Despite the fact that we had planned on being in our new home and celebrating our first Christmas there, we wanted to continue our annual tree farm tradition.
We got a smaller tree since we are temporarily in my dad’s house. We brought it home and set it up but forgot we don’t have all our Christmas decor here.
I really didn’t want to lug all of our Christmas decorations over here just to pack them back up and bring them to the new house after the holidays.
Since I didn’t want to spend a lot but still wanted to be able to reuse this decor, we took a trip to the Dollar Tree. In their Christmas aisle, I found these fun Santa heads and Santa Gnomes!
I love the idea of having a themed tree but don’t usually have enough of any one type of ornament to create a full tree. This solved my dilemma of not spending a ton.
My oldest thinks the Santa heads are kind of creepy but I think they’re fun and charming with the different patterns on their hats.
While I was there, I let our youngest daughter pick a star for the top and I grabbed all of the white cross ornaments they had plus a few of the wooden words for fillers.
The best thing is that everything was just $1 each! I actually went to 3 different dollar stores to have enough for my tree. I really wanted more Gnomes but, sadly, they were out.
We had two strings of white lights in the basket with our tree skirt and tree stand so we didn’t spend any additional money on those items.
For our whole Santa Head themed Christmas tree decor this year, I spent a whopping $36.00!
I think this will be a fun theme to pull out for one of our smaller trees each year in the new house.
If you’re having a rough year and don’t have a lot to spend on Christmas decor, definitely check out your local Dollar Stores! You can find some unique items there and not spend too much.
