Well I am super excited because Christy from Embellished Bayou is kindly offering up one of these 3 bee-autiful hand painted wooden ornaments to one lucky winner, and the winner gets to choose...how cool is that! I just adore Christy's blog Embellished Bayou...she has got to be one of the craftiest blogger's I know. In fact, I'd say she's totally craftalicious! ;) How cute are these hand painted wooden ornaments?
Okay, my frugalicious finds came from a simple trip to the Dollar Store! Ya know, decorating for the Holidays isn't cheap. In fact, after you buy the outdoor decorations, wreaths, garland, and lights, not to mention the tree and presents...you can easily spend a small fortune. So every year, I make a trip to the Dollar Store in search of fun decorations, that won't break the bank! Here's what I found for just under $10: a fun Holiday sign, sparkly stars, faux glass ball ornaments, even snowflake ornaments, all for just $1 each...love that!
So armed with my Dollar store finds I set out to spice up some of my existing Holiday decorations. First things first, the mantle. These apple green ornaments, and gold sparkly stars are just what my tired mantle needed for a little extra Holiday bling! Oh and the flat screened TV...I just pretended it wasn't even there. Maybe next year I'll cover it in wrapping paper. Hmmm...somehow I don't think the hubby will go for that!
Our Christmas tree has a gold and red color scheme, so these gold sparkly snowflakes are perfect! I've seen similar ornaments from Pottery Barn for over $10 each...yikes!
I thought this sign that reads "Santa, I want it all!" would look great on my new shelf in our mudroom. I also put Holiday wrapping paper in this frame that usually holds a vintage map. Yup, I'm the crazy girl who decorates her mudroom with Christmas decorations!
And finally this red sparkly star found a home above our nutcracker collection. I hot glued natural twine rope and hung it directly on the mirror.
So there it is...fun Dollar Store finds that add a little sparkle and bling to otherwise simple Holiday decorations! What's your latest frugalicious find, craft or Diy project? Link up and join the party and consider yourself entered for this sweet Holiday giveaway! (the winner will be announced Monday)
So link up...and give us the scoop on how you $ave!
