Ice Cream Float Arrangements

Who doesn’t love ice cream? I certainly do! I love it so much that I have an ice cream cone tattoo. The other day while perusing the aisles at Dollar Tree I spotted these super fun ice cream cone cups and instantly grabbed them to craft up these fabulous arrangements. Aren’t they just delicious? How cute would these be at an ice cream social?!? The perfect summer centerpiece. I grabbed 3 plastic ice cream cone […]

Cocktail Umbrella Wreath

In honor of the unofficial start of summer, I crafted up this cocktail umbrella wreath. It’s so simple to put together and all the supplies can be found at Dollar Tree. Ok, so, maybe I  did a little more than make a wreath. I mean, if you give a mouse a cookie…! I just couldn’t help myself. The wreath pairs so well with my Sunshine Banner and Beach Ball Lanterns. Throw in a couple decorative items and a […]

Watercolor Paper Lanterns

My friends over at Plaid kindly sent me a couple watercolor paints a few weeks back. I thought it would be cool to decorate a paper lantern light strand with them. I haven’t used watercolor paints since I was a kid. While painting I began to have wonderful memories of watercolor painting with my grandma. I’m pretty certain she introduced me to watercolors. This project was a lot of fun! I used FolkArt Watercolor acrylic paints […]

Rope Rug

I was in need of a small rug. So, in true DIY’er fashion, I made one. I love the bold look of it. It’s almost hypnotizing! You don’t need much to make this rug. Just lots of hot glue, 100 feet of polypropylene rope, a piece of felt (for the underside of the rug), scissors, a marker and spray adhesive. For the ten thousandth time, please forgive my dirty glue gun! Years of use! To […]

Tomato Cage Foot Stool

I was looking at my Tomato Cage Marbleized Side Table the other day and trying to think of other ways to use tomato cages unconventionally. Before creating my side table, I created a Plant Stand using a tomato cage. It dawned on me that if I cut the cage down to the second rung, it would be the perfect height for a foot stool! I’ve always wanted to make a foot stool. I’m beyond pleased with how it turned […]

Dollar Store Faux Wood Vase/Centerpiece

If you’re in need of a centerpiece for an upcoming dinner party or event thats stylish, but doesn’t break the bank, this arrangement may be just the thing. It’s very easy to put together. Everything for this centerpiece can be purchased at Dollar Tree except the fresh flowers. In store, you’ll want to pick up a few glass cylinders (varying heights), faux wood contact paper, a bag of moss and various rocks. I grabbed the […]

Sunshine Banner

The other day while I was perusing the aisles at Dollar Tree, I came across these cheery sunshine cutouts in the teacher section. Unless you are a teacher, you most likely overlook this section, but it is filled with super cute cutouts that are perfect for banner making. Perhaps, I was drawn to them since there’s been a serious lack of sunshine here lately. I just love their big smiles. I swooped them up along […]

Dollar Store Garden Party Placeholders

I’m hoping that if I continue making spring crafts, spring will actually arrive! Here, its currently snowing outside, but inside I’m having one hell of a spring garden party. I made these adorable flower pot placeholders using supplies I picked up at Dollar Tree. They’re perfect if you are hosting a spring gathering. Your guests can take them home and later plant the attached seeds! Ok, heres what I picked up at Dollar Tree in […]

Dollar Store Butterfly Wreath

Although Mother Nature isn’t, I am so ready for warmer temperatures. Its been cold and gray here lately. To brighten my mood and perhaps give a nudge to spring, I decided to create this lovely butterfly wreath. I picked up the majority of my supplies at Dollar Tree. I grabbed a 10in. foam wreath, 12 packs of butterfly decorations and a bag of bright green moss while in store. The butterflies come in a variety […]
