I had so much making this Dollar Tree Crate Craft (Fall Scene) with you all the other night I knew I had to make a blog post for it! This would be so much fun to do with the kiddos! You could send them on a scavenger hunt for the pinecones and sticks and then sit down and craft together. I love the addition of the tea light by the fire wood. I think it makes it look like a camp fire. Let me show you how simple and fun this was to make!
- 4 crates from the Dollar Tree
- White chalk paint
- Antique wax
- Spanish Moss
- Pumpkins (I bought mine at Dollar General)
- sticks (I bought mine at Dollar Tree)
- tooth pick
- small piece of brown paper (card stock will work nicely)
- pine cones (I bought mine at Dollar Tree )
- Tea light
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Step 1: Paint all the crates with white chalk paint or any color of your choice.
Step 2: Hot glue the crates together so they are stacked two on the bottom and two on the top. Make sure the openings are all facing the same way.
Step 3: If you wish to give your crates the chippy wood look now is the time! To do this dip your paint brush in antique wax, brush some off, and then begin to brush the crates until you achieve the look you are wanting.
Step 4: Hot glue Spanish moss to the bottom of each crate.
Step 5: Using some sticks from the dollar tree, hot glue them together to make a little bundle of wood. Then take some twine and wrap it around the bundle a few times and tie a cute bow at the top. Place the wood in one of the crates and catty corner it off to the side a bite. Next, cut a little square of brown paper or yardstick and write fire wood (or anything cute!) on it with a sharpie. Hot glue the paper to a toothpick that has been stained with antique wax. Trim the tooth pick to the size you want and stick it in the same crate as the fire wood but on the opposite side. Finally, add a tea light between the bundle of wood and the fire wood sign. You can hot glue a little spanish moss to the front of the tea light so it blends in a little better.
Step 6: In another crate hot glue pine cones. You can gather your own pinecones from your yard, but I chose to buy the small scented ones from the Dollar Tree. This will make your project smell good!
Step 7: In the last two crates add some pumpkins! I added a bigger one and a smaller one to each crate. The ones that I used came in a pack at Dollar General.. they are super cute!
