I HEART the Dollar Tree

Last night I ran, literally, into the Dollar Tree to pick up one item.  I told myself I could spend no more than five dollars (plus tax of course) or knowing myself, I'd end up with a bunch of stuff stuck in a drawer unused.  I'm pretty proud of my purchases...

This is another one of those "why didn't I think of that?" kind of things.  I'm going to use these to tie my garland on my staircase and other places around my house.  Love it!

Now, I'm generally not a big fan of glitter, but I really liked these little reindeer.  It's hard to see in the picture but they have these cute little bells around the neck.
Number 3, Mistletoe.  I usually buy the real thing, but I'm really trying to cut corners this  year with my purchases.  So, I think I'll take off that yucky red ribbon and those horendous bells, stick a new, beautiful ribbon on top and hang it from a doorway...no one will ever know!  SHHHH!

Next up, these little guys...

The picture doesn't do them justice but they are really awesome. I think I'm going to use them for a new wreath I'm working on inspired  by...
this darling Refurbished Wreath from The Little Apartment.

And last but not least,

..this little foam wreath...I bought it to make a book wreath.  A dollar!  My favorite part!

So, enjoy your Tuesday, and run, run, run to The Dollar Tree!



  1. Way to go, Dollar Tree! I love the little reindeer.

  2. Oh my gosh- I bought those EXACT reindeer from the Dollar Tree too!!! haha :) I haven't done anything with them so far, but I feel like they're just waiting to add some sparkle to a wreath or something :) Can't wait to see how this project turns out for you!
