Chic Damask Magnetic Memo Board, Dollar Tree Crafting

Hey ladies, well I’ve been rummaging around the the Dollar Tree again, and yes I had to sneak in three bag of stuff!  I found the cutest little silver colored metal trays there that look like little fancy serving trays.  They aren’t large, the oval tray which I used in this tutorial measures 12″ x 8 1/2″.

Supplies you will need:
Metal Tray
Scrapbook paper
Buttons, vintage jewelry – or what ever you wish to create the magnets
Glue – Elmers and E-6000
Mod Podge
Coordinating Ribbon

This little memo board is so… crazy easy.  In order o coordinate with my new little craft space I chose this black & white damask print Scrapbook Paper, which I bought for 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby.  First you will need to cut your paper to fit into the flat part of the tray, once this is cute glue down with Elmers.  I let mine dry for a day and then covered with Mod Podge.

For the shabby chic magnets I used pieces of vintage jewelry, a velvet ribbon rose and buttons that I had on hand.  All I had to do was glue a magnet to each one using the E-6000!

Once your little tray is dry, turn over and glue your ribbon to the back (I used E-6000 for this part), tie and big pretty bow and it/s ready to hang!  I used a Shabby Chic
1 1/2″ satin ribbon that I already had on hand.

Dollar Crafting – Fall Jute & Felt Rose Wreath

I am so…. excited we are having our first day that feels like fall, cool temps and even rain!!!

I made another (secret trip) to the Dollar Tree this weekend and found the best craft supplies to create the sweet little Fall Wreath.


  • Styrofoam Wreath $1.00
  • Jute string $1.00
  • Bag of silk oak leaves $1.00
  • Berry Spray $1.00
  • Felt or Fabric that you already have on hand
  • Glue
Wrap your Styrofoam wreath form with the jute string, Tip – I ended up wrapping mine with muslin ribbon so that the green Styrofoam didn’t show through.  Once you have that all nicely wrapped glue on your Fall oak leaves.  To make the felt roses cut yourself a circle of felt, cut this into a spiral and wrap around itself.  Here is agreat and easy tutorial for making these little roses from Little Things Big Smiles Blog. Now glue these on top of the leaves, add a few berries for a little of accent.
This wreath took be about an hour total to create with a total cost of about $4.00!
