While you can buy a large variety of Christmas stockings in the store sometimes it’s nice to add a more personalized touch. This year while pulling out the Christmas stockings I realized that Connors was getting a bit beat up and since this is Echo’s first Christmas she didn’t have a stocking at all! Obviously this was a situation that needed to be fixed. It’s not like I needed much of an excuse for a fun artsy project. This DIY personalized Christmas stocking project was a bit of an experiment with Dollar Store items and I’m really happy with the way they turned out! InRead More →

The Dollar Tree has been adding a lot of great wooden forms to their stock lately.

Taking advantage of cheap craft supplies like this means you can create some truly spectacular and unique seasonal decor for a really reasonable price! Even better, it allows you to try this like this dollar store pour painting experiment without stressing about how it will turn out. If it goes wrong you’reRead More →

DIY Dollar Tree Christmas Wreath

It’s no secret that I love my dollar store projects and Christmas is one of my favorite times to indulge. This year one of the projects I wanted to try was a new Christmas Wreath. I have made dollar store wreaths for Halloween and Spring in the past but a Christmas wreath just kept falling through the cracks. Clearly it was time to fix that! I have always loved the Christmas bulb wreaths that others have made and wanted to incorporate that into my design along with some Christmas florals and Christmas tulle. This project is very simple and would be appropriate for even youngRead More →

DIY Halloween Potion Jars #Halloween #DIY #halloweendecor #fall #falldecor #spooky

It’s the little items that always make holiday decorations really stand out! Halloween is no exception to this and while I love my larger pieces, like our spider vase and glow in the dark wreath I can’t help but adore these hidden fun editions.

Decorating for Halloween is one of my favorite activities in the fall! Halloween is such a fun holiday, with so many decorating options (Fall, Spooky, Cutesy) that it’s almost impossible to get through all of them! There is a theme or an idea that will fit every family and their decorating ideas. This haunted house centerpiece from the dollar tree is no exception! If your family is looking for something spooky then you might switch out the cute felt stickers with tiny skeletons or spiders. You might create some foam tombstones instead of using fall trees and your house might be decorated a bit moreRead More →

Everyone knows I love the Dollar Tree! It’s pretty apparent to everyone I talk to and I have an entire section of this blog devoted to it!

In fact, I am writing this post today in partnership with the Dollar Tree to celebrateRead More →

Creating a Dollar Store Bullet Journal

Bullet journaling is as popular as ever and with good reason! Keeping a journal, either as a place to express personal thoughts or as a tool to help keep you organized is a highly beneficial activity. While some people have held back from starting a bullet journal due to creative fear (Don’t worry there are tips for that too!) others have more trouble justifying the cost. This is completely understandable! While the basic supplies needed to start a bullet journal are not overly expensive they can add up and it’s easy to be sucked into buying more specialized items. If you have been holding offRead More →

DIY Dollar Store Miniature Fairy Garden

Fairy gardens are a popular spring and summer project loved by both kids and adults! Since creating a large outdoor fairy garden last summer I have been planning a smaller indoor version.

To create this dollar store fairy garden I used cuttings from my older succulents. However, if you don’t have any and don’t want to purchase some, you can buy some fake ones at Dollar Tree! This also comes with the added bonus of makingRead More →
