Happy Under $10 on the 10th! Our theme this month is Christmas and boy do I have something fun and super easy for you. A Christmas Tree in a bag!

My niece lost her home to a fire this past August.

They lost everything and are now living in an RV until their home can be rebuilt.

Since they are in an RV space is limited, which got me to thinking that just because they were in an RV didn’t mean they couldn’t decorate for Christmas.

So I came up with a Christmas Tree in a bag.

Dollar Tree Christmas Tree

Step 1

You could get away with only one tree, however I find them to be a little on the skimpy side.

So I bought two.

Take the tree out of the box, lay it on a table or counter top and “fluff” the tree, leaving the back side flat on the table.

Step 2

Repeat step one on the second tree.

Once that is done remove the tree leg holder from the bottom of one tree.

Step 3

Take the two trees and lay the flat sides together, forming one tree.

Then using three or four small black zip ties, tie the trees together forming one tree.

Cut off any excess from the tie ends.

Tree Feet

Step 4

Slide the tree feet into the tree base.

Step 5

Pop the tree and all the accessories into a bag.

Add a cute ribbon and a tag and your Christmas tree in a bag is ready to go!

I think that these bags would be great for shut ins or the elderly, co-workers, college students or small children for their rooms.

The possibilities are endless!

So how much did all of this cost?

Well, I admit that I went over – by .89 cents!

That did not include the bag, I used one of the 100 I had on hand in my wrapping station.
