I have never met one person in my life who hasn’t shown at least some interest in improving their home and wanting to add a little decoration to it. Well, I guess that isn’t entirely true. If my husband was still a Bachelor he would be completely content with just having a bed and his computer. He is a very simple dude. But, for the most part people are interested in some sort of home decor for their home.
Home decor is very important in my life, but the most important aspect of home decor is budget. Yes, having a larger budget would mean more high level decor and you would be able to have a variety of type of decor if you didn’t have a budget. However, I only know one couple my age who could spend whatever they wanted on their home decor needs. I am not them. I have to buy home decor on a budget or I don’t get home decor at all. One great place to shop and create simple DIY home decor is from the dollar store.
You might be wondering, what on earth can I make from the dollar store?! Good QUESTION that is where I come in!
Here are ome of my favorite Home Decor pieces you can make from dollar tree items.
Dollar Tree Glass Jar:
This lovely idea is from the Passionate Penny Pincher. All she does is grab a glass jar from the the dollar tree, some decorative yarn and some sticks. BAM you got yourself a beautiful decor piece. You can place on of these on each side of your mantle.
I wish the picture was a little more appealing, but I LOVE these plates. This project is from Ashlibrooke. All she did was get white plates from the dollar store and then she took the wall decor words and placed what she wanted on the plates. This has endless possibilities.
I can’t get over how cute this little decor piece is. And look how simple. For those who don’t know, they sell a whole bunch of stirofoam shapes at the dollar tree and you might have wondered at some point, “what the heck do people do with those?” Well, now you know. Grab one of the stirofoam balls and gloos a whole bunch of flowers around it and then place the ball on a candel stick. How stinken cute! I haven’t attempted this one, but this is going to be on my list of projects!
Who thinks of these things?! I don’t know how people even have the creativity to come up with a project like this. But here is is. You can grab one of those styrofoam balls, fake moss, a flower pot, molding clay, long stick and greanery. So you will first want to stick in your greanery into the ball. Then you will want to stab the stick into the ball and then the ball into the flower pot (where you will probably have to have a block of styrofoam to stablize). Then take the molding clay and wrap around to hide the stick. Fill in the pot with some fake moss and there you go. Like I said, who thinks of these things! I wish I had that type of mind.
I had no idea how many things you could make with the simple frames from the dollar store. It is awesome! So you can create a little house like shown above. You can also create a box and place things inside. You can create a succulent planter or you can place candles in there. So many ideas. Let your creativity sore.
Decorate with Frame
You can do so many things with frame. This project is incredibly easy and you can place them on the wall. Grab a glass jar and hand it in the middle and then place a decorative piece in the jar. So simple and elegant.
What I really like about this project is that you can choose whatever jar you want for your decorative vase. You can choose something fancy or something a little bit more relaxed depending on where you would like to place these decorative pieces.
This is so cute. Everything in here she got from the Dollar Tree and I am 100% going to do something like this in my guest bathroom. All she did was get a tin tray and a few jars. She put some shells in two of the jars and a flower and rocks in another. And look how elegant it looks!
I don’t know about you, but I am so excited to start decorating my home with these awesome ideas!
