Patriotic Dollar Store Find - Part I

I'm part of the reason why dollar stores exist in this country. I get completely caught up when I enter one because everything is so affordable! So the other day I found some red and blue miniature watering cans - is it just me, or does everything look irresistible in miniature form?


I also found some red and blue tablecloth weights...


I combined both of those items together to create a party favor for a 4th of July shindig.


This is super easy to make. I bought three watering cans, one can of white spray paint and sisal twine. Since the watering cans and tablecloth weights only came in blue and red, I spray painted one set white. I then removed the clip from the weight and tied it onto the can with twine. Finally I added some hydrangeas from my garden and that's it!


Stay tuned for more patriotic dollar store finds coming soon!

Hi Margarita! Sorry to keep you in suspense - it's Dollar Tree, the one store where everything really costs just $1!
