Homemade Dollar Store Christmas Tree Christmas Craft

When I was growing up crafts was a big deal. We made all kinds of different crafts for Christmas decorations. It was a lot of fun to make Christmas crafts and I can remember being proud of all of the things we made together. I love being able to pass on these traditions with my grand kids. I hope you’ll enjoy making them with your kids and grand kids too. This simple Christmas craft for kids to make and it is very cheap to make. I got most of my supplies at Dollar Tree and Fred’s. Cheap isn’t always necessarily bad! I love to save money when I can!

Hi, I'm Dale. Some of the things I like to do are box, lift weights, and spend time with my beautiful wife Crystal. I also enjoy watching shows on Netflix or playing video games with my son when I can find some free time.
