It’s actually more of a public service announcement.
This weekend I went to the Target Dollar Spot hoping to pick up a few things to add to my Christmas decor.
Just a few.
But the bins were so full of amazing, cute, clever ideas to use for decorating, to use for crafts and to use for wrapping gifts that I couldn’t keep them all to myself.
I had to share.
And when I pushed my full cart through the check-out line, I told my husband not to worry…
…I was shopping for all of us. 🙂
I mean, seriously.
The red is kind of the perfect red.
It would look perfect on top of a stack of books or presents or used as a bookend in your bookcase.
2. Faux fur stockings
These came in the dark faux fur, a lighter faux fur and white faux fur.
They are a little smaller than your average stocking, but they have fur on both sides which is kind of amazing considering the price.
They would be adorable tied to the back of a chair with presents toppling out or tied in the center of a wreath with a Merry Christmas sign.
3. These Christmas stickers
They come in a package with one sheet and they are begging to be included with your Christmas cards.
One sticker sealing an envelope makes the card look like you are Mrs. Claus.
I thought they would also make cute tags if you cut out square pieces of paper from card stock, punched a hole and added a sticker.
4. These Spruce growing kits
I think these would make the perfect teacher gifts. Or gifts to have on hand in case you need something last minute.
The kit comes in a tin container with a tag already tied on ready to address.
Here’s the top of the kit.
The kits were $3 at the Dollar Spot.
Don’t try to buy any at my Target because I took them all. 🙂
5. Merry cut out
6. Noel cut out
They are really a good size for the price at about eight to ten inches long depending on the word.
You could paint the word and add it to a giant package on the front porch or stripe the merry or noel and add it to a painted canvas or cover it with scrapbook paper and add it to the tree.
7. These houses
8. These trees
If you see these houses at your Target, grab them before they are gone. They’re really good quality for the price. They are made out of ceramic with an opening in the back for a candle. They come in three different houses and the largest house is approximately seven inches tall.
These bottle brush trees are perfect to decorate your village with. They look much bluer in these pictures than in real life. They’re actually more of a silver color and they come in two different types of trees.
9. Fa La La La La
This was the cutest find.
It’s like a craft already made for you. My Target only had one and the frame is on the smaller size, but so worth it for the price.
I think it would make a cute last-minute gift, too (especially if you copied the hymn and wrapped it up in it).
10. These jingle bell clothes pins
I’m making an advent calendar from these pins and the tiny vellum envelope tags next to them.
They come in a package of four and the tags come in a package of six.
I’ll show you a step-by-step on how I made it this week.
11. This Christmas tree charger
You can see the size of it in the first picture and here’s a close-up of the tiny wood-burned tree at the top.
I think I’m layering mine in behind my white dishes on the hutch or you could use them as chargers on your Christmas table.
They would also make a cute Christmas gift if you painted a monogram on them and turned them into a front door decoration for a friend.
12. These cards
If you’re looking for inexpensive stationary, my Target had the cutest selection of cards.
I bought three sets.
And I may or may not make a banner from these Merry cards.
I can’t wait to show you how I styled all this in my house. I’m showing off my house next week all decorated for Christmas with a little help from the dollar aisle.
And who knows?
I may throw in a holiday yard sale tour of the house, too. 🙂
PS If you found anything at your Target that I missed, be sure and share. I’m always up for a second trip.
