DIY projects are a great way to save money and be creative. But sometimes it can be hard to know where to start.

Don’t worry! With a little imagination, you can use dollar store supplies from the tool aisle to create some amazing projects. Here are some tips to get you started:

Light Bulbs

I was just in Dollarama and I was shook at the variety of light bulbs available. They come in every shape and size and they are perfect for the DIYer. Create fabulous high end lit wooden signs. Use to create whimsical hanging terrariums or floral decor. During Christmas use these cheap bulbs to create lit wooden Christmas tree displays, Christmas tree ornaments, or use to embellish front door wreaths.

Contact Cement

What DIYer doesn’t love a shot of hot glue? But it’s always good to have an alternative and contact cement can make for a great plan B. It is especially great for adhering leather, metal sheeting, or linoleum to wood surfaces. The stuff is permanent though, so keep that in mind when using.

Most Flexible of the Dollar Store Supplies! Zip Ties

Useful for more than just organizing your cords and wires. Zip ties are fantastic for hanging up decorative lights, creating decorative bows, bundling faux floral stems together or attaching embellishments to wreaths and garlands.


May need a little spray paint to increase their visual appeal but these humble hunks of metal are fantastic for hanging macrame wall art or curtain panels. You could use them in the kitchen, craft room, laundry room or bathroom to hang small buckets from.

Command Hooks

Command hooks are the DIYers best friend. They’re the perfect solution for hanging temporary wall art. At Christmas I love to use them to hang wreaths on windows, cabinet doors, mirrors, or on the backs of chairs. They’re also great for hanging party decor, creating a photo booth or for making backdrops. For every day use try spray paint them to make them look a little higher end.

Cabinet Knobs / Pulls

Much much like wall hooks. Cabinet knobs are the perfect solution for displaying jewelry or creating whimsical wall art. Use them to top DIY tiered trays, as glass jar toppers, or attach to wooden trays for handles. Another decor idea is to use cabinet knobs in place of wall hooks.

Foam Ear Plugs

Yes, this is a little bit out there but stay with me. Chop these up into smaller pieces and use as base protectors to protect pieces from scratching up glass or mirrored surfaces. Or use as a way to pop embellishments off of surfaces for creating wall art, seasonal wooden signs or Christmas ornaments.
