Dollar Tree Diy Rope Tray Craft

We are in quarantine! Our state has called a Shelter in Place. We’re fighting the Corona Virus. Our household is thankfully ok. I hope whoever is reading this is doing well also. Hopefully we beat this global pandemic soon and it will be a thing of the past. I needed something to take my mind off of this stressful situation..

I needed to craft. Since I haven’t been out to Dollar Tree in a few weeks, I am low on craft supplies. I went through my craft stash and found some rope and decided to make this tray.

I used four 9ft rolls of rope from Dollar Tree and hot glue. That’s it.

I started by making a circle with the rope, gluing as I went.

I just keep going around and around.

The circle took 21ft (3 rolls), I know! It doesn’t look like that much. It ended up being 11” diameter.

Then I started the walls of the trays. I glued 9ft around the topside of the edge of the rope, cutting it to fit perfectly each layer.

I had a small piece left. I cut it in half and glued handles to the inside of the tray.

I will be putting this in my lake house because rope reminds me of nautical decor. It would be cool to have three different sizes, you could hang them on a wall. Hmmmm, I might just do that..

This satisfied my urge to craft during this stressful time. I hope you all stay safe!! We’ll get through this! God Bless!!

Dollar Tree Throw Pillows Diy Boho Decor

I love throw pillows. I think they are great way to add a cozy feeling to any room. Throw pillows can be expensive! They are so easy to make. I picked up these throw rugs from Dollar Tree and decided that’s just what I would make from them.

I folded them over and sewed the edges, you could use hot glue but I just wanted them to be extra sturdy. I used the stuffing from an old pillow that I had. Then I used hot glue to seal all the edges. It seriously took me a half an hour to make one. The fringe gives them a cool boho vibe. These would also make great farmhouse decor.
