22 Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Ideas
Wow! Y’all loved my last Christmas DIY Decor roundup so much that I decided to make one that features my favorite 22 Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Ideas! Each DIY craft in this post was made with all or almost all Dollar Tree items!
I’ve broken the Christmas DIYs up into categories: Canvas, Mophead, Sign Box, Red Truck, Kitchen Items, Cardboard, and Other.
Each project title and image are linked to the associated blog that contains step-by-step instructions, a video tutorial, a supply list, and more pictures!
It’s no secret that I adore using Dollar Tree canvases in my DIY projects. One of my favorite ways to use a canvas is to remove the actual canvas and only use the frame.
I get asked what I do with the scrap canvas once I remove it from the wood frame, so I used leftover canvas from #3 to make a bow for a Dollar Tree Ornament Sign during a Facebook Live.
That Christmas DIY isn’t on the blog yet, but you can watch the Facebook Live Replay if you want!
1. DIY Dollar Tree Reverse Canvas Christmas Tree Decor
For this Dollar Tree Christmas DIY, I removed the canvas from its frame, stained the frame brown, and replaced the canvas with a piece of scrapbook paper.
Next, I folded several pieces of Dollar Tree wired garland into a V shape and hot glued them in the shape of a Christmas Tree. Add some yarn for garland and a small star, and you’re done!
2. Farmhouse Christmas Sign with Changeable Napkin Bow
When I made this Chippy Christmas sign with interchangeable bows, I had several people concerned that I wasted a perfectly good canvas.
You can actually cut up the canvas and use it in the bow! I made 3 different napkin bows to change out on this DIY Christmas sign.

3. How to Make a Dollar Tree Chippy Church DIY Farmhouse Decor
If you’re worried about wasting your Dollar Tree canvas, then you’ll want to see this easy Christmas Decor DIY! I removed the canvas from the frame, stained the frame, painted the canvas, and then reattached it to the frame.
The chippy churches were made with craft sticks! Check out the blog post if you want to learn how to do my chippy paint technique!
Who would ever think that Dollar Tree mopheads are so perfect for DIY crafts? I love using them to embellish my crafts, but I think they are too perfect for Christmas decor DIYs!
They remind me of snow, or Santa’s beard, and just really get me in the holiday spirit!
4. Dollar Tree Easy Gnomes DIY
I actually made two gnomes with Dollar Tree cleaning supplies! One has a mop string beard, and the other has a Dollar Tree duster beard. I also used the Dollar Tree duster to create the brim of this Santa gnome’s hat.
The bases of these gnomes were made with a Dollar Tree sign. box, but I think the featured item is the mophead!
Check out the blog post to see the second gnome!
5. DIY Dollar Tree Mop Head Christmas Letter Board
Dollar Tree mop strings are crucial for this Christmas letterboard DIY. I made a frame out of Dollar Tree Tumbling Tower blocks and then hot glued mop strings across the entire back of the frame.
Then I painted Dollar Tree letters and a Dollar Tree Christmas Tree cutout and hot glued small pieces of velcro fastener to the back of each one.
The velcro makes the letters and tree stick to the mop strings, and now you have a Christmas DIY letterboard!
6. DIY Dollar Tree Mop Head Christmas Tree Sign
If you love to decoupage, then you’ll probably love this Christmas decor DIY! You decoupage a napkin to a Dollar Tree sign, cover a Dollar Tree plastic Christmas Tree with Dollar Tree mop strings, and glue it onto the decoupaged wood.
Add some embellishments and a hanger, and you’re done!
7. Dollar Tree Shabby Farmhouse Christmas Sign DIY
This might be one of my favorite DIY projects that I have made with a Dollar Tree mophead! I used a Dollar Tree chalkboard frame that I pulled the chalkboard piece off of and hot glued mop strings across the hole.
Then I used my chippy paint technique to chippy the wood frame, hot glued scrabble letters from Amazon and made a messy bow from the ribbon.
To hang it up, I used a piece of Dollar Tree wired garland and hot glued the ends to the back of the frame.
Dollar Tree has a variety of shapes and sizes of their sign boxes. You can almost always find the small square and rectangle sign boxes, but they also have house-shaped sign boxes and triangle sign boxes.
I love these because, even though I don’t always like the design on the front of them, I can flip them around and decoupage or paint the inside and it gives it a shadow-box look!
8. How to Make a DIY Christmas Tree Shelf Decor
For this Dollar Tree sign box DIY, I decoupaged the inside with a piece of scrapbook paper and decoupaged a small Christmas Tree cutout with a piece of Dollar Tree polka dot fabric.
The little star tree topper is also decoupaged with Dollar Tree red buffalo check fabric. I used a Dollar Tree duster to make the faux snow at the bottom and Dollar Tree craft sticks to make the roof!
9. How to Make an Easy Christmas Ornament DIY
This DIY Christmas Ornament just shows the versatility of a Dollar Tree sign box! I used one of Dollar Tree’s smallest sign boxes and decoupaged the inside, just like with the previous Christmas DIY decor.
Then all you have to do is hot glue the red truck, mini Christmas Tree, Merry Christmas stickers, and the small buffalo check bow! Add the jute twine hanger, and it’s ready for your Christmas Tree!
10. Dollar Tree DIY Farmhouse Christmas Sign
One of my favorite features of this Dollar Tree Farmhouse Christmas sign is that it could be easily modified to make this an everyday decor.
Instead of decoupaging holiday scrapbook paper, you could use a regular pattern or solid color, and just like that, it is perfect for any time of the year!
This is another great DIY project if you love to decoupage, and would be an easy craft for kids! Several of these 22 Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Ideas would be great kid’s craft ideas!
I love truck decor in general, but there is just something so classic about a red truck with a Christmas Tree in its bed. If you can’t find a red truck or one with the Christmas tree in the back, they are easy to paint and customize for Christmas!
11. Easy Dollar Tree Christmas Truck DIY
Making this Christmas Red Truck DIY was so much fun, and it taught me to never overestimate the power of hot glue! Sometimes, you have to put down the hot glue gun and use something different!
The red truck was made of wood, and I was trying to attach it to a Dollar Tree metal serving tray. Let’s just say, the hot glue was not strong enough! I had to use some E6000 glue to get a secure bond between the wood and metal.
Also, I did the faux rust finish on the truck myself! If you want to learn the technique I used, the step-by-step instructions are in the blog post for this Christmas Decor DIY.
12. Dollar Tree DIY Red Truck Christmas Decor
I LOVE how the red truck just POPS on the white sign! I used a Dollar Tree sign (the back of it) that I painted white and hot glued the adorable red truck to it.
Then, I added the rub-on transfer letters to spell Merry Christmas and made an adorable ribbon bow to go on the hanger.
This is another super easy DIY craft for kids!
Sometimes, I think we get too caught up in using craft supplies in our DIY projects that we miss out on amazing opportunities to create some super cute DIY decor!
There are so many ways to use items that aren’t traditionally meant for crafting, like pizza pans and salt and pepper shakers, so here are some of my favorite DIY crafts using kitchen items!

Finally, I made an x bow and hot glued it with some Dollar Tree Christmas greenery above the Bless this Nest design.
14. Dollar Tree Pizza Pan Christmas DIY
This was the first pizza pan project that I made, and I love it as much now as I did when I first made it! Instead of the Dollar Tree Simply Blessed Calendar, I used a Dollar Tree Be Brave 2021 Calendar!

If cutting board wasn’t in the title, would you ever be able to tell that I made this DIY Christmas sign with a Dollar Tree cutting board?

I think that cardboard is a great item to use when you want to keep your DIY crafts extremely affordable!
Cardboard is extremely easy to cute, paint, and decoupage, so you can recreate almost anything with just cardboard!
I also like to separate the layers of cardboard to reveal the corrugated center because it adds some great texture and detail to your DIY crafts, and looks just like corrugated scrapbook paper that you find at Hobby Lobby or Michael’s!
17. Dollar Tree Christmas Decor DIY With Cardboard
This Dollar Tree Christmas Decor is a prime example of substituting cardboard in place of something more expensive.
I created a Christmas Tree template from a wooden Christmas Tree cutout from Target and used the template on a piece of cardboard.
I separated the layers of the cardboard to reveal the corrugated center and give the Christmas Tree more detail.
The backboard is a Dollar Tree sign that I decoupaged Add some embellishments and a hanger, and you’re ready to hang it in your home!
