Hey, you!

I created this blog to challenge myself to make time for things that light my fire. You'll mostly find posts about home renovation and design, cooking, DIY projects and a sprinkle of craft beer and cat photos. Hope you have a nice stay!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like a Dollar Tree Christmas

No, that's not a bad thing!

Since I've always seemed to have been in the midst of renovations, I have never really decorated for Christmas before. This means I had absolutely zero ornaments or decorations. With just buying a car, new hardwood floors and new appliances I wanted to keep it on the cheap side. After browsing Target, Amazon, and several other websites I realized this would be no easy task.

Here enters the Dollar Tree. I was able to decorate my entire tree for $25! Yes, twenty five dollars.

I'll post the ornaments I was able to get below. I plan on making homemade cinnamon ornaments to fill in the rest, so keep an eye out for that post!

These "Merry Christmas" ornaments and the silver icicles both came in a pack of 5 for $1.  I also got a pack of 9 red jingle bells and a huge pack of ornament hooks for $1 each.

I fell in love with these white glittered reindeer and cannot believe they were only $1 each.

These red glittered bows came in a large size for $1 each or a medium size for 2 for $1. I also got 12 feet of this matching ribbon for....you guessed it... $1!

These gorgeous doves were 50 cents each and the classic red and silver ornaments came in a pack of 6 more $1.

These may not be ornaments, but I might have audibly squealed when I saw these gold reindeer tea candle holders!
