We put up our Christmas tree last night! I definitely always wait until after Thanksgiving to put my Christmas decorations up, but I’ve noticed many people start right after Halloween! The earlier, the merrier, right?
When it came time for us to decorate for Christmas, we decided that would we rather spend the bulk of our budget on others instead of on fancy decorations. But just because we didn’t want to spend a lot of money doesn’t mean we didn’t find some amazing and festive pieces!
Believe it or not, the Dollar Store had great holiday decor. We supplemented with a few things from Target, but the majority of the items below are straight from DS!
I spy a little pug in background 🙂
This little guy above has a clip attached to the back of it so we are able to hang it (and its matching mate) from our suspended lighting fixtures in the kitchen.
The main reason I chose these particular pieces is that they all look homemade in some way. Imperfectly perfect. I didn’t want anything too modern or commercial.
ALWAYS need a bit of glitter!
I’ve never examined this guy up close… he’s kinda scary lol!
We have a number of these miniature trees scattered around our apartment! So festive!
The stockings are from Target and they were $3! The furry one in the middle is obviously for Wilson 🙂
So there you go, decorating on a budget with zero sacrifices.
Well, that’s all for now!
