Hey, all you Christmas tree lovers, this one is for you! This year, I have been obsessed with tabletop trees. They are classy and add the perfect seasonal décor touch to any room. However they can be expensive, which is why I decided to make my own for just a few dollars. I headed to my local Dollar Tree and picked up a few artificial tabletop trees, some faux flowers and greenery, a tree topper, and a basket for just $1 each. Using white spray paint I had at home, I frosted the trees to make them appear as though they were dusted with snow. I topped them off with the faux flowers and greeney and set them in a basket with white tissue paper and voila… festive décor on a budget!
Draped over doorways and wrapped around hand rails, garlands and wreaths pull together your holiday decorations and add a touch of warmth to your home's inside and outside spaces. Garland ranges from simple greenery to fully decorated pieces adorned with pinecones, candy canes, holly and sugared fruit. You can even wrap garland with lights for a bit of sparkle. Try single strands of garland across the mantel or tabletops. Deck the front porch railings with tinsel garlands and ribbons. Turn your front door into a festive work of art by hanging thick garland across the top of the frame. Pair it with a coordinating wreath to complete the look.
By now, we’re all pretty used to a single wreath hanging on a door as a festive holiday decoration. However, if you want a unique but simple way to spice up this expected look, try hanging three Christmas wreaths, one atop another so that they cover the door from top to bottom. This homeowner chose to leave the wreaths undecorated, but you can easily add string lights or ornaments to give the wreaths a little extra something. This design scheme also demonstrates how easy it is to decorate if you have pillars outside your front door by simply wrapping garland around them.
Fresh garlands are gorgeous, but customize yours to give it a touch of fun and to ensure it fits in with the existing environment. Grab some construction paper in vibrant colors and then cut out some seasonal shapes (like these triangle trees). Then glue them together and hang them from your garland. To make it all match, tie a ribbon in a corresponding color around the end of the banister.
The absolute best Christmas door decorations are the ones that truly capture the sprit of the season. Christmas isn’t just about enjoying the company of your friends and family by the fireplace; it’s also about waking up each day to a snowy winter wonderland. The recreate this look on your own door, use a white faux snow spray to lightly cover a wreath and a garland. The dark purple ornaments beautifully compliment the look of the fake snow on the greenery. Add a few white Christmas trees nearby to really finish off this beautiful, winter-inspired decor scheme.

Holiday time usually means more time—and more people—in the kitchen cooking and baking. A small tree introduces Christmas spirit without getting in the way. Green hobnail glass and kitchen utensils from the '40s and '50s inspired the mint green and cherry red palette of this tree. Hang utensils amid homespun touches such as popcorn garlands and crisp gingham ribbon.

Just as I mentioned in my my Dollar tree Fall craft and decor ideas I posted back in August, “don’t shoot the messenger”.  Little did I know it would be so warmly received, and yet so early on.  So I figured I would piggy back off that, and share my Dollar tree Christmas craft and decor ideas round up with you.  Obviously, budget friendly craft ideas seem to be pretty popular.  At this point in my life, I pride myself on them.  I enjoy taking something basic and creating some seasonal fun with it.   All the links highlighted will take you to the actual project and/or free printable.
