What to Buy at Dollar Tree or Dollar Store for Weddings or Parties. The post then goes on to give a few examples of what these simple items can be turned into. How-to and list of items at Dollar Store Crafts here.
DIY 10 Minute Color Dipped Vase/Planter. This is basically an IKEA hack of the ikea blomster candleholders, but you could use anything. Love how you could make this so colorful and cluster them as a centerpiece or give as a gift. Tutorial from Design Love Fest here.
DIY Backlit Bookshelf. This project uses a dremel and is pretty complicated but I love how it looks.Tutorial at Pretty Handy Girl here. *What I would do: paint the entire bookcase a midnight blue and use glow-in-the-dark paint.
DIY Dry Erase Lamp. Glass, metal and other materials are great to use with dry erase markers. Like this idea of having something graphic and erasable/changeable when you get tired of it. Tutorial for shade and more infomation at The Creative Imperative here.
DIY Dollar Store Chandelier. Made from hanging baskets, spray paint, mardi gras style beads, and chandelier crystals (read somewhere that they are in the floral department at Michaels?). Easy tutorial at Brassy Apple here. Super cute, cheap and fun.
DIY Reverse Stencil Dresser. I find it almost impossible to paint over wood, but this is beautifully done. Tutorial also good because she lists resources: where she inexpensively bought stock images for the decals, and the decals themselves. Tutorial at Musings Flor’s Blog on Design here.
