Dollar Store Craft week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This week, I'm focusing on crafts that I've made with stuff from my favorite type of store...the DOLLAR STORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So today, lets kick things off with a knock off from Restoration Hardware. :)



I spied these sweet little potpourri bowls on the restoration hardware website, and though they are cute with the potpourri in them, I thought they'd look great with some moss and my dollar store easter eggs. Plus, they are definitely NOT $30-$40 worth of cuteness...

So off to the Dollar Tree where I picked up these:


Add some Super Glue gel adhesive and let dry overnight. Then add some moss (from the $ store) and some cute eggs (also from the $ store) and voila, perfection....



Stay tuned all week for the Dollar store magic, I've got some really fun projects planned...including another Restoration Hardware project you WON'T wanna miss! :)
