Hey everyone! I did a Dollar Tree mini haul of mini Christmas trees, ornaments, and more to decorate for the holidays with my sister! We filmed ourselves decorating our mini trees and I love how they turned out.
I know, I know. It’s only OCTOBER and Halloween hasn’t even passed yet… I’ve been hearing that Dollar Tree’s best holiday/Christmas items–especially for DIYing–sell out by the second week of November!
My tree (the blue one) ended up being around $6 total and Sarah (my sister) ended up building hers with about $4 total.
The only mini christmas tree skirt option from Dollar Tree was red and the bottom side was also showing the red so we decided to DIY our own christmas tree skirts.
It was fairly simple, you’ll only need some kind of material to cut to the side of the bottom of your Christmas tree, good scissors, and patience. Well, if you have better scissors than I did, you won’t need as much patience haha.
Best of luck in your own DIY decor/Dollar Tree holiday hauls and hope you have a wonderful holiday season! xx Sam
Hey guys! I got to explore the Kancamagus Highway (112) in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, one of America’s most scenic byways to view fall foliage around peak times.
Here’s the video:
There are many stops along the 56 mile stretch you can take and I went to a few that sounded/looked good as we drove by.
We were stuck in 3 hours of traffic just going back down the mountains so I made a quick guide in hopes of helping people who come across this avoid the same fate while in these beautiful mountains.
My Mini Guide:
– If you think you’re going early enough go even earlier! Make sure you have a FULL TANK of gas once you’re in the area and pack a meal/snacks just in case you get stuck too.
– Grab the map if you see it! We had no service the entire highway so it literally saved us. Ricky got it from someone in a visitor center rest stop on the way before Loon Mountain.
– If I could redo it I’d start by driving down to the far end toward Rocky Gorge then turn around to make the stops on the way back to Loon Mtn so if you do hit traffic it’s not as bad as later (and you can scope out what stops you’d like to do) *Also, don’t leave at 3PM, that’s how we got stuck just going back down for 3 hours!
– Avoid Pemigewasset Overlook, it’s beautiful but unless you get a roadside spot, the parking lot becomes a 1 lane in/out jam if it’s busy/getting full.
