If you have never shopped the Dollar Store, you are missing out on some great deals. Before you start your next DIY project, check the Dollar Store first. Here are 7 items that you will most likely find at the Dollar Store as shown on the Passionate Penny Pincher.
Floral Picks & Berries
If you are making a wreath or a centerpiece. You must check here first before shopping at other stores.
Mason Jars, Glass Vases & Glass Jars
One of the things I use most often in changing up the mantle or table decor are small glass jars. In fact, every time I walk in the Dollar Tree I make a beeline for the glassware aisle (I’m like a kid in a candy store when I’m there!)
Pots & Tins
Use pots and tins to organize a desk area and cut down clutter. Do you have a silhouette cutter? (I love mine!) Customize a pot or tin with a monogram ~ chalkboard stickers work great too. These candy-colored guys will add a little splash of color to a shelf display, or make them match your decor with spray paint.
Inexpensive plastic frames are easy to transform with spray paint to coordinate with your wall collage – and no one will be able to tell those frames are just a buck.
They’re great for making signs and kids craft projects, and you can’t beat snatching them up for a buck.
Craft Foam Wreaths & Balls
Watch for craft foam and even small grapevine wreaths too. (In a pinch – a pool noodle can work as a wreath base as well!)
Ribbons, Twine, Glue Guns & Washi Tape
Craft stores can often charge far more than $1 for twine and tape. Stock up on these items when you see them at the Dollar Store.
