If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen some of my Spring craft videos recently– and if you don’t follow me on facebook, what’re you doing, friend? Follow me! ! I absolutely love taking Dollar Store items (Dollar Tree is the BEST, even though it’s all $1.25 now) and making them a better fit for me and my home, and I think you guys do, too! I know not all of you will be able to find the same pieces at your Dollar Tree that I found at mine, but let the ideas serve as inspiration for whatever you are able to find!
With all of this being said, I thought it might be nice to have a one-stop-shop for easy Spring and Easter crafts you can knock out! While I like to buy cheap, I don’t necessarily want my decorations looking cheap. My best advice while doing this, is pick a color scheme and run with it– it will help to ensure everything matches more seamlessly and allow you to use these decorations for years to come! Now let’s hop to these easy dollar store crafts for spring and Easter…
I found this little wooden bunny butt at my local Dollar Tree, and with only a few supplies, it turned into a yummy, vintage-looking bunny, perfect to go with my other home decor! This is the before, along with supplies used:
And here’s the after! On this craft, I thought it would be a little fun to use a crackle medium, which is what led to the cracked effect you can see below– it’s so fun, and SO easy! You can check out the video where I made this over by clicking here.
bunny garland #1
I found these little wooden bunnies, also at Dollar Tree, and I thought they would be absolutely PERFECT for a garland! You know I love my garlands!
It was easy-peasy, and now I have this precious garland that I could hang over my stove, my fireplace, or even lay on my coffee table! You can see the video where I made this by clicking here.
Okay, now this baby is sooo cute! Once again, I found this at a Dollar Tree, but when I bought it, it was just a plain old wooden piece, no colors or anything! I added a little wood stain to the board itself, then a few fun patterns and colors to the playing pieces! I think this may be one of my favorites, because not only can you actually use it to play tic-tac-toe with your kiddos, you can decorate with it! Throw this on your coffee table and GO my friend!!! You can watch me make it by clicking here.
You may have seen me make something similar to this for other holidays. Personally, I love to throw a little something in a house plant or my garden, to just spruce it up some, give it some new life! These are perfect because I found these at Dollar Tree, and they had little inspirational garden sayings on them, but I switched them to Easter phrases! With a little stain, some napkins, and a heat tool, there was a total transformation!!! I looove these!
wooden easter bunny
This little wooden easter bunny was so plain before I gave it life! Now, it’s the most precious Vintage bunny one can have! This one was a favorite, for sure– I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out! And the beauty, you can make it your own, any way you want!!
easter bunny coasters and name places
These may also be a favorite of mine (it’s so hard to pick)! Once again, similar to everything else in this post, I got these from Dollar Tree, and they came as simple old wooden blocks of bunny! I glued some cork (also from Dollar Tree) onto the back so you can use it as a coaster, and I painted the front with chalkboard paint! This is fun because these can be used as name places OR for kids, you can attach a piece of chalk as shown below, and they can draw on it– how stinking FUN! Click here to watch me make ’em!
bunny garland #2
Well, once again, I love me some garlands– but in this one, I thought it would be fun to mix some old and some new– make this a little more “vintage-feeling.” So, to do that, I cut little triangles of dictionary paper, glued my dollar-store-bought bunnies onto ’em, and put it on some jute string with some pom-poms (also from Dollar Tree). I ended up adding buttons, and wow, I’m glad I did! What a fun way to bring old and new together, and for really cheap, too! Click here to watch me make it!
a fun find from dollar tree
Last but not least, this was not a craft so much, but just a precious find at Dollar Tree! I didn’t have to do anything to this and it matched my style! While that’s pretty rare, it can happen, and when it does, leave well enough alone, my friend! I paired it with this gorgeous pillow from my Mercantile. You can grab a pillow cover, or some of my other Spring Items from the Salvaged Living Mercantile HERE!
The best thing about all of these Dollar Store crafts is that they are your own! My ideas, while they can be copied easily, and I love that, can also be used as an outline or inspiration for you. Everything I do may not match your style, but often-times, the ideas or the techniques are completely transferrable! You can see some other dollar store craft ideas I’ve done here.
Remember, there are no rules in crafting, so do whatever YOU want to do.. who cares!? Make sure and PIN THIS to your spring Pinterest board so you have these ideas for later!
