Table scatter (or, confetti) — those little packages of loose decorative bits — is a great holiday decorating supply to have around, because you never know when it is going to come in handy. The Dollar Tree has several different bags filled with all types of glittery table scatter that can be used around the house in so many ways– and they are only $1. I picked a bag of variety table scatter so that I could do a variety of decorating projects with it.
To complete any of these projects you are going to need a single bag of table scatter. The Dollar Tree has several holiday-themed choices including red stockings, green ivy, white snowmen, gold angels and brown reindeer, and they come in a variety of sizes per bag.
Here are five ways to use table scatter to decorate the house, create crafts, and embellish gifts.
Embellish plain Christmas cards with glittery table scatter to give them dimension and sparkle. Even if the cards do not match any of the table scatter pieces exactly, you can get creative and add them as additional decoration.
Christmas cards are not the only things that can be embellished with table scatter. Include glitter table scatter in your scrapbooking materials to help you put together pages featuring family holiday photos.
Customize candle holders of any size with the help of a hot glue gun. I applied stockings of alternating sizes around the top of this tall glass pillar candle holder to add color and sparkle. Decorate according to your existing holiday decor, but the glitter table scatter from the Dollar Tree comes in classic Christmas designs that fit in well with most color and decor choices already being used in your home.
Embellish bows and headbands to create easy and festive hair adornments for children in just a few minutes. Directly adhere single pieces of table scatter to the center of a bow or side of a headband using hot glue. I used a glittery red stocking, but you can also use the angels or green ivy.
Adding a gift tag to gifts is the part that makes your gift personal. So even if you have to buy a stack of similar tags, you can give them a little sparkle with table scatter. I took some plain gift tags and used a glue stick to add ivy, stocking and angels to the corners of each tag. This way it gave each tag a little sparkle and dimension, but still left space for me to write out the recipients name.
There are so many ways to use table scatter, and the glittery bags of scatter from the Dollar Tree give you enough materials to complete several projects. Have fun decorating and creating!
