Dollar Tree DIY . Today I have a collab for you. This is 5 Dollar Tree DIYs and I’ve partnered with “Backwoods Barbie” and she did her own Dollar Tree DIY video. So be sure that stop by and check her video out leave her a comment, let her know that I sent you over. And before I get started I do want to remind you guys to please give me a thumbs up if you enjoy this video or if you just enjoy Dollar Tree DIYs, DIYs in general and if you’re new to my channel I would love to have to stick around and hit the subscribe button down below and let’s go ahead and jump into this. So the first thing that I made was this succulent garden planter. These are all fake from the Dollar Tree “Oh are you interested Gizmo?” Gizmo’s interested.
So basically what I did was I just started off with some succulents from the Dollar Tree, some foam rounds, and a plastic dish. I also used some white rocks to fill it. So, all I did is pulled out the succulents from their little pots, got as much of the glue/gunk off as I could, and took off the tags. Then I put both of the foam discs into my planter and then poked in my succulents and just sort of arranged them the best way that I could. And then filled in the container with those white floral rocks. I love how it looks- it looks so realistic you can’t even tell that it’s fake. I like that I can put it somewhere that I don’t have to worry about it. I actually have it in my kitchen right now and I’m kind of liking it there, but I could also put inside the bathroom or something where it’s not going to get a lot of sunlight and it’s not going to matter. Up next is this little framed picture. I just started with a frame that I got at the Dollar Tree and I took it apart and I spray painted the frame white.

I put this little picture in that says “Be a pineapple. Stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside” and originally I thought about just making my own printable and was kind of looking for stuff and I just decided to get on Etsy and I think I paid like three dollars and some change for this I don’t think it was more than $5. I downloaded it and printed it myself. But you can put whatever you want in here. You don’t have to go buy a print from Etsy. You can use a family photo, or something like that, but I do just really like how it looks with the white it changed it a lot from the silver and it you can actually find a lot of images like this as well on Google that are free to use for personal use, but I just happened to really like this one and decided to support their business and pay for it. So next are some candle holders. Excuse the voice over here, but I realized that I did a really crap job explaining this the first time. I used little candle holders and I made a shorter candle holder and then a taller one. Using clear E6000 to make the taller candle holder you want to glue two small candle holders top to top and just put the E6000 all the way around then just set it aside. For the smaller one you do the same thing on the top of the candle holder pt a good generous amount of E6000 and put it on an upside down candle plate. Just kind of mash it there. You want to leave these alone- let them sit overnight.
After I’ve let the taller one dry I’m going to just put more E6000 around the top of it and then repeat the same process where I’m going to put it upside down onto one of those little candle plates. And then again let this one dry overnight. It needs a full 24 hours you put a candle on top. This is my next DIY and we are going to kick this back to like elementary school. All I did was I took some hardback books and I picked some up at the Dollar Tree you can use books that you already have, or grab some at Goodwill or whatever. You don’t have to use- you don’t have to go buy books just to do this. I just grabbed some wrapping paper and wrapped them up the same way that you used to in school to keep your books safe and covered. I love how these look. These would look really good in any color and if you wanted to you could write on the spine of the wrapping paper or you can change this out seasonally. I just have the two on the mantel right now, and I think I’m going to add more, because I really like it looks. And the last DIY is so ridiculously simple. I took this milk glass- not milk glass- milk vase- milk jug style vase (there we go) from the Dollar Tree, some of those leftover floral rocks from the succulent garden and these little purple flowers. I’l show you in the video- I just trimmed off the funny parts and all I did- this is so easy, I kind of feel guilty showing this as a DIY- but literally just poured the rocks in the jar and cut apart the flowers and stuck the flowers in. But I like this because it looks a lot more expensive than it is. “Whatd o you think Gizmo?” I think it looks like something that you would pick up at Ross or TJ Maxx or even like at Ikea something that you would pay a lot more than the $3 that it cost to make this- and considering that I already had the rocks leftover, “You’re gonna fall off” considering that I already had the rocks leftover this is like a $2 craft. I absolutely love this. I think it looks so good and it just looks nice and spring-y and bright and I really really like it. That it is for my 5 Dollar Tree DIYs.
