Creative Dollar Tree Easter Craft Ideas

Dollar Tree Easter Ideas for Parties

One of the top questions I get asked on a regular basis is “How do you afford all the party decorations for each holiday and occasion?My go-to is The Dollar Tree but each dollar store has goodies to be found! Most people might not think to head into their local dollar tree but when you entertain as much as I do, you’ll find it has some fabulous crafty items. I’ve actually seen almost identical items at higher end craft stores and the dollar store. Shop around, ladies!

Here is all that I purchased (for super cheap) and READ ON to see the after!

Now, to show you some of the cute items I found and how they can be used for Easters, spring parties, or birthdays!

How cute are these MINI EASTER BOXES? I grabbed a couple designs but there were lots more! Perfect for Easter Parties for the kids! (or puppies, fill these cuties with dog bones – I have puppies on the brain as I just finished a dog birthday shoot!!).

Fill them with popcorn, mini cookies, peeps, easter egg candy, possibilities are endless!

easter tulip pops

This was one of my FAVORITE finds! Tulip Pops! HOW CUTE! Perfectly mini size and long white sticks, they are 6 for $1 – yes.. ALL 6 in 1 pack for $1! Use them as cupcake toppers or tie a bow around all 6 for a favor!

Cupcake Liners – you can never have too many! I love the green bunnies for Easter and the plaid for spring occasions!

dollar store easter eggs

A must-have Easter decoration is EASTER EGGS! The dollar stores are filled with different kids of Easter eggs – big packs for oh yes…. $1! These were glittered and come in lots of colors! They also have Easter eggs on sticks that you can use for decoration too! LOVE! Use them to make a Starburst Mirror like this one from JC’s Loft!

I hung them from this little pink tree (also $1) that I picked up! For $3 – 2 packs of Easter Eggs + 1 tree – I have a cute decoration!

Throwing an Easter party or Easter Egg hunt? Let children decorate Easter eggs and write their names around the pots with paint pens! Easy + inexpensive party activity that doubles as the favor! :)

I also found LOTS of glittered Easter and Spring decorations on sticks. From pink and purple glittered butterflies to yellow and green glittered tulips! Are you planning on hosting a GARDEN or ┬áBIRTHDAY party soon? Grab some of these to stash away – your wallet will thank you later!

I also loved the large tulip felt motifs below! Hang them on your wall behind the party table for an easy + inexpensive backdrop!
