Frugal Chritmas Ornaments

DIY Monday:
Christmas Tree

I am BACK from my Thanksgiving break! I'm so thankful for so many things, but I'm most grateful for my family....
Of course, they can drive me insane at times, but they still make my heart smile everyday :)


We always put up our Christmas decorations on Black Friday. When do you normally put yours up?

This is the first year Jaxson is really seeing all the Christmas Decorations since he was only 2-3 months old last year. He couldn't get enough of them. He laughed and wanted to grab EVERTHING. He loved the lights the most.

Madison always puts the star on our tree with Daddy's help :)

Here is our finished tree! I do not use glass ornaments. I've heard of kids chocking on the metal caps of the glass balls and passing away. I'm a worrier and rather play it safe. All my ornaments are plastic or metal. 

Our Glitter Star Burst Ornaments.

These ornaments value for $2.99 a peice. My husband worked at the store that sold them and after Christmas they gave him 2 small boxes full. We got over 40 of these ornaments for FREE!! They were on a display tree at the store and after the holidays they were just going to throw them away.

Frugal Tip: Stores throw away all display items after Christmas or sale them for dirt cheap. Ask the manager how you can get some display ornaments after the holidays. Great frugal way to have some great Christmas decorations.

I'm thinking of adding some pink and purple ornaments to our tree.

What color is on your tree?
Send pictures of your decorated tree to Will be featured on an upcoming blog post.


  1. What a pretty Christmas tree! Thanks for the awesome tip about display items :-)

    We are still dragging out the Christmas boxes from the shed. Most of my ornaments are little bears, Disney ornaments, wooden ornaments like toy soldiers. I love doing popcorn garland . . . half the fun is making it. I'll post some pics when we finally get it together!

    Have an awesome Monday . . . Gina
