Dollar Store Holiday Decor - It's a Candy Can Christmas in the Kitchen

 Good Morning! Today is Dollar store Decor Day! Check out all these goodies I found at my local Dollar Tree.

 I added some candy canes and large glittered candy ornaments to this centerpiece.

These pot holders were at the Dollar Store too and I made hearts with the fake candy canes and added the glittered candy as a bow. 

Just added a glittered bow and some candy ornaments to these glass jars. 

Look at these cute towels and the heart candy ornament hanging in the middle. 

Here is the whole kitchen. I used their ribbons to hang from the tops of the cabinets with a glittered bow and some of the candy ornaments too. Topping them all off with the wrapping paper in the center of the cabinets.

Here is a close up of the cabinet decor.

 The inside of the top of the cabinets. These are Command Strips Hooks, small ones for the Christmas lights strands.

Thanks for looking! Please leave a comment below or follow my blog on the right hand column. ----->
