Dollar Tree Crafting for Your Thanksgiving Table!

We no more than finished with Halloween and now it's time to decorate for Thanksgiving!  Yea!  Changing from one season to another with decor can be expensive...but it doesn't have to be!  If you have a Dollar Tree in your area, they can be a great place to start for decorating.  We have all seen blog after blog filled with wonderful Dollar Tree creations!

I was so inspired by these that I created my own table centerpiece with many items from Dollar Tree!

The glass vase was $1.00.  The leaves were $1.00.  The gourds and pumpkins were $1.00.
I spent $1.00 on a flameless candle.  I already had batteries (AA) for it and a bag of
spanish moss to fill inside the vase to lift up the candle.  I used some scrapbook paper I
had on hand to form a band around the vase.
My Dollar Tree didn't have small grapevine wreaths, so I had to go spend $1.44 for one
at Michael's Crafts.  While I was there, I fell in love with a little package of various sizes
of green pear vase fillers.  You see one on my vase.  Isn't it cute?!  They were $4.99 for a bag
full.  Considering how little I spent on the other items, I splurged! Total cost?  $10.43...but
get this...I made of 6 of them for that price!!  They are all over the house now in various places!

Have you made anything for your Thanksgiving table?
