Good Morning, everyone! Yesterday I was in the market
for a Christmas Tree for my dining room. I knew I didn't
want a big tree and I knew I didn't want to pay a big
price for it either! So, I headed to Walmart
in search of the perfect tree! I know what you're thinking and
yes it would help if the trees were displayed with a little
more care. However, don't walk away so fast!
Because I'm going to show you how I used a $30
Christmas tree yesterday!
Let's keep a running tally of my expenses below!
Holiday Time Non-Lit 6 Ft Flocked Tree. Not a bad looking
tree in this picture, right?
I found this tree to be very easy to assemble
but a bit messy. That's to be expected with flocked trees.
Next comes the clear lights. I used 400 lights on this tree.
Purchased at Walmart for $2.50 a box.
I then wrapped the tree in burlap. Now Walmart has
burlap in the Christmas section but I went back to
the Floral area and bought a roll because it's cheaper.
Now comes the ornaments and again I'm creating this tree on
budget but I wanted it to have that WOW factor.
So I purchased 12 themed ornaments, one container of 50 plastic
ornaments, and 3 packs of glittered ornaments.
Final touch, flocked branches. You could
leave this off but I love the look. I already had
a tree skirt in my arsenal of Christmas decor. And here is the final
product! And I'm over the moon for this tree!
