Christmas is coming! Nothing brings in the holiday cheer like decorating your home or business. Even if you don’t have a lot of money, decorating is so much fun.

Dollar Store Christmas DIY Decor Ideas

Christmas cheer doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Annnd just because it didn’t cost much doesn’t mean it has to look cheap or tacky.

I have compiled a list of some cheery holiday decor ideas that can be created by an inexpensive visit to the Dollar Store but that still look classy and bring on the joy.
