Dollar Tree Christmas Decorations, a Reindeer Diorama

Well, it’s not even November yet but here we are surrounded by Christmas stuff when we walk into the store! I can’t even say I’m mad about it. It just means I have more time to craft and collect it all. Especially the reindeer – I LOVE reindeer at Christmas. Some people collect Snowmen or Santas but for me, it’s always been about the Deer. To say I was excited when I found out that Dollar Tree Christmas decorations were already on the shelves was a bit of an understatement! Obviously, I had to hustle straight over to check it out. There is so much! IRead More →

But Kristin! You have already done a Dollar Store craft post this month! I know..but it’s the month of Halloween! It’s my favorite holiday! One craft is not enough! You can probably expect more than one for Christmas too. Just think of it as a bit of extra fun. Plus, the Dollar Tree this year had so many great Halloween items that you’re all probably lucky I didn’t do an entire month of Halloween crafts. If it wasn’t for my self-imposed Dollar Store budget while shopping I probably would have. The entire house would end up a Halloween wonderland. For the sake of my husband’sRead More →

Who loves Fall? I know it’s a season I look forward to every year! Okay, maybe I miss the beach and swimming and I never really look forward to being cold. But! I love fall anyway.

three tier tray completed

I have been looking for a nice three tier stand for my table for a long time. I have always liked the way that they look and I love that they can be customized to match the seasons or holidays that might be coming up.  While I have found some nice pre-made ones in my travels they were always too expensive or just not quite what I was looking for. Clearly, it was time for a DIY project and what better place to get the supplies for it then your Local Dollar Tree? The Dollar Tree is my go-to spot for home decor on a budget.Read More →

the fuzz monster desk organizer

I have figured out that my kids are more likely to keep organized if they have a cute way to do it. This started with our one of a kind coat-rack but now that they are getting older needs to be applied to their rooms as well. My kids bring home and require so many more supplies due to school and by the end of the year, these supplies get everywhere. Thankfully the DollarTree had me covered when I went in search of a solution. Cute and easy to make this desk organizer has been a big hit! Most noteworthy is that it can be madeRead More →

With the 4th of July coming up I knew I wanted to do a fun little craft to celebrate. We don’t go all out for household decoration for these holidays the way we do for Christmas and Halloween but it’s nice to put a few small touches here and there. Of course, me being me, I turned to the Dollar Tree for inspiration and came up with this very easy, very cheap but very pretty 4th of July Sand Art vase and centerpiece. The Dollar Tree has been my go-to source for fun holiday decorations for a while now. With everything priced at a dollarRead More →

Wire wrapped Jewelry Tree

It’s recently come to my attention that I have too much jewelry and not enough places to put it. A real problem right? I thought about getting a Jewelry Box but that seemed dull and overdone. I wanted something different. While browsing Pinterest I noticed a few wire-wrapped trees. People were using them for decoration or as earring holders. It didn’t look too difficult. I figured I could easily make a Jewelry Tree of my own design and I wasn’t disappointed, turns out the Dollar Tree had everything I needed. I will admit, at first, my ‘tree’ wasn’t very impressive. It was gangly and kind ofRead More →

DIY dollar store spring wreath

I have always loved the wreaths I find in stores. The thought of having such a fun and seasonal decoration to greet visitors when they come to my house was endearing. Unfortunately, the price of these wreaths was not nearly so appealing. So, with some inspiration from a fellow blogger and a bit of research on Pinterest I set about to create a Dollar Store spring wreath as this months craft project. I think I am in love with this project. Not only because it makes my door so fun and colorful but because of the endless options there are in making it. Because ofRead More →

DIY Spring Planter from the Dollar Tree

I have to say I love my trips to the Dollar Tree. All those supplies for such a cheap and affordable price just get’s my creative juices flowing. For this month’s DIY Dollar Tree craft I knew I wanted to do something spring related. It might not be spring quite yet, but it’s close enough! Fortunately, the Dollar Tree had me covered, they had just pulled out all their spring planting and gardening supplies. A DIY Spring Planter seemed like the perfect choice for this spring oriented craft. This craft requires pretty much no artistic talent what so ever. If you can use a glue gunRead More →
