A hodge-podge of kids crafts, clearance knick-knacks, and random gifts has made up our Christmas decor for as long as I can remember. I have always longed for a classy, cohesive look throughout our home, but brand-new holiday decor has just never been in my budget. And then I found Pinterest ... a site full of amazing holiday decor ideas made from a few simple dollar store items. Check out my 7 favorite projects and get decorating!

Clearly, I like the glass jar look. This one is super easy - just fill with pine cones, beaded necklaces, and ornaments. And, if you don't have enough to fill it, simply beef it up with a hidden toilet paper roll.
