I like decorating my home for Christmas, but I usually don’t want to spend a lot of money doing so. So today I’m happy to be joining my blogging friends for the Dollar Store Craft Challenge | Christmas Edition. I’ve always liked the look of mini Christmas wreaths on kitchen cabinets, so I decided to make that my project for this challenge.

This is a very “light” craft project for me. In the rush of the season, I almost forgot that this blog hop is today! But luckily, it’s a snap to put these wreaths together! I was able to get these wreaths up just yesterday!
For my wreaths, I picked up 4 dollar store wreaths, some Christmas ribbon, two packages of snowflake ornaments and a package of silver bells.
How to Hang Wreaths on Kitchen Cabinets
To decorate my wreaths, I simply hung three snowflakes on each wreath — the snowflakes each already had a loop of thin sparkly string to hang them from. To hang the wreaths, I cut 20 inches of ribbon for each wreath. I looped a ribbon around the top of each wreath and secured each ribbon with a knot at the top.
To hang the wreaths, I simply secured each wreath to the back of a cabinet door with some blue painter’s tape. (The tape was left over from when I recently painted my oak kitchen cabinets white.) I then let each ribbon with its attached wreath hang over the top and front of a cabinet door. Very easy!
To mix it up a little, I hung a cluster of jingle bells in the shorter, center cabinets that are above my kitchen’s microwave and stove. The jingle bells already had ribbon to hang them with, so I secured the ribbon to the backs of the cabinet doors like I did with the wreaths.
Kitchen Counter Christmas Decor
After decorating the cabinets, I took a moment to dress up a nook in my kitchen. I added a mini chalkboard sled that I use as a Christmas countdown calendar, cute snowmen salt and pepper shakers, a pretty blue snowflake cookie cutter, a lantern and a miniature wreath. (The canister with the oatmeal is a permanent fixture on the counter, as my daughters like oatmeal.)
