While the inventory at Dollar Tree is constantly changing, there are some things that you can almost always find there.  One item that is a constant on their shelves is night lights, but plain, boring night lights.  Luckily, they are easy to dress up!   At Squirrel, the blog of Etsy shop Exhalia Studios, crafter Bobbie Julie shares how she used wire and beads to make a twisty tree to decorate one.  I love how the glass beads look when illuminated from behind!  If you want to work one into your fall decor, use beads in autumn colors instead for a more seasonally-appropriate look.  [how to make a beaded tree night light]

Project estimate:

  • Night light, $1
  • Wire, on hand or $1 and up
  • Beads, on hand or $1 and up

Total: $1 and up
