Christmas decorating is my passion, and I love visiting dollar stores for holiday essentials and craft supplies. Everything’s just a buck, and with some creativity, you can achieve some high-end looks using Dollar Tree supplies!

Dollar Tree has definitely stepped up their game lately with trendy, seasonal decor. I love their ornaments, Christmas trees, floral, and ribbon! There’s so much cute stuff there, and all priced at just $1 or less!

Today, I’m sharing three different ways to make a festive centerpiece using Dollar Tree materials. Plus, I love that these ideas are FUN to do as a crafty activity, and are super cute and stylish!

1. Candles, Ornaments, and Floral Display Box

For this first look, I filled the DIY rustic wooden centerpiece I made in a previous post with lots of different bits of floral, ornaments, and two candles. The two candles had large labels (easy to remove without any soaking). For height, you can add upside-down bowls or floral foam to the inside of the box, and place items on top to help them stick out a bit more.

Here’s the directions to make your own wood centerpiece, or here’s a similar looking decorative box I found online. You could also look around the house for a large bowl, container, or serving tray and make a similar centerpiece as well.

2. Snowman Christmas Trees

These mini white Christmas trees are such a bargain at Dollar Tree and are fun to decorate with! For the snowman, I glued red bells as “buttons” to the white trees. Then I tied a piece of ribbon around each tree as a scarf. These specific face ornaments can also be found at Dollar Tree, though they also have black hat ornaments which will also work.

I stuck them inside two Dollar Tree coffee cups I embellished as DIY Rae Dunn inspired mugs and secured them using floral foam. You can use another container, such as a small bucket or box if desired. Dollar Tree has a lot of options. I like how simple and cute these turned out!

3. Flocked Mini Trees

Here’s another mini tree idea! I embellished a plain green tree by flocking, and then I added berries and embellishments to make them look a little more high-end. Go HERE for complete instructions. I loved creating these trees last year, and I look forward to incorporating them again in my Christmas decor!

    I think the white mini-tree snowmen might be nice to bring to nursing home residents or to those in the hospital at Christmas as part of a church ministry because they are affordable to make and there are no lights on them so no potential fire hazard for the home/hospital to be concerned about. I made mine using the tree stand included with the $1 trees and skipped the mugs to keep costs down. Still adorable. Cost less than $2.50 cents each to make if you already have a glue gun and glue sticks. Thanks!
