One of the prettiest parts of Christmas is the Poinsettia, the Christmas flower, but since we have a cat and a dog we can't have a real one. I wanted to find a way to add the poinsettia to our Christmas decor and I found my inspiration at the dollar store. I went into a different dollar store in a plaza I never go to and it was wonderful. It had so many aisles of Christmas and so many new things to look at, that I have not seen at my usual dollar stores. I am starting to think I go to the dollar store to much, but I love a good dollar store find. Did you know that Dollar Tree has a Christmas Catalog?
While looking at all the Christmas I came up with the idea for a poinsettia tree. I have made ribbon trees, burlap trees, and cupcake liner trees, but this time I am trying out a poinsettia tree. Plus this Christmas decoration has the great price of $4. I was going to create this on a foam cone, but the dollar store didn't have any so I took a chance with the tinsel tree and it turned out great.
