Festive Ornament Holiday Wreath: This Holiday Wreath adds the perfect amount of shine, sparkle, and color to any space. Best of all, it’s extremely inexpensive and super simple to craft!

Holiday Wreath

Using 3 boxes of $4 Big Lot’s ornaments (varying sizes), I simply hot glued the ornaments onto this wreath frame I found at Big Lots (it was previously covered with tinsel).

I absolutely LOVE how everything came together; the various colors and textures add such a festive touch.

Decorative Gifts: Use gifts as decor to add Holiday cheer to your kitchen table, bookshelf, mantel, etc. Using wrapping paper and dazzling ribbon I found at Big Lots, I wrapped a few gifts to use as Holiday decor.

Pine Cone Garland: This Pine Cone Garland adds the perfect modern touch to every space. Attach this garland to your shelf, above the door, or around the tree. Best of all, all supplies needed to make this garland can be purchased at Big Lots for under $25. For DIY instructions, be sure to visit my most recent Big Lots Post Holiday Decorating on a Dime.

  4. So pretty, would love to make ornament wreath, use all old ornies I don’t use anymore. All your decorations are so pretty and go with all you have up. The pine cone garland is also great, love good old pine cones.
    After seeing how little was in bag at Michaels of cinnamon scented I thought shoot, will do my own. Have a small bottle of cinnamon spray so laid bunch out on paper yesterday to spray away. They’re sitting on chair by me and they smell so good. Can have as many as I want for nothing.
    Will be making some kind of banner using pine cones soon.
    Happy week and season

  5. These are great ideas, very festive!

  6. I love all of your festive decorating ideas. That bauble wreath looks amazing!

    Have a wonderful week and please feel free to stop by and say g’day if you have a a minute to spare.

  7. This is so simple, and I love Big Lots prices. I must go check them out this weekend and do this. Appreciate the festive idea!

  8. When I first started out, Big Lots was a place I frequently visited for decor. Love how your wreath came out!

  10. What a beautiful wreath. I would not have thought to make my own holiday decorations.

  11. Such a simple and easy project to do. I’d love to make these and give them away for gifts. I’m going to stock up at the end of the season to get them on huge clearance!

  12. I am all about the simple holiday decor! A few years ago, I actually spent an entire weekend making garlands to hang around the house and of course they pretty much fell apart while they were in storage, so I couldn’t use them the next year. Now it’s all simple things!

  13. I am not quite ready to decorate but when I am, I will be heading to Big Lots! I have one right up the street from me so it will be convenient to get some great decorations.

  15. Everything looks beautiful! I love decorating for Christmas, but I think I’m in the minority, that, I refuse to decorate until the day after Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving and it gets lost between Halloween and Christmas. Sigh. I do leave my Christmas decorations up through mid-January, though.

  16. Can you come over and decorate my house next? You’re obviously awesome at it. Everything came out great.

  17. Oh that is all so pretty! I love the wreath you did! We have a Big Lots in the next town over from us, but I have not been there for a long time. I am going to head over and see what I can find!!

  18. Wow you are an amazing crafter! I like to try but my projects never turn out as good as yours! I love shopping at Big Lots. They always have such good deals.

  19. Perfect holiday décor! Very pretty! I love shopping Big Lots all year around for things I need for home décor, especially around the holidays, great buys!

  20. That wreath is gorgeous. I have one like it, but I did not make it. I also have the cone trees put out. I love all the ideas for over the Fireplace!
