A FEW Craft Supplies for Valentine’s Day – at the Dollar Tree
Crafters – craft in bulk for Valentine’s Day at the Dollar Tree. When you buy Valentine’s craft supplies at the Dollar Tree, you can save yourself a lot of time and money especially if you get friends to split the cost. Save even more with shipping It To Your Local Dollar Tree Store For FREE*!
With Valentine’s Day upon us – you can make some fun crafts or decorations for your home and/or those you love. For that matter, you could even sell your creations.
Here’s a Couple of Craft Ideas/Gifts:
Make a heart wreath. Start with the wire heart seen above. Figure out your base (moss glued to a piece of cardboard in the same shape, attached to the form using craft wire; burlap ribbon, silk flowers), add roses, teddy bears, heart picks, bows, candy – anything that appeals to your senses – attach with craft wire or a glue gun.
Alternatively, you could make a mug bouquet. Start with a mug, add Styrofoam inside (to hold your picks in place) attach a teddy bear (only one of many stuffed animals to chose from – there are monkeys, love bugs, chocolate scented teddies) to a pick with craft wire, add roses or heart picks (or both), glue candy to a pick(s), add moss around the top of the mug or roses around the top (cut off the stems and glue or just cut the stems shorter and insert), attach a Valentine’s Card and you’ll have yourself a gift.
Another idea – that red bottle you see in the banner below, the heart shaped one – turn that into a vase for a single rose and Baby’s Breath or add some lantern oil and a wick (the one with the plastic circle at the top that keeps the wick straight and in place), add some ribbon and you’ve got a nice center piece for dinner or a party.
Craft and Save with Friends
If you haven’t the need for so many supplies – ask a couple of friends to join in on the crafting and split the cost. Maybe you’re a teacher and other teachers would like to save some money too. Or maybe there’s a party you’ll be attending where the tables could be spruced up (check out the dining supplies – DT has many) – the centerpieces could be your contribution.
The Dollar Tree has a multitude of craft/decorating/celebration supplies for not only Valentine’s Day, but for other upcoming special events/day – Mardi Gras, 2/28; St. Patty’s Day, 3/17; and Easter, 4/16. Look for the banners at the top of the site – a simple click will take you where you want to shop.
And don’t forget – Dollar Tree has a ton of party supplies, Bonus Buys, plus so much more; we love their cleaning supplies – LA Awesome ROCKS our world.
Buying in bulk online saves you money, time and gas whether you’re buying Valentine Craft Supplies in bulk or cleaning supplies in bulk.
An FCS Team Member received the Crab Pot Christmas Tree in order to provide you with an honest Crab Pot Christmas Tree Review . All opinions are those of the reviewer.
Crab Pot Christmas Tree Review
Christmas happens once a year…it’s simply… magical. The story behind it. The decorations. Family traditions. The excitement children display. Everything about Santa. Though all of these things are magical, the most enjoyment as a child were the lights – the Christmas Trees lit up. The homes lit up like a light bulb.
I remember as a child, we’d drive around at night to see all the lights people had on display. As us kids got older, the outdoor decorating seemed to be less and less. Then years later, bang – people began to decorate their outdoor spaces just as I remembered as a kid – even more so.
Here we are today. People still are decorating their outdoor spaces. It’s so much fun to drive around and see all the lights and displays throughout the holiday season. Some people really, I mean really, get into it! Today there are just so many different decorations to be had. The blow up figures. The different styles/sizes of lights. The lighted deer. The lighted polar bears. The lit gift boxes. And now we can add the Crab Pot Christmas Tree to the list of decorating decor.
I’m loving the concept behind the Crab Pot Christmas Tree. The fact that it’s a space saver when not in use – is ah-mazing! We could own 6/7 of these and take up barely any space when being stored.
The Crab Pot Christmas Tree is a great invention. Take a read at what they are all about:
Crab Pot Christmas Trees are remarkable, perfectly shaped trees that are pre-lit, fold flat for storage, sparkle from EVERY angle and are easily set up. What makes these holiday trees so unique and the MUST HAVE of the season for home decor? Crab Pot Christmas Trees are made from the very durable PVC Coated Crab Pot Wire which withstands all that Mother Nature throws at it. Want to see these fold flat Crab Pot Christmas Trees? Check out the fold flat trees in this video, because seeing is believing and this is how you can make the season sparkle with ease. (See Below)
More Key Features to Keep in Mind:
The Crab Pot Tree is made in the USA
It sets up in minutes
It folds flat for storage, in minutes.
These trees can be used indoors or out.
They come with two options for wire colors – white and green.
There are 7 tree heights to choose from ranging from 1′.5″ to 8′ tall.
There are 4 styles to choose from – LED, Incandescent, Twinkler, and Twinkler LED.
There are 12 light options to choose from.
The tree is fireproof and weatherproof
The image above doesn’t do the tree justice…getting an outside shot wasn’t an option in below zero temperatures we’ve been experiencing (yes, winter arrived much too early this year). Lit, the tree lights are very bright and very pretty. One doesn’t notice the PVC wiring or light wire.
Our reviewer received a green wired 3′ Crab Pot Christmas Tree. The tree came boxed and was easy to open. Once removed and untied (securely holding the tree in the box), the tree spread out like one would spread out party honey-comb decorations. The tree was already wired with ties so that one knows just where to tie the two side sections together.
From there – simply plug the tree in and you’re good, if you’re using the tree inside. If you’re displaying the tree outside – there are seven metal U-Shaped brackets to insert over the bottom edge of the tree to hold it securely in the ground. In the package with the brackets, there were 3 packages of 4 bulbs (one being a flasher), along with 2 fuses in each package.

The PVC wire and the string of lights are sturdy. Assembly was a breeze. The lights lit bright. Decorating this tree for inside use can easily be done. For inspiration – check out all the decorated trees on the Crab Tree site. One could also decorate it for a porch or even outside if that was a preference.
Ours was not decorated. A friend saw the Crab Pot Christmas Tree and asked us where we got it. She expressed it was the perfect size to bring to her friend in an orthopedic rehab center and would like to get one so that her friend would have a tree in her room for the holiday season. We offered ours up on loan.
Storing this tree after the holiday season is over – is a space saver. It folds flat and takes up approximately 5″ in height. It can be stored in the box that it came in – in approximately the same amount of space which would preserve the tree lights well. Take a look below. We’ve folded the tree back up and put it back in its box. This took all of 5 minutes, if that.
Since our reviewer was kind enough to lend this out for the Christmas season, next year it will be on display, fully decorated, in the home. An updated picture of the decorated Crab Pot Christmas Tree awaits you come 2017. If you have any questions about the Crab Pot Christmas Tree Review – leave us a comment. We’re more than happy to answer your questions, if we have the answer.

Walgreens – also open standard hours, excepting some pharmacies. Swing by for some freebies and their Buy 2, Get 2 Free deal on most toys!

Kohl’s – If I had to choose, this is so far my favorite of ALL the Black Friday ads, because the popular $15 back in Kohl’s Cash with a $50 purchase is returning for 2016. That will result in multiple top-tier gift ideas being far cheaper here than at any other store on the list! Preview the ad
Target – Top deals include the Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge with a free $250 Target gift card plus a free Samsung Gear VR headset and a $50 Oculus content pack with purchase, and the lowest price I’ve seen so far on the Xbox One S 500GB Minecraft or Battlefield One Bundle!

Walmart opens. Best picks in the ad include the Samsung TAB E 7″ Lite Android Tablet for $69 plus a $10 free Google Play credit, the Samsung 24″ 710p 120MR LED HDTV for $98, and the best price I’ve seen so far on the Playstation 4 Slim 500GB w/ Uncharted 4 Bundle.
Big Lots -This is a big change for shoppers, since last year Big Lots was open on Thanksgiving. Instead, it looks like the chain will be hosting a big sale on Wednesday, November 23, and then reopening Black Friday morning.
HEB Plus – The popular Spend $50, Get A $10 catalina promotion runs from 6am to 11am only!
