Make your rolled paper circles
- Cut paper into 1″ strips.
- Fold strips lengthwise into overlapping thirds.
- Put a little glue along the inside the paper roll.
- Hold the end of the strip with tweezers or needle-nose pliers.
- Use the tweezers to roll up the strip, folded (glue) side in.
- At the end of the roll, add another little blob of glue and hold for a minute to secure.
- Put a hair clip on the paper roll for a few minutes to hold it in place while the glue dries.
- Set paper roll on a non-stick surface until glue is dry.
Make a bigger circle
If you want to make circles of various sizes, lengthen the paper strips by inserting the end of one inside the other and securing with glue. Roll as above. If the rolls are really long, put glue along a segment, roll, then continue putting glue on the next segment.
Use your rolled paper circles for various craft projects, pictures, ornaments, and more!

Thanksgiving is almost here so this month’s $10 at Target is all about prepping for the holidays! It’s such a busy time of year, it’s nice to have a few things ready ahead of time.
Welcome to the $10 at Target Link-Up! Some of my blogging friends and I head to Target each month with a budget of $10 and share what we find in the linkup. Join in the fun! Link up below then check out what the other hosts have found this month!
Prepping ahead for the holidays can make such a huge difference in your stress level this time of year. As I headed into Target, my goal was to find things that would make the holidays easier. The Dollar Spot had so many great finds that really helped me out!
I found small red jingle bells that could be used for SO many different things. I got three packages.
You can use these little bells as ornaments on a small tree! Check out this Kitchen Christmas Tree tutorial!
I found this awesome wooden tree which could be painted and decorated or left plain. Such a fun piece!
Also, this little Christmas countdown block is so fun! I love the little chalkboard on here. It’s a great finishing touch for so many places!
Do you love books? Holiday books are one of my favorite traditions! The pictures in these books are wonderful! I can’t wait to read them with my kids.
Great finds for prepping for the holidays!

Kitchen Christmas Tree
Make your kitchen Christmas tree
- Create the garland by threading a needle then sew pompoms onto thread. Alternate red and white, leaving small spaces between.
Cookie Cutter Ornaments
- Tie a ribbon around the top of each ornament.
- Take a second piece of ribbon about 5″-6″ long and thread through the ribbon you already tied.
- Tie the second ribbon at the top to create a hanger.
- Optional: save the angel for the top of the tree.
Hang jingle bells
- Cut lengths of fishing line about 4″ long.
- Tie on jingle bells for hangers.
Round paper rolls
- Make round paper rolls.
- Cut 3″-4″ lengths of fishing line.
- Fold in half and tie at the end.
- Glue the end of the fishing line to the back of the paper circle.
Decorate the tree
- “Fluff” your tree by spreading out the branches then bending the ends slightly upward.
- Put the fairy lights on the tree, leaving a little extra wire at the top to attach tree topper.
Regular tree lights work too but these tiny lights are nice because the cords don’t show and since they’re battery operated, you can put the tree wherever you want.
- Place the angel or star on the top of the tree. Use the extra wire from the lights to secure.
- Add pompom garland.
- Hang the cookie cutters, spacing as desired.
- Add the jingle bells and paper rolls.
- Complete your display with little wrapped boxes or other decorations.
Enjoy your kitchen Christmas tree!
