It’s our family tradition to decorate our home for Christmas the Saturday after Thanksgiving. I love decorating for Christmas, I always have. When I was little, I was lucky enough to decorate at my house and my grandparents house each year! I remember being so excited while slowly unwrapping each delicate ornament for the tree.
This year, I wanted to add to some of my decorations, but still be cost conscious. Isn’t it expensive to buy some of the Christmas decor from major retailers? I find myself having sticker shock when I see a bird nest ornament at Target for over $7 and see the hot glue holding the bird from falling out of the nest! Ugh!
While shopping at the local 99cent store, I found garland snowflakes and a string of 20 white lights for .99cents each! Project!
I first unwrapped the light string and started to gently push each light into the plastic spaces between the snowflake garland, I did this until every bulb was stuck in place. That’s all this project took! It was so easy and I got 4 light up snowflakes for $2 each!
When do you start decorating for the holidays?
