Easy Wood Ornament Decor From Dollar Tree

Add a bit of holiday cheer to your walls with this inexpensive wood ornament decor from Dollar Tree.

First, I want to thank you for all your excitement and words of encouragement over yesterday's post.  It truly blew me away and I am so incredibly lucky to have such amazing reader's and friends.

I was hoping to get this project shared sooner in case any of you wanted to grab the same ornament from Dollar Tree, but I just have way too many holiday projects to share and not enough time to share them.  I'm hoping Dollar Tree still has some of these oversized wood ornaments in stock, but don't hate me if they don't, ha.

A Major Life Change...

I am still in shock and a little terrified that I am writing this post.

Just over 4 years ago, I followed my heart and started this little blog of mine.  It has allowed me to share my passion and love for DIY and decor and has given me the creative outlet that my day job lacked.   I have been fortunate to work with some amazing brands and create incredible friendships with some very talented bloggers.  Most importantly, it has given our family financial freedom that I never in a million years expected.

Modern Farmhouse Neutral Christmas Mantle

Neutral decor and fresh greenery make a beautiful combination for the perfect modern farmhouse Christmas mantel.

I added lots of red to our Christmas mantel last year, but kept things simple and went neutral this year with fresh greenery,  cute miniature houses and new knit stockings.   I love the simplicity, especially since upstairs is filled with beautiful touches of red

Free Printable to Make Easy Winter Tags

An easy tutorial for creating beautiful wood tags to add the perfect holiday touch to packages and decor.

I heard you loud and clear.  You are having trouble finding the wood tags that I used in last week's Dollar Tree votive makeover.   I bought mine when Target first started bringing out their Dollar Spot holiday decor and apparently they were popular and sold out fast.  It's so disappointing when I share a project that is supposed to be easy for you to create, but ends up being impossible since supplies no longer exist.  Thankfully, I love a good challenge, so I created a free printable for you to make your own easy winter tags.

How to Make Inexpensive Dollar Tree Christmas Votive Holders

Beautiful Mercury glass votive holders from Dollar Tree get an inexpensive Christmas makeover.

It's Dollar Store DIY time.  The first Monday of every month I share a Dollar Store makeover as a way of sharing simple ideas so you can create a beautiful home without spending a fortune.  Whether you need to organize, decorate or give a gift, you may be surprised what you can do with Dollar Tree items. 

This month, I grabbed a couple glass votive holders and gave them an easy Christmas makeover.  The best part is, all the supplies for this project came from the Dollar Tree or Target's Dollar spot, making these little votive holders super affordable.

Can you believe these Mercury glass votive holders came from Dollar Tree?  They are so pretty (especially twinkling at night) and look just as nice as more expensive ones.
