I am SO excited to actually see a BRAND NEW idea in Pinterest!!! Seems like lately I can only last about five minutes before I am bored with seeing the ‘same-ole-same-old’ stuff yet AGAIN!!
Do you LOVE this fabulously fluffy white wreath as much as I do?!?!? I JUST saw it on Pinterest and HAD to post it here in my DD blog; because YES indeed it was made using stuff from the Dollar Store!
I don’t even think that “I” could have ever come up with this idea!!! Pop on over to the Craftberry Bush Blog for the complete step by step tutorial.
Gotta love a kindred spirit who also uses Dollar Tree components for their creations! Here is what Lindsay from her Southern Lovely blog created and shared:
Hop on over to her blog HERE to see how she created the BIG base for this large cloche (looks like the dome from a cake stand to give you a size reference) using mostly stuff she found at DT!
**I must add that I do NOT endorse her use of hot glue for such a project. I always use e6000 adhesive for a more secure and permanent hold.
The sweet fellow blogger who sent me the DT birds that I initially couldn’t find locally, just sent me the link to HER first project with them.
CLICK HERE to go to her blog for the complete tutorial.
Anyone else have any DT or bird projects they want to share???
Another GREAT dollar store crafter for you to check out!
I JUST stumbled upon this blog and haven’t looked at the whole thing yet. But from what I’ve seen so far, this could well be my ‘twin separated at birth’! Lots of ‘old book pages’ ideas AND Dollar Store supply crafts.

Soooooooooooo pretty!!! Would make a great holiday wreath; and yet is simple enough to stay out year round in a shabby cottage decor space.
Check out “The Virginia House” for the complete (and surprisingly SIMPLE!) tutorial.
It seems that I can never leave ‘well enough alone’, and when I see projects like this, that are PERFECT as they are, my brain starts thinking of variations on the theme. Here are my thoughts and things I might try when I make one of these:
1) The wreath form; I’m thinking the hard green floral foam wreaths might be easier to work with than the willow wreath. (although they might be smaller)
2) GLITTER!!! Everything is better with glitter. Lightly brush glue on the very tips of the ruffles and sprinkle on some glitter.
3) For a more primitive and rustic look, spritz it with some grubby stain.
4) OR use the tan coffee filters to begin with!
5) Lightly wrap around a ‘sheet music paper garland’ ; or hang a little banner across the front.

I’ve only just glanced at it quickly thus far, but already see several ‘dollar store’ craft ideas that I plan on trying. Check it out if you’re in need of more inspiration!

And check out 320* Sycamore here
for a great hurricane lamp idea. I’ve dome some similar to this using SHELLS and sand for a beach theme. What else could you add???
* PLEASE NOTE: I do NOT recommend using hot glue;rathert e6000, like Tidy Mom suggests.
