$15 Easter Wreath from Dollar Tree

Who doesn’t like a bargain on a budget? I found all of these supplies for $15 at my local Dollar Tree. With a little ingenuity and a lot of hot glue, I created a cute Easter wreath for the spring season. If you’re looking for some inspiration, here you go!


Overnight Curly Hair Moisture Mask

I have extremely curly, textured, dry hair.  I have battled with my hair every day of my life.  In my mid-twenties I stopped fighting the curl and just decided to give in to it.  At the end of the summer my hair is usually on its last leg.  I use this mask overnight with a shower cap or plastic wrap.  When you rinse out in the morning your hair will feel TERRIBLE!  Please be forewarned.  Shampoo and condition as you normally would to reveal soft, moisture soaked hair.


1 can coconut milk
2 eggs yolks
1 avocado
2 tbls honey

Process all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

I pour mine into a squirt bottle and apply liberally. I brush this through my hair and wrap it with saran wrap or use a disposable hotel shower cap.  Let it soak for at least 8 hours.  (It smells nice too)

After shampooing and conditioning….soft restored curls.

Make your own “Planter” Litter Box

Ever priced one of those fancy discreet cat boxes online?  I couldn’t believe the price tag on the planter style cat boxes!  $180-$215 was out of the question.

Surely I could do better with a quick trip to Lowes and Michael’s.

Supplies needed:
Planter with a Bottom Dish ($15-25)
Moss Sheet ($2.50)
Artificial Plants ($15.00)
Wrapped Wire
Hot Glue Gun
Sand Paper
Spiral Saw

Total : $33-$45

I first made my hole in the planter with a Spiral Saw and sanded the rough edges.


Next I gathered up the supplies for the arrangement on top. Use the dish that would normally go under your planter as your lid. You can feel free to do this with any plants you chose. I first glued down green moss as my base so that the plastic was not as noticeable. I found my plants on clearance at Michael’s and wired them together in an attractive arrangement.  Glue the plants to the moss and edges of the lid.


That’s it. Fill with kitty litter and let your feline friends do their business.
