Decorating for Christmas with ONLY Dollar Tree Items

Decorating for Christmas with ONLY Dollar Tree Items

Decorating for Christmas with ONLY Dollar Tree Items!


This year I have a Christmas tree in almost every room of the house.  And I’m not mad about it.

If ever there was a year where we needed all of the holiday cheer, 2020 is that year.

I decided to pick up a 4′ flocked tree on a recent Hobby Lobby run for one of our guest bedrooms.  For a fun challenge, I decided to decorate this tree using ONLY decorations from my local Dollar Tree.  Let’s watch what I came up with…


$49 is all it cost to decorate this gorgeous tree.  FORTY NINE DOLLARS!🙌🏼

Are you as impressed with the way it turned out as Matt and I are?



The tree was about $75 from Hobby Lobby and I purchased the last tree they had on the floor.  The cutie crocheted skirt is also a Hobby Lobby find.  Just a head’s up, all of their Christmas decor is 50% off this week.

If you’re looking for a beautiful flocked tree, check out Walmart’s selection.  My 6.5′ tree in Ohio and two of our new trees here in Nashville all came from Walmart.

Here is a closer look at the decor.  The ornaments are plastic, i.e. SHATTERPROOF!  If you have a toddler like I do, these are your best bet.  They come in packs of either 12 or 15 ornaments for $1.



If you are tired of the standard tree toppers (angels or stars) consider using florals or stems in a bunch.  Like I say in the video, always group your stems in odd numbers, this is a design rule of thumb and it’s always accurate.

For this tree topper, I mixed together two gold stems and one silver stem and it was the perfect way to top our little tree.



This project turned out so much prettier than I initially thought that it was.  What do you think?  Let me know in the comments below!

    I love the branches in the tree. I like to take ribbon and wrap it around the tree like garland. In the past I have made bows with wire ribbon and put them on the tree.
    I would LOVE to see your cozy ideas.

    Love that tree!! You did a great job! I will def check out Dollar Tree for some of the decoration pieces. I first need to buy a new tree soon. Prob after Thanksgiving is over I’ll get one. Yes flowers and such can be pricey at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. Even with a coupon.
