Dollar Tree Crafts to Make on the Cheap

If you love the dollar store, you’re going to love these Dollar Tree crafts you can make with Mod Podge and other simple supplies.

Dollar Store Crafts

Did you know that Dollar Tree sells Mod Podge? They do . . . with a ton of other craft supplies like glitter, wood surfaces, glass containers, paint, wreath forms, beads, canvas, washi tape . . . you can see everything they offer here. It’s more extensive than you thought, right? I feel that way every time I go to the dollar store. Where did all these craft supplies come from?

I absolutely love it.

You might think this is sponsored; it’s not. I’m just a huge fan. They recently expanded their Crafter’s Square section and I knew it was time to share some of the crafts we’ve done here on the blog using supplies from Dollar Tree. There are a LOT.

Dollar Tree Craft Supplies

But before we get into that, I wanted to share the supplies that I always get from Dollar Tree. Because I still obviously shop at Michaels, Jo-Ann’s, and other craft stores too. I spread the love, so to speak! I don’t buy everything from the dollar store, and I’m picky about the quality of things that I purchase and use for crafts.

Keep in mind that there are minimums you can purchase online versus if you go into the store. If you have to make a long trip to get to a Dollar Tree, I’d call to see what your store has on hand. There’s nothing more disappointing than making a trip simply to find out what you want is gone!
