DIY Easter Centerpiece, Bunny in a Basket

It’s crazy to think that it’s already time to start thinking about Easter! In a lot of area’s I know the snow is still blowing and thoughts of spring chicks and bunnies might be few and far between – but trust me! It will be here before you know it! I don’t know if it’s getting older, having kids or always looking ahead thanks to the blog but time just seems to go faster and faster every year and I know for a fact that if I don’t start preparing for holidays early I’ll be completely rushed and stressed out when they catch me byRead More →

A dollar Store decoupage sign with doilies and mod podge

Decoupage is a crafting style that I have been considering for a while now. Over the years I have seen so many cute items created in this manner and you really can’t get any easier supply wise then paper and glue right? However, it wasn’t until I walked into Dollar tree, saw some Mod Podge and recalled this super cute post by Bexa that I decided to really give it a try! A dollar store decoupage project seemed like a perfect addition to our Dollar Store Craft series! This is a craft project that I feel would be great for any age! There are no hotRead More →

DIY Valentines Day Wreath from the Dollar Tree #Valentinesday #DIY #Crafts #dollartree #dollarstore #DIYValentinesdecor

I love holidays. Not only are they great for family bonding and spending time together but they give me an excuse to craft. And visit the Dollar Tree. Not sure which one I love more, to be honest! Since starting this blog the monthly Dollar Tree craft has become one of my favorite features to write and this DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath is no exception. I’ve found that spending time doing something creative a few times a month is the perfect way to relax. Sometimes it’s nice to just sit down and create something beautiful. As a neat side effect, I have also discovered that beingRead More →

DIY Dollar Tree Christmas Globe

Now that it’s December I feel 100% justified in posting another Christmas craft! To be honest, if my budget would allow me too I would probably post a new Christmas craft every day this month. The Christmas spirit has hit me hard this year and my jaunts around the Dollar Tree have left me will so many ideas. The hardest part about making this Dollar Tree Christmas Globe was putting back all the other ideas I had collected in my cart (for now anyway!) This project is slightly more involving then our earlier Deer Diorama craft but not by much! But it doesn’t contain anyRead More →

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 →

dollar store halloween vase header

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 →

Fall Dollar Store Craft - Putting autumn in a bottle

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. The lack of bugs, the colors on the trees, pulling out my cozy sweaters and it’s boot season. I love my leather boots! Fall also brings with it the holiday season, it’s a time of year when we get to spend time with loved ones, eat good food and be thankful. There is no doubt that fall is a wonderful season and all good seasons deserve decorations! Everybody whoRead More →

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 →
