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 →

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! I love fall because the weather changes and the bugs leave but I adore Halloween because of its whimsical and fun nature. It’s the one time of year that you can be anything you want and no one can say a thing about it! Plus these DIY Dollar Tree Halloween projects are an absolute blast to make! 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 →

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 →

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 →
