How To Use DOLLAR TREE Rings

Talk about a totally high-end looking item at Dollar Tree! On a recent trip to Dollar Tree I came across these beautiful brass rings. They come three in a pack, in three sizes. The color is already stunning, but, of course, you can spray paint if you’d like.

They are made from a great, durable metal material, but easy to cut using wire cutters. I snatched 2 sets and brought them home.

On a recent video I posted on my YouTube channel, I used these brass rings to make absolutely stunning Christmas decorations.

I made a super glam, high-end looking Christmas wreath with bulbs and greenery.

I also created an adorable snowman by using a small and a medium ring. I also created a unique wreath using drop cloth, that would look fantastic in a front door. And I also made a, lighted wreath by adding a battery operated lighted star to it.

BRILLIANT Ways To Use DOLLAR TREE Iron-On Vinyl

Ok, so hear me out…….$1.25 roll of bright, glittered, iron-on heat vinyl transfer, heat pressed on Drop Cloth, flannel, ceramic and glass.

Wait…..you don’t believe me?! Think again.

That’s exactly what I did on a recent video. On a recent trip to Dollar Tree I found the most beautiful, vibrant, glittered, heat transfer iron-on vinyl. I had never used it before, so I was intrigued. I purchased red, gold and silver ones and took them home to create the most beautiful and unique Christmas decor.

The first three crafts, were a home run; well, at lease in my opinion 😂. The fourth one, however, was a hot mess. I did leave it in the video so that you learn from my mistakes.

I created a beautiful banner style piece that was just darling! I used flannel fabric and the golden heat transfer iron-on vinyl. I also made the most adorable Christmas napkins using drop cloth and a combination of all three iron-on vinyl. I even took a plate from Dollar Tree and ironed on a golden tree to it! It was perfection. I couldn’t believe it actually worked! And finally, I tried my best to apply the red heat transfer iron-on vinyl on three small vases, but that was a total fail. You’ll have to let me know what you think.

Have fun creating and have a blessed day!

CHRISTMAS Handmade Decor To Flip About

If you’ve been following me here on my blog or on my YouTube Channel you know that I LOVE a good thrift store flip. But when it’s a Christmas theme one….it’s my absolute favorite!

Through the years of thrifting and flipping I’ve learned quite a bit about what to do, what not to do, and I want to share some tips on what to keep in mind when flipping thrift store finds.

  1. First, don’t be afraid to go large. If you see a piece at the thrift store that is large and has great bones, get it! You’d be surprised how easy and inexpensive it is to give a large, old piece a new, fresh look.
  2. Keep it simple. Don’t over think how you can flip an item. Sometimes all it takes is a can of paint, a couple of scrap wood boards and some decorative items, to give a wow factor to an old piece.
  3. Don’t over do it and know when to stop. This goes for any handmade decor. I am a huge fan of simplicity and have learned to know when to stop adding decorative items to get the perfect look.
  4. When in doubt, paint it white. I love white. I could paint everything white and be totally fine with it. 😂 Ok…maybe not everything, but seriously, when in doubt paint it white and go from there. It will instantly feel fresh, new and like a white canvas… literally.

Ok, so these are some things to keep in mind and now you can watch some of my recent flips and get tons of inspiration.

The thrift store flips you’ll see on this video are some of my favorite…and safely to say some of my best flips. They are large, durable and quality-made.
