Frugal Wedding Table Decorations

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Dollar Tree. All opinions are my own.

One thing that I love about shopping at my local Dollar Tree stores is that I never know what I will find. They seem to have new items every time I shop and each store often has different items.  I tend to find a lot of things that I can use for my craft projects.  It is a store that I can easily find some inspiration. With everything priced at just a dollar, it is also very frugal.

I saw these beautiful butterflies and thought that they would look great on champagne glasses for a wedding.  The glasses could then either be used to hold a beverage during the toast, to hold mints, nuts, or chocolates, or you could do what I did and fill them with marbles and a battery tea light.  At my Dollar Tree, they had the butterflies in several different colors and they were sold in packages of three.

I also found packages of six plastic champagne glasses.  The butterflies easily wrapped around the stems of the glass so I did not have to use any adhesive.

If you would like, you could print out the name of the bride and groom along with the wedding date on a small piece of card stock and attach it to the bottom of the glass with ribbon. If you filled the cups with chocolate or mints, they would make great wedding favors.

My Dollar Tree stores have many different types of little glass containers that would make great candle or flower arrangement holders.  I really like the shape of the square one that I used in this decoration.  I cut three strips of sheer ribbon long enough to go around the glass container. I equally spaced them and adhered them to the container using glue dots.  I then filled the container with some blue glass marbles and stuck one of the butterflies in the center of the marbles.  In the first picture in this post, I attached the butterfly to the outer rim of the glass instead. You could also put a battery operated tea light or because it is a glass container a regular candle would also work. You would just have to make sure the flame couldn’t get near the ribbon or butterfly.

I hope this post gave you some inspiration.  What do you love buying from your local Dollar Tree?
