The other day I posted this picture of what I purchased at the Dollar Tree to complete a submission for the Challenge over at Debbiedoos...
A silver plastic platter, Epsom salts, 2 candles, some acrylic snowflakes in assorted colours and sizes, a vase, some silver berry picks and some aqua glass beads - in total I spent $15 for this challenge. I knew I wanted to complete a table scape for my new dining room table - and you must keep in mind that the Dollar Tree here in Canada sells items for $1.25 and not $1.
Two of the snowflakes are at least 8-10 inches in size. First I layered a piece of aqua fabric down on my tabletop. Next I placed the tray in the center and them the two large snowflakes on either side of it. On top of the two large snowflakes I placed the candles in the center of each. On the center of the tray I placed the vase which I filled with the Epsom salts and then added some of the glass beads, and then into the vase I placed the 4 silver berry sprigs. Then I randomly placed the other snowflakes on the tray and tabletop and then sprinkled some Epsom salts on top of the fabric and added the glass beads randomly as well.
I really love the aqua and silver colours - it has an icy effect that I can use not only through the holidays, but long after in the winter months as well. I have a few supplies leftover...watch for another project soon! Are you linking up to the Dollar Tree challenge? If so, I'll see you there!
