All Things Dollar Tree Christmas Party

 

Today I am participating in
When Debbie posted she was going to have a 
Dollar Store party I knew exactly what I would use.

I had bought a package of  Deer head votive at our local Bargain Store for only $1.25.
 
I am five hours North of any real dollar store, but
I think this qualifies as a dollar store purchase don’t you?

To make my centrepiece I filled three tart tins I had with Epsom salt and then added my deer head votive.
 
I covered three small canning jars with Birch bark I had gathered from the woods.
 
The Pine cones that I’ve had for many years were then added, along with fresh greens my husband had just gathered.
 
I tied a favourite plaid wool scarf around the handle of the wooden box and voila;
 
A simple dollar store purchase, plus items I had around the house make a quick and easy centrepiece display!
*****************************************************
Please hang in there with me friends as I am still battling with this old laptop.
 
It literally took over two hours to post this!
 
Anyway, I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend.
It’s cold and sunny here with snow drifts of three feet in some places..

  1. Kimberly, lovely, hand made, and the scarf finishes it so well. We have bark off our gum trees, but not so pale as your birch. I would forget a long drive to the Dollar Shop, this is perfect. Cheers from Jean

  5. Kimberly you did a really cute centrepiece with your bargain store purchase. I love it! I'm sorry it took so long to make this post. That must be so frustrating and I really hope your computer problems will be over soon. You really have winter there already don't you? Wow. It was chilly here today – minus 5C and sunny – but there's no snow around except for the few blobs left from ploughing last week. The grass is green! Warm hugs. Pam

  7. I like your little dollar store centrepiece, it's lovely! The “Dollar Store” will soon be no more. Our Dollar Tree is actually a 1.25 store and Dollarama has only a few things for 1.00!
