DIY Deer Decor
These deer are just as cute as can be - and are even easier to make on your own. The best part? You can use supplies from the Dollar Store! Last year I hung 13 of these in random spots around my house and gave holiday guests a prize when they found all 13.
DIY Acrylic Deer Silhouette
Are you sensing a theme here? It's a tiny bit more complicated, but this DIY acrylic deer is well worth it! Made with paint, acrylic glass and battery-operated lights, it makes a big statement on a small budget.
DIY Gift Jar Toppers
These little candy jars make the perfect gifts for friends and neighbors, and they're super simple to customize when you use supplies from the Dollar Store. They also are just the right touch to add some holiday fun to a counter or mantle.
DIY Pom Pom Mistletoe
Making your own mistletoe is so incredibly easy, and the best part is that you can make it as fun and festive as you want! I love to add brightly colored pom poms to mine.
DIY Christmas Ornaments
These DIY Christmas ornaments are so cute and so easy to make. And they use supplies from the Dollar Store, so you can make as many as you want.

I have always loved this idea of hanging icicle lights from a hallway ceiling. I may have to try it this year. See what I'm talking about right here from Nest of Posies.
This Snowman Door from The Creative Stamper Spot has always been one of my favorites. I've done it on the outside before, but I love how hers is on the inside.
