Target dollar spot Christmas DIY

Christmas is right around the corner, in fact it is 42 days away.  So it is time to start thinking about those Christmas decorations. I am all about simple with a big impact, and sometimes that means spending big money. But lets be honest, we all have gifts to buy so spending a ton on décor isn’t realistic.  I knew Target’s dollar spot was going to be my best friend for this project.  They always have the cutest décor for the holidays and the prices range from $1 to $7 which makes them budget friendly.

For this project I spent right around $25. What you will need from target to get this look are three $3 Christmas trees, three $3 olive buckets. Then you will need some craft paint to get that rusty look but if rust isn’t your thing you can skip this part. For the rust I used a sponge and some craft paint I had on hand already. The colors I used were a burnt orange, deep red and a chocolate brown. I dabbed the paint on with a sponge in random spots that I thought would rust naturally and that was it. After I “aged” the buckets I then took my target dollar spot trees out to the garage and spray painted them lightly with some leftover spray paint I had from another project. If you don’t have spray paint on hand Walmart sells some for $1 and that’s the kind I used. Once the trees were dry all I did was place some Styrofoam from the Dollar tree at the bottom of the bucket and placed the trees right in. That’s it, now you are done.

If you like the look of the random pinecones on the table as well your local craft store normally has them on hand. I got mine from Michael’s for $3 a bag, I used two bags for our 6ft table.  I hope you enjoyed this post. If you have any questions leave a comment below.  cropped-cropped-img_20171111_135205_43911.jpg
