Creating

Home Décor
The holidays are a wonderful time of the year to create an indoor winter wonderland with modern, traditional and country-themed schemes to decorate the front door, mantle, tree and everywhere else in your home.  Use garland, artificial trees, lights, pillows, throws, ribbons, bows, wrapping paper and so much more to accentuate your home this holiday.  Be sure to check out the Affordable Holiday Guide for the top 10 uses for Dollar General’s $1 ornaments for low-cost ways to decorate for the holidays.

Do-It-Yourself Items
Giving a meaningful DIY gift can be as much fun to make as it is to give!  Homemade treats can easily be made using $1 canning jars, $1 personalized labels and tasty cookie mixes. Another do-it-yourself gift includes picking up a Starbucks®, Apple® or other gift card and dressing it up with a festive $0.50 holiday greeting card.  Giving the gift of convenience is even easier this year with Dollar General’s new automatic renewal program.  Order items like coffee, diapers, pet treats and more and have items delivered each month to that someone special throughout the year.  Plus, take time this holiday to create memories with family and friends by making homemade items like cards and garland or decorate yummy treats.
