Dollar Store Statement Necklace: Gifts Kids Can Make

Today I am stepping WAY out of my comfort zone and doing something really fun. Isn’t that when you really learn something about yourself? When you push that envelope and really challenge yourself.

I took a leap of faith and joined some of my favorite bloggers in a Dollar Store Decorating challenge. You’ll know why this was so hard for me when you see the fab things these ladies came up with using stuff from the dollar store! They are seriously right up on the top of my cool craftys girls list and I am just happy to be a part of it all.

Y’all all know <yes, I just said y’all, all> by now how much Sweet likes to dress up and put together those quirky, cool outfits that are making her so popular on Instagram. Well, she came home with a secret santa letter this week saying she had to MAKE something for another girl her glass. A very girly girl. Sweet was hoping to make a stuffed toy … still trying to figure out how we are going to make that happen! but in the mean time, we came up with this out of items we found at our local Dollar Tree.

I didn’t notice the challenge was for … DECORATING until after we were through, but I guess technically this could be considered a decoration … flair if nothing else!

If ever these two kindergarteners need something a little flashy, this mardi gras statement necklace and matching firecracker gift bow hair clip are just the thing. The bigger and flashier the better for these two and I think we captured that pretty well.

Sweet LOVES it! She had a great time making them, and just as much fun taking photos afterwards. I swear y’all she is going to blog when she grows up! Just a few of our outtakes …

But wait! That’s not all … there’s lots more in store with decor, crafts, how-to’s and even a party just for you, so I hope you’ll follow along and check out these other amazing ideas as well

    Absolutely precious! I think the best part about this project is that you can totally see Sweet’s personality and stamp on it – and I think those are the best gifts of all. I can’t wait to see what else y’all come up with!

    She is absolutely adorable! She looks like she’s having so much fun!

    I had no idea the dollar store sells Mardi Gras beads. I’m going to have to check that out. It might be fun to have a Fat Tuesday party.

    It’s so lovely to meet you!
