X-Mas Decor from Dollar Store: Make Merry for Less

‘Tis the season of over-spending. Light-up reindeer on the lawn and giant trees adorned in the latest Christmas ornaments aren’t necessary to a happy holiday. The fact is, you don’t need a sleigh-load of cash to decorate your home this Christmas. There’s a lot to be said for understated holiday decorating but, even if you do like to go a little overboard in the spirit of good cheer, Christmas frills from the dollar store let you make merry for much less than if you were to buy all of your decorations from Walmart or Sears.

Glass, plastic, mini – the dollar store has ‘em all and, at a buck a piece for the larger ones, you can’t go too far wrong. Dollar Store Services has tubes of shatter-proof ornament balls in various sizes and colors for just a buck each tube, special ornaments like a plastic stocking you can fit a picture into, stuffed Santa heads, sparkly butterflies and poinsettia ornaments and many others. Also, look for the traditional glass balls in either a 12-pack of medium sized balls or a seven-pack of large ones.

Get a 15-foot pine garland, perfect for banisters, for only a buck. Wire-edged ribbon is great for trimming the tree and it comes in 9- foot rolls in a variety of lovely designs or you can stick to the more traditional tinsel garland.

Snow globes are always fun table toppers and Dollar Store Services has a couple of different designs to choose from. Christmas taper candles are $1 for a package of two and look for pillar candles and tea lights in seasonal colors, as well. I recently found some tea light holders shaped like Christmas ball ornaments and packed in a clear box. I think you could use one of these as a great addition to a Christmas gift basket, as well as for decorating your own home.

Mini lights and electrical cords Dollar Store Services has a set of 35 mini lights and 6-foot extension cords to help you light your tree for less. Look for the safety standards seal on the box. Most of the power cords and mini lights I’ve seen have it, but you can’t be too careful. If electrical cords and lights haven’t been tested, they could prove to be fire hazards.

Apart from the usual things that will help to keep the kids happily cutting, gluing and painting on Christmas themes, Dollar Store Services always has seasonal craft sheets and this year you can download instructions for decorating a wreath in one of five different ways.
