Pottery Barn Decor on a Dollar Tree Budget!

Back in This post I mentioned how I was going to recreate a lot of Pottery Barn Christmas looks, for a lot LOT less. Well here is my take so far!

Theirs - Bosphorus Bowl: $39.00 Bell Vase Filler $19.00 Total: $58

Mine: Dollar Tree 9 pack of bells $1 ( I bought 3 packs) Total= $3 and I like my bells better!
Theirs: Large Arches Lantern: $69.00 Pottery Barn 3x6 Candle: $6 Total $75
Mine: Pottery Barn Lantern: $11 at the outlet, gumdrop vase filler: FREE from the yard! Candle: Left over from our wedding Total: $11
Theirs: Metallic Pinecone Vase Filler: $8.00 Total $8.00

Mine: Metallic Pinecone Vase Filler: $FREE

I took last years cinnamon scented pinecones and gave them a quick spray with metallic silver spraypaint. I dusted some of them with a little of my favorite Martha Stewart white gold glitter


Theirs: Faux Snow Vase Filler: $12.00 for 5 oz.
Theirs : Beaded Snowflake Ornament: $10.00
Mine: Faux Snow Vase Filler: FREE I bought it last year for about $2.00 (I bought a big bag from Hobby Lobby and reuse the same snow) Glittered Snowflake Ornaments: 2 for $1 at The Dollar Tree I have these all over my house! Total: Approx $3 I could have at least cleaned the snow and glitter off of my table! Sorry y'all!

  13. THAT was awesome!!! I LOVE Pottery Barn, but I just cannot afford any of their prices. I try and do the same thing as much as possible. You've really done a great job recreating the same looks.

    Just visiting from the Christmas Tour of Homes.
