Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love everything about Christmas, especially exchanging thoughtful gifts with loved ones. But the expenses associated with Christmas can really start to add up, which is why I love DIY’ing some of my Christmas gifts. And what better place to buy budget-friendly supplies for Christmas DIY’s <<<hey, that rhymes 😉 than the Dollar Tree!
Dollar Tree DIY’s are my favorite because for just a few dollars and a bit of creativity, you can create a thoughtful gift that won’t go straight to the trash heap by New Year’s. (Because a macaroni necklace might be cute, but is your kids pre-school teacher actually going to wear it… Methinks not.)
In the spirit of giving, I decided to round up some of the best Dollar Tree DIY’s for Christmas 2017 – DIY’s that don’t look tacky, cost very little to make, and are actually useful and/or attractive 🙂

Wine Bottle Light from Whit and Whistle
