It’s that time once again…  Time to announce the winner of the $5 craft challenge sponsored by Dollar Tree!  It was a really tough decision, but we narrowed it down to our five favorite projects, and chose one outstanding entry to award a $100 Dollar Tree gift card!  But before we talk about the contest, there’s someone we need to introduce.

This Month’s Guest Judge

We’re happy to have our friend Breanna as our guest judge this month.  She is the editor of one of our sister sites, Dollar Store Mom, so she knows all about crafting on a tiny budget.  If you’ve never visited her site, make sure you check it out!

And now, it’s time to take a look at our top five favorite submissions!  (Drumroll, please!)

5.)  Dollar Store Screen Printing by I Love 2 Dream, Do You?

4.)  Wicker Hanging Lantern by Ariana at Dear Wallet

3.)  Summer Dress by Amy at Creativity Date

2.)  Speech Bubble Lamp by my house is cuter than yours

And the winner of the $5 challenge, blowing our minds with off-the-charts creativity…
