THE queen of DIY décor has turned Dollar Tree buys into fabulous Christmas decorations for her kitchen cabinets.
Her method was damage-free and she just loved it, as did her followers.
She transformed the neutral palette of her kitchen into a festive winter wonderland.
Micah (@makeitwithmicah), who has 1.1 million followers on her TikTok, was bang up to date with her idea.
“Here is an affordable way to do the viral Christmas bows on your kitchen cabinets,” she began her post.
Using Dollar Tree items she created a festive atmosphere in her kitchen.
Her wreaths were easy to make and looked lovely when finished.
“Christmas décor for kitchen cabinets has been trending right now and I wanted to see if I could make an affordable Dollar Tree version,” she said.
First, she grabbed the basic constituents of her kitchen cabinet decoration idea: some garland, velvet ribbon, decorative bow, and a floral foam ring.”
Then she got to work.
“First I’m going to wrap one Dollar Tree ring foam with one Dollar Tree garland,” she said.
She used hot glue to attach it and left a two-inch gap for the ribbon.
“Next I cut the tails off this Dollar Tree bow and then I hot glue it on,” she said.
She avoided leaving any damage to the cabinets thanks to her painter’s tape hack.

Christmas Garland – $1.25 each
Velvet ribbon rolls – about $3 each

Take the floral ring and wrap the garland around it. Use hot glue to attach it at the beginning and the end.

When the festivities are over, the wreath can be easily removed without leaving lasting marks or damage.
