The Dollar Tree. The place that ever single item is only 1 DOLLAR, and we spend more on items that we truly don’t need, but hey- it’s just $1! Are you with me on that??
Well, lately the Dollar Tree has been one of my absolute favorite places for some pretty dang awesome DIY projects! I have done several Facebook lives lately that have shown my readers some great ways to turn little dollar items into awesome Christmas/home decor! It feels like the more I do, the more imaginative I get each time I do in there.
Well, the other day, I was wandering the aisles, making sure there was nothing I “needed”, and I spotted these little cute gumball machines. As soon as I saw them, I knew what I wanted to do with them!
I took it apart (SUPER EASY)!
I then grabbed some paint I had on hand (Any kind will do, I am sure…but I had this white chalk paint), and I painted all of the RED part white.
While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled iridescent glitter on it so that it had a beautiful “shimmer” to it! You have to do this while the paint is wet, or it will not stick. **Don’t hate me. This is a messy project :D**
When that had dried, I put the gumball machine back together, with the exception of the top. I then poured some “fake” snow into the globe and added several mini glass ornaments that I had on hand! You can get these after Christmas for dirt cheap- and for only $1.00 NOW at Walmart and places like that!
For a little added touch, I took some ribbon I had on hand, along with a piece of greenery and berry and tied a the ribbon in a knot and then hot glued the greenery/berry on top. This part truly set it all apart!
That is literally all! SO quick and easy and SUPER DUPER CUTE!
