Good morning, everyone!

Here we are, Monday morning, Thanksgiving just three days away.
So much to do!!!

This year, I decided to change my Holiday decor color scheme and, 
I don't know if that was such a bright idea! :)
I am really stressing now!
 There is tons of food to to prepare, many pies to bake,
last minute errands to run and our son will be home tomorrow!

So, what is a girl to do?
Of course, sit down and blog! LOL
 Best therapy ever!

Like I said, I wanted to do something different this year but not spend a lot of money changing everything, so the Dollar Tree came to the rescue.
 I had these metal vases I bought at Kirklands a while back during one of their big sales and only paid for them $5.00 each.
I knew I could do something with them! 

At Dollar Tree, I purchased little ornaments in
gold, red and green and some pretty ribbon.

And this is what I came up with

I wanted to add some branches, but they were very pricey in the stores, so my husband cut some from our yard and I used my favorite spray craft paint to give them a little bit of a Christmas look.

 To the branches I added tiny ornaments 
also from Dollar Tree.

 And here they are all dressed up for Christmas.

What do you think?
I was able to change the look of both vases for under $10.00
Can't wait to put it all together!
But, first, we have a huge Turkey to cook. :)

Thank all for visiting and, in case I don't get another chance this week, a very, very Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!


  1. They turned out so cute, Maria! I am heading to dollar tree later to get some supplies to make some stuff too! :) Best bang for your buck when your wanting to add more decor but not wanting to spend an arm and a leg! I hope to finish the rest of my crafts before Thanksgiving I better get busy!!

  2. You always come up with such fabulous ideas. I think these look great, and they look like they would have cost a fortune! You are so clever.

  3. It all looks beautiful. LOVE the branches!
