EVERYONE knows Dollar Tree decorations are cheap, but no one ever said they would be cute.
Luckily, one superfan of the bargain store knows how to upgrade the ugly seasonal decor in an easy fix that will take you less than five minutes.
In a TikTok video, user @sensationalfinds transforms squishy orange pumpkins into modern decorations for fall with just a few simple tools.
While at the dollar store, the expert buys Premier’s Just Yarn Plush in autumnal color, small wooden stems, and twine.
Using a hot glue gun, you can attach the plush material to the pumpkin after ripping off the green stem and wrap it around the item until it’s completely covered – making it look like a soft, red pumpkin.
Then, the small wooden stem can go on top of the squishy pumpkin in place of the ugly green handle.
Finally, a twine ribbon wrapped around the stem completes the quick and easy fall decoration.
Another Dollar Tree shopper makes cute decorations by repurposing $1.25 items from the store.
YouTuber Bargain Bethany shared her Dollar Tree hacks for creating high-end decorations on a budget.
To create a DIY decorative center piece you will need a laundry basket, balloons, balloon clips, balloon glue dots, balloon sticks, a paper towel holder, and zip-ties.
“I’m going to be attaching the balloons to the laundry basket, using these balloon clips,” said Bethany as she demonstrated the hack.
“I ended up making some smaller balloons, and these ones I used to cover up any gaps where you can still see the laundry basket. I used balloon glue dots from Dollar Tree to attach them to the other balloons,” she continued.
She continued: “I got this paper towel holder from dollar tree and I’m going to attach it to [the bottom of] my upturned laundry basket, using zip-ties I also got at Dollar Tree.”
“I’m going to start zip-tying some of these balloon sticks I also got from Dollar Tree to the paper towel holder. I’m going to be attaching balloons to the top of this and this is going to make them look like they’re floating without using helium,” Bethany explained to viewers.
She concluded: “I then placed a teddy bear on top of the basket so it looks like it’s floating on a cloud.”
And a super fan of the store organized her entire pantry with six items, costing a total of $1.25.
