Dollar Tree and Cricut Christmas Decorations Throughout the House
Over the year, I mean many! years, I’ve been making some of my own Christmas decorations. This can get expensive, but if you can shop at the Dollar Tree and or use a Cricut cutting machine, you can produce some super looking decorations! And save some money to boot! I’ll confess that I’ve put all my decorations in here for you to see because I’m pretty proud of them. I hope you enjoy them as well as all the Dollar Tree and Cricut Christmas decorations throughout the house.

Snowmen are my passion for the winter months as it shows in all the tree ornies I’ve made over the years. I started several years back making the grandkids an ornament each year so they will have them to keep and remember ole MeeMaw every year at Christmas. Some are fabric, some are wooden and some are made with the Cricut machine. All are adorable and were mostly easy to make.
I’ll be the first to admit that snowman in the back is pitiful! He’s so ugly, he still makes the cut and is hanging on the tree, but in the back with the other not so good ornies that still get to hang.
I coffee stained terry towels and felt to make the snowmen heads. One is a glob of hot glue with beads and a piece of orange pipe cleaner dropped in quickly to make a face. Hey, the sock and circle with the snowman in the back look a little goofy , but I enjoyed making them and that’s what it’s all about, right?
Coffee stained muslin wrapped around lengths of heavy wire make the cutest primitive icicles and circle mirrors glued to fishing line add that much more sparkle to my tree.
Cricut Christmas Decorations
Last year, I bought myself a Cricut Maker and I have been loving that thing ever since! It was such a great addition to my crafting. I never dreamed how much I could do with it. I originally bought it to cut fabric, but have found that is the least I do with it so far! Check out my handiwork.
Dollar Tree frame and a thrift store find embellished with vinyl lettering.
I piece of scrap wood with a difficult to weed for a beginner! design. I stained it and wrapped the twine on one end to finish it out.
So there are a couple of Dollar Tree Christmas decorations in this photo.
After the card that came with the Cricut Maker, this was my very first project. I stenciled and it bled, but I was sooo proud!
I made all the tags for the presents.
Just a simple snowflake on a dollar store canister made a nice gift.
Fun to Make!
A piece of scrap luan with a vinyl design.
Dollar Tree battery candles with a vinyl design.
Another scrap of wood painted black with a vinyl design. I took Styrofoam balls and covered them with spackling then sprinkled them with glitter for the snowballs. It all looked so cute in the wagon!
Dollar Tree Christmas Decorations Throughout the House
I have become a Dollar Tree junkie! I’ve been to 4 different ones in my area and there is one more I’m dying to visit! Soon, very soon!
This is made of 2 frames from the dollar tree and some scrap wood we had in the stash. The ornaments and candle are from Dollar Tree and the greenery on top and greenery up the posts are from Hobby Lobby, half price!
So simple! Glue a wax melter and a vase from the Dollar Tree and embellish with a little DT greenery.
All the Rest
