How To Decorate A Christmas Tree on a WalMart Budget....literally!

I love Christmas!  As much as I love Thanksgiving, I am ready for Christmas to come the day after Halloween!  I am one of those people.  Come November 1st, the tree is up, the Christmas music is blaring and the holiday baking is in full swing!

I really wanted to update my Christmas Tree decor this year but couldn't convince my husband to let me spend a lot of money on it.  I headed to WalMart and Hobby Lobby and bought a new tree and decorated it all for under $200 {that's including the tree!}.  Compared to all the Pottery Barn Christmas Tree decor I've been drooling over, it's a pretty good deal. ;)

Here is how I decorated my Christmas Tree on a WalMart budget:

100 of the BEST Ways to Use Essential Oils!

I am still pretty new to using Essential Oils, but now that the colder months are coming I am ready to get back on the bandwagon!  I just started using essential oils this past year but still wanted to learn more ways to use them.  It seemed like our family spent so much time being sick last winter, that I am not going to let it happen again!

My favorite essential oils are Spark Naturals.  They are so affordable but are still made of the purest, high grade oils!  Other oil companies charge an arm and a leg for their products, but I get the same (or better) results using Spark Naturals!  The even have some amazing blends of oils so you don't have to worry about figuring out how to do it yourself!

Here are 100 of my favorite ways to use essential oils:

DIY Home Address Sign

We have been trying to do a few things to improve the curb appeal of our home.  
One of the first things you noticed upon walking up to our house was the terrible address sign.  Seriously, it was so bad.

I chiseled the old address sign off the side of our house and took matters into my own hands!
Here's how I made this DIY home address sign:
