Christmas is almost here – I’m sure you’re already being visually assaulted from all direction with Christmas decor and style. Well, I’m here to throw a bit more at you. 😉
You see, this is the first apartment I’ve had where I live with a boyfriend (a boyfriend who has great taste, nonetheless), rather than a group of roommates, who are either all heading somewhere else during the holiday or have already hijacked the common areas with their decorations.
We are going out of town and we did want to save money, but we still wanted to decorate the place for Christmas. The perfect solution, being in LA, is the Dollar Store! (AKA “99 Cents Only Store.”)
There happens to be a surprising selection of cute holiday decor to choose from at the Dollar Store.
We decorated our branch antler plaque that we made last month (which we have yet to make a head for…) as well as our diy chandelier and our fake fireplace which was found on the side of the road. There’ll be a post about that one someday. 😉
Check out the gallery below to see what all we were able to do with about $20 for a cheap Dollar Store Christmas!
