Good design doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. In many cases, it'll only set you back a buck! Being creative with common dollar store items can save money on decorating projects and help you look fashionably fabulous for less! Here are five examples of how you can save big on your home decor projects:
Frame it: Gallery walls are popular now, but can cost a fortune if pricey frames are used. Dollar frames are perfect for scatter projects where variety in color and size are important.
Burn it: Candle holders are a great find at dollar stores. A side-by-side comparison will confuse even the sharpest eye, so stock up on the candle basics and fillers at a discount!
Store it: Dollar stores should be your first visit for supplies during a reorganization project. The variety of containers, shoeboxes and other plastic bins in fun colors is outstanding. Personalizing the bins for each family member can create a lifetime of good organizational habits.
Serve it: Plates and glassware are always great finds at dollar stores. Don't be afraid to mix and match colors and styles for an eclectic look. Placemats to complete the look are a steal as well--if you can't find the pattern you want, make your own using fun contact paper.
Contain it: Mason jars and other canning container projects are prominently featured on Pinterest. Make your own bathroom or baby room containers using a glass jar, ribbon and wood board scraps. Personalize with coordinating color for a practical and stylish container!
