DIY Dollar Store Christmas Tree Ornaments

The holiday season is here and that means 2 things…Christmas decorations and having absolutely NO money after the season is over šŸ˜‰ Because we all need every single dollar around this time I went about trying to find a way to get my craft on, have some cute new decorations AND do it as cheaply as possible!Ā  Brielle hasĀ  Frozen themed Christmas tree in her bedroom the past 2 years but now that she’s a rambunctious 3.5 yr old I didn’t dare leave my very fragile and very expensive snowflakes in her tornado path. So I headed to the Dollar Store to see what I could come up with and I ended up making 4 different versions of ornaments for her tree and everything I used to make them came from the Dollar Store!

This is a quick look at everything I used to make my Dollar Store Frozen ornaments so check out the details below!

We had brunch so the food was simple (all store bought minus the breakfast pizza!) so it came together quick and it was really easy finding foods in those colors too! If you want the details stick around!

Halloween Spider Party

I found this incredible web from Oriental Trading and I knew I HAD to throw a spider party! I kept everything black and white tones, I feel like there is something a little unnerving about colorless Halloween decor. It reminds me of horror books I read growing up, someone would find a corpse and the body was always described something along the lines like “skin as paper, translucent and drained of all blood. With their black eyelashes lying on their cold skin giving a startling contrast”.Ā  Geez, IĀ  LOVE Halloween!
