This craft may just be one of the easiest and most budget friendly crafts I have done. These are my favorite crafts to do! All of the items I used came from the Dollar Tree.

The first thing I did was put my piece of floral foam into my galvanized pail.

Now it’s time to start adding in the succulent picks. I like to start with by tallest picks first and then add the rest in until I have covered all of the bare spots.

Can you believe you can create such cuteness will only Dollar Tree items? Pretty awesome, right? I hope this inspires you to create some of your own cuteness on a budget!

Dollar Tree Reverse Canvas Heart Decor

You will need:

-5×7 canvas, I got mine at Dollar Tree

-Wood heart-Dollar Tree

-Minwax “Walnut” gel stain-Click here for my affiliate link to purchase

-Ribbon if bow is desired

The first thing I did was take my canvas off of the frame. You can do this by using a utility knife or staple remover.

Once I had the canvas removed, I stained the frame and my heart piece.

Next, I cut along the fold lines of the canvas so it would fit back on the frame and then glued my canvas back to the frame. I actually used the back side of the canvas(the oatmeal colored side) for my project as this side looks a little more rustic then just the plain white.

Next, I glued on my heart. The heart would also be cute with a white washed finish but for now I decided to just leave mine as is!

And of course to finish it off, I added a super quick and easy bow! It doesn’t get much easier than this, does it?

Dollar Tree Truck Makeover

Supplies:

*Red truck from Dollar Tree

*Christmas pick

*Paint-I used Waverly chalk paint “Celery”, Apple Barrel “Tuscan Red”, “Black”, and “Pewter Gray”.

*Embellishments of your choice

Now, don’t get me wrong, this little truck is cute as it is but just wait until you see it after I get done with it!

To start off I removed the tree from the back of the truck. Next, I painted the body of the truck with my “tuscan red” paint.

Next, I painted my tires with my black paint and the fenders with my “celery” paint.

Once those were dry, I took my gray and added some highlight color to the tires. I also, took my “celery” color and added some highlights to the body of the truck.

Next, I added a little mini ornament embellishment on the door of the truck. I found these in the Christmas section at Wal-mart.

To finish off the truck, I used a Christmas pick to replace the tree that was in the back of the truck. I found my pick at Wal-mart. I simply cut down the stem and hot glued the top of the pick to the back of the truck.

Well, what do you think? Quite the transformation, right? I just love how it turned out!

Dollar Tree Jack-O-Lantern Hanger

Supplies:

*Jack-o-lantern blank(Dollar Tree)

*Paint

*Scrapbook Paper

*Mod Podge

*Paint Brush

*Ribbon/raffia(if you want a bow)

I started off by mixing my two paint colors together. I used Anita’s “Pumpkin Orange”, and Apple Barrel “Tuscan Red” for my paint colors. Next, I painted my pumpkin, leaving the eyes, nose, and mouth unpainted as we will be covering them with scrapbook paper next.

Next I took my scrapbook paper and traced over the eyes, nose, and mouth and then cut the pieces out.

Once I had that done, I took my mod podge and adhered the scrapbook paper to my pumpkin. If you pieces of paper don’t fit the shapes on the pumpkin just right, don’t worry. You can always go back and use a sanding block to sand off the excess paper on the edges.

Next, I used a piece of jute twine to add a hanger to my pumpkin.

To finish off this cutie I simply made a cute little bow by criss-crossing a few different patterns of ribbon and adding some raffia to finish it off.
