A St. Patrick's Day Decoration from my Dollar Store Find

I found this little piece of home decor at the Dollar Store. I purchased it with the intent to reuse the frame and came up with a quick and easy St. Patrick's Day decoration. I love how it turned out. It took very little time, used only a handful of products, and cost next to nothing to make. AND it's quite cute! My photos walk you through the process from Dollar Store find to cut holiday decoration.

Punch a stem for your Shamrock from a scrap of the DSP as shown in photo below.

Now, let's fold 6 of the 9 hearts in half and then layer and adhere 2 folded hearts to a flat heart by applying glue down along the folds only.

I arranged the 3D hearts and stem into the shape of a shamrock and adhered them to 4" square piece of Gold Foil. I adhered Garden Green card stock to the inside of the frame, then adhered the shamrock on gold foil to it. A fun and festive little piece of home decor just in time for St. Patrick's Day from my Dollar Store find.

Dollar Store Star & FREE SHIPPING

Here's a simple holiday decoration I made. I picked up a 9" plain wood star at the Dollar Store and transformed it into a holiday decoration. I traced the star onto the back of the Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper you see, cut it out, marked and punched hole through the paper, and adhered the paper to the wood star with Multipurpose Glue. 

On a separate piece of matching Designer Series Paper, I stamped the sentiment from the Thinking, Thanks, and Peace Stamp Set with Versa Mark Ink, then sprinkled with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it. A frame cut from Silver Foil Specialty Paper using the Layering Circle Dies was then adhere to the stamped & embossed circle with Foam Adhesive Strips. Framed Sentiment was then adhered to the center of the star. Lastly, I added a hangar of White Glittered Organdy Ribbon. I enjoyed this little project of mine.

I'm going to drop into the Dollar Store a little more often to see what I can pick up and transform using my Stampin' Up! products. They're not just for card making! How about you? Have you done any Dollar Store crafts? What did you make and what Stampin' Up! products did you use?
