I am very excited to have the opportunity to take part in a Youtube Collaboration with several other great Youtube ladies! The challenge is to shop at Dollar Tree and spend $5.00 for your materials to use them to up cycle an existing item in your home.
I have shared 4 ideas with you in my video and on my blog here. Lets gets started!
Idea #1 I took a $1.00 Giraffe and sprayed it gold to add an extra accent to my desk. I love adding a touch of gold everywhere I can. I have taken my desk up a level just by adding this addition.
Idea #2 I took two of the elephants and sprayed them gold. I glued them on wood pieces to make them bookends. I love the high end look they give.
I knew I loved them when I saw them on several sites. This set was $29.99 and I was not going to pay that. Here is an example of one picture-
I also found this miniature animal at the Dollar Tree along with the canister. I sprayed the top and animal to create a candy jar for my media room. We love to put skittles in it and have it ready for movie night!
This is my favorite piece. I tool the small giraffe and sprayed him gold. I glued him on a painted box I purchased from Hobby Lobby for $4.00. I have this in my master bath room for jewelry pieces I wear each day. This would make a great gift.
Take a look at my video below to see all of these great pieces along with more details. Be sure to subscribe to my channel so you never miss out!
