What is a Dollar Store Craft?
A dollar store craft is a simple DIY project that can be made with basic supplies found at a discount store. You might see them called “Dollar Tree Crafts” or “Dollar General Crafts” — those are brand names. But the basic concept is the same.
The perks of making dollar store crafts is that they are thrifty! When your supplies cost only a dollar each, you can stock up and make a lot! This is perfect for treating all of your family and friends, even when you’re doing Christmas on a budget.
Dollar Tree crafts are also popular to make and sell, because your material cost is low. However, even though your shopping list is inexpensive, you can make some truly special creations!
