Dollar Store DIY Christmas Decorations

10 materials
Wandering around the dollar store was a great way to come up with an idea for how to make some pretty, yet bargain priced Christmas decorations.
Yes, I started buy picking up several plastic bats from the dollar store.
I painted my bats green.
I drilled some holes in my bats. A hole all the way through toward the bottom of the bat, one near the top and a pair of the holes in the handle.
I wrapped a piece of chicken wire around a piece of floral foam.
I used those chenille stems to attach the chicken wire covered foam to the handle of the bat.
Using green faux garland from the dollar store, I covered the foam by using greening pins to secure it to the foam.
When I had the foam covered I wrapped it around the rest of the bat, securing in a couple of spots with hot glue.
Using greening pins I secured some red mesh ribbon to the foam and then pulled the tail down and hot glued it in a couple of spots to the end of the bat.
In the spots where I had secured the ribbon I attached some unbreakable Christmas ornaments.
I have a beautiful Christmas swag. A pair of these would look lovely on double doors. I will be using these on my porch and stair railings at my house. This one came in at $5!
These are so easy to personalize however you would like them. This one has a snowflake theme with a red ribbon with snowflakes on it, white snowflake ornaments and faux silver and white poinsettias.
