Christmas season has arrived and with it comes decorating the house. Which we did this past weekend, just as we have done almost Thanksgiving weekend. It’s a become a wonderful tradition. Tyler was so excited to decorate this year that he became frustrated we weren’t decorating fast enough! While out holiday shopping, I was searching for the perfect floral arrangement to put on my Christmas Tablescape. Much to my dismay I couldn’t find anything that was pre-made with in my budget. To remedy this problem, I stopped by my local dollar tree and picked up the items I needed to create my own DIY Christmas flower arrangement. This arrangement cost me $8 to assemble.
Supplies Needed from the Dollar Tree:
- Reindeer Moss
- 3 different Poinsettia Flowers (I used white, manilla and red poinsettia)
- Glitter Bird on a branch
- 1 stick of Christmas berries
- decorative glittered branches
First I wrapped the vase with ribbon and secured with hot glue. Next, I poured the reindeer moss into the bottom of the vase and added some of the Christmas berries that had fallen off of the stick. Then, I arranged the flowers, bird and glittered branches until I got my desired look of a full flower arrangement. Let your imagination be your guide as you use fill your vase this holiday season. And that is it. No more directions. Really, it was a one of the simplest crafts I have done in a while.
It’s a great thing I didn’t spend $29.99 on the floral arrangement I had noticed at a local craft supply store. This came out better and saved me $22! It looks perfect on my foyer Christmas tablescape.
I love how everything is $1 at the dollar tree. It’s amazing how many items you can mark of your holiday list for a lot less than other stores.
