"Dining Room Tree and Dollar Tree"

Well, I've managed to knock out another Christmas tree. I'm actually a little behind. I should have three up by now. My little petite kitchen tree is up and decorated. 




This is my rustic and homey tree. It's filled with pine cones, birds and leaves, gingham ribbon and acorn bows....
It also has the little personal touch of small frames filled with pictures of family and friends (and of course me). I picked up these small wallet size frames at Dollar Tree and hot glued gingham ribbon hooks on...

Speaking of Dollar Tree, they have an amazing assortment of ornaments priced at super low prices. Some are as little as 3 for $1.





Honestly, it's really hard to tell the difference between the gold glitter ornaments I purchased at Macy's a few years ago and the one's I picked up from Dollar Tree.  Just sayin'.

But be careful, the store's options aren't exactly "goof-proof" so here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Opt for a color scheme that compliments your room. It creates a much more intentional and classy look.

2.  Dollar Tree can be a great source, but stick to one or two colors and buy in bulk.  The volume of similar or like ornaments will have much more impact that a few just here and there.

3.  Load up on the classics.  I purchased traditional gold glass balls in various colors and will use them to fill bowls and jars for a festive (and low cost) holiday look.

4.  Not much for conventional?  Go all out!  It is Christmas after all.

You are so inspirational about holiday decorating that I must send a comment for each one. I wish I had a dollar store around my way. I swear, you make me want to move to NC but I can't because it's a red state:) Happy Thanksgiving!
