Dollar Tree Spring Decor

Dollar Tree Spring Decor

This is a budget friendly post about how to take some cheap $1 items from Dollar Tree and make them look super cute in your home for spring!

First I bought speckled egg garland and since one strip was not very long I bought two and tied them together!

I added this new and improved garland to a cute $10 boxwood garland from Target to make the perfect spring garland for my mantle.

Next I took the larger eggs and some pale yellow Easter grass and filled a clear jar with them! I added some faux florals and made a cute spring vase!

Lastly, I took two $1 vases from Dollar Tree and added some smaller eggs from one string of garland which I just cut to let the eggs loose, added some eucalyptus stems and set them on my tv stand for another spring touch!

And that’s it! I have beautiful spring touches that match my neutral decor, all for under $20! Now if Spring would just hurry up and arrive!!

Christmas Advent Calendar for the Whole Family

Christmas Advent Calendar for the Whole Family

We’ve been home for months now. We are halfway through our first year of homeschooling and I think the kids are in a slump. No one has any motivation and the weather is getting colder. We aren’t getting as much fresh air. But the holidays are among us and with them comes a little excitement!

I decided to do an advent calendar this year and I let the kids help decide what we will be doing each day! It’s a fun way to get them involved and frankly, get the tween and teen off their phones for a little bit.

So here’s the full list of things we will do for the next 24 days!

Make paper snowflakes

Make a gingerbread house

Watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

Making Christmas cards for the nursing home

Print Christmas coloring pages

Wrap gifts

Gather canned goods for needy families

Go see Christmas lights

Make gingerbread house flower pots

Watch Elf

Family game night

Make Christmas cookies

Watch a Christmas movie we haven’t seen

Decorate outside

Watch The Santa Claus

Take Christmas pictures

Make a handprint wreath

Make ornaments via Pinterest

Christmas scavenger hunt

Visit Santa

Go ice skating

Create dollar tree foam Christmas trees and decorate

Get in pajamas and watch The Polar Express

Make cookies for Santa!

Open gifts and enjoy time together!

Also I have attached the image we used to print for our “Countdown to Christmas” board as well as the Christmas lightbulb printable!

Find a cute spot in your house – maybe it’s on a bulletin board or on the fridge! Make a visual so the kids can see it and have something to look forward to every day!
