haven’t, you should. It’s cute and cheap, which is how I like my decor.
These tree skirts are adorable and would look great with any farmhouse themed tree. You could easily remove the red snowflake from the first one if you wanted. And who doesn’t love red ticking stripe? Such a classic look.
This burlap stocking is so cute!
I love a cute Santa ornament and this fellow is rather unique with his dark outfit. There were several Santa’s.
These lanterns are beautiful and no one will ever know they are from a dollar store.
I bet you knew I’d put a red truck in here somewhere! Check out this advent calendar.
You know I love wood signs- here are three pretty ones.
And these big, old bells would be amazing on a wreath.
I hope you enjoyed these Christmas dollar store finds as much as I did! Have a wonderful Monday!
This weekend, the girls and I visited a new Dollar Tree location with my aunt and grandma. Like most stores right now, they have a mixture of Halloween, fall and Christmas decor…and there are a lot of pretty items to choose from. I managed to buy a few things and I’ve already earmarked a few nice items for Christmas.
Take a look at the pretties I found (and comment below if you happen to make a Dollar Tree visit of your own to share your finds.”
1. Fall themed drinking glass
When I was in college, all of my plates, cups, and bowls came from the Dollar Tree! They sell sturdy, attractive glassware and no one will know where you bought it.
I think these drinking glasses would look great on your fall table for their intended purpose, but I think they’d be cute fall tea light holders, too.
2. Paper party ware
Dollar Tree is a great place to purchase party ware. These thanksgiving themed plates and napkins are just as cute as the $5 you can buy elsewhere.
3. Glass candle holders
These glass candle holders are simple, cute and perfect for your fall table. I love the one on the right!!
4. Primitive poke berries
I’ve bought these poke berry garlands at craft stores for $6-$8 dollars before! These are cute and offered in both white and red. I already have a project in mind for them.
5. Burlap pumpkins and glass pumpkins
I have about a million of these things- they’re so cute and you can use them so many different ways to decorate.
6. Fall themed platters
I have a lot of fall themed plates because as a southern woman, we tend to have a lot of church get togethers. These seasonal plates are nice for taking dessert items to church dinners.
7. Kitchen textiles
These fall themed towels are cute!
I hope you have enjoyed our fall decor picks from Dollar Tree. What cute budget friendly decor have you stumbled upon lately?
