Some Tips on Dollar Store Fall Crafting
Let me say that if you’re going to paint it anyway, you can pretty much always start with a dollar store item, such as plastic pumpkins, seasonal figurines, plates and bowls, etc. Also, you can usually find any kind of embellishment imaginable at the dollar store. They have wreath forms, ribbon, twine, jars, candlesticks, lots of great looking fall flowers and more. Sometimes you need to be a little creative and maybe think outside of the box, but be sure to check the craft, stationary, and seasonal departments. There are often treasures to be found throughout. And one last thing, don’t overlook the premade decorations. These can often be dissembled, and broken down into the perfect pieces for your creations!
Hope you enjoy these budget decorating ideas and happy fall crafting!
