The Dollar Tree is the perfect place to buy craft supplies! They have so much to choose from- and a lot of it is just as good as the expensive stuff! Keep reading to learn what craft supplies you should buy at the Dollar Tree!
Any crafter knows that it is so easy to spend a lot of money on crafting supplies. Have you heard the joke that crafters have two hobbies- crafting and buying craft supplies?
Well, it’s true!
I personally love to have a large stockpile of items that I can use at moment’s notice. But it can add up quickly- which is why I love buying my craft supplies at the Dollar Tree.
If you have ever taken a look at their craft section you probably know they have an impressive selection. And for the most part- it’s pretty high quality and just as good as the stuff you’d buy at the high-end craft stores.
Many Dollar Tree stores have incorporated “Crafter’s Square” which is basically a crafting heaven. Everytime I stop in, I’m always impressed with what my store has. I’ve even heard that some stores have some Cricut knock-offs, which I can’t wait to get my hands-on (you know how much we love Dollar Tree Cricut Projects around here!)
With that said, not everything is worth buying! I’ve rounded up THE best craft supplies as well as the ones to skip- so you don’t have to. These are supplies we personally love to buy, along with ones that have the top ratings on DollarTree.com. Happy Crafting!
