If you’re looking for reasonable sweet gifts, you will love this post. These candle gifts are cute for stocking stuffers, add it to a basket your making or just a simple “just because” gift. I really do love these three scents at Dollar Tree: Pumpkin Pie, Sugar cookie, and Apple Pie. Because I plan on giving these out as gifts this year for some of my friends, teachers and employees – I had to make cute printables, to dress up my candle gift. Download Here
I know, I know- It’s August and I am posting Halloween, but If you’re a crafter you know every store is full of Halloween crafts and décor already. I have come across some things that I knew I could make cheaper and have found some things that are a great deal. SO I needed to share. I was at Jo-Ann Fabrics the other day admiring all their Halloween décor and came across these sugar skull candles. They were selling them for $6.99 Very cute, but I remember coming across these candles at Dollar Tree.
Well in the next aisle at Jo-Ann’s I found these Sugar skull embellishment’s.
For two they were $4.99 with 25% off, making it $3.75. I turned my craft into two projects. I came across these goodies as well and couldn’t believe the price. They were not on sale but even if they were 50% off the price is still crazy. I drink wine so I have wine bottles already able to use, but even if you don’t drink wine find a friend that does. You can also ask restaurants that serve wine if you can recycle their bottles for them. Buy a can of spray paint. I always buy mine at Wal-Mart for less than $4.00. I wanted to spray my bottle with a gloss black instead of chalkboard. The best tip for spray painting is to give yourself enough space to avoid paint runs.
Once dried I added one of my sugar skulls.
For my candle, all I did was add the other sticker.
I also found this pumpkin at Dollar tree that I spray painted.
I made myself a cute little arrangement for just a few dollars, with plenty of spray paint left for many more projects.
Who Knew some marbles and sharpie markers would entertain my children for hours. While my children and I were making our DIY Sharpie coasters craft we decided to color some of our marbles we purchased at Dollar tree. They have a few different colors, but we bought clear and blue. My daughter and I decided to see what bugs we could make with our marbles. Love our little bumble bee
ButterflyKind of looks like a dragonfly.
Despite how simple this project is my 7-year-old, 4-year-old and I were entertained for over two hours.
