31 Amazing ideas for Dollar Tree fall crafts, with easy tutorials on how to make your own decor for your home this season.
I’ve gathered 31 quick and easy do it yourself fall crafts tutorials to help you do it up in style and on a budget so you can create a warm fall ambience for your home.
I’ve also decided to add a few tutorials that don’t have materials that come from the Dollar Store because they are still very thrifty and just too good to leave out!
Did you know you can actually decorate your house for fall cheap? Yes, you can. Dollar stores can make this very possible. What’s so great about getting decor from the Dollar Tree?
Aside from everything truly being $1 dollar, is that generally the decor is fairly generic looking-which is a good thing because it’s like their decorative items are made to be jazzed up.
And with everything being so inexpensive you can put your eyes on just about any ordinary everyday item and imagine alternate uses for items.
For instance, you can take neon glow stick necklaces, let the glow part fade away, twist them together like they were a bittersweet vine, then spray paint them, and add some acorns.
Suddenly you have a fall wreath! Now, that tutorial doesn’t actually exist -yet ;), but it’s just another idea for making decor on the cheap!
What’s the difference between the Dollar Tree and Dollar General? Well, everything at Dollar Tree is- like I mentioned above, just $1 dollar.
Dollar General has many of the same things as Dollar Tree, but not everything in the store is $1 dollar.
Plus, in my experience, Dollar General tends to have more typical grocery store times than a Dollar Tree.
You’ll have great finds at both, but if you have to pick one over the other for anything decor or arts and crafts, I recommend Dollar Tree.
If you are looking to come with your own ideas on what to make, then use the tutorials below for inspiration.
And what should you look for when shopping at the dollar stores?
Be on the look out for artificial flowers, plastic pumpkins and gourds, foam and wood wreath bodies and fabric leaves.
They also carry glass vases and bowls. Then also, most locations carry supplies like glue, glitter, scissors, wore, ribbon and string.
You can pretty much get everything you need to make your own fall decorations and these 31 tutorials will show you how!
