    The Dollar Tree has Santa hat chair covers for $1 each and they are awesome!

      • Pleasant

        Yes! They are felt abc really look nice and not cheap. I got them about three weeks ago there.

    These are awesome! I do crafts with my kids every year for them to wrap and give as gifts. Think I will do the ribbon tree with my 6 year old this year! It’s even better if they can do a creative project (not just a step by step kit) by themselves so it is truly their gift.

    I always do a simple craft with my kids every year. My favorite is the gingerbread men(cinnamon mixed with applesauce and baked)or salt dough(salt and flour) ornaments. I have had them for years and I still love them the most

    Does anyone have some great ideas for a deck the cubicle challenge?

    In college at the dorm, we used to gift wrap the door; with Dollar Tree wrapping paper. 🙂

    Check out the YouTube videos and do a search for Dollar Tree DIY for Christmas. There are hundreds of them and the ideas are endless. Many holiday items sell out quickly at Dollar Tree so ask when delivery day is and if a refill is expected of a certain item you’re looking for.
