Dollar Tree Saved Christmas ... $ TREE decorations

Year 2013 ...
I bought this sad, scrawny, rather weak Christmas tree which was a real challenge to decorate.

Dollar Tree came to the rescue and saved Christmas.

 Let's Party!

I bought 20 gold glittered reindeer and sprayed them white.

3 white Dove     

4 toy Slinky     

I stretched the white ones out and strung them across the tree for garland. They added sparkle.
The picks with the yellow and red berries that I stuck in the branches also came from Dollar Tree ...
as well as 2 strings of lights ...

... and here she is in all her glory. 
 ( of course, I stuffed and fluffed her a bit)

 I also used a tiny Slinky for a candle ring.

Wishing your a Happy $ TREE Christmas.
