I am a thrifty lady.
Whenever I’m in need of something new, one of my first thoughts is always “what’s the lowest price I can find this for?”.
This goes double for craft supplies!
And, since I’m always crafting something, I really need to watch the bottom line.
So in the interest of saving a little money on craft materials, today I’m sharing a list of my favorite Dollar Tree craft supplies.
I know there are other types of dollar stores out there.
In my area, we have a few, too.
But, there is only one where every piece of inventory actually costs a dollar, and that is the Dollar Tree.
It’s one of my favorite places to pop into when I’m buying my craft supplies and just looking for something basic.
Like picture frames, for example ~
There’s always a time when I’m looking for a slightly higher quality frame, but often the frames at the dollar store work just fine for me.
I’ve used them to frame printables and coloring sheets or to fill up our gallery wall in our den.
From time to time, I’ve even come across deeper frames that I can use from quilling paper designs!
The craft aisle at the Dollar Tree is usually filled with supplies for wreath making.
The stores in my area often carry both metal and twig wreath frames.
Now, I’m no professional wreath builder, but I’ve never had any issues with these.
Plus, I like to create new door wreaths pretty much every season, so these fit right into my budget!
While you’re in the craft aisle, check out Dollar Tree’s raffia and other natural materials.
They seemed to be out of the undyed raffia on the day I took these photos, but I’ve used that to wrap around mason jar gifts, or on wooden plaques.
It seems to last forever and at a dollar a bag, the price can’t be beat!
I love the tissue paper packs at Dollar Tree.
They have tons of colors and patterns.
So perfect for paper flowers!
Dollar Tree crepe paper is a must for birthday party decor.
We had a fun superhero party a couple years back for my Moose and it made a great backdrop!
Next time you’re at the Dollar Tree, look over their supply of burlap ribbon.
There were some brighter colors on this day, but I’ve seen all different shades.
It’s worth a peek!
I am not a big fan of glitter, so these little jars are the perfect amount for me!
For quick tasks, I’ve found these packs of paint brushes to be useful.
I don’t have to worry about washing them out as well, and they’re just fine for simple craft paint projects.
I do have a few “nicer” brushes for furniture painting and things like that.
TIP: I have not had any luck with the mini paint rollers from the Dollar Tree! Every one I’ve tried has fallen apart so buy at your own risk!
This is my all-time favorite dollar store craft item: jute twine in a three pack!
I use jute when tying packages or presents for a rustic look, and also in my quilling paper acorn garland!
Now, these are just my favorite Dollar Tree craft supplies.
There are plenty more items there, like faux flowers and plain glassware or plates.
Plus, they’re always adding seasonal inventory!
What do you think about buying craft supplies at the Dollar Tree? Have you had any luck there?
