Why I love this craft

One of my newest and most favorite craft supplies to work with has been these faux wall adhesives that Dollar Tree sells.

I’ve been amazed by the things crafters have come up with. I knew it’d only be a matter of time before I jumped on the bandwagon as well.

And the only thing I love as much an a high-end-looking dollar store craft is an upcycled craft. And this project combines the best of both worlds!


You only need a few supplies to make this craft: a faux tin tile, a tin can, paint, and some greenery stems.
