Fall Crafts and Table Display with Dollar Tree


I don't know about you but Dollar Tree is a hot shopping spot for my family.  We visit Dollar Tree for just about every party we have, and we have lots of parties.  Our kids buy birthday presents for their siblings there because they find great items that fit their budget.  We always get Mylar balloons there, only $1!  Everything's $1.....So Everybody Leaves Happy.

Today, I want to show you my new Fall table.  Everything came from and can be found at Dollar Tree, which also means that it is super budget friendly.

The first thing I did was cut some cardboard letters.  I chose to spell out FALL.  Then I took the floral moss and applied it to the letters using my hot glue gun, easy peasy.

 Here I am halfway finished with the F.

 I started applying candy corn using my hot glue gun.

Next, I started my two sided wreath.  One side is layered candy corn and the other side is floral moss.  I like the idea of having a two sided wreath that can be displayed with the candy corn side or the moss side.

I went around and around with the candy corn.

Then, I started to layer it.

Now apply the moss to the back side.

Next, I cut off the stem of a pumpkin to make a vase.  I arranged the Fall flowers in the pumpkin vase and that was it.  This was super fast.

So pretty.  I think this would be a fun thing to take to a friend just to say hi or hope you are having a great day!

Lastly, I decided to make pumpkin lids for my drink dispensers.  I simply cut the pumpkins in half using a large knife (be careful).  I applied a thin layer of scotch tape along the bottom edge of the pumpkin so no Styrofoam would drop into my drinks.

 I set the pumpkin lids on my dispenser.

 And here is the dispenser with tea and lemonade.

So, what do you think?  Are you looking to make a Fall display?  Dollar Tree is your one stop shop for everything you need for a Fall party!

Wow, such a great bunch of ideas! That little candy corn wreath is adorable. It's funny how such small touches in the house can make all the difference.

I did a fall display recently, with a mason jar...haha, Dollar Tree is where I went too! :P

That is a super cute party decoration idea. It blows me away the ideas people come up with to decorate their homes and for events. I get overwhelmed trying to figure out what looks good together in a room or a place setting. Makeup and clothes are something else, but a home or even a room overwhelms me.
