HOW TO TURN INEXPENSIVE DOLLAR STORE FRAMES AND FAUX GREENERY INTO GORGEOUS 3D-INSPIRED WALL ART!
This may be one of the easiest and fastest DIY projects I’ve ever shared with you! I’ve used dollar store supplies to create this DIY Dollar Store Art but you can easily do this with what you have at home! Super simple but I LOVE how it all came together. I hope it inspires some crafty ideas for you as well. These will be perfect for staging and styling my painted furniture!
It’s also Trash To Treasure Tuesday where I share my bestie blogging friends’ makeovers. I’ll be sharing their links below and can’t wait to see what they’ve transformed this month as well.
Here are the dollar store frames I started with. Have you noticed the dollar store doesn’t have anything priced at a dollar anymore? 😆 The faux greenery are bits I’ve had laying around for years but they originally came from the dollar store as well.
Here’s the new look… 3D wall art!
What do you think, aren’t they cute? The total cost is less than $4 each!

DOLLAR STORE DIY WALL ART
This entire project can be put together in about 15 minutes minus the dry time for the spray paint. There are also SO many possibilities in what you can put in these frames. Dried flowers or greenery, baby shoes, branches, shells, any kind of momentos really. If you can glue it down and you like the looks of it, it can work!
TAKE APART FRAME
I started by removing the backs and matting from the dollar store frames.
ADD MARBLE CONTACT PAPER
No measuring was required. I laid the cardboard backing of the frame onto the contact paper and cut around it using a utility craft knife. I peeled off the contact paper and positioned the top perfectly on the corners. Then using a craft stick I smoothed it out as I was adhering it so there were no bubbles or creases.
SPRAY PAINT GREENERY
To create the gold greenery I used metallic paint and primer in this Champagne Mist. Two coats were required and I let it dry for about an hour between each coat.
CUT TO SIZE
Once it was dry, I cut the ferns to fit inside the frame.
DONE! Here’s the finished look…
