10 on the 10th - Dollar Tree Makeovers and a GIVEAWAY!...

It's 10 on the 10th again and I am sharing a few Dollar Tree ideas!
The three crafty ideas I am sharing cost a total of $7.00 + tax

I bought 2 placemats at Dollar Tree for a fall tablesetting....

...I drew a pumpkin on paper and cut it out to use it as a pattern to trace onto a corner of each placemat.  And then I drew grid lines:

Because the placemat was white, I only had to paint the black checks:

I painted the pumpkin in the top corner with shades of oranges and greens:

They are perfect for a fall place setting:

Remember the sunflowers I made last month?  Go HERE to see how they were made.

These are also great for a little appetizer buffet for two on the kitchen counter:

I am giving these 2 placemats away!!  Just leave a comment below and you will be entered!

Two years ago I shared how to dress up Dollar Tree stemware with a little enamel paint.  I painted only the stems and base:

Here is another Dollar Tree idea I made last year and thought it was worthy of sharing again:

I simply wrapped a fleece scarf around a wreath, tied it with a twistie tie and added a few sunflowers!

So, what did I spend?
$2.00 on the placemats
$2.00 for the wine glasses
$3.00 for the wreath

If you would like a chance to win the 2 placemats, just leave a comment below!

The Dollar Tree is a fun place to get some crafty inspiration!

  11. Such fun placemats Patti. Love your creative projects. What apint did you use?

  12. You've done it again Patti. You are TOO clever!!!

  13. These are wonderful, Patti. Very clever. And I did a wreath like that a couple of years ago with red buffalo at Christmas. It's still a favorite because I can leave it up till Valentine's Day! (Don't pick me for your drawing -- I won last time and I love my bag but if you did, it wouldn't be fair! There will come a day thought....!)

  14. Patti, you have such great ideas! These placemats and the companion checked wine glasses really are cute!! Myself, I feel dull as a board lately (brain fog with getting up really early for school) when it comes to crafting. Lol! Oh, fixed the glitch. :)

    Enjoy getting all your fall decor out,
    Barb :)

  15. Awesome look, Patti, especially all 0f it together!

  16. Patti, I would love the placemats you so expertly painted. However, they would be a gift for my girlfriend of 50+ years who loves the black Courtly Check as much as you do! I often forward your blogs to her to show what you have done with table settings and and such. The MC Courtly Check has provided a gift idea for her many times. In fact! - many years ago you painted a teapot for me for her; it still sits on her counter! Theresa

  17. Love the placemats. You are so creative! :D

  18. The place mats turned out great Patti! What a fun idea!!
