My Dollar Tree Easter

>> Monday, March 21, 2011

Anyone that knows me or anyone that follows my family blog knows that I am in LOVE with the dollar store...Dollar Tree to be more specific. I probably visit once a week, but depending on what I have going on it could me more like two or three.

After the kids are in bed and my hubby is is not uncommon for me to sneak off to "Pick up a few things".

A while back I started Dollar Tree Tuesday on my family blog to show everyone my awesome finds, it just never disappoints. It just so happens that this week my finds found their way into my craftroom in the way of Easter decorations.

These are some of the things I picked up...(not pictured: wreath, colored floral wire and decorative white rocks)

And these are a few of the things I put together...

I just loved these glitter covered, Styrofoam eggs. I knew I could find something to do with them, I ended up finding two things. A few weeks ago I picked up the colored floral wire I used on the wreath. It took a little time, but I was happy with how my letters turned out.

I used that tissue paper for my new favorite craft...TISSUE POMS!!! I just forgot the picture (I will try to get one tomorrow). I have made them in all sizes and colors and after LOTS of trial and error...I have finally figured out the best way to make them. I am using them for Easter decorations, but they are so cute I will be doubling them as decorations for Taylor's Candyland themed birthday.

Hair Bow Holder

So I have these things...

I guess you would call them wire storage cubes, well that is what I would call them anyway.

Well, these cubes which are made up of squares have been used in almost every room of my house. It has been so long since I bought them I really couldn't tell you what they cost...something like $20 for a whole box. Anyway, I have used them for their actual purpose which would be organization, but I have been finding new uses for them.

First use...

To hang all of my jewelry.

But most recently I converted one square into a bow holder.

Each square 13.5" x 13.5" made up of smaller 1.5" squares, so I bought some cute ribbon and weaved it through. Using my favorite tool...MY GLUE GUN...I glued the ribbon on the reverse side tightly.

And here is the result...

What do you think??

I decided one wasn't enough, so I am making two more.
