Dollar Tree Treasures #4

Dollar Tree stores are a great go-to spot for many DIY home decor enthusiasts on a budget. Seeing as that's the story of my life, I figured I could share my Dollar Tree insider-knowledge with you as I find new and noteworthy Dollar Tree items that you, too, can use to beautify your home. Dollar Tree Treasures #4 includes farmhouse signs, aqua honeycomb pottery and faux succulents -- so let's get started!

You might recognize this picture of my DIY whitewashed farmhouse shelves. As excited as I was to finish the shelves I was equally excited to find new and inexpensive farmhouse decor to actually put on the shelves.

"Eggs Milk Bacon" and "Farm To Table" are quintessential farmhouse signs I absolutely fell in love with. I loved that they were in black and white with a distressed look about them. I also loved the whimsical farm animals.

I literally did a happy dance when I found these signs for a dollar each. On a subsequent trip I came across TWO MORE farmhouse signs that are a perfect fit for my dining room farmhouse shelves.



And here they are: "Farmer's Market" and "Farm To Table Guaranteed."


This one is another Farm to Table sign but with a bit of a different look from the first. It's more dramatic looking with a black background and is painted on canvas rather than on wood or plastic like the other signs.



Lastly, there's this 3-D rustic looking "Farmer's Market" sign. I've always loved the depiction of the whimsical rooster-pig-cow pyramid but always hesitated to buy it in any form for fear that I wouldn't like it when my taste inevitably changed. But for one dollar I felt I couldn't go wrong.


Here are the signs displayed with my fall bouquet made up of Dollar Tree Cotton Boll Stems Plus Other Farmhouse Fall Decor.


It was fun to add my estate sale weather vane to the mix since it, too, has a farm animal on it. I love decorating with sheep. 


This next find fit me to a "T" on two counts: 1) I love anything aqua and 2) I love honeycomb patterns on just about anything. I spied these little china pots on one of the bottom shelves, yet to be unpacked from their delivery box. But I saw one sticking out and that was all I needed to "investigate" further.  


The investigation led me to throw three of these beauties into my cart. 


I also picked one with a different pattern from the honeycomb for a bit of contrast.



I thought my Dollar Tree containers looked awfully similar to these containers I found in a local retail home goods store for much more money. What do you think?


Right now they're filled with -- you guessed it -- Dollar Tree faux cacti I purchased years ago. (Dollar Tree still carries them!) In case you missed them, I've already shared my ideas on how to style faux succulents as well as how to use them in DIY terrariums.








While I loved filling them with faux succulents, I also envision other ways to use them. Desk accessories might work, as well as other types of faux greenery. And believe it or not, I filled them with lollipops and they looked fabulous! What would you fill them with?

I know that not all Dollar Tree stores carry the same merchandise at the same time. Even so, it's my hope that what you read about here in my Dollar Tree Treasures posts will inspire you to keep an eye out for similar items that you can use in your own home or as part of your own DIY projects.    

Well, that's it for today, friends. 
I hope I've inspired you in some way and that 
you've enjoyed reading Dollar Tree Treasures #4.

We have a $Tree but it's not nearly as good as some that I have visited in other places. I am going to head there tomorrow though and see if they have those aqua planters!!! I don't do farmhouse style, but those are really cute with your other decor. One of my favorite $Tree finds I found a couple months ago...beautiful lime green dinner plates and round coral colored straw placemats. They look great together...very high end:) Thanks for reminding me I haven't been to $Tree lately!

I'm convinced you have a better Dollar Tree in your area than I do, but I'll be keeping an eye out! Great finds!

I love Dollar Tree treasures and I think you hit the Jackpot. Mean to go back; last year I got 3 galvanized tin "words" like Harvest in 1 package; wish I'd bought more then! Stuck Harvest on a tray to use as a picture--so cute. At HL, and ACMoore, they are at least 4.99--$12 each! I have 2 DT's locally; I'm blessed to be in a small town between 2 cities; spend my "egg money" in both!
