It’s that time of year again! When all the fun spooky items start to show up in the Dollar Store and you start thinking about costumes!

Check out last years projects, a Spooky Halloween wreath, and a Spider Vase! The project was made up entirely on the spotRead 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! A lot of people seem very surprised at the items you can find at the Dollar Tree, I suspect that this is due to the preconceived notion that Dollar Store Items are cheap and poorly made. I don’t find this to be the case, here are 5 things you should definitely buy at the Dollar Tree! Warning: Super EXCITING sweepstakes link below!!! 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. Today’s dollar store fairy garden project is the perfect addition to your summer themed decor. Of course, it would also look quite lovely on a porch or balcony too! 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 →

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 →

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.

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 →

cards from the dollar tree

Anyone who has read this blog for any length of time knows about my undying affection for the Dollar Tree. I am sorry but a store where everything is a dollar? Yes, please. My trips to the Dollar tree have become something of a family joke. Comments like “Mom’s going to the Dollar Tree, better bring the tablet’s we’re going to be a while!” are uttered by the kids on a regular basis. But, it always astounds me just what I can find at the Dollar Tree. Last spring I got the cutest Fairy Garden figures and the spring wreath on my front door gotRead More →
