I keep on saying I am finished with my Christmas decorations but really you know I 'm not. I'm never finished because there is just too much stuff to be repurposed and it seems to be right in front of me all of the time. Case in point what happened for this project.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. Today I am back again with my dollar store crafting buddies. You may remember we did this a while back and I made a beautiful dollar store fall wreath. Well today I am going to show you how to make a Christmas craft with dollar store items.
At the end of this project you'll be able to see what my friends did with their dollar store finds.
I had gone to my local Dollar Tree and seen so many pretty things I was itching to get started with this project. I left to go get some groceries and well, you know how that goes. When I came back a few days later it was like a different store. No fancy ornaments, no decor by the gallon. The only thing that was hanging on the walls was a whole lot of gift bags. Ugh!! You know how I like to wrap my own presents.
I looked all over the store and found some not so nice things and only one thing that really caught my eye. My dollar store items were these two glittery stars.
What I used:
My dad unearthed this old clock frame from the basement. As you can see it is worthless and it is also plastic. Something had to be done with it pronto! I had it lying around in my living room for a month, just taking up space till the time rolled around for this project. Once I had bought my stars home I knew just what to do with it.

I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
