Dollar Tree supplies online



Hi everyone~many of you have been saying your Dollar Trees are out of the supplies~just wanted to let you know you can get the hurricanes and the candlesticks online in cases of 6 or 12, but you have to pay a $5 handling fee per order, and either free shipment to a Dollar Tree, or pay extra to have it shipped to your home. I don't see the white candle online, but also remember that by the time you pay for handling, shipping, etc. you may be able to make it less expensive with supplies from Walmart, Hob Lob or Michaels with coupons, or better yet, you may have most of it around your house. Just wanted to let you know~ good luck! I'd love to see your finished products if you make one, send it my way~
I don't have any affiliation with the Dollar Tree, but I would love to meet anyone who goes in there and spends just one dollar. Can it be done?
Favorite Things Party tomorrow!

  1. It can be done!

    To be fair, though, I was only replacing a bag of ornaments my doggie thought were toys for her!

  2. No, I never spend just $1. I always find too many things. Hugs, Marty

  4. Your glass hurricane idea is brilliant Melissa! In Canada, we have a Dollar Store (same idea) but I have never seen anything like your hurricane glass jars in there :-). And no, I have NEVER walked out after just spending a dollar ~ don't think it can be done! Looking forward to tomorrow's party.

  6. Spend $1! HaHaHaHa!

    I'm lucky if I make it out of there under $20 - to be fair though I only go once every couple of months.

    Love your idea, may have to make my own.

    Need a little help. I bought these for presents and used hot glue, to attach the base to the hurricane glass.  I checked them 24 hours later and each based popped off. They did not adhere at all.  Did anyone else have this problem or is there another product to use. I feel I must have not done it right.

    Hi Laura~ if you read in the original post and comments http://www.320sycamoreblog.com/2009/11/dollar-store-version-of-ws-glass.htmlwe recommended e6000 if hot glue doesn't work. Good luck!

    I can't find the candles.  I would have thought this would have been the easiest of the three items to find, but apparently it's not for me.  Any suggestions?

    I bought the lamp at Dollar Tree, but the candle at Family Dollar and it is taller than the lamp is.  The candle is 8 in.  How tall should the lamp be?
