DIY Dollar Tree Snow Village
What a great idea to purchase those cheap little figurines from the Dollar Tree and totally transform them with just a little paint and glitter! Enlist the kids’ help to transform these pieces and display them on a mantel, side table, or even as a main dinner table centerpiece. Check out the complete tutorial here.

Jingle All The Way Jingle Bell Frame
by: Kerri Bradford
This project is so creative and cute and Kerri even provides you with the printable lettering needed to apply to the glass. Get the full tutorial here.
Rustic Wood Candle Holders
by: Marty’s Musings
This project is about as simple as it gets. Especially if you have someone else to handle the cutting and drilling. But what a big bang for your buck. Some branches from the yard and a couple tealights? Your cost for this one is as close to zero as you can get but it’s so natural and beautiful. This one is definitely on my list. The detailed tutorial is here.
Cranberry Orange Stovetop Potpourri
by: Mommy Gaga
This project is both beautiful and functional. These jars of stovetop potpourri will look beautiful on the kitchen counter for the holidays and I can attest to the awesome aroma that fills the house when you simmer the contents on a cold day. They make great gifts too! Check out the full tutorial here.
I can’t wait to get started on these great Christmas Decor projects. If you know me, you know I”m all about the low cost DIY. You can’t beat budget friendly home decor all year long really. It’s easy to create something that looks like it cost hundreds for just a couple of bucks with a little imagination and a little time. And the satisfaction with seeing the finished product that YOU created just can’t be beat.
