As is the case with many this year, our budget is tight. I wanted to dress up our outdoor areas for the holidays but I didn't want to spend the money on the usual mixture of greens and miscellaneous bits and bobs that I usually do. So I went to the Dollar Tree and found a treasure trove of goodies! The green poinsettias above are velvet, I opted for green as the window boxes will stay this way through winter. I also found the felt snowman scene. I stuck a few skewers in to keep the little family in place and good to go! The greens were snipped from some trees in the backyard.
All in all a very affordable project.
I also found faux holly and the gold Christmas tree at the Dollar Store. Mixed in some more of the free backyard greens and the front stoop is all set.
I snapped these photos quickly before work and neglected to straighten the tree. My neighbor was outside at the time I was taking these and I think he though I was crazy!
