I LOVE the Dollar Tree.....absolutely LOVE Dollar Tree and if y'all follow me on Facebook, you have seen me do live "buy this NOW" broadcasts from there. Not only do they have affordable cleaning supplies, storage and organization, dinnerware and glasses (that are REALLY great quality), party supplies and just about anything else we would need at home, they have FABULOUS crafting items! They recently re-branded and re-merchandised their entire craft line, now called "Crafter's Square" with it's own logo and section in stores. (Side note, they are still rolling the Crafter's Square section of the store out nationwide so be patient if your store still has craft supplies scattered all over.)
I ventured out this week to my local Dollar Tree and found all kinds of "must-haves" for fall. Because they had so many goodies, I felt a live shopping trip to share my excitement would be totally appropriate (who does't want to see me try to talk with a mask on, drive my buggy up and down the isles with 1 hand while trying not to run into anybody or anything and social distance all at the same time? LOL). If you want to see what I am talking about, y'all can watch the live broadcast here and keep reading for a summary of my favorites. Then run.....don't walk.....to your nearest DT or go to www.dollartree.com to order on line. Most items on line do have minimum quantities to purchase but they are very low. I suggest teaming up with loved ones to share the bounty and, if you have a store near you, shipping to the store is free!
So, what should y'all get? In no particular order, I recommend hoarding the following items and be sure to follow me on Facebook here for upcoming videos to turn all of them into beautiful fall decorations.
Wood cut outs
These gems can be used for door hangers, accents for the center of wreaths, shelf sitters....the options are endless!
Wire Wreath forms
In addition to round, wire wreath forms that are perfect for year-round wreath making (I may or may not have dozens hiding in a container in my "craft crap" stash), Dollar Tree has some super fun 3-D forms right now too, I grabbed the ONLY football one (thinking I will turn it over and make some sort of holder out of it) and the last 2 pumpkin ones at my store the day I was there. Don't worry.....all stores will continue to get weekly trucks of fall inventory so if your store doesn't have these yet, just keep checking.
Deco Mesh rolls and mesh tube rope
Both of these items are also part of my hoarded "craft crap" stash and as I use some, it immediately gets replaced. The available colors are seasonal so right now we can get orange, yellow, brown, tan, black and purple. You will need 6-8 rolls of deco mesh to make a 14" wreath so since it's only $1 per roll, purchase an ample amount.
Jute and Wire Ribbon
Oh the things to be made with jute or wire ribbon are endless! Follow me on Facebook to watch how I use both throughout Chez Big Daddy to decorate for fall. But for now, just get ya some, k?
Fall floral picks and stems
I grabbed all of these after my live shopping trip because they were on a turnstile just before the entrance/exit door. I have NO idea how I missed them when I walked it! (palm to forehead) Aren't they all super pretty? I can't wait to show y'all what I have planned for these!
Tiny wooden pallets and trays
I found these in the Crafter's Square section and intend to use them to elevate, display and hold stuff. I will paint and stain them once I figure out where I want to use them.
Hope y'all hit up your local Dollar Tree and grab some of these treasures to make fall decorations with me!
Until next time,
Y'all are so loved!
