$1 Christmas Decor

I am doing my Christmas this year with a ton of Sparkle & Shine.  There are some fabulous things at the dollar stores. 

I love glitter reindeer and and these turned out so cute.  

The reindeer came from the 99c store and the pack of 3 glitter bows came from the Dollar Tree.

A small dot of hot glue to stick the bows to the deer and I have a beautiful display.

The 99c store also had this gorgeous led sequin angel.  

 While I was at the Dollar Tree I also picked up these little candle cups.  They are gold on the outside and silver on the inside, so perfect to go with any decor.

 And we can all use a ton of these little led votives.  These came from the Dollar Tree too and 2 to the pack.  Can't beat that price.

So keep your eye out for great decor and do a little crafty diy and dress up your finds.

I also shop for gift boxes, tissue paper and ribbon.  They have a fabulous selection, plus this year I also saw some stunning ornaments.  

So where do you find your best bargains?

  1. Love the reindeer ! Very pretty !

  2. Wish we had 99 Cent stores here. Those reindeers look awesome! Your Christmas d├ęcor is really coming together! Very glitzy!

  3. Marty a lot of the ornaments on our Christmas tree are some I made by using Dollar tree items. You are so right, if you think outside the box you can come up with some beautiful displays for very little investment.
    Love your little reindeer. I found the same little silver bows at our Dollar Tree. We do not have a 99 cents store, I wish we did, I love your reindeer.

  4. You found some great things at the dollar store! Wow!! I love the reindeer and how you added the sparkly bows to really make them sparkle! Those candle cups are awesome! Must go look now! I've been doing a lot of thrifting lately for my decor bargains.

  5. These are all awesome finds Marty! Need those votive holders for sure!

  6. Such great finds Marty, but than there's no one like you to find such lovely things for a steal!
    Love the silver reindeers.

  7. Oh you had me at Dollar Store! LOVE the amazing things you can find in the 99 cent and dollar stores. Also -- the bows on the reindeer? Brilliant!
    And it all looks quite posh!

  8. It's been a while since I've been to the dollar store, but always seem to find a lot of neat things. You're right about this time of year being able to find a lot of Christmas bargains there. Your glittered deer are so pretty too!

  9. How adorable, Marty! Guess I'd better trot my little self over to the 99 cent store and Dollar Tree sooner rather than later! The Dollar Stores around here get empty shelves pretty early, & it doesn't matter that it isn't even Thanksgiving yet! Our chilly weather is certainly doing wonders to put me in the holiday spirit!

  10. Why do these items look better in your house than in the store? haha

  11. Thanks for the heads up - I'm headed out to the dollar tree and 99 cents store this afternoon before they're sold out!

  12. Marty, I love the reindeer with the bows! What a great find! I'm going to scope our Dollar Tree, 99 cent, Dollar Store, etc. for something like that.

  13. You are picking just the kind of pieces that I love. My go to Christmas colors are gold, silver and blue (especially Tiffany blue ;) ) I typically go to Target or pick some pieces here and there at West Elm or ZGallerie, if the budget allows. Over the years I have picked a few decor items, which I just replenish in case something breaks while in storage. I can't wait to see your Christmas tree.

  14. I love Dollar Tree. You definitely got the best of what they have to offer and it all looks great in your home.

  15. I'm a Dollar Tree junkie! Love the reindeer!

  16. I'll have to get some of those votives for myself, Marty. I think they will work out great in some of my decorating plans for Christmas. I have to tell one of the woman I work with about the votive holders. She just was saying she is going to do a silver and gold theme and a few of these would work out great for her.

  17. Oh my, Marty! The reindeer is so beautiful with the silver bows, and I love the price......thanks for sharing this! Have a Happy Thanksgiving~hugs, Poppy

  18. How pretty those bows look on the reindeer. Who would ever have thought that any of these items came from a $ store. Well done, Marty. laurie

  19. Such great finds Marty! I also LOVE the dollar store!!

  20. HI Marty! Oh, those are some very cute little reindeer and the votives are darling!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  21. Wow! Great finds, Marty! I've got to get to the dollar store :)

  22. Those are darling Marty! Gotta love the dollar tree this time of year! Merry Christmas. Thanks for joining our party.
