20 Insanely Easy DOLLAR TREE High End Fall DIYs 2021Mar 11, 2022
hey guys thanks so much for tuning in so for todays video i have 20 bucks DIY from
falla lot of these you have seen before and a lot of these have been revamped and retouched so i really hope you enjoy todays video is sponsored by cricket thank you so much for supporting my channel and before you go in make sure you hit that subscribe button because once you subscribe we instantly become best friends do we become best friends? the bell set them all over youtube may or may not let you know when i post a video but in case you don't follow me on instagram and let's go ahead and start with this one first i'm going to use these palette things from
treei don't know what you call them , but I'm going to use them as coasters.
You can do the same using spinning tower sets or just regular popsicles, so it's up to you before you paint or stain them. like to give them a good sand u Sing a sanding sponge from Dollar Tree. These were inspired by the coasters I saw at t.j.maxx, maybe about two years ago. As a bonus if you don't want to write thankful blessed you can add someone's name and use it as a placeholder I'm going to tint it with brown gouache paint but of course you can use regular or brown stain which is what a lot of people use , and I'm going to use a sponge for this so I can get into all those nooks and crannies once it's completely dry I'm going to use scraps of my smart vinyl because I don't want to waste and I'm going to try to imitate blessed thankful thankful using my cricut , so you're going to notice here I'm not the brightest crayon in the box and I have an extra ungrateful and thankful l but don't worry I corrected it I removed one of the sprites but I definitely felt silly editing this when I realized account, um, so yeah.
I could have cut these up but I certainly didn't so if you wanted to give these as gifts a nice touch is to take some
dollartree raffia and tie it around it so it looks store bought and much neater than just a bunch of coasters so this is the version my cricut uses and here's a handwritten option for the next one i'm using a dollar tree pizza pan and if you want your pizza pan to have a fighting chance , sand it down, you'll want to sand it down so the paint will stick to it; otherwise it's going to flake off no matter what you're using, so get yourself a sanding sponge from Dollar Tree and sand it down as much as you can to remove that shiny coating.
Now I'm just giving it a coat of satin white because that's the color I wanted for my tray. This is a paint and primer but you can use any color you like, make sure it's completely dry before you flip it over and paint the other side or else it will crack a lot too so be patient now that it's completely dry. I'm going to go ahead and move on to the star of the show, which is these beautiful Dollar Tree s Nakes. Now I'm going to cut the top and bottom. This little saw is from Dollar Tree.
This is probably the only craft I recommend using to make sure you're cutting the snake in the slit area where the saw is. it actually fits and not the other way around if you own this you know what i'm talking about now i'm going to hold the queues because i have another ship in mind but you're going to go ahead and count all of this and i think at the 20 second mark you're going to cut it because that's exactly half, make sure you double check before cutting. I got these elastic bands from the dollar tree hair section and they are very helpful because they hold this together before you proceed make sure you are sanding the bottom of this you want it as flat as possible so it will fit nicely on your tray like this which if you have a regular sander use that if not just sand standing up and sand some more until it's nice and smooth so i'm going to use four snakes total l which is eight loops before securing this in place I want to go ahead and gauge where they're going to go now.
I'm only using eight, but there is a small gap between each snake. you have to figure out how you want to space this out once you figure it out you can attach it using whatever you want. I'm using super glue. You can use e6000 and I'm using a hot glue combo so it has that. instant hold while set by the way this layup was filmed in 2020 all original videos will be placed in the description as well as a pinned comment these are somewhat sped up so if you want to see a slower version of these crafts , then go ahead and look at the original, it's much slower and with much more information, and here's the result, now the tails we removed before I was done using them for another craft as promised, so I'm going to use my mini saw. next but I'm going to measure how I can get this as even as p It's possible because these are different sizes.
I'm going to cut this as best as I can and now I'm just going to sand it down. I want it to be as smooth as possible so it's nice and straight and even. I want to sand it down so it will take a proper stain. The dollar tree has these wooden rounds in the craftsman's square section. However, I used a candle lid. I liked it a lot better and I'm going to join it with regular wood glue. from the dollar tree once it's dry check out this adorable little riser that you can use for candles or pumpkins whatever you want this is probably one of my favorites and the easiest.
I'm using a dollar tree cup and a wooden round and I'm creating the famous faux whipped cream but I'm doing something a little different and I'm adding some jenga pieces to the bottom that way when I put this away it's easier for me to lift it up so i'm going to use some caulk you can use caulk whatever you want i know bargain bethany auntie cuckoo and a few others have done the exact same thing and i think they use caulk definitely check them out the only thing i regret having done is not to add a little foam ball in the middle to use less of this but if you're at home and you're looking at doing that but look how cute it looks for the next one I'm using this pumpkin bucket and before be mad at me i am going to use a dollar tree product however it is not dollar tree but it is a dollar if you get it at walmart or anywhere else i am covering the little holes with some duct tape it goes and then i'm going to use some putty to cover up that hole so this craft was inspired by a beautiful arrangement i saw at starbucks i absolutely fell in love and had to recreate it.
I'm going to use the color pueblo, which is one of my favorite terracotta-like shades, and I'm going to use a foam brush to paint this. Now with this you have to have a little bit of patience because you're going to do one coat let it dry completely and I did a total of thr ee coats to make sure my brush didn't dry out I went ahead and put it in a bag and then i put it in the fridge and it stays exactly the same as if you were still painting now when the magic happens i'm off to use a dollar tree pumpkin to create a lid for this so i'm going to press the pumpkin down so i know where to cut it and then I'm going to use a normal blade, this is what the Starbucks flowers look like now you don't want to pierce it too fast, don't drag the blade, just pierce it and do it slowly so you end up with a nice even piece and the foam doesn't spread out, paint this the same color now.
Of course, this is an orange pumpkin, so it's not going to take as many shades for the stem. I used one of the gold stems and will link the videos to the original stems I created. I've been doing pumpkin makeovers for years I think. this is the first year I haven't done a pumpkin makeover add any florals you want and look at this beauty with the pumpkin top you can set it to the side or you can set it on top your beautiful dollar tree has these really cool sconces every once in a while and i love using them in crafts because they don't look like the normal candle holder they get all the time you can use e6000 or you can use super glue i will link the little color key below that is what squeezes everything i am using a combination of glue and hot glue so it has that instant grip and then I'm going to let it dry, but I'm going to sand all those pieces down so there are no crooked edges.
Don't clean things before they spray paint them so you end up with a really weird texture. Be sure to remove all the dust. Now I'm going to use the same satin white as before because it's a paint and a primer because we have both black and white you want to make sure you can cover that black without adding as much spray paint so it doesn't chip later so it's what chandeliers look like and i'm going to use this type of dollar tree foam cone i'm going to cut it out the bottom part fits perfectly but i'm going to continue to use the rest of the cone so i'll continue to cut it and you can glue it on hot instead.
Now these are the floral pieces that I will be using. These are dollar. tree i'm going to push them up and i'm going to cut this out and start drilling it into my foam so it has a nice edge what you add on top is totally your choice i chose a pumpkin and some candles the dollar tree has these little pillar candles you can stack them twice and add maybe a ribbon in the middle to make them look bigger or you can just keep them stacked individually and this is how it looks in the dollar tree party section. have these napkin rings you can also use these book rings that are available now since back to school old season and i'm going to use raffia This brings three to a pack and each one will give you a small napkin ring.
Paste it somewhere. I don't know why I said paste it. possible to tie the ends together and hot glue add a big chunk of hot glue so this doesn't
fallapart when you cut it I'm pinching it with my fingers and then I'm attaching it to my napkin ring and working my way all the other way around, when it's overlap I continue to the side a little bit and then when I get to the end I'll flood it with hot glue again and then take the ends and tuck it in now you can add a little pumpkin you can add whatever you want but I added one of the nuts from the dollar tree and I think it's super cute for the next one.
I'm recreating my own crown. This crown has been all over the place and I have recreated it a few. times too now i'm going to show you how to make the crown although i'm sure you've seen it all over the place but i'm taking the ping pong balls and with a drill i'm going to drill making sure i go slowly and press down so the drill doesn't slip you can also use a hot glue gun to punch out the holes i'm going to put this on a skewer and paint it that warm caramel hue now i'm going to grab one of these 3d dollar tree hoops i'm going to split it in half and remove those little hooks this is actually really quick because like I said I know you guys have seen this wreath everywhere for this wreath I used two packs and now I'm going to seal the bottom with some floral tape you can do this like so big as you like i just wanted to make this a bit smaller i should have used the smaller hoop in the 3d crown shape to make sure the ping pong balls don't slide all over the place where i'm going to cover the all with floral tape this is just going to create a little stopper so they don't move you can use dollar tree flower al or you can use flowers from walmart michaels sometimes i like to mix and match i feel like doing that doesn't just end up being cheaper sometimes it just makes the final product look much more luxurious so I don't remember where this floral was from but it was pretty inexpensive.
I'm going to accessorize this with some dollar tree pumpkins and I'm using small clothes pins from the square section of the dollar tree crafter. I'm going to attach them to the top and this is going to let me attach it to the wreath without gluing it, which makes it very
easyto reuse these pumpkins. The dollar tree has the tiny pumpkins that also have a clip on, but I thought that was a neat hack to reuse the larger pumpkins, so I'm adding flowers. and putting it in place. I don't want to use hot glue because I want to keep recreating things with this beautiful crown for another super
I'm taking these dollar tree gourds and removing the stem. These are just pumpkins which are not my favorite in I've bought before and I'm also taking socks from Dollar Tree. This is so easy that you are going to go ahead and insert your pumpkin and then cut the sock right where the curve is and the pattern ends once you cut it. I'm going to start tucking this into that little hole where the stems were. I am using the end of the brush. You can use whatever you want and you can do the same thing on the other side, only there's no hole, so I'm done.
I hot glued that, but I cut it a little too short, so make sure you don't do what I did for the next one. I have another beautiful crown using the 3d crown shape. Now I'm going to go ahead and delete it. those little hooks i'm not going to cut this one out because we're just going to use it as is to make sure there are no sticking out areas you don't want to have to put one ontetanus shot now i painted it white you can go ahead and paint it any color but the reason i'm painting it white is because my rope is white and we're going to do a little macrame so i'm using nautical rope from dollar tree I'm using two bundles and I'm creating a little loop at the end and then I'm going to wind it up and then I'm going to create a little knot by looping the end itself so that I'm creating that little knot right there so I take one end and do a number four and then do a loop.
I'm going to link to the original video below because I explain it so much better but you're just going to basically keep creating a four sided alternating number so I'm going to create take one end and then put it there and then the other end on top of that and I'll wind it behind the royal crown, do it all around. so create that little loop to make one number four, the other goes on top and then loop it over and over and over again making sure you're doing the opposite side. This is another crown that I have recreated over and over and over again. again so i have some videos on my channel using this macramé method and i will link them below because like i said i explain it so much better in those other videos.
I leave that little space because this is where I'm going to add my flower. I am using this beautiful fall flower from Dollar Tree. it's only available in the fall and i love the colors right now i'm gluing this one but you can also add little hooks to this so you don't have to glue it and i'm also going to add some pumpkins for the next one i'm redoing this carrot patch sign this line of face patch it's been so many things it's been a sleigh it's been other signs so i'm going to show you how i did it i just took two care signs and removed the glitter the only reason i remove the glitter is so the popsicle sticks stick to it.
I'm covering the little holes at the top using dollar tree putty using some popsicle sticks. I'm going to work all the way up so this stays nice and together and then the other side is painted white and I just use these little dowels as rod things I bought at the hardware store you can also do a jenga border it depends totally up to you i will link to the original video below i will remove everything here and this when i created this i did not use a cricut but you can use a cricut it is much easier to remove than the dollar tree stickers.
I'm going to repaint it white and create a beautiful fall theme using just two dollar tree elements. This collection sign is seasonal. item on the dollar tree and instead of spray painting it because it's like that kind of weird stuff from ikea you just want to use acrylic paint I painted mine blue but of course you can use a more traditional color I'm adding hot glue and spoiler alert. I'm going to have to sand this down if you're recreating it over and over again. This is my favorite Dollar Tree garland during the fall. I love the colors and the little additions and I added them and I think it looks so beautiful for this next one I'm using another buck tree gourd and I'm going to remove the stem I'm going to use a skewer to help paint it any foam brush I've been doing this for years I'm going to use regular white paint and one thing I've changed when it comes to painting pumpkins when I use floral foam I keep it on the plastic that way it doesn't fly all over the place which goes back to really Helpful when you use a brush or foam brush between coats. in a bag put it in the fridge these are the links to the original pumpkins I've been recreating each year and I'll link them below so this is what I mean I put my brush in any bag this is just normal saran wrap it up and put it in the fridge between layers to create the stem.
I am using air dry modeling clay. The dollar tree now takes air dry modeling clay. However, I don't love it. I was told I wasn't using it correctly in the review I did but let me be honest with you the smell alone is enough that I don't want to use it so and you use whatever you want I'm going to roll this into a ball and then roll it into a cone I'm going to take the bottom and just pull it slightly to where I can smear it on the pumpkin and create a stem now the rest of the shaping I'm going to do on the pumpkin to make sure it fits and let it dry really well don't spray paint unless you're completely dry or else it will basically never dry now to attach them I'm just using regular hot glue foam and certain glues don't really mix so it's up to you if you want to experiment with certain glues however I like to keep it safe and I just use hot glue most of the time. stems anyway and use them on new pumpkins the following year so I'm fine with hot glue.
My plan for these pumpkins is to create a beautiful centerpiece and like I said I love to use a mix of dollar tree and non dollar tree stuff so my greenery is not dollar tree but it was super cheap , i think i say the price in the original video i took the dollar tree pillar candles and these dollar tree led candles. I also took the mini pumpkins and am just adding random things over and over again. I also use the mini votives and just keep adding until your heart is happy for the next thing. one has the option to use the dollar tree signs and put them together i would do the same thing remove the glitter flip them over and add popsicle sticks i would recommend using the larger ones just to fold everything but i am using seven packs of these stir sticks you can get these at any hardware store these come three to a pack and like i said i have used seven packs now looking back on this trade i realized its probably a lot cheaper to buy a board of wood maybe not now with the increase in lumber , but you can also buy a sign on clearance and do whatever works for you and your budget so now that I have all six lined up I'm going to measure it and use three of these to reduce this t or the width of those six I'm using three because this will help keep those planks together and one will overlap.
I'm going to do another side of this so there will be a top side and a bottom side and the one that overlaps is going to help support the bottom side I'm going to score it and then I'm going to use wood glue use the wood glue that want to use for this I use gorilla wood glue and I attached that piece right there I'm not adding this piece yet but I wanted to show you how it hangs. I'm going to add one here which is optional only if you want to cover that little part but I would
highly recommend it just so the top has some stability too now I'm going to line up six more on the bottom to make it a pretty long cue here is where I add that piece that overlaps and then I'm going to add a third piece just to give the bottom paddle a little bit of stability and then I'm going to cover the bottom as well once it's completely dry I'm using these cans and little screws and I'm just going to screw that in place it's optional you don't have to do this however I wanted this sign to last forever and it has because it's actually a makeover I'm going to show you the original sign I created and then I'll show you what i did with it which is much easier than the first one after i add my screws in all the small planks i will be adding two more and this is just using glue i just want to make sure this doesn't or bend so I'll add it and then flip it there's a little gap that frustrates me so I'll just add a regular popsicle stick this is because I had a jig at the time and didn't want something as bulky as something else for remove paint.
Used 21 stir sticks which is seven packs and for this I used a regular wood stain use whatever you like you can skip the stain and just do a solid color like I said this is a remake this is what it looked like before i finished using a stencil and instead of using vinyl i made a stencil on hello fall this time im just going to use vinyl for that so i use my cricut to cut out just the word hello by the way for this one i am using another piece of smart vinyl if you put smart vinyl on a mat and cut it using the permanent outdoor vinyl setting it cuts beautifully.
I'm going to transfer this and add it to my sign, as you can see I sanded it down and re-stained it and it looks. Too bad but let's cover that I probably could have sanded a little more but I got lazy so once I add that hello sign I'm going to cover the rest with this beautiful dollar tree sign it's a beautiful steady fall and looks a lot like the original i created which were individual dollar tree pumpkins i had painted in that same color scheme so i was really excited to see this. I use mod podge to seal it even though I'm displaying it outdoors I plan on using this indoors because that fall sign is basically cardb oard I'm using my favorite garland and I added it randomly to the spots that look pretty dirty from the sanding and I think it will looks pretty good.
I also added this to the original so it looks like an improved version of the original. created so that's it for me I really hope you enjoyed this video let me know which one you're going to recreate for the way the wreath is in my latest fall video which I'll also link below and as usual thank you so much. Much to watch, I appreciate you very much and I hope to see you in the next one.
