23 Exciting Dollar Store DIY Projects. I’m Doing #12 With My Kids Tonight.
Dollar stores tend to get a bad rap. When you think of the low priced items they carry, we judge it as low quality and let's be honest, 'cheap looking' stuff. It may be time for you to give your neighborhood store another chance. Here are some really cool DIY projects that look like they were bought at a boutique.
#1. Mirror beauty
Purchase approximately 19 compact mirrors. Break them in half, spray paint to desired color. Lay out the mirrors to figure out the design. Hot glue the mirrors together.
#2. Flower bouquet
Place a styrofoam ball on a candlestick. Rip plastic flowers from the stem, stick these to the styrofoam in a row while hot glueing them. Tie a ribbon on the base of the candlestick.
#3. Woodsy technology
If your laptop cover has seen better days, give it a make-over. Contact paper is your answer. Trace along the laptop so you can cut around it the shape. To keep the logo showing, outline the shape and use an x-facto knife to carve it out. Pull off the cover paper and tape it on. Smooth it out to get rid of bubbles.
#4. Terra vase
Purchase a plant, white gravel and vase. Take the plant out of its planter and place in the vase. Add the gravel and enjoy your new terrarium.
#5. Thumbtack art
Using a stencil, cut out your desired word or shape and adorn with thumbtacks.
#6. Summer ombre vases
Use an inexpensive dollar store glass vase and paint horizontal stripes. To achieve the ombre effect start with white acrylic paint at the top. Each stripe should have a darker shade of your favorite color.
