This month’s dollar store divas blog hop is a fun challenge to use a dollar store pizza pan (or similar circular item) to create a decor piece.
We created a Facebook Group for people who love crafting with dollar store items. It’s growing daily and lots of budget friendly dollar store craft ideas are shared. You are invited to join the group. You don’t need to be a blogger to join the group, just have a love for all things dollar store! You can request to join the group by clicking the image below.
Heather, from Daily DIY Life, challenged group members to make a craft using a dollar store pan or similar item. It’s been fun seeing the creativity like this Vintage Halloween Pizza Pan Wreath from Craft Rocker and this Fall Dollar Tree Pizza Pan Craft from Cookies, Coffee, and Crafts.
Halloween Welcome Wall Art
I couldn’t find a pizza pan at my local dollar stores, so I used a faux metal serving tray. It’s similar in size to a pizza pan.
First I gave it a coat of gray chalk paint. It took two coats to get the coverage I wanted. I followed that up with a coat of Dura Clear Gloss Varnish to protect the paint.
Have you seen these little decorated straw brooms at Dollar Tree?
I removed the scarecrow and leaves and spray painted the broom black.
I picked up a couple of the felt Halloween decorations from Dollar Tree. I pulled the hat away from the pumpkin to use for this Welcome Sign. I’ll use the pumpkin for another project.
The dots were a bit too colorful for the look I wanted. To change that, I used hole punchers to make cardboard circles in various sizes. The dots are hot glued to the hat.
Using my Cricut, I created the word Welcome to add to the sign. After cutting and weeding, it’s added to the top of the sign.
In trying to decide how to to hang this, I thought about just adding a ribbon loop to the back, but when I tested that it, the tray wouldn’t be flat against the wall. I have some wire wreath forms in my craft stash, so I glued one of them to the back of the tray.
After cutting and weeding, I added Welcome to the the top of the sign at an angle. I added some vinyl stars to some of the white dots, too.
To give the tray more dimension, I added some mesh rope that I bought at Dollar Tree last year to the rim. It’s hot glued along the way.
I tied a simple bow with black ribbon and added a decorative gem to the center of it before gluing the bow to the broom. The broom is hot glued to the tray.
I bought a sheet of window clings from Dollar Tree without being sure how I would use them. The spider web was the perfect finishing touch for this Halloween Welcome Sign.
The spider web is hot glued to the tray to add something to the blank space on that side of it.
