Buying blanks or vinyl crafts can add up fast – but the Dollar Tree can make your crafting addiction a little more affordable. Here are the best Dollar Tree blanks for vinyl crafts!
Blanks for Vinyl Crafting
Two of my favorite things in the whole world are my Cricut machine and The Dollar Tree.
Both have done wonders at saving me so much money while letting me create projects and custom things for my home.
Cricut has a wide variety of products you can buy online, but they can be a little pricey.
If you are looking for blanks that you can use for your Cricut or other crafting projects, you can’t beat the price of a dollar!
The Dollar Tree has so many great products that work great for Cricut and crafting projects, and I wanted to share with you some of my favorites here.
Crafting Blanks for Cricut
I don’t usually suggest buying online from the Dollar Tree, just because it typically has to be bought in bulk. However, with crafting – you often want to buy in bulk. So The Dollar Tree’s website can be a great resource, especially if you are having any trouble finding these items in stock locally. Shipping is just $4.95!
If you head to the electronics and tech section of your Dollar Tree, you’ll find a bunch of blank cell phone cases. They come in a variety of colors so you can customize them however you’d like!
I have not found these in EVERY Dollar Tree, but many of them have started to carry a few different sizes of small canvases. They aren’t huge – but they are only a dollar.
My Dollar Tree had canvases in 4×6, 5×7, 6×8 and 8×10. Again, these may not be available everywhere – but what a steal!
These would be great for doing a reverse canvas project.
You can actually buy them online, so if you want to buy a bunch, this would be your best option.
I just recently found that my Dollar Tree is stocking t-shirts in all different sizes these days (even little ones for Toddlers). I was SO excited when I discovered this the other day. Definitely one of their best buys if your store carries them.
I have not seen these available online.
The Dollar Tree has a bunch of beautiful frames that are perfect for crafting projects! You can use them to create a collage wall in your home, add wall art to your walls, or use the frames to make unique art projects!
Mugs and Cups
The Dollar Tree has a bunch of glasses, travel mugs, and other types of beverage cups that you can use to make your own custom cup! You can print your own witty saying, and they use the cup! Just make sure to hand wash them.
They usually have a nice variety of tumblers (cups with lids and straws) that I know are always super popular for vinyl projects!
Here is the online selection for several of these items:
These are more common during the summer months, but you can find plenty of decent quality plain totes at The Dollar Tree.
The Dollar Tree has a bunch of plain gift bags that you can customize for gifts! You will have the best luck going anytime that’s not near the Christmas season; otherwise, you’ll find mostly Christmas-themed bags. Head to the gift section, not the seasonal section, to find these.
The Dollar Tree has a massive selection of storage bins and containers! You can gather a bunch of these to organize any space in your home! To give them a more personalized touch, I like to create a label for the bin, so I always know what’s inside.
These can be really helpful if you are wanting to do some customized Dollar Tree organization!
Some Dollar Trees will have pet bowls in their pet section. While there are some plastic bowls with bones on them, there are plenty of bowls with no designs! You can use these to make your own custom bowl for your furry friend!
During the Back to School Season, you’ll find a wide variety of notebooks at The Dollar Tree. Throughout the year, you can sometimes find one or two designs, but the best time to look is during back to school season.
Have you ever done iron-on projects with a stuffed animal? They are seriously so cute! The Dollar Tree always has a great supply of stuffed animals -, especially during the holidays.
Want to make your own flip flops? Head to the Dollar Tree during the spring and summer months! You’ll find a bunch of different colors of flip flops with no designs! You can easily print your own designs to make a pair of flip flops for just $1!
While the selection at The Dollar Tree is going to be extremely limited, these items should be available at most Dollar Tree locations.
Note that most Dollar Stores cycle their inventory with the season, and some Dollar Trees carry a lot more than others!
So be sure to check back and shop at multiple stores to help you find what you’re looking for.
