7+ DOLLAR TREE DIY ORGANIZATION IDEAS & EASY HACKS ~ MULTIPURPOSE ~ CRAFT ROOM ~ KITCHEN ~ PANTJun 02, 2021
hello everyone josie here live at 50 and over thank you for joining me here on my channel where you will find mostly affordable practical and
easydiys today i have a new collection of diy
treeorganizers and i am so excited because i am going to use these fall signs they sell at
treeso sit back relax and enjoy this video these fall signs come in these four designs or styles they are made of I think chipboard or melamine not sure but they are like wood and what I like about them is that they are more durable than plastic and the first DIY I'm going to create is something that you can use to organize little things and you know me I've already shown you.
I've had a pretty lazy collection back in the day, so anyway I just want to show you here that you won't do much of a transformation if you don't want to because I like this gingham or you know, buffalo check. style that they have here and I'm just going to be removing this one here where you can hang it on the wall because it was meant to be displayed on the wall because it's a sign so I'm going to use it as is and it's the perfect size for my washes for most of the washes actually so if you are a
crafter or you like to journal or you like to scrapbook or embellish your planners, it just stays on your counter or your desk, you can take it anywhere you want to do your journal as well yes, this is just an idea to organize your laundry. especially if you like to use them for those of you who sometimes ask me what is good washi, a washi is this type of decorative paper tape and they originated in Japan and they are thin enough to cut and I'll show you here. how
easyit is to use it as a dispenser because this wood sign has a sharp edge and all you need to do is cut it like this and you can easily use it so its also a dispenser not just an organizer and using the same sign this is also the size perfect for organizing those paint bottles you know
craftpaint bottles so this is the two fluid ounce size and this is waverly paint and it just fits in there of course you can only fit seven pieces not eight , because it is limited in width as well and also what you can do is try to organize these paint bottles this is another idea if you want to store them properly it is better to do it upside down to maximize space so here is another bottle that is one bottle of paint thinner and I think I can safely fit more than seven comfortably as you can see I was able to fit nine bottles.

These are the two fluid ounce bottles they sell at Walmart as well as Michael's and the same size they sell at Dollar Tree. different brands but same bottle size so i think this one is good too if you want to put them in a drawer where you want to corral them you can buy multiple of these wooden signs and all you need to do is reverse it to remove the han gingham stand and then that will work as you can see here i have this sterilite plastic drawer and most of my craft items are in the sterlite organizers because they are cheap i bought them at walmart so this one is deep so i can actually put several of this in and put u organize my paint bottles and not just my paint bottles as you have seen me organize my washes i can secure them inside this drawer in this next idea i am going to use six pieces of this wood sign and i am just going to install them i am not going to glue them on hot because I'm just showing you some
ideasthat you can do if you want a hot glue but I think even without gluing you can do it use this as c omo is so you can still remove things or move things around so it's really up to you what you want to do here so what I'm doing here is putting three pieces on the bottom and then two pieces on top of the last two pieces from the first layer and then I'm going to put another piece on top of the last layer so it's like a ladder, if you will, with the different stages being steps on a ladder so I'm just showing you here again a total of six you place or line up three pieces on the bottom two pieces on the second tier and then one piece on the top and there you can organize your paint bottles and the cool thing about this style is that you can put your paint bottles and you will still see what is in the back this is also perfect for organizing spices inside your
kitchencupboard so if you have a lot of spices you know they sell these types of spice organizers that you can use in your
kitchencabinets cabinets or even in the
pantry and they are very expensive but here for six bucks you can use this and it can organize multiple bottles I think you can also use this to organize your nail polishes if you are looking for some
ideasto organize your nail polishes and, like I said before you can glue them together so you know they won't come apart easily but I'm just showing you here or I'm demonstrating what you can use this for.
This is what it looks like on the side. Like I said, it's like a ladder where you change the level so you can see what's in the back just one level. it's so hard to find in the back if they're on the same level so if you're going up the height it's better so for six bucks it's a better deal than most spice organizers you can find and you can also invert this if you want to corral it better so I'll just show you how to do it here so the way you line them up with the first three signs or the bottom layer you'll only invert the first one which will be the first one. level and then in the middle or second level you'll invert another and then another or the last one on top so there will be three signs inverted and the other three are not inverted and then you can hot glue them together from the two I like plus the style not just because it's drop proof i don't need to r finish it or paint it looks good to me i like those gingham styles like i said before for the next diy i'm going to use this 11 by 14 frame i got at the tree of the buck and I'll just remove the inserts including the glass after removing all the inserts and the glass I'm just going to bend these metal fasteners here just using my thumbs to bend them now you can remove them or pull them with pliers I decided not to because sometimes it's better not to because if you know this frame can sometimes break easily so i decided to fold them up and then i will use it as my stand to create a hanging organizer so i only need three of this e hello autumn style I really like this style because the design looks like leaf designs here on the outside so I'm just going to glue this to the frame and this frame size is perfect to support these wood signs I'll be using hot glue for demonstration purposes but just i want to advise your that its best to also use in conjunction with your hot glue e6000 or even fix everything they sell on the dollar tree so you can find really fix everything that is similar to e6000 will provide better and more stable adhesion or support for this wood science especially because the finish on the frame is a bit slippery hot glue won't work there they will come off easily especially if you live in a hot and humid area so here i will just measure with my ruler and measure the distance evenly and I think what I've done here is I was spacing them four and a half to five inches apart just testing for size as you can see here I'm using this dollar bottle so I'm just going to mark the bottom of each sign and that's going to be my mark where I'm going to stick them on so I'm satisfied here and as you can see at the top there's just a very narrow where the top is but that's where i'll be hanging from the nails i'm just going to use galvanized nails to hang it on the wall so again for demo purposes i'm just using hot glue but if you're going to do this , also use a commercial grade glue it will hold better or there is a gorilla hot glue you can buy that's like e6000 but it's a little pricey but if you want you can use pixel or e6000 just hot glue it for extra support or so that dries quickly but make sure you use that commercial grade glue so the bottom one is the most compatible of the three signs because I'm also using the frame on the bottom to glue it down as you can see I just pressed it or here so it will hold up better but the other two I'm just going to glue the ends together so that's why it's even more important that those top two are actually secured with a stronger, more durable bonding glue.
If you use the commercial grade glue, you will need to dry it overnight. I would suggest several hours. to do that so here I'm just going to be reinforced by gluing the back with more hot glue on the edges or the ends especially the top two shelves I'm calling them shelves now because they're actually going to be wooden shelves that you can hang on the wall so this is it and if you don't like this look you can definitely spray paint or restore it so now it's hanging on the wall so what I did here is I used two nails that's how I hung it up and look at it now so what?
I've made the heavier bottles at the bottom because it's better support there and then the top ones are the taller bottles which are lighter so imagine this if you have a nail polish collection you can use this organizer to your nail polishes and also for your seasonings or spices again make sure you use commercial grade glue not just hot glue for the next DIY i'm going to show you for five bucks a better version in my opinion so i always give you alternatives here so the first i showed you you don't have to finish it this one i'll show you this will hold up much better again use a combination of hot glue and commercial grade epoxy or e6000 or fix everything to combine all these materials so five pieces of these signs wood any style because what I'm doing Here I'm going to paint this too I show you here I have e6000 and I fix everything to connect them all and then I'm going to hot glue them together so they dry fast because those fix everything and e6000.
I need it to dry overnight but for instant gratification use hot glue to blend together so to hang this on the wall I'm going to take advantage of the hello part of this sign so I can hang this with no additional hardware on the part back because it's already hollow and I'm going to use two nails you can also use hooks but I'm going to use these framing nails and then I'm just going to hang it on the wall using the hollow part at the bottom again I'm just going to level it at the end so using my hot glue I'm going to apply hot glue here in this area that's going to be enough to cover the width of the bracket those two brackets I'm using and then using e6000 I'm going to be combining them and every time I'm using my thumb to press so that the glue sticks better to check the bottom one is level i just want to make sure it can sit on a flat surface like my workbench here and that's when I know it's level but you can also use a level they sell them at the dollar tree too by the way so what I'm going to do here is hot glue again on the one on top making sure that you, going to do this will pair it with an e6000 because i dont want to be blamed if i drop it because i dont live in a hot and humid area for the most part my hot glue is fine but i would suggest using commercial grade glue , then again I'm just going to line up the edges for the end or the top of these two signs here and then I just press with my fingers like this and then for the middle shelf I'm just going to face it at the right height and then I'm just going to apply the glue and then I'll connect the last piece and then use my thumbs or fingers.
I'll just make sure to press down so the glue sticks. better and then i'll let it dry for a few hours before i apply the paint but here i'm just going to test it and it looks great you can probably prop it up against the wall like i'm testing it here and it should work too but i'll hang it up high a Next I'm going to paint this and I'm going to use this lagoon neck it's like turquoise blue and this is an Apple Barrel acrylic paint they sell it at Walmart I think this is like 47 cents a bottle so I'm just using an artist brush , I love this color and this would be perfect for my craft
roombecause as you can see even that organizer is almost the same color and if you have been following me here my channel you probably already know that I gravitate towards this color so just paint it a couple coats of paint I think that's ok so what I've done here is paint with one coat and then let it dry for a couple of hours and then apply my second coat of paint and here it is after painting a a couple coats of paint i made sure to paint the areas that can be seen even the bottom i didn't paint the inside of the shelf because i'm going to put items on there that won't show anyway so here are the two nails just for carpenter's nails and just hammered them into the wall.
I made sure they were in the distance where I could placethis, so I'm just going to be sitting there on top of each nail on each side and voila, it's hanging. Now without me adding any hanging hardware and this is where I'm going to put my paint bottles again since I'm rearranging or redecorating this craft
roomI want to put them all on the wall so I can see them and here it is. I really love how it turned out of the two hanging shelves I like it better because it's more durable because the frame here allows for more support than the other one the picture frame the other one is thinner or more polished or more modern this one is more farmhouse for my last DIY I'm going to use six of these fall signs and I'm going to connect three two times so three and three because this is going to be two levels and this is going to be a caddy.
I'll either use a hot glue combination with e6000 or fix everything as well and just align them together. I will use this solution as much as I can. buy this at dollar tree in the hardware section and i tell you it's really very durable but make sure you have proper air venting because this one really stinks and can get dc if it's sensitive so i just want to make sure i give you a bit of caution so after applying a generous amount of fixol i also put in a generous amount of hot glue to reinforce my connections and then press again with my fingers and then use some binder clips to adhere them better. so I'm going to be doing the same thing on the side here and I'm just going to do this in fast motion and then leave them to some music while I do the other set as well after letting them dry overnight that's how they turned out and I have a rack of three compartments so this is going to be two tiers and I'm going to use as I said before as my support these two cutting boards shaped like a paddle board or the plastic cutting boards they sell at the dollar tree so I'm going to put them on each side this is another version of my diy that I created almost three years ago and I'm going to insert a picture here and in the top right hand corner I'll put a link or a card to that video you can click on that so you can watch the full video when I created it three years ago.
I know some creators or even viewers have already used this for inspiration to create their own projects and here I'm going to show you a different version because I'm going to be using this as my organizer for my k-cups and tea bags for my hot drink station and this is going to be farmhouse style you're going to love it now here I'm just showing you I'm just lining them up making sure you know they're level again I'm going to lay them out. I want to make sure that when I'm creating multiple tiers or more than one tier of organizers, I have enough clearance for my hands or even anyone reaching for things, especially the items underneath. combination again using fix everything I'm going to apply to the side and then I'm going to apply my hot glue as well so I put the cutting board of the paddle board on top of my work space so I can see the bottom lined up to my wooden signs or my shelf and i just make sure i line them up correctly and the bottom edge of the cutting board lines up with the bottom of my shell so i press again with my fingers to make sure it's secure and at this point because of the hot glue that dries fast it's going to be a bit hard to move at this point already, so I made sure it's already lined up.
Next I will assess or look at where I will put the top tier so that I have enough clearance and not just at the bottom. level but also where I'm going to be putting my handle because this is going to be a caddy caddy has a handle and I'm going to take advantage of that hole that you see there from the cutting board where I'm going to I'm lining up my handle so I just want to make sure I have enough clearance on both trays or both rips, so here I'm just repeating the steps I've done on the other combining the application of my solution and my hot glue. pressing with my fingers to make sure the tray adheres to the plastic cutting board and then while in this position I apply fixative and my hot glue to both shelves or trays and then go to place the cutting board on top plastic and make sure that board lines up with the board on the opposite side using my fingers again to press to make sure the glue sticks and then I just try to see if it's level and then I'm drying it overnight on the side without stopping like this then after overnight drying, I'm going to paint it and I have this oleum oxide chalk paint on linen.
I bought it on Amazon and will link to it in the description box below in case you're interested, I love this color and it matches the color of the cutting board, although I'm going to apply a bit to the cutting board just so it It's a little more even so I'm just going to put a couple coats of paint on these wood signs or my tray cut the shelves so here it is after I put a couple coats of paint on and I'll probably do a little touch up later if i see there are some areas but i think it looks good as it is then i will be putting on my handle as the first project i used the roller tha i bought them at dollar tree i dont know if they still have them but at back then i bought 10 pieces of this so i have to use what i have but you can also use the toilet plunger handle they sell at dollar tree as a fact i have used it on a few of my projects too but like this roller is slightly shorter than e l width of my caddy, I improvised by adding on each side some cardboard cutouts, so that's something I cut out. from a shipping box the thick one don't use thin cardboard or else it won't hold it because you know those shipping boxes are very durable so I just cut the boxes with the circle shaped ends of my roll pin and I just estimated as you can see here I'm testing the size and I see this is what it looks like they're just cardboard and then I'm going to hot glue them on each side and here's the piece of cardboard you know from the box shipping I just want to show you so I cut two on each side and then I cut out the shape of the ends of my rollers and then I glued them there so this time I'm going to use my e6000 and then apply my e6000 to each side of my roller, my makeshift extended roller which is and then i'll also hot glue it for a quicker bond but the e6000 will give a more stable bond that's why you have to combine the e6000 with the hot glue so it dries fast with the hot glue and then it joins better with the e6000 so put as much glue in there or be generous with your glue if you are going to do this because again this will be the handle and it will support the weight of not only the caddy but also the contents in it another option would be to use some sort of screw that it can go through and it will be more durable than using glue but the epoxy should be durable too it's like liquid nails and here you can see me also trying to reinforce more through the hole where the perimeter or the ends are and yeah that should be covered whatever i'm doing ok and here also on the opposite side here i'm doing this on the edges and not the one that doesn't connect to anything so it's the connection i'm reinforcing then i'm pressing both ends with my fingers and then i'm drying this again overnight.
I'm going to paint my handle and to give a little bit of contrast. I'm going to use this waverly paint or chalk paint. It is the color of the elephant. Originally, I was going to leave it unfinished because I like it. the natural look of the roller but i decided to paint it gray or this elephant finish so i can use it as a contrast and since i'm going to put the buffalo checks it will blend better and here it is after a coat of paint and i'm going to show you again that's the gray waverly elephant and i bought it at walmart i just want to show you my original or the first diy from last time three years ago and as you can see here i actually have two iterations here where i also revamped th is a diy organizer and I decorated it for the fall of last year.
I'll insert it in the top right corner here as well as you can see I also used the rollers as a handle and painted it white and then wrapped the string in there just to finish it off and I'm going to mimic this buffalo check style too using the same paper, it was a wrapping paper that i got a target dollar point for a dollar and i got it back at that time too since i still have a lot left over. I'm going to use the same paper, but you can use any type of paper, scrapbook paper would work, or contact paper in any style you'd like.
Dollar Tree sells a lot of contact paper and these would work just fine. also, but here I'm just going to trace with my fingers where I'm going to place this wrapping paper and press it more like a crude method that I've used so that I can trace the notch there the edge of the cutting board and then just using my fingernails to mark, you can use any sharp object but I think fingers would be better so you can really feel where it is and then I'm just going to use a pair of scissors to cut and I'm going to use my paintbrush and I'm going to apply this mod podge and this is how I'm going to attach this paper on my cutting board I'm just applying a generous amount here of mod podge and then making sure when I attach my paper there aren't a lot of air bubbles and then I'm applying mod podge again on top to camouflage the ends of my handle I'm applying this nautical rope to finish off that will cover up any blemishes on those edges and to cover up the holes I'm also winding up the piece of this nautical rope and then just to cover it up, like I'm creating a button to cover it like the other one I did three years ago this is how I finished it so I'm attaching it and repeating the same style or steps on the opposite side and here it is I love how this one turned out and it has three compartments on each tier so a total of six compartments and I'll show you I'm going to use this to organize my k-cups so I have these decaf k-cups that I'm organizing in each row can fit up to six pieces of this k-cups and so for each tier i have 18 total 36k cups and i know i have mentioned here in the past that i have stopped using k-cups because they weren't recyclable but i found a site and some of you also mentioned that they are now they can recycle and they can reuse them to sprout their seedlings so i decided to give it another go and these are the decaf ones because i cant drink with caffeine and i love this style because it goes with my style and instead of those bulky keurigs i have this unique dispe nsador for k-cups and i bought it on amazon this is not sponsored but i found one that would work well it doesn't eat so lots of room and i can put it on top of my tray here i love this tray i have with our initial family i've been going for t years of housewares it has some tiles it is easy to clean and i like that chef they carry the bread so i can prop it up there and those mugs i bought them at the dollar tree also these are the coffee mugs they sell they have the gray and the black so i also bought them there so everything blends well.
I am very happy with how this caddy turned out and I love it, but since we are also tea lovers, I will show you what I can use. this is also for organizing my tea bags so here i will be lining up all of our different flavored tea bags so its up to you if you want to use it this way in addition to the K cups so i kept the K cups down in the lower level and then the tea bags on the upper level and since we are tea lovers here me and my daughter and then my husband as well and we drink decaf coffee and some of our teas are also decaf so I think this is the perfect organizer and if you're going to put a price on this one i mean the full value of this isn't even ten bucks to create anizer
organizationthat will actually look good is just amazing so i hope you guys enjoyed this video y'all if you did give it a thumbs up please share it with anyone who needs a project like this and wants to save some money and i love that.
