Dollar Tree DIY Wall Decor Ideas – Pier One Inspired


in this video I’m going to show you how
to make this interesting wall decor piece using all items from the Dollar
Tree so if you want to learn how I did it and well then follow me what’s up
glue dots I me laying the midnight crafter hiding out in my bedroom because
it’s the only quiet place I could find right now today’s project is a pure one
inspired wall decor art my last pair one inspired wall decor art it was super
popular so this one’s completely different and the funny thing is it is
completely different than the wall art that inspired it so I started out trying
to make that one wasn’t working taking too long I thought there’s got to be
quicker way my fingers were killing me and then I ended up morphing into it
just a completely different project but different but much easier super cheap to
make inexpensive wool sir we won’t say cheap super inexpensive to make and
actually pretty fun so I’m really excited to show it to you and see what
you guys think let me know down in the comments below what you do think of that
project also if you’re liking my videos and the effort that I’m putting in give

you’re interested in winning that that’s the place to do it so good luck and oh I
don’t want to forget I do have a Facebook group called midnight crafter
glue dots so I would love to see your posts of projects that you are remaking
of the projects that I have posted because it’s really cool to see how you
guys modify and change up and put your time
in your creativity on the projects that I have come up with so please feel free
to head on over there and join that group and post away because I can’t wait
to see it’s so much fun that’s kind of a great feedback for me because I’m
putting this out for you and then you guys put that back to me and then I can
see how it worked out and it’s awesome so enough chitter-chatter because I’ve
been told lately a couple times that I talk too much
so let’s go do it so starting out what we’re gonna do is
take our foam board and you can take any size that you want and using your pencil
kind of get an idea of like how you want your image to be and kind of figure out
how you want your rolling hills to go not that you have to stick to that when
you do it but you know just to give you a general idea and then you can play
with that as you go from there kind of figuring out the placement of where you
would like your trees to go and again you may change it as you go along but
that’s fine just if you feel comfortable not doing
it with a pencil and just going straight right from the get-go then go for it
and I usually like to do things with decorating or with anything like that
you usually want to do things in odd numbers so I’m going to do probably
three trees on here and different sizes so that they look like they’re a little
more dimensional so I’m kind of just giving it no real end to the branches
just sort of midair so don’t worry too much if they’re
perfect or not don’t overthink it I just try and give a little bit of variety so
the next step we’re gonna do now that we have that drawn out is we’re gonna take
any kind of piece of plastic this is the lid to cremini mushrooms that I used for
dinner last night so I’m just gonna cut this piece off if
any piece of plastic you can use the container top from a coffee can anything
plastic is better because the moisture from the caulk will end up kind of
softening any paper so I’ve cut out my square here and all I’m going to do on
one of the edges I’m just gonna cut out some tiny little triangles and you don’t
have to worry about them being super symmetrical or perfect because that is
what’s going to add really some nice dimension to your project go across all
the way across your piece and make those cuts and we’re going to be using that to
make the texture of our Hills so we’re using or we’re going to probably be
using two tubes of the caulking so what you’re going to want to do is one of
them you want to just cut a big big hole on it because that’s mainly how you’re
going to be getting a lot of product out for you to do some of the main work so
this is where you’re going to just be putting this on give me this stuff every
time it farts on me every time but just mostly here just squeeze it out we’re
going to be spreading that out a bit so using a popsicle stick I’m going to kind
of spread this again don’t worry about it being perfect because you’re going to
go over it with the plastic piece that we just cut up to give it some texture
okay so now we’re gonna use this little piece of
plastic or whatever you used for that and you’re just gonna go over this and
just make a textured make it textured I don’t know and you can kind of play with
that texture and just wherever you want to change up the direction or if you
want to bring your hills coming different ways this is your project so
have fun with it they’re your hills so they can be
however you want them to be and the texture looks amazing at the end when we
spray-paint it so don’t be afraid to really get in there and make some nice
designs the next thing we’re gonna do is work on our trees and the way you’re
going to do that same way you’re going to put the caulking down in position to
pretty much follow your tree line know if you guys can see my lines but and
then you’re just gonna use your skewer stick because this gives great texture
to the tree and it looks very realistic while realistic I guess for an art
project but it looks really cool once it’s painted so you’re just gonna spread
this with the end of your skewer stick I think I’m going to make this one tree
come down into the grass area or my hillside area now as I get kind of the
ends I sort of taper it off I’m not really having a blunt edge on those I’ll
put a link in up above or at the end one of the two or maybe both if you haven’t
seen my last video which was a mosaic video you may want to watch that because
another idea for this would be to make some of the leaves the way that I made
them for that mosaic video and put the leaves on here that would be absolutely
gorgeous but since I’ve already done that we’re going to do something a
little different here for this project and you know you can always combine the
two projects together excellent so the next thing we’re gonna
do is you’re going to be using the caulking one of the tubes and you’re
only going to cut a very tiny hole so this tube I did not use entirely so you
really could get away with doing this with two tubes but we do definitely need
the tip to be much smaller for this next part so we’re going to just very very
close to the edge there cut off just as little as possible so that the hole is
small as compared to the last one we did where we cut it much further and get it
much larger hole so you can do get a lot more out of there so now is where we’re
gonna be doing our little swirls and are not really leaves but kind of leaves
so start wherever you want I’m going to start on the tip and just vary a little
bit make sure you go around and around and around and go slowly don’t rush on
this part and make sure that the caulking is actually sticking down
touching down on the foam board when you’re doing it so we’re gonna go around
and just do all of those in various places kind of work our way around this
is just so so cool once it’s painted now if your swirls end up a little funky
don’t panic don’t worry about it it just makes it that much more interesting and
unique so like see that swirls not all perfect but just make it your own and
make it unique up see like a big chunk out of that one
but it does look really cool in the long run so don’t worry about it
periodically wipe the tip off because if you don’t it sometimes starts to dry up
a bit and it will make it a little harder to make your swirls also as you
go along and the tube starts to get emptier you can sort of start to fold it
down to make it a little easy on your hand and not have to squeeze as
much so I’m pretty satisfied with the way this is looking at this point now
the hard part is letting this dry you don’t have to let it dry completely
before spray-painting it which is nice but we’re gonna let it dry a little bit
at least and then I just also wanted to show you that I used about I would say
3/4 of this tube so you can get all the little swirls depending again on how big
your project is or how many swirls you make so I think realistically from what
I have left that you can do this with two tubes of caulking altogether so
while I’m waiting for this to dry a little bit I’m going to put it aside and
since I already know we’re gonna have to do are get our bring okay cap bring back
my parakeet ah I already know we’re gonna need to prep our bling wrap we
only need one row of this so I’m going to be cutting this because I had this
piece but you can buy this at Dollar Tree in I think three or five rows it
comes in but we’re only going to be using a single row and we’re going to be
once everything is dry we’re gonna be actually gluing this around the outer
edge to cover that raw edge of the foam core board okay so this haven’t been all
that long but it has started a little bit to dry I can see some of the edges
drying so I’m gonna go out and give it a spray with my wrist Oleum metallic spray
paint you can use any color you want anything you want I really like the
metallics because it gives it really elegant and expensive look to this so
I’m gonna get that sprayed and let it dry and so this is completely dry while
I shouldn’t say completely dry it’s not so much that you could really put a lot
of pressure on it but it’s dry enough that we can actually go ahead and start
gluing our bling wrap around so we’re gonna do that and then we’re gonna do
the final steps so just put your glue with your hot glue gun along this edge
and then we’re just going to be gluing down this bling wrap so that it has just
a little bit of a finished look and not a raw egg like that okay so the edge is
all on there all the way around I’ve got a nice finished edge and the next thing
we’re gonna be doing is adding and it’s actually the final touch I’m gonna take
some black paint in a paper towel with your dry paper towel you’re gonna put a
little bit of black paint and then you’re gonna sort of swish it on there
so that it’s into the paper towel and then what we’re gonna be doing is just
going directly onto the silver part while the whole thing silver so that’s
kind of lame the raised part you’re just going to go over that with your black
paint and this kind of adds a bit more to the dimension and breaks up that
overabundance of silver if you like that that much silver great I just I think it
looks really nice to sort of break it up a bit I mean you don’t have to do it you
don’t have to do anything you don’t want to because we actually are gonna be
putting a little bit on to that background afterwards but but I don’t
want it to be too dark on that background right now which is why I’m
pretty much just aiming for the branches and the the well the little squigglies
the raised parts okay so then afterwards you do want to
just break up and make I think it will add a lot to the background
all I’m gonna do with that is going to take my paper towel and dip it in just a
little bit of water to kind of really dilute down that black and even if you
want you can flip it and then we’re just gonna sort of rub over the silver part
that the background part now again if you don’t want to do this leave this
part out all right I like it I think it just adds more and breaks up I think it
gives it a more expensive look so you don’t really realize that it’s foam core
over there now you’ve got to be careful not to saturate too much because this
foam core well probably not as much now that it’s been painted but it will
absorb as you can see over here a little bit I got some wrinkled leaves because
when it was wet the paper started to lift away that was from overspray
painting so you do need to be a little careful to not overdo it with the water
all right I’m gonna be finishing this up here and then what I’m going to do is
put this up on the wall with command strips because this is such a nice and
light thing being just on the foam core that the command strips will work
beautifully on this so if you’re ready to see it oh you’re not gonna see it yet

  1. NOW I have watched the entire project and I have so so SO many thoughts swirling in my head. When I first saw the thumbnail I thought quilling. I, in no way, have the patience for quilling. As you were doing the swirls I thought how much they looked like roses. Then as you were adding the black I thought how it made it look so aged, like it might have actually been made of metal and owned by my great grandmother. Definitely gorgeous!!!!

  2. That's beautiful! The black on the raised ridges of the trees was a great idea, I personally would have done some color onto the swirled ridges but it turned out great!! Thanks so much for sharing, hun!

  3. That's beautiful and a great idea! I didnt realized paper was on top of the foam. I need to watch and listen again. Thank you… i love itโฃ๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. Elaine…. you don't stop amazing me with these great project!…. That is so awesome… I have to try that one too…. still working on getting stuff for the last one.. our dollar tree is so bare.. but I was working on a tray for my dresser. and I just finished it this week. did it with a door mirror , I purchased at Walmart… and I am so proud.. will try to send you picture.. thank for the new idea… I have a few ideas in my head on this project…

  5. OOOOOH MY GOODNESS THAT'S BEAUTIFUL LOL. I JUST MOVED IN A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE DO U THANK I CAN USE CARDBOARD THAT IS LEFT OVER

  6. This is simply beautiful and I think you did a awesome job on it ๐Ÿ‘ TFS have a wonderful evening my friend โ™ฅ๏ธ

  7. I have an idea might you try it like a night scene but do it on a canvas. But do the same layout with the hills and trees etc. But do it on a canvas with the caulking etc then do the hills with brown for dirt and green for grass paint. Then on the sky background cut holes so little lights can be poked through so you can turn them on at night. The tree painted with brown & the black or maybe just black. I don't have the money to go out and buy all the supplies but your subscribers might like to see something like this. Just an idea if you would like to try it for us. I would like to see it both ways to decide which way I like it best and great for another idea

  8. The project is beautiful too! And easy enough that I think I'll give it a try! Thanks for your imagination and work.

  9. I love this sooo muchโฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
    Thank you also, for using silver…itโ€™s my favorite metal, but too many people default to using gold. I am definitely adding this project to my โ€œmust makeโ€ file!

  10. You go girl! I love this. I know exactly the type of texture I'm going to do, now I just have to figure out what type of design I'm going to make. Thank you so much for the video and inspiration! Have a beautiful night โค๏ธ

  11. Love it! Great idea! I wonder if it'd make me happier in blues with kinda the pinks/yellows I've seen at Turagain Arm in Alaska. We have time delay pictures so I can't OD it.

  12. In your previous Mosaic video, you tinted the caulk, I believe I might try doing that on this project. I love how your mind works, thank you! โค๏ธ

  13. Wow! So pretty and elegant! Dunno how you come up with the ideas to make your own versions!! Love it!! You rock Elaine!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜
