Dollar Store Christmas Tree Decorating Tutorial

3 Materials
1 Hour
Ever want to change up your Christmas tree but don't want to break the bank?
This Beautiful Silver and White Christmas tree is decorated entirely from The DOLLAR STORE!

Can you believe it, this entire tree is decorated with only Dollar Store Ornaments!? Guess how much I actually spent/used for this tree? Spoiler alert it is a lot less than you might think it would cost to decorate a whole tree!

You will have watch to find out how much I spent.

This video shows the whole decorating process and will share each step and each product used!
Have you shopped at the Dollar store lately! Christmas is a good time to try it out!
I bought about 60 items... so $60 dollars right? Wrong! I didn't even use all of them.
Because the dollar store doesn't sell tree skirts (that I know of??) I used a throw blanket that I owned and just tucked the edges under to make it look round. It looked great for no extra money!
Start with your topper! Spoiler this one seemed to small so later on we fixed that!
It looks really homely right now! But don't worry it will be great in the end!
Here it is all finished!! (moved to a different corner because we ripped out the wall it sitting by before... much do you think we spent? So much less than you think!

    How do you keep your cats out of the tree? I have not out one up for over 10 years because the last time I did, my Gracie dove into the middle of it and was hanging by the light strands! I had to reach in to rescue her. I just ordered a wall tree. I will hang it on the wall just inside the door. Let's see her get to it there!

    The Dollar Tree you shop is stocked with more and better items than where I am but I have found some cute ornaments a few times. Your tree looks very pretty!
