Dollar Tree Decorating

Happy Valentines Day.  Whoops, I missed that one - again.    I woke up this morning thinking I have to post a couple of my projects and realized that I never posted this one.  I was in my garage before Christmas and noticed   this old tool box.  I totally forgot we owned it.  I remember we purchased it in Colorado from a nice man at a yard sale.  Oh my, it must have been at least twenty years ago.  I did have to break it to my husband that I  relocated his nails for this project.



This was my Dollar Tree haul before Valentines Day.  Some pretty white roses (I really fell in love with them), white candles, succulents, pretty rocks, and, fish bowl votive.



I started with some burlap ribbon I got at Walmart for only three dollars.  I wrapped it around the whole thing and tied a big bow.  I really loved how it turned out.  


I put my pretty white roses in a mason jar and just popped them in.  I alternated them with a pillar candle that I wrapped with just a little twine,  It was so very inexpensive and turned out  so pretty.  I put a red heart in one of the jars for just a pop of color.



The Dollar Tree always amazes me.  You don't have to spend a lot of money to get an elegant centerpiece.


I'm always a late bloomer, so, I did finally get an assortment of these little guys.  I love succulents I have always wanted terrariums, but, I know I will kill them.  I don't have a green thumb, mine is plastic.



These couldn't be easier.  Just pop them out of that plastic pot and put them into a small fish bowl votive with pretty rocks.



Awwwwe, so pretty.  I get so many compliments on this one.



I did get a few different ones and decided to group them together in a little urn.  I love the way it turned out.




Well, I know this is late, but, I hope this has motivated you to go to the Dollar Tree and do some decorating.  Let me know what you have done, I would love to come over and see.   Have a very Blessed Day.
