Dollar Tree Tablescape

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!
