Dollar Store Crafts spring craft challenge

Let’s try this again! We had a few technical difficulties with the challenge, so we are rebooting it! We’re very, very excited to announce this month’s crafting throwdown:  Spring Craft Challenge! Each challenge, we will present you with an inspiration item or theme, and one lucky winner will receive a $100 gift card to Dollar Tree!  The theme for the May challenge is:  Spring cleaning!

Spring is the perfect time to purge, scrub, and reorganize for a fresh start.  We’re looking for projects that fit under the umbrella of all that spring cleaning encompasses.  Decorate a caddy for carrying your cleaning supplies, organize your junk drawer, improve your laundry sorting system…  Whatever your needs are this season for organizing and tidying up, we challenge you to do it dollar store style!
