    Jewelry Projects Using 'Dollar Tree' Materials

    28With a little ingenuity, you can turn almost anything into a piece of jewelry! Need proof? We have made and featured all kinds of various jewelry projects using random stuff from Dollar Tree. Next time you're perusing the aisles and contemplating what you should create, keep these ideas in mind for inspiration.





    Recycled Plastic Cup Washer Necklace

    Plastic party cups aren't just for holding punch and beer - they also work as shrink plastic! It's a great make-and-take project for parties, since a $1 package of cups will give you enough materials for all of your guests to participate.

    [Rustic Spoon Pendant

    We love this necklace from Busily Spinning Momma, which uses a plain ol' dinner spoon and some distressing techniques to make a new piece of jewelry with an antique look. You could also try many different variations for decorating this necklace!

    Message in a Bottle Necklace

    It's hard to resist the tiny bottles of nail art goodies at Dollar Tree - not for the contents, but for the bottles themselves! They're perfect for making all kinds of jewelry projects, including this "message in a bottle" necklace by Mad in Crafts that is also a fun way to give someone a secret message or commemorate an event!

    Make Melted Bead Jewelry
    4 April 2013


    http://dollarstorecrafts.com/2013/04...-bead-jewelry/

    There are some craft supplies that I have a hard time using to make grown-up looking crafts. Pony beads are one of those supplies; I look at them and all I can see is the lizard-shaped keychains I learned how to make a summer camp when I was ten. And despite the fact that I never actually use them in my crafting, somehow there is still a huge Ziploc full of them in my stash, always taunting me. Do you know the feeling? Wondering what to do with those darn things? Here is a great idea from Desiree at The 36th Avenue that is as easy as it is cute. She and her girls melted some beads to create bright, cheerful jewelry! [how to make melted bead jewelry http://www.the36thavenue.com/2013/03/melted-beads.html ]

    Project estimate:
    ■Plastic pony beads, on hand or $1
    ■Oven or toaster oven, on hand
    ■Jewelry findings, on hand or $1 and up
    ■Hot glue, on hand

    --- I have an old electric skillet with the teflon scratched up - I may try this since you use the parchment paper. Then I could work outside and not heat up ( or smell up ) the house.

    Sailor's Knot Bracelet
    http://thehomesteadsurvival.com/?p=20966

    ■3.5 yards of twine
    ■14 ounce can for a smaller bracelet or a 20 ounce can for a larger bracelet.
    (Any other round object that has the appropriate circumference for your wrist will do. We have used cut sections of a pool "noodle" )

    So, what can you do with this one-step tie dye kit? All kinds of fun stuff! You might remember the nifty tie dye jewelry that Shannon made with it a while back. http://dollarstorecrafts.com/2012/05...abric-jewlery/

    Spring has arrived, and around here that means it's time to plant the garden! Do you buy live plants or start your own from seeds? If you answered from seeds, then my next question is, what do you do with your empty seed packets? Amy from Mod Podge Rocks! didn't want to throw hers away because the pictures on them were so pretty, so instead she found a way to recycle them into necklaces! Has there ever been a craftier excuse to raid the dollar store seed selection? Methinks not!

    how to make a seed packet necklace http://modpodgerocksblog.com/2013/05...-necklace.html

    Project estimate:

    ■Seed packets, on hand or 4 for $1
    ■Wooden pendant base, on hand or $1
    ■Jump ring, on hand
    ■Cord or chain, on hand or $1
    ■Paint, on hand or $1 and up
    ■Mod Podge, on hand
    ■Dimensional magic, about $5
    Total: about $5 and up

    Make a Book Page Ring



    Paper is one of the most amazing craft supplies there is. No, really! It's inexpensive, easily accessible, and simple to manipulate in many different ways. Take, for instance, this book page ring by Adrianne at Crafts Unleashed. Awesome, right? She used Hard Coat Mod Podge to seal the ring, making it durable enough to withstand day-to-day wear. You could use any pretty papers you have on hand to make this project, and you could even use this technique to create other paper jewelry as well, such as pendants or earrings! [how to make a book page ring http://www.craftsunleashed.com/jewel...dge-paper-ring ]

    Project estimate:
    ◾Book pages or other paper, on hand
    ◾Sandpaper, on hand or $1
    ◾Hard Coat Mod Podge, about $7
    ◾Alcohol ink (optional), about $3

    Total: about $7 and up
