Because according to my stats, my Dollar Tree crafts are the most popular on my blog.
Which means you all love all things cheap and easy.
Which must mean I am cheap and easy.
Don't let this get out, ok? Wouldn't wanna ruin my reputation...
So, because I am a people pleaser, I thought I would put them on the blog in one easy to access place!
See, I am here for you.
Its the least I could do.
1- Hurricane Vases
This first DT project was one of my earlier blog posts and was a huge hit when bestie Melissa and I were trying to start our own biz. These sold out immediately and we wondered why we didn't make more as they cost us less than five bucks to make.
These were inspired by Williams Sonoma via Melissa over at 320 Sycamore. Here is the link to the tutorial:
All it takes is a glass vase, a glass candle holder and a prayer candle. These are all available for a buck each at DT as well as any kind of decor you want to add to it. I added leaves I found at my DT for this picture but I have used bubble gum for kids parties, diff color beads for diff holidays. The possibilities are endless!
2- Fuzzy Rocks In A Pot
This might have been a spring inspired craft, but this could be used in your home year round. It is still in my home, in our master bath, as I write this in August. I have seen these types of accent pieces in Pottery Barn for years and they cost A LOT more than how much I paid for them.
Here is the link to the original project:
All you will need are the cute little terra cotta pots, and green fuzzy rocks.
Less than 1 buck per accent since the pots and the rocks come in multi packs.
3- Glass Pedestals
This next one is my most popular post of all time.
And it took only 30 minutes (which included drying time) and under 3 bucks to make.
You can find the tutorial (if you want to even call it that, its so easy) here:
4- Fall Sign
The only thing from DT in this project was the frame.
But the other items are free and something you have laying around your house right now.
DT frame + paint swatches + scrabble tiles = a really cool craft!
5- Christmas Table Scape
I did it.
And you can too.
I loved this table scape.
It was natural looking and it was cheap.
Without looking cheap.
6- Mercury Glass Vases
This stuff is HUGE right now.
And the price is HUGE too.
So anytime something is trendy AND pricey, ya know I am gon' try and DT or Goodwill it up.
Here was my take on the trend:
7- Valentines Craft
Or anytime of year craft, you could tailor this to your fave holiday.
I think I might make one for fall/Halloween too.
I love this one the most because it started as another DT project and turned into another.
So two projects for the price of one.
So really, it was free.
8- Birthday Gift Basket
When I want to get a birthday gift for my kids classmates, the first place I head to is DT.
Here is what I created for one of my daughter's makeup and hair obsessed friends this spring
I would have loved something like this when I was a tween!
Too bad DT didn't exist when I was younger.....
So there ya have it!
A few DT inspired ideas to give you a lift.
I should say, I am not at all being endorsed by Dollar Tree.
I would like to also mention that recently Dollar Tree's numbers are the highest in company history.
I like to think I had a big hand in that.
You are welcome Dollar Tree big wigs.
