Dollar Store Fun Finds

I stopped by the Dollar Tree with my daughter just to pick up a couple of things.  As usual though, many more items caught my eye.   I found several things that I can use for upcoming projects.    I bought this tinsel to make tinsel trees I saw last week in several linky parties.  I cant think of who posted it off the top of my head, but when I make them, I will be sure to link to the orginal post.. They were gorgeous!

I found these cute clay ornaments.  I have a couple of possible ideas for these. 

I found a cup of snow in the holiday section and the face of the snowman inspired me to pick up some glassware to paint. 

There was still a good size selection of ribbon that would be perfect for crafting or wrapping gifts. 

I was excited about this find.  They were several themed cupcake wrappers with coordinating picks for cupcake decorating.  I also saw  4 pk treat boxes which would be perfect for those giving away cookies and other treats this Christmas. 

In the book aisle, I found several Chicken Soup books that would make a nice gift for someone who could use a pick me up.

I was intrigued by the Poinsetta in a can. Supposedly you can grown a real poinsetta from what is in the can.  I don't know if it will work our not, but for $1 I figured why not try it out.   This could be a fun novelty gift, stocking stuffer or home school project.  You will need to keep it away from your cats though, because real poinsettas can be dangerous to cats.

I am going to use these candy canes with my outside decor.   It is worth $3 for some extra Christmas cuteness.

I am going to try and stay away from the Dollar Tree for at least a week or so.  I know I will be back soon though, I saw several ideas for stocking stuffers.
