Dollar Store Garden Decor

Welcome to DAY FIVE! Who doesn't love the DOLLAR STORE?  Well we all do and here are some great holiday ideas using our Dollar Store finds.

Welcome to the third annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

Stop by every day from December first through the twelfth for new ideas you can use to make your season brighter!

Meet Your Hosts

They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!

Using a few simple items from the Dollar Store, I was able to create this garden light. 

A metal trellis
Battery-operated Lantern
Decorative Mesh
Plastic snowflakes
Diamond wrap beading
(small clothespins which I already had)
I wanted the lantern to be white so I used white spray chalk paint on it after taping off the clear globe part.  Using hot glue I added the turquoise beading.  I have to say I LOVE this beading ribbon!  It's soft and flexible and so easy to work with. They had it in several colors and I think I'll be grabbing more of that on my next trip.
The snowflakes are clipped onto the trellis with small clothespins.  I just used hot glue to attach the beading to the pins.
I created a fluffy bow with the mesh and secured it at the center with more of the beading ribbon.

  8. Nice!!! I would never have guessed that the items were from the dollar store.

  9. Oh, how pretty! You doll things up to the degree that one would never dream they cost so little! You do an amazing job. Oh, by the way, I wanted to tell you that we made your mini frittatas the other day, and oh, my, they are SO good! We have ONE left, and I plan to eat it for breakfast in the morning, Lord willing. :) Thanks so much for the blessing you are and the things you share here!
