With Christmas just 22 days away, this is the first year that I have decorated a tree with my children. I never really felt the need to spend a whole bunch of money for decorations that would only be up for less than a month. Being the thrifty mama that I am, a few months ago I saw someone advertise a free christmas tree on Varage Sale. It was located only a few blocks away and all I had to do was pick it up and put it in my car. Can we say WINNING?!
On my quest to decorate with flair yet stay well below my budget, I opted for my favourite bargain spot. You guessed it... Value Village! I found two packs of these perfect ornaments and had a 30% off coupon too increase my savings. Even at $1.99 these were a steal. Value Village has great Christmas decor items for a fraction of the price. I purchased these last set of ornaments to do a little something different to the outside of my house. #Boothang advised we wouldn't be putting up outside lights and I didn't want to go with the traditional wreath. I decided to hang the ornaments with some ribbon and let the beauty of my front door shine.
It took no time at all to make my front door adornment. This is a perfect DIY project for anyone, even the craft-challenged. I love my creation and think its adds an extra bit of festiveness to our home. Next on my list are the stockings for the kids and my boo. Hopefully, I can get some good finds.
I would love to see how you have decorated for the season. Leave a comment below or tag us in your pics on Instagram @stylesbyknight.
