Today I am sharing diy Dollar tree craft.
Think outside the box ideas.
Shannon From Fox Hollow cottage totally inspired me with her Pumpkin Tray from the dollar tree. I had to run out and see if we had some at ours.
If nothing else you will certainly get a chuckle out of mine:)
FROM the Dollar tree:
Using light bulbs, napkins and all their seasonal embellishments the Dollar tree has to offer.
Having the dollar tree just two minutes from our home could be trouble sometimes.
Even if I just have to hop in there for a gift bag and card, I still wind up picking up a cart full.
I just tell myself, it’s only a dollar!
It was while walking around, filling up my cart when the light bulb went off.
In the cart went a few silver trays, light bulbs, steel wool pads and some Halloween napkins.
I mod podged the light bulb first.
Then I lightly painted the tray with black craft paint.
took the steel wool and rubbed the tray lightly.
From there I took pieces of the steel wool and wrapped it around the light bulb.
Then I lightly splattered some red craft paint to appear like blood drippings.
This worked great because there is hardly any paint left in the bottle…so I splattered perfectly.
I hot glued my light bulb to the tray, then I took the glue gun and started lightly making stands of glue all around it to appear web like.
Skeleton hand from the dollar tree, hot glued next to the light bulb.
Hot glued the bone across the tray.
Turned out spooktacular for a light bulb moment!
Please always keep in mind, when I do these crafts, I totally think of my boys.
Now If I had girls…everything would come up smelling like roses!
But I don’t so you have to put up with this silly, spooky stuff sometimes.
This year I sure have been keeping the dollar tree in business!
My Halloween pumpkins, Halloween Mantel, tablescapes and more!
Thank you Dollar tree for allowing me to have so much fun:) On the cheap!~
and my one of my favorites is my Purple Halloween wreath, embellished with Dollar tree spiders, skeletons and the web!
