14 Best Dollar Store Crafts for Christmas

Few would argue the fact that Christmas is one of the most expensive holidays there is. With decorating, gift giving, buying and cooking tons of food, traveling, and all of the parties we host and attend, our bank accounts get more and more bare.  

Of course, we can't forget the amount of crafting we do. Sometimes these Christmas craft ideas we find end up being more expensive than the store-bought versions. That's why we have put together this fabulous collection of the 14 Best Dollar Store Crafts for Christmas. In this collection you'll find 14 amazing projects that can be made cheaply without losing any beauty and charm.

Yes, you can buy the materials at a dollar store, dollar section, or upcycle what you already have. Many crafters take great delight in creating something out of "nothing." In this case, unimpressive dollar store items. You will be amazed at how quickly and easily you can transform some of these cheap materials into something stunning. 

Included in this collection are various Dollar Store DIY Ornaments, Dollar Store Gift Wrapping ideas, and Dollar Store Decor that is bound to dazzle.  Some of these projects simply use the idea of upcycling or improving what's already there. For example, take a cheap, boring ornament and then add your own embellishments. Another idea shared below involves buying a plastic platter from the dollar store and painting it with your own design. This doesn't mean you have to be super artistic. In any of these projects, you can customize it to your comfort level. Use stencils, stickers, or even printables

Dollar Store DIY Ornaments

Give your Christmas tree some pizzazz with these incredible dollar store crafts. By using cheap plain glass ball ornaments that can be found at any dollar store, you can make countless creations to decorate not only your tree, but all over your home. With the Affordable Gold Dipped Ornaments project, you add some glamour to the base of these glass balls by dipping them in gold paint. Then these DIY ornaments are filled with various gold materials found at the dollar store or in clearance sections. Things like rolled paper, ribbon, and fake pearls. It turns out beautifully!

Dollar Store Gift Wrapping

Gift wrapping can be surprisingly expensive. Sometimes you will end up spending more on the wrapping than you did on the actual gift! Well, not with these clever ideas! The best part about these gift wrapping crafts is that you can use the materials you find at your local dollar store to make similar finished products. Add those personal touches, like a special handwritten message, to make the presents that much more impressive.
