Dollar Store DIY – Bookends, Vases & Frames



The Dollar Store can be almost as fabulous as Target if you make some time to craft (any Target lovers?!)! Who doesn’t love a fun DIY project that is actually affordable! If you are like me, you have taken on a DIY project or 2 that ends up being way more expensive that just buying it 😉 Well this time, it will be cheaper, I can promise you that! Yay!

I set out to the dollar store to make some fun crafts that can be used as gifts, office decor, classroom decor, shower gifts and more! In this post you will find tutorials on how to make glitter wine glasses, gold bookends, classroom supplies holders and inspirational frames! Simply click the links below to get the tutorials!

I am a firm believer it positive messages to motivate you throughout the day and these cute dollar store inspirational frames are the perfect way to motivate you throughout the day in your home, office or classroom! You can also give these as card or gifts for someone who is having a bad day/week/month/year…..you get the gist! These would make a great gift for anyone like teachers, student teachers, new employees, family members, friends, etc! They were so easy to make and best of all they cost a little over a dollar to make! You can make them in your style and write whatever message you like.

I am sure your significant other or children would love seeing reminders/to-do lists for them on these fun boards! So get your inspiration on and learn how to DIY these cute frames!
