    For our #SundayFunday theme I am once again posting a fun craft.

    Creative Dollar Tree Crafts for Low Budgets

    Reverse Canvas Sign

    Making the reverse canvas is easy. All you need to do is get a canvas and flip the white rear side to the front.

    Remove the staples from the back of our canvas using a flat-headed screwdriver. Buy the frame for your canvas and paint it the way you want or simply buy a frame in a color that you like.

    Then, simply stick the image or text to the canvas and press with an iron. Cut out some leaves from heavy black cardstock and glue them around the text or image.

    Use the staple gun to attach the frame to the canvas. Make sure that the size of the staples is not too big.

    A new #SundayFunday craft.

    Creative Dollar Tree Crafts for Low Budgets

    Succulents

    Choose a perfect old looking flower tin from the nearest dollar store and paint it with spray paint. Then, use medium-grit sandpaper to get the old shabby vintage look.

    Afterward, add a floral foam inside the tin and start arranging the succulents. Fill in all the gaps with some moss and add raffia to make it look even cuter.

    It’s #SundayFunday again and my newest craft…….

    Creative Dollar Tree Crafts for Low Budgets

    Trendy Decorative Lantern

    Did you know that you can have those expensive-looking lanterns in your home and make them really quickly?

    Go get some flat sided photo frames, some pliers and a hot glue gun. If you could find a shower curtain ring or any similar item, that would be perfect for this little DIY!

    Take the frames apart and glue them together to form a cube-like shape. Make sure to leave the glass inside the frame.

    Break apart more frames and use the sides to create the top of the lantern. Lastly, add the little curtain ring at the top of your lantern to make it look super realistic!

    Today’s #SundayFunday craft is…………..

    Creative Dollar Tree Crafts for Low Budgets

    Farm Fruit Basket Wagon Planter

    Find an old antique looking flower tin, some black and white chalk paint, and recycled jar lids.

    Paint the skewers black and use white paint to cover the flower tin and four jar lids. Then, using a thin painting brush, draw lines to make the jar lids look like wagon wheels.

    Glue the lids around the tin and glue the skewers to one side of the basket to look like a wagon handle. Once everything is dry, put some fruit and flowers in it to decorate your farm fruit basket wagon planter.

    36. Plate Décor

    Dollar stores have a ton of plates in their catalog. The next time you’re there, pick up one of those plates; you’ll need one to make this gorgeous sign plate!

    It’s fresh and zesty, with bright pops of yellow from the lemon and dark minty green from the leaves. You can almost smell those lemons just from looking at the picture!

    You can also place a candlestick in one corner to offset the tableau. For one final rustic touch, why not lay a bit of corded rope around the potted lemons?

    Here is a link to other ways to decorate plates.
