Endless Possibilites...For a Dollar!

I was filing away different pictures last night and then while walking around our house, I realized...wow! There is so much you can do for a dollar!

Try not to judge, but so many things in our home have been purchased at the glorious Dollar Tree store.

Wouldn't it be fun to go on a challenge where you had to go to the Dollar Tree or the dollar section at Michael's and make several items for under a certain amount of money! The options would be endless! 

That said, here are just a handful of ways (among the millions of possibilites) where we have incorporated these incredible dollar finds into our every day lives :) 

So fun!!!

 

First up, painted wine glasses from our wedding. These fantastically huge, sturdy glasses...Compliments of The Dollar Tree!

Make a cake stand with just a couple Dollar Tree items!

I am in love with cake stands and love using them for all kinds for parties...

Here is a way to have various types of cake stands, but only pay $2 for each!

Just purchase a Dollar Tree candle stick holder, a pretty Dollar Tree plate and a tube of a quality glass adhesive and you have a brand new cake stand! :) (No one will know)
