Christmas  is coming up. I know that we are in October, so don’t hate me for talking about Christmas. It’s just that Christmas is probably my favourite time of the year. I love driving down the road and seeing the Christmas lights on all the houses, and the look of a fresh snowfall on the ground. Christmas music on the radio and the smell of fresh Christmas baking throughout the house brings comfort to my soul. I also love the way the house looks when there is Christmas decorations in every nook and cranny around the house.

Although I like to decorate the house, I don’t like breaking the bank decorating it. The Dollar Store is my destination of choice when finding decorations, and materials to make them look like they cost alot more. I hope you find some ideas that you will want to showcase in your home this Christmas.

  1. Fishbowl Snowman

The fishbowl snowman reminds me of the snowglobes that my parents and grandparents had around their houses. We have a couple of them that we bought at vacations destinations like Niagara Falls. The kids love them. This Snowman is a really big snow globe.

2. Christmas Decoration Boxes

These boxes are beautiful and elegant. If you can’t find boxes that look the way you want, you can buy generic boxes and modpodge wrapping paper to the side of the box. They look expensive, and yet, are very budget friendly. Sometimes the best decoration is simple and uncomplicated. They aren’t overbearing. I love these boxes!

3. Snowflake Doorhanger

This doorhanger is unique and eye catching, and very simple. You can make this as big or small as you want, add color, and use different textures and materials to give it the look and feel that represents you and your family.

4. Pine Cone Centerpiece

This Centerpiece is winter and Christmas inspired with the Pine Cones and mini lights. The glass flower vases that are used at different heights and sizes are found at dollar stores. Nothing says Christmas like Pine Cones. If you use the cinnamon scented Pine Cones, it even smells like Christmas.

5. Mason Jar Decoration

Mason Jars from dollar stores aren’t necessarily a Christmas ornament, but with some personal extra touches, you can make them ooze yuletide. This is one you can be extra creative with using different materials and colors.

8. Santa Brushes

How cute are these brushes. The bristles work for Santa’s beard. If you have any other bearded characters, you can paint them to look like them as well. This is a great kids craft as well. They can each paint their own brush.

This Rustic Snowflake wall decor is a festive outside decoration. The link will take you to an Etsy store to buy the product. Or it can be a DIY project with a piece of cedar that has been protected with varnish. You then use spray paint and a stencil to complete the project.

14. Candy Cane Topiary

Candy Canes are a special treat at Christmas time. Traditionally we put candy canes on Christmas trees. This is a unique way to display them, and makes your kitchen feel like Christmas. The only problem with this DIY is that there will be candy at your fingertips all day long! How long can you go without eating up all those candy canes!!
