Genius Ways to Use DOLLAR TREE WOOD + DIYS (without power tools!) Krafts by KatelynJul 08, 2022
Did you know that Dollar Tree is stocking more and more real
wood? So many shapes and sizes that are coming out. My favorites are these long thin pieces that we can use for so many things that will make our project so much better. it's all going to be sturdier so much better than those cheap things like mdf you see all the time on the
treeso excited they're coming out with so much
woodlet me share with you some great and fun
waysyou can put these to good use , no
toolsrequired , also thank you very much colon for sponsoring today's video and let's go ahead and get in ok for this first DIY we are putting several of these 18 inch long boards together to create one huge piece this is going to be kind of a large wall organizer board and I'm obsessed with how this turned out so to connect them I'm using hot glue but for long term use definitely invest in a wood glue but for video purposes I love to just use glue hot to make it um done quickly so i dont have to wait for everything to dry but put this all together.
I'm going to put a little shelf on the bottom with two pieces of wood and then I needed a whiteboard on top so the best way. i could make this to custom fit is cut one of the cheaper mdf signs and i knew i could paint this and i could write on it so the nice thing about mdf signs is you can use it like a razor blade or a razor to cut this to size to fit perfectly and I'm painting it with some of the
treeblack chalkboard paint. Now you can paint this any color because it's going to have a lot of writing on it.

It's going to have hooks for keys or organization like sunglasses I wanted to keep it a little bit simple so I'm going to use white I'm not just dry brushing it but I'm doing it lightly so you can see some of the wood sticking out and then I created this little shelf it's just two of the skinny pieces of wood t These are the shorter pieces and I glued them together and that's going to create the little shelf at the bottom so you can see that this was an easter sign i recycled so this is the perfect way to use these and i'm gluing the ugly side down so no one ever knows and then hooks i picked these up at walmart dollar tree they have some items that you can use for hooks they have some bigger hooks but i love these little gold ones and they are so easy to screw in there.
I didn't glue the shelf until I had the screws in there because I knew they would go through the thin piece of wood and want to stick through the back so for this shelf I wanted a tighter hole in case I put anything in there so I'm adding some wood glue to give it a really strong hold. There are many more projects to come so don't go anywhere but I want to take a second to tell you about a new game I've been loving and share with you more about two dots and thank you dots dots for sponsoring today's video two dots is a free puzzle game loved by millions of people and with more than 115 million downloads worldwide.
You have to go see what everyone is talking about and why everyone loves it. connect color dots, yes it sounds simple but as you progress you will learn strategic
waysto get rid of each color dot and enjoy weekly events like scavenger hunts, travel across different worlds and treasure hunts. the perfect game for summer when you are by the pool or have a minute to yourself to de-stress and relax while enjoying beautiful minimalistic designs with relaxing music this is a game you can play at your own pace so its not like the anxiety driven by the clock or something but you can actually think strategically and figure it out this is really the most fun game i've been playing this for a while now and i've gone a above level 20 i think and i have my husband on board he loves it which makes it even more fun we can see what level we're at which ones we're getting stuck on or which ones we're trying to earn our
powerups so it's a lot of fun make sure you click the link to below in the description box and it really helps my channel if you use that link to download it on your phone but its free for ios and android now i have made stairs using as the toilet plunger or different pieces of wood, but I thought it would be fun to create a new flat decorative staircase, so this literally takes minutes to put together.
I'm using two of the longer boards as well as some of the smaller ones for the small steps on the staircase and this is going to be decorative as a table. You could hang this on the wall. You could add a piece of jute twine or string to it. I glued the piece. of wood at the top and bottom just to make sure this stays as steady as possible. Where possible I left a little bit of extra room at the top so whenever I put it on a shelf or something I have more room there to decorate but for this I kept it super simple I'm just going to be adding a wreath and a little word to it, but I think a ladder like this will be so much fun to decorate for fall and Christmas.
For this, I'm going to go in with some colored chalk paint. I'm painting everything, leaving a little. of exposed wood and then go over that with a little bit of elephant like a darker gray chalk paint and just lightly dry brush over that now I'm going for a more distressed look so I took a little bit of sand paper love how it looks every time a lot of that wood is showing through the edge and it will also give it a lot of detail so if i decorate this very minimalist it still has a ton of texture and detail so i glued what i wanted in place.
I already had this green. corona, but as I mentioned, you could change this corona for the very season and you never have to put this away. I feel like a framed glass artwork has such a luxurious look, especially the ones without the back. I'm using dollar tree glass an 11 by 14 frame and I'm going to use a little more of this thin wood and frame the whole thing so I'm actually using a yellow miter box and I saw I picked this up at walmart and you can very easily cut any of this thin wood and make it the perfect size for your project.
I cut it to size and then I'm going to glue it in place now for projects like this I don't really want to glue it to the glass. I'm going to use some popsicle sticks to join all the corners together whenever I put pieces together like this and I want to look for a wall decal that has a clear back so I can cut this to any size and it's not going to have like an ugly white border to your around but it's going to blend now it's got a frosted look to it so it's going to show up to blend all of this.
I am going to modify it and that will also keep it intact. It won't peel off but it will blend in with the edges of the stickers and make it look like it was meant to be one piece these little dollar tree picture hanger kits are really cool they come with these little eyelet hooks I'm going to put it right on these wood corners and just screw them in place add a jute twine hanger i added a couple of beads but this will be a really fun way to hang it and it will hold up much better screwed into the wood rather than hot glue something on the back for the dollar tree to stand out like plastic trays. but I don't like to decorate with them, so I wanted to create my own wooden tray.
I wanted to decorate my own wooden tray. I'm using some of the thicker pieces and I'm gluing them in a rectangular shape for the bottom because I want to do this as a decorative tray I'm putting up a piece or If any mdf sign will work this is just a leftover Christmas sign I cut it to the measure and then I'll glue it to the bottom before attaching it. I am adding a piece of decorative scrapbooking paper. My favorite place is to go to the hobby lobby and stock up on them but I thought this one with a little script was perfect and this is also something that will go into fall and christmas very very nice just having to change the little decor I was worried about putting white on this off white ivory script paper but it actually looked really really nice it matches my decorating style i have a lot of whites as i love bright white but i also bring tons of ivories and light wood colors , I pasted this on top.
I knew I needed some really nice decorative handles and instead of just screwing the handles in there I decided to make my own out of these wooden beads. I picked them up at Dollar Tree a while back, but you can order bills online. Or choose not to hem in the hobby lobby, which is one of my favorite places to get them, but I drilled holes in the sides and then tied knots on the inside of the board. Obviously I'm not going to pack any heavy stuff in here, just use this for decoration. purposes, but I love how it looks with the wooden beads hanging from each side.
You can also use these large pieces of wood to cut out some of the pieces for the new dollar tree pegboard system. I'm putting two of the square pieces of the pegboard together. I'm going to create a frame around it so I was really lucky that two of these together would make the perfect size for the 18 inch board. I'll use it for the sides and then I had to cut both of them. pieces of wood on this on the smaller edges I'm painting everything gold and then using tower blocks to attach this so it doesn't fall over and then you can buy separate little accessories that will help you hang them if you want to use them adhesive or screw it to the wall this is a heavier piece so i ended up screwing it to the wall but since this was in my craft room and i love pink and gold together i decided to add this cute little pom pom ribbon trim so i just I glued on the inside before hanging above, I love taking dollar tree artwork but a lot of times I don't use the frames so for this project I'm stealing the glass but I'll save these two beautiful prints for a different project , so use the glass. i cut more pieces of wood that would fit around this vase because i am framing it but i am creating as a tray this will be used for make up or jewelry this would be a great gift idea just make sure you are putting together they are really sturdy and they use a strong adhesive for me.
I'm adding tons of hot glue but putting in some pressed flowers so the idea is to use two picture frames and then you can sandwich these pressed flowers together. I picked them up from the hobby lobby. i arranged them how i wanted and the n glued the wood around them as this is going to be a jewelry box or something im putting it on a dresser or a table i dont want it to scratch anything so i am using a bit of felt i picked up at dollar tree gluing this to the back so the glass doesn't scratch the paint or do any damage. another awesome way to use them is to put a lot of them together to create a pallet sign so every time i used to set up at craft fairs we sold tons of pallet signs and we were breaking boards and nails and it was a big deal so maybe it's much cheaper to go to home depot and you can get it cut up and save money and that's great if that works for you but very convenient as long as you know what project you have in mind just pick it up spending a few extra bucks per dollar tree to grab these pre cut pieces so for this project I'm gluing it together to make a firm palette but this is so easy I just paint it the color I want and go ahead and decorate and I don't have to use any power
toolsfor this I'm using the truffle brown chalk paint and I paint the whole thing down, sand it down, but then I'm going to go in with a little bit of mineral color for a change.
I did so, added some greenery and a ribbon on top. This is something you could customize. You could put your last name, but I think it would be a really fun project for fall and Christmas time, but right now I just wanted to do it. to do something that I could put aside like all year, but I went ahead and decided to add some colorful flowers. The amazing thing about making DIY pallet signs is that if you do it right, you are careful and you make the back pretty. I can make these reversible so I didn't in this project but it would be very easy to flip a pumpkin or something that is reversible for fall and Christmas or maybe even Christmas and spring like.
Works for you though but I feel like that it turned out really cute but so many ways you could make this your own style thank you all so much for watching today's video let me know what projects you have used for these real wood pieces I love working with real wood obviously i use it all the time on my channel and i think its so helpful the dollar tree keeps showing it in different shapes and sizes be sure to check out the colon below click the link and start having fun .
