It's beginning to look a lot....

I love Christmas time!

Here are a few things that I have been working on around the house!
 I'm not sure I'm staying in my theme, but I am definitely meeting the challenge of keeping it really inexpensive!!

 My wood shingle wreath!

 I searched Hobby Lobby for a little inspiration for our front door wreath. I went in having no clue what I was going to make it out of...but as soon as I saw these, the light bulb when off!

They were $9.99 but that awesome 40% discount coupon came in handy!

This project was under $10

I got this fab trick from Brandi over at Don't Distrub this Groove

I love the way it came out!

I also made a few Christmas trees!

This tree is made using  a cemetery vase  from the dollar store and the  same wood shingles I used for the the front door wreath!

 This tree is out of the same book I used for my paper wreath!

 These beauties are made from a magazine and hard back book!

So far so good on budget, I have spent less than $20 for everything! Not bad looking either!
I'm always up for a little challenge! 

Here is a little peak at all the other goodies going on!
