Dollar Tree Craft- Cute Glass Holders Of Schtuff

I was trying to think of a cool name for my latest Dollar Tree craptastic craft and do ya think I could think of anything better than Glass Holders Of Schtuff?

Nope.

Knick knack holders?
No....

Glass candle-like thingamajiggies?
Nah.....

Awesomesauce 2 buck glass contraption?
Uhh- uhh...


So anyhoo, you decide what to call them.
I call it cheap and cool. And thats all that matters.....:)

I started out with these fine one dolla each items at my local Dollar Tree:


2 candleholders in this dark color




2 glass jars in this half size
they are in the same aisle as all the other crap I mean craft things ...:)




2 packages of gourds and pumpkins




add a little of this to the rims of the candleholders and press the glass on top and then let dry.
I usually put a book on top of it to let it set.

Then you will have this:





yes, I realized after I created this that I forgot to take the tag off the bottom of the glass.
We all have moments and this is one of them.




Cost breakdown:
1- 2 candleholders from Dollar Tree- 2.00
2- 2 glass jars from DT- 2.00
3- 2 bags o' fall fun from DT- 2.00

Total cost? $6.00 for a coolfunfalldecorholder.
There that is a much better descriptive.

  15. I have been doing a similar project on a Halloween Mantle. I am glad to see that there are those who glue before they think besides me! You have given me the solution to a goblet project that has been troubling me. Love your site.

  18. Marie- they are hard to find! Mine were buried on the bottom shelf near the flower foam and the faux grapevine wreaths but my DT is very small so yours might be in a totally diff place.

    Good luck!

  24. I like what you did with the dollar items. You've reminded me that I picked up a black candlestick at Goodwill a few weeks back with Halloween in mind. Then I have an old pyrex small bowl - there's a name for it, but it escapes me. Maybe I can add some stuff from the yard. Thanks for the idea.
