Make Incredible Holiday Decorations At The 99 Cents Store

Sprucing up your home for the holidays can not only be time-consuming but pretty pricey.

Armed with creativity and a few bucks, I recently hit up a 99 cents store in Midtown, where I went on a quest to bring you some holiday cheer for cheap!

Aluminum trays can certainly serve up some great finger food for your holiday party, but did you ever think of transforming one into a nifty wreath? Cutting a hole in the center of a chip & dip tray and decking it out with some garland and a bow

What you will need:

• Round aluminum tray

• Decorative garland

• Bow

Trash bags already serve their role in the holiday cleanup, but they could also serve a role in creating that special holiday friend. Fill three white medium-to-small trash bags with crumpled newspaper. Then pile each bag on top of one another (you could use clear masking tape to hold them in place). Top off the highest bag with a Santa hat and wrap it in a scarf. Finally, give him a pair of eyes and smile and say hi to Frosty!

What you will need:

• 3 White garbage bags

• Black sharpie

• Santa hat

• Scarf

Grab a few colorful ornaments – the bigger the better. Tie each piece with gift wrap ribbon and simply hang them above the doorways of each threshold in your home. It will not only add holiday flare to your room, but won’t let your doorway celebrate the holiday’s alone.

What you will need:

• Colorful ornaments

• Ribbon

Finally, what’s Christmas without Jolly Old Saint Nick! Pick up a red Christmas Tree Removal Bag at the dollar store. Cover it over a chair in your home, preferably one with a tall back. Stuff it with pillows and fasten the loose bag with clips at the back of the chair. add a few Santa Clause accessories (pair of gloves, black belt, white Christmas tree skirt for his cuffs and fur collar). Top it with a cut out of a Santa Clause face – usually a variety of dollar stores sell Santa faces in different sizes as door decorations. After adding your own splash of creativity – you’ll soon have the most popular guest at your next holiday party.
What you will need:

• Christmas tree removal bag

• Black belt

• Santa face cut out/door decoration

• White Christmas tree skirt

• Green/brown mittens
