Dollar Store Christmas Tree

Last year I did the traditional red, green, and gold Christmas tree. Every year after Christmas I will buy a few items at 50%-75% off and pack them away for the following year. For some reason the purple and silver items were calling my name last year.
 
This year I put it all together!
 
After putting what I had bought from last year on the tree.....it wasn't enough!
 
Off to the Dollar Tree I go and let me just tell you now, I think I am forming an addiction to the Dollar Tree!
 
What I picked up.
 

Large glittered plastic balls $1 each...they only had 6 of them in silver and I haven't seen any more:(
 
Eight bunches of silver flowers in different styles..$1 each.
 
Two packages of silver and gold glittered balls in different sizes. I only used the silver ones on the tree.
 
So a total of $16!
 
And I bought the purple and silver glittered doves and snowflakes at Walmart last year at 50% off of $2.97....four packages total....so maybe $5-$6 for those.
 
 
OHHH...and how do you like my Mardi Gras purple beads that cut and put all over the tree??
 















 
I have to say it's nice for a change when I look at the tree this year:) 
 

I call this the SILVER room:)
 


Everything else around the house is red, green, and gold. I'll be posting more pictures this weekend.
 
 
BUT....come back for this Dollar Tree hand made acorn ornament. I am putting a tutorial together now:)

Christmas Tree Branches

Using live greenery is one of my favorite things to do at Christmas. I filled a white pot from a left over Edible Arrangement with tree clippings.
 
I have a medium sized planter by the front door and filled it with tree trimmings and hung ornaments from it.
 
I picked up the silver magnolia leaves a few years back at Pier-1 for like $2...along with our silver paper star!
 
 






I still had some branches left, so I filled up our outside planter with some....and a few pine cones:)
 





I am almost done with the live garland around the door....this year has been a supper busy year and I just can't seem to get caught up!!

Chalk Art

I have a slight obsession with chalk art right now! It's so fun creating something new every month.
 



I have started dabbling into photography and I recently used my Christmas chalk board for the shoot.
